Orlando Terror Attack Spurs Purchasing Run On AR-15 Rifles

posted on June 17, 2016

Firearm sales have spiked across the U.S. in the wake of Sunday’s terrorist shootings in Orlando, Fla., Fox News reports.

With everyone from Hillary Clinton to President Barack Obama to the Boston Globe to Gretchen Carlson of Fox News demanding a ban on semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15—despite the fact that they’re used in a tiny proportion of violent crime—many Americans may be buying them now out of concern that they might be banned or bought out in advance of any ban.

Others may be buying them because they want the same capability to defend themselves that terrorists are using to kill Americans. As Navy SEAL veteran Dom Raso points out, “The only way for us to stay free is by having whatever gun the bad guys have.” And with its durability, reliability, accuracy, light weight and mild recoil, the AR-15 may be the ideal firearm to defend hearth and homeland.
