Gun sales have soared across the nation since Friday's school shooting in Connecticut, and Dothan stores are seeing an increase in sales also.
Gun owner Kelley Toben said he is worried that his second amendment rights are in jeopardy. "Right now with the Connecticut shooting they are trying to place bans on AR-15 guns and ammunition. I'd like to get enough ammunition so that if they were to place a ban on it I would feel like I'd have enough for the future," said Toben.
Gun owners like Toben are stocking up on all firearms with the top seller being assault rifles.Store managers say this added traffic is just the beginning because the demand for guns is only going to rise.
"The availability is definitely going to get worse before it gets better," said Outpost owner David Bryant. . "People are scared right now and are buying up weapons and ammunition. As many people as there are buying weapons, and as little supply as there is, the prices will continue to rise."
