Gun sales skyrocket in North Dakota

Since Friday’s massacre in Newtown Connecticut, gun stores across the nation have been busy with customers.

Today we went to two stores, to find out why so many people are “loading up,” in gun stores.

“In the last three days it’s been busy,” Brandon Charvat said.

Busy is an understatement, for the traffic Mandan Sporting Goods has seen the past few days.

One of the most popular guns being sold, is the AR-15, a weapon believed to be used in the Newtown shooting.

“And the problem is, I just had a vendor come in here and I won’t be able to get them anymore either, it’s going to be tough to get them at this point in time if you don’t already have them on hand,” Charvat said. “Just cause they’re in demand by everybody?” “Absolutely.”
