WOW: American’s INCREDIBLE Reaction To Orlando Has Obama FURIOUS…What Did He Expect?
By Kathy Shaidle|June 21, 2016

It’s a trend that has gun control activists fuming, while leaving liberals more confused than usual.

Following the Islamic terror attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, retailers are reporting a spike in gun sales. To leftists, the phenomenon is counterintuitive, but to normal Americans, it makes perfect sense.

Fox Business reports (and helpfully clears up some misinformation that’s been circulating for too long):

Adventure Outdoors Owner Jay Wallace told Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney that sales of AR-15s and other firearms have “really kicked up” since Sunday.

AR-15’s may look like military rifles but they are actually semi-automatic guns, which means they can only fire one round with each pull of the trigger. By contrast, military-style guns have the ability to fire multiple rounds with one pull of the trigger. The ‘AR’ in AR-15 actually stands for ArmaLite rifle, named after the company that developed it and does not stand for “assault rifle,” according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

Wallace claimed that he has sold more than 15 AR-15’s per hour and may know the reasons as to why there is such a rise in sales.

“[People] are afraid that the government is going to take [guns] away and there are folks that are in fear because of the times that we are living in today and those are two big reasons,” he said.

Wallace said some people buy the guns for profit gain as well.

“There are also those that feel that the guns are going to go up in value so they buy them for investment,” he said. “[AR-15s] start out around $500 and go up to $3,000,” he said

Wallace said the last time he had seen such a surge in gun sales was when President Obama was first elected into office.
