CA – RETAILERS – Why local gun stores are having trouble keeping supply stocked (VIDEO)

Owner of the Range Pistol Club, Robert Simpson, says they can barely keep the shelves stocked. Simpson says their sales usually go up during an election year, but between the pandemic and increased crime, he says they’ve skyrocketed. “We’re going to do 30% more business this year than last year. We have calls for defunding police, poeple (sic) are concerned,” he says.
According to the FBI, background checks in California increased by 9% between September to October. It’s up 57% from October of last year. Local stores say election uncertainty, police protests, the pandemic, and increased crime have together led to a boom in people wanting to purchase a gun. Sam Carter, a CCW instructor for Ethos Firearms and Defensive Training, says he’s noticing more people pull the trigger to become licensed. “I’m seeing more initials and first-time gun owners than in the last couple of year. There’s a lot of emotion and a lot of fear under a new administration, if that were to take place. I think that’s impacted the numbers,” Carter says. But as the number of sales go up, Simpson says stock is down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“…Because most of the firearm manufacture is done in the New England states, states that have heavy closures, and the ability to obtain firearms like last year has been dramatically reduced,” he says. But while Simpson says they aren’t selling as many guns a day due to the low stock, they’re still flying off the shelves. While the background checks this year are higher than last year, FBI numbers show there is a 16% decrease in checks this year compared to the 2016 presidential election year.  [full article]
