With the possibility of Hillary Clinton winning the election this November, people are scared about the future of our country and aren’t going out and making a big purchase like a new house or car.
According to a survey done by Harris Polls, 97 percent of Americans are waiting to make a big purchase as a direct result of the election, and “the top item Americans say they are likely to buy because of the election is a gun.”
The survey found that 16 percent of all American’s plan to purchase a firearm before the election. This is broken down as 1 in 5 people in the south (19 percent), 1 in 4 Gen Xers (23 percent), and 1 in 4 women (23 percent).
Gun sales in stores have been on the rise as we get closer to November 8th, and Companies like Gander Mountain and Beretta are having sales prior to the election in fear of Clinton ramping up gun control, specifically in the form of pistol and rifle bans.
Gander Mountain, The 162-store sporting goods chain, is urging American to “exercise their rights” and is having an election sale on firearms, ammunition, and accessories.
Beretta is also having a pre-election sale, and is offering a 20 percent discount on magazines by using the code GUNVOTE online.
If Hillary does win, gun and ammunition sales are expected to skyrocket just like they did prior to Obama winning the presidency in 2008, and maintaining it in 2012.
