Aiming to Buy: As talk of gun control increases, so do sales

March 3, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Ready, aim, buy.

Due to the fear of guns being banned that has been stirred recently, many people are purchasing guns and ammunition at a rapid rate at area gun stores, according to those shop owners.

The owners have said that many of their customers are fearful of potential gun control legislation and a possible ban on both guns and ammunition.

Todd Peace, co-owner of Peace's Feed, Guns & Ammo at 300 East Main St. in Big Run, said much of his stock of handgun ammo, .223-calibur ammo and AK rifle rounds is selling out faster than he can order more in.
