Gun Sales and Enrollment in Concealed Carry Courses Sky Rocket After Tragic Mass Shooting


In the wake of the El Paso mass shooting, one of the worst in the nation’s recent collective memory, it would seem as if many in the El Paso community are determined not to be victimized by such evil ever again.

Gun sales and participants in concealed carry classes have skyrocketed, according to Reuters:

Michael McIntyre, general manager of Gun Central, one of the largest gun shops in El Paso and the host of the [concealed carry] class, on Friday said his store tallied double the usual number of sales in the week following the attack, something that did not happen after previous mass shootings in Texas.

Most of the sales were for handguns, which can be strapped to an ankle or shoulder under clothing.

“I have over 50 for this Saturday class and approximately the same amount for the Sunday class, and I normally have approximately seven,” McIntyre said.

Though it’s a positive many El Paso residents are now seeking better knowledge about the protection they are rightfully entitled to, the tragedy of the recent mass shooting still rings loud in their testimony.

“I’m still going to be scared, even carrying a weapon,” Guadalupe Segovia, a mother of two, told Reuters.
