Sacramento County Annual Gun Sales Increase 406 Percent
Some California residents continue to buy firearms at an unprecedented rate.
Data recently released by the California Department of Justice indicate that Sacramento County residents continue to buy firearms at an unprecedented rate.
No particular reason was given for the dramatic increase in gun sales, but in general, it is believed that people feel less safe. The increase in gun sales is also interesting because it correlates in time to the election of Barack Obama to the presidency. Many people believed at that time, and still do, that access to guns would be restricted, so they bought thinking that they might not be able to in the future.
