"It started on Monday with the AR-15s going out the door," she said. "Once those were gone they were buying anything with a high capacity magazine."
The rush to buy guns comes in the wake of last Friday's massacre in Newtown, CT. Twenty year old Adam Lanza shot twenty children between the ages of six and seven, and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He killed them all with a semi-automatic rifle made by Bushmaster called the AR-15, before killing himself with a handgun.
The shootings triggered both a wave of anti-gun talk and a wave of buying by gun owners and enthusiasts.
