Over-all gun sales are increasing at amazing rates.
Some of the magazines (Yes pro-gun magazines, like NRA and hunting mags). Are suggesting that it's for various reasons.
Even in the anemic economy people see more of a need for self-defense then when things are comfy, as crime rates rise, as do the fears of collapse.
currently the NRA is saying NICS checks have risen 29 percent compared to last month, and are 42 percent higher then in November 2007.
Sorry I cannot link a source as the physical magazine is hard to pin to the screen..
I carry 24/7. I hope I never need it. But it's there if I absolutely must.
