This evening we've communicated with a few industry insiders and they've confirmed the local manifestation of a nationwide trend.
KANSAS CITY GUN SHOPS ENJOY RECORD SALES AMID CORONAVIRUS & RIOTING!!!
However, just like our ongoing love for hottie Jenny P/Penny Mathis, this surge of interest in the 2nd Amendment is more complex than many believe . . .
Again, we talked to a few people on this topic but Sam Dawson of the KICK-ASS Sam Dawson Show shared some worthwhile info.
While Mr. Dawson DOES NOT sell guns, he has a great deal of knowledge about the industry, the global supply chain, the local scene and more . . . Here's what he says . . .
"Gun Shows all but stopped completely due to Covid-19 lockdowns. Millions of dollars in sales just stopped abruptly. The demand did not . . . At the same time Walmart and other box stores quit selling ammo and some guns. What this did was push a very hungry customer base to local gun stores. I went to a local gun store and range this past week. Blue Steel in Raytown Mo. They had a waiting line to get to the counter. The owner told me so many people are buying guns, the manufacturers can't keep up with demand."
We can confirm this in Western JoCo and the Northland where gun sales are brisk and long lines are commonplace.
Like it or not, amid outcry for social justice, Kansas City is in the midst of a gun buying bonanza that is much more practical than so many of the plebs hording toilet paper.
