Minkler announced Wednesday that approximately 390 firearms, silencers and receivers were seized from Federal Firearms Licensee G2 Sports Products/G2 Firearms Sales on Tuesday.

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Monthly Gun Sales Up 10 Percent Since Last September

September 2019 saw 10 percent more gun sales than September 2018, according to two analyses of background check data released this week. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the gun industry’s trade group, estimated there were over one million gun-sale background checks last month, a 10 percent increase over September 2018. “The September 2019 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 1,011,636 is an…

Dick’s Sporting Goods Distances Itself Further From Firearms

FOOL.COM October 4, 2019 –  It’s not a matter of if, but when Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) completely exits from the hunting and firearms market. The sporting-goods retailer recently agreed to sell eight of 35 Field & Stream stores, part of a chain almost wholly dedicated to the hunting segment, indicating that Dick’s plans an eventual full retreat from the space.

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc.: Grabbing Guns And Ammo Market Share

Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPWH) is an outdoor sporting goods retailer focusing on hunting, shooting, fishing, and camping equipment. What’s interesting here is that SPWH, with its 95 stores primarily located in Western States, has specialized in hunting and shooting segment, representing nearly 50% of sales, while larger retailers like Walmart Stores (WMT) and Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) have pulled back from the segment. We think this dynamic…

NV – RETAILERS – Gun Purchasers Find Nevada Loopholes In California Ammunition Law (VIDEO)

After two mass shootings in 24 hours left 29 people dead this past August there’s been a rush to tighten gun laws nationwide. There’s also been a rush to buy guns and ammunition before more restrictions are imposed. In Nevada, a new background check law goes into effect in January. And in California, a new ammunition law kicked in July 1st. End result: what we saw at…

ID – RETAILERS – Twin Falls man gets OK to sell guns from his home

Planning and Zoning on Tuesday approved a man’s request to sell firearms out of his home. Multiple neighbors spoke in opposition to the proposal. After Planning and Zoning’s unanimous decision, Daniel Corsini will be able to run a Federal Firearms Licensed Transfer and Armorer business from his home on Highland Lane, which is in a residential neighborhood. Firearm sales are federally regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol,…

SD – RETAILERS – Gun and knife show brings unique selection to Rapid City

The Rapid City Firearms Association hosted the annual gun and knife show at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center this weekend. Local and national vendors gathered to to sell guns, parts and ammunition. Gun enthusiasts were able to see a variety of brands and styles of silencers, locks, modifications and more. Funds from the show will go towards funding the Rapid City Rifle Club’s youth shooting program, which…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Gun sales find an easy path online

As the gun debate grinds on, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the loophole exempting private sales from background checks in many states — including Minnesota — merits more serious attention. The so-called “gun show loophole” has actually become a bit of an anachronism. Sales at gun shows still occur and as long as they are private sales — not by a federally licensed firearms dealer — no…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – When Is An Open-Carry ‘Request’ Enforceable: Gun Owners Test Limits Of Retailers’ New Policies

After Walmart announced a host of new policies concerning the store’s relationship with firearms — drastically reducing its share of the ammunition market, officially ending handgun sales altogether and discouraging customers from open-carrying in its stores — the news set off a flurry of similar responses from other retailers, largely owed to pressure applied from the gun control group Moms Demand Action. But the way coverage of…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Gun Sales Soared in August: Has the Recovery Finally Arrived?

As talk of gun control increased among presidential candidates in the wake of several shootings, the number of criminal background checks on potential gun buyers soared in August. The month is one that typically sees gun sales rise as the industry exits the historically slow summer months and heads into the more active fall hunting season. But this year, the number spiked 15% higher, marking the largest…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Gun shops do not have to secure their weapons, but most still spend thousands to do so

Thieves struck another local gun shop, but the break-in did not make many waves. That is likely because only one gun was stolen from Lev’s Pawn Shop on Brice Road last Wednesday morning. And the shop manager says there is a good reason for that. “A lot of people think that, at the pawn shop, everything they see out in the daytime is what we have out…

DC – RETAILERS – Background-check division evolved over decades, product of unintended consequences

In 1986, Congressional approval of the Firearms Owners Protection Act was little noticed outside the world of gun-owners and gun-control advocates. But in retrospect, this innocuous-sounding piece of legislation contained the seeds that sprouted into the expanded-background-check debate now underway yet again on Capitol Hill. “There was no real logic to it,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, one of the Senate’s Democratic leaders in the uphill push to extend the background-check requirement to virtually…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Walmart provides political cover

The National Rifle Association expressed outrage last week at the news that Walmart would stop selling ammunition for handguns and certain types of assault-style rifles. The NRA called the decision “shameful.” That’s the wrong assessment. The powerful gun-rights lobbying group should be thanking the nation’s largest bricks-and-mortar retailer. Walmart’s decision provides cover for political leaders who seem paralyzed in the wake of mass shootings. For those clamoring…

Walmart’s Gun Decision Is Less Political Than It Looks

NY MAG.COM September 6, 2019 –  Much of the coverage of Walmart’s decision to step back from the guns and ammunition business has focused on how the company is (or is not) aligning itself with its customers’ political and social views. I get why people reach for this frame, since it’s the right one for looking at…

NY – RETAILERS – Buffalo Gun Center starts liquidation sale after 71 years in business

It looked like Black Friday outside the Buffalo Gun Center on Harlem Road in Cheektowaga Thursday, as the store opened its doors for a liquidation sale. Loyal customers of the store were sent a letter from the owners of the business saying the store is closing after 71 years in business. “It’s been around a long time. A lot of people love this store,” said Angela Strough,…

AR – RETAILERS – Walmart to stop selling ammunition for handguns, assault-style weapons

Walmart Inc said on Tuesday it would discontinue sales of ammunition for handguns and some assault-style rifles in stores across the United States, in response to recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio. Walmart, the largest U.S. firearms retailer, and other corporations have increasingly joined the debate over guns and gun safety as mass shootings have proliferated and while elected leaders consider options. Walmart, like rivals Kroger-owned…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Walmart’s Small Move on Guns Could Have a Big Impact

Days after a mass shooting at one of Walmart Inc.’s stores in El Paso last month, the nation’s largest retailer offered a cautious and decorous response. CEO Doug McMillon offered prayers for the families of those affected and pledged the company would be “thoughtful” about how it responded. Now, a month later, the CEO’s thoughts have morphed into company policy — and that policy promises to enmesh Walmart ever…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Walmart asked shoppers to stop openly carrying guns in its stores, but won’t necessarily punish those who do

Walmart on Tuesday asked shoppers to stop openly carrying guns in its stores as part of a broader response to deadly shootings at its stores. In a memo to employees, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said the company was “respectfully requesting” that shoppers stop openly carrying firearms into its stores because of a string of recent incidents involving gun-carrying shoppers that caused store evacuations. “There have been multiple incidents since El Paso…
