Crisis in Missouri Causes Jolt in Gun Sales

"Gun Sales have skyrocketed in Ferguson, MO as the current situation grows worse and worse everyday. The situation was all started when a young boy was shot by a policeman. The story is different on both sides so it is not yet clear about what truly transpired, but in response to that there have been many cases of protesting and looting taking place in the area. Gun Sales in Ferguson have increased in the wake of the police shooting. Based off all of these nights of violence many residents have started to go to gun shops in order to protect themselves and their families. Many gun shop owners in the area are reporting increased levels in their gun sales. Steven King, owner of Metro Shooting said "They're just afraid of whats going on and they're coming in to purchase either additional firearms or their first firearm."" However this increase in gun sales is only in his store close by Ferguson, he reports that sales at his other store have stayed at its normal level. Another store that has seen a drastic increase in gun sales is Mid-America Arms. Al Rothweiler, the owner of the store, reported that his store has seen its sales go up nearly 50%. He also said that more women than normal were purchasing firearms at his store. Many people who would not be seen as customers at these stores have been coming out in bunches to buy these guns. We can only hope that the situation that is currently going on will begin to diffuse itself. Hopefully these new gun owners also do the best they can to learn how to properly use the guns and that they keep them in safe places so that more accidents do not happen because of it. If you wish to read more about the increase in gun sales in Ferguson, MO or just want to hear more about the situation as a whole than you can find that here."

ATF Looks to Impose a New Rule to Cut Down Gun Thefts

"The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is proposing a new rule that would place more regulatory reporting requirements on gun dealers. The rule will require firearm dealers, manufacturers and importers to report any guns that were lost in transit within two days. The goal of this newly proposed rule is to reduce the amount of gun thefts that occur during transit.  Gun thefts during transit have reportedly been increasing recently. There are already federal regulations enacted that require firearm dealers to report guns lost in their inventories within two days. While that helps decrease gun thefts in store, the ATF hopes this new rule will help to decrease gun thefts that occur during shipping. The ATF reported that within the last 15 years, gun thefts that occur during transit have increased about 20 percent. They also concluded that there were about 1,500 cases where guns went missing and were never reported. The new rule states that The omissions in the regulations regarding reporting the theft or loss of a firearm in transit adversely affect ATFs local law enforcements investigative and tracing capabilities. However, the bill is facing some opposition. One of the main challengers of the rule is Larry Keane, the senior vice president for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Mr Keane said Manufactures work very closely with ATF when situations arise to help in the investigation  which usually ends up to be someone in the common carrier  but these cases are exceedingly rare. Keane believing that the industry is already doing well the way it is, arguing that only 1,500 of 12 million guns were stolen out of transit. It is important to continue to always try and lower the amount of gun thefts that occur. Whether or not the thefts occur during shipping, it is just important that firearms are not being obtained illegally. If you wish to hear more about how the ATF looks to curb gun thefts than you will be able to find that here."

The Emergence of the Smart Gun Has Sparked Up Debate

"The Smart Gun has recently been the subject of conversation for both sides of the aisle and as of right now it seems to be facing opposition from both sides. One side of the aisle fears that this weapon will encourage more people to buy guns, while the other side fears that the Smart Gun technology will be mandatory for all guns. The technology behind the gun is that the weapon will not fire unless its user is wearing a watch that is connected with it. The gun is also battery operated, so that in itself, has started up debates. The Smart Gun has been a topic for heated debate recently. As a result of this, many shops that attempted to sell the Smart Gun have faced multiple threats from people who are against the gun. One such man was Andy Raymond, who owns a store in  Maryland. Right after announcing that he would sell it things went out of control and he said ""People just started calling. All three of our lines were just boom, boom, boom. A hundred emails. I mean, just like that."" The threats that he received ranged from threats of burning the store down all the way to death threats. Eventually, Raymond decided not to sell the guns after seeing all of the backlash that was directed at him. As of right now there are not many places that sell these guns but in time these guns will reach the open market. When speaking about the idea of the weapon going away Andy Raymond said ""The technology isn't going away. If people want to defeat it they need to defeat it in the free market. Then don't buy it."" The emergence of technology is always interesting to see because then we can see that there is growth in the markets. New technology should always be supported but we must make sure that it can be properly utilized. If you wish to hear more about the Smart Gun and whether or not you will see it in gun stores soon, then you can find that here.  "
