Penna. gun sales brisk following Connecticut school shootings
Quote:Pennsylvanians are lining up to buy firearms in the aftermath of the Connecticut elementary school massacre, but dealers say gun owners were already anxious over the potential for a gun-control crackdown.


In Greene County in western Pennsylvania, officials processed 40 applications by mid-afternoon Wednesday, compared with a record of 110 in one month.

My wife and I are going out later today to look for her own carry handgun. Up until now, she has been carrying one of mine that was transferred to her when we were dating. The way things are going was the final push that made her decide to buy, and let the finances worry about themselves. Big Grin

Also, my cousin called me and will be applying for his LTCF and wants me to help him buy a rifle next week. Big Grin

Good week for me, and for many FFLs, I am sure. I just hope anything coming down the pipe isn't retro-active.
The few trips I made to the local shop, really shocked me.

The other night I saw forms listed down the display case, must have been 15-20 of them. From the few minutes I shared with my usual guy there while he had a smoke break, they had about six or seven people waiting for them to open. He didn't even get a lunch break.

He was telling me that even pistols were flying off the shelf, and he had already sold two black powder reviolvers.

I have never before seen them that busy.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
I'm headed to Allentown this weekend...

For a reason. Ninja
