CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -
Many people marked the inauguration by exercising their Second Amendment rights. Gun sales continued to spike in Arizona.
Guns Etc. is one of the only shops around town that still has ammunition. Employees told CBS 5 News it's selling so fast they've put a limit on how much a person can buy in one day.
The Chandler gun shop never saw a lull in business Monday. Vic Pickett said it's been this way for the past couple months.
"Business has pretty much been off the scale," said Pickett.
Shelves that are normally fully stocked with guns have big gaps. It's the same story with ammo.
"I think a lot of people that are coming in that commonly aren't our customers, they're here to buy guns they feel the government might restrict," said Pickett.
But everyone isn't looking to buy. Dr. Everett Knutson told CBS 5 News this is selling time.
Knutson bought an AR-15 about 10 years ago and only shot it once. Since then, it's doubled in value.
"It's been sitting in my gun safe waiting for the day it was worth more money," said Knutson.
Some gun shop employees said the possibility of stricter gun laws only played a part in the surge in sales.
"There was already a strain on the industry from Obama being re-elected and then after what I call black Friday, the massacre, it was just kind of like meltdown," said Pickett.
Pickett said because of demand people are paying a lot more to pack heat. The cost of ammo has gone up 30 percent and online guns are selling for hundreds more than they were just a few months ago.
