Gun shop owners continue to experience a surge in business, and they cite a potential second term for president Obama as the driving force.
Cris Parsons, owner of Houston Armory tells Fox 26 that he has a huge backlog of orders and cannot get parts into stock fast enough to keep up with demand.
â€œEven the smallest parts are six to eight months back order. Even the little things, so itâ€™s getting very difficult to get a whole gun assembled and sell a complete gun because of a lack of parts,â€ Parsons said.
Parson says his customers are telling him that it is a fear of Obama winning re-election that is spurring them to buy increased stocks of ammo and weapons.
â€œIf he wins the election, heâ€™s got nothing to lose, so a lot of people think heâ€™s going to go after guns if he gets a second term,â€ Parsons said.
