Missouri reports gun sales hike after Ferguson

Racially-charged protests in Ferguson are fueling an exponential increase in gun sales among mainly white customers at one of the premier shooting ranges in the country a 20-minute drive away.

The Ultimate Defense Firing Range and Training Center in St Peters, outside St Louis, Missouri typically sells three to five guns a day, but in recent weeks the number has risen to 30. “We’ve seen a tremendous run on hand guns, specifically, because people have an element of fear with what’s going on in Ferguson,” said owner and active duty police officer Paul Bastean.
