Americans stock up on weapons after California shooting

ATLANTA/SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (Reuters) - At a gun range in Atlanta on Sunday, four days after the deadliest Islamic State-inspired attack on American soil, Brandon Langley practiced firing his AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle.

“If people were armed, it would have changed the outcome totally,” Langley said of Wednesday’s assault by a heavily armed husband and wife that killed 14 people and wounded 21 in San Bernardino, California. “Instead of 14 victims, there would have been zero, except for those two (attackers).”

Many Americans agree and are stocking up on weapons after the country’s worst mass shooting in three years. Gun retailers are reporting surging sales, with customers saying they want to keep handguns and rifles at hand for self-defense in the event of another attack.

“Everyone is reporting up, every store, every salesman, every distributor,” said Ray Peters, manager of Range, Guns & Safes, a company that sells firearms and safes in Atlanta with an indoor firing range. “People are more aware of the need to protect themselves.”

Peters usually carries a pistol with him. But since last week’s shooting, he says he’s added a Ruger semiautomatic rifle.

In a country where more people own more guns than anywhere else in the world, the shooting has reignited a long-running national debate over Americans’ constitutional right to bear arms and whether gun ownership should be curbed or expanded as a way to stop even more bloodshed.

Gun stocks rally after Obama’s prime-time address on terrorism

Shares of the two publicly traded gun makers rallied on Monday, a day after President Barack Obama gave a prime-time address calling for a modest reduction in the availability of firearms.

Both Smith & Wesson SWHC, +6.85%  and Sturm Ruger & Co. RGR, +5.63%  rose over 7% on Monday.

Smith & Wesson has climbed 116% this year and Sturm Ruger has jumped 69%.

Obama on Sunday night said no one on the no-fly list should be able to buy a gun and that it should be harder for people to buy powerful assault weapons like the ones used in the San Bernardino massacre.

Smith & Wesson Soars to Eight-Year High on Gun Control Talk

“The No. 1 driver of firearms sales is fear,” said Brian Ruttenbur, an analyst at BB&T Capital Markets, pointing out that all the Democratic Party presidential candidates have discussed tightening gun control. “Primarily, fear of registration restrictions, banning and things like that.”

Concern for personal safety is also driving demand, Ruttenbur said. Unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore had led people to purchase firearms -- a movement that has been refueled by a fear of domestic terrorist attacks after last week’s shooting that killed 14 and wounded 21 in San Bernardino, California.

“It’s kind of a double whammy,” he said.

Can the USA even afford the interest on the debt? Terrorism aside, anyone can see how a crashing economy would facilitate the need for personal defense. Let us learn from other countries such as Argentina and the Balkans. I'd recommend checking out Ferfal and Selco for a glimpse into what it looks like from within.
