Gun Sales Skyrocket in San Bernardino after Terror Attack

Turner’s Outdoorsman in San Bernardino was the place to be this weekend following a terror attack at the Inland Regional Center that killed 14 people and injured even more.

ABC News reported that “the line was out the door” at the hunting and sporting goods store.

Some were buying their first gun, like Ben Reynolds of Runyon Springs, California, who wisely observed, “It hit a little close to home. It can happen anywhere, and this just shows it.” Reynolds said he would consider buying an assault rifle.

Others were purchasing supplies for their gun collection. “Buster Mitchell, who lives 12 miles away from the Inland Regional Center … owns seven guns and said he was at the gun shop for supplies.”

“I didn’t think there would be a line,” he said, noting the store’s “Christmas sale.”

“Christmas is really big for this place, they do a lot of business,” he said.

Turner’s did not respond to ABC News for comment, but “some gun shop owners have reported a massive spike in sales.”
