When Biden's lips moved, so did more gun buyers

Not long after Joe Biden made the news today with talk of executive action on gun control, I noted that the parking lot of  a local gun store had filled with cars. Leave it to Joe to freshen up the post-Newtown run on guns.

I made a stop at a big box sporting goods store. Hard to see what was in the pistol cases, customers were shoulder to shoulder.

Off to another gun store tonight. Biden was THE topic of conversation. A least two of the customers there were picking up ARs they'd ordered earlier and had finally come in.

Interesting too, is that revolvers appear in shorter supply than semi-autos. One store manager told me it's people new to guns that are buying revolvers. Newbies want something that's simple and effective.
