FOX 4 Now reported:
As the debate about gun control heats up, the sale of semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15 are actually increasing.
High-schoolers from Majory Stoneman Douglas and around the country demonstrated, Monday, for stronger gun control laws. “We can prevent some seriously nasty crimes and some seriously indescribable tragedies from occurring, and if somebody doesn’t want to do that at this point, that’s pathetic,” said Emma Gonzales, a Parkland shooting survivor.
Lawmakers are feeling the heat. President Trump told media, Monday, he would consider gun control measures to improve background checks for gun purchases.
Meanwhile, gun stores like Shoot Center in Cape Coral are busy with customers. Owner Aaron Forum said sale of the AR-15, the same weapon used by the Parkland shooter, has increased by as much as 30%. He believes an increase in gun sales is due to a combination of factors:
1. People are becoming more aware of dangers in their community and want to arm themselves.
2. Gun legislation may limit purchase of certain weapons.
