MILWAUKIE, Ore. — After the most recent shooting incidents, Oregon gun shops are reportedly seeing an increase in business.
The rush reportedly started soon after the Clackamas mall shooting, but the massive lines formed just hours after Friday’s school massacre in Connecticut. Shop owners say this weekend the biggest sales day they’ve done in 20 years.
The gun stores in Milwaukie, Oregon are so busy, state background checks that usually take 15 minutes, now have customers waiting for hours. Some customers say they’re buying firearms because they believes the right to buy one may soon be going away.
