CA – RETAILERS – Glocks, Ammo, AR-15s Sell Out As Biden Inauguration Foreshadows Tighter Gun Control

Glock handguns are selling so fast that Danielle Jaymes, general manager of Poway Weapons & Gear in Poway, California, can’t keep them in stock. Her store sold a shipment of 192 Glock 19s in a week, she said, and 9mm ammunition is so popular that she rations purchases to 100 rounds per day. “People will take whatever they can get because supplies are so limited,” she said. “If I had a million rounds of 9 mm right now, I could sell it in two days.” Americans are buying Glocks and other guns as they anticipate gun control measures from President-elect Joseph Biden, who will take office Wednesday. Carried by police officers and fetishized by rappers, Glocks are widely popular. A Glock turned up at a Capitol Police checkpoint on Friday, according to news reports, when a suspect was arrested with the loaded gun, 500 rounds and false inauguration credentials. The deadly Capitol riots by supporters of President Trump on Jan. 6 puts an uncomfortable spotlight on firearms. That day, federal authorities arrested a suspect who allegedly carried two handguns near the Capitol building, according to the Justice Department, with an M4 assault rifle and 11 homemade bombs allegedly stashed in his truck nearby. Another suspect was charged with carrying a Taurus G2C 9mm handgun on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol. Law enforcement is on high alert for more trouble at the inauguration. The Federal Bureau of Investigation warned of armed protests in 50 state capitols leading up to the inauguration, and armed protesters have appeared outside capitol buildings in Michigan, Ohio, Oregon and Texas, according to news reports. Airlines Delta, American, Southwest, United and Alaska reportedly blocked guns from checked baggage on flights bound for Washington, DC, and Airbnb canceled its D.C. bookings for the week of the inauguration.  [full article]
