    Default Va gun sales up 200% cash is king


    Virginia gun store says firearms, ammunition, and magazines flying off the shelves. Upswing on buying by cash

    With Virginia Democrats taking over all branches of state government, a firearms store owner in the state says sales of guns, magazines, and ammunition are up 200%, and more of his customers are paying in cash.

    “This is the largest Christmas and November, December that we've had, basically, since Trump has come on board.

    The only other person that was a better salesman right now is when we had President Obama,” said Jerry Rapp, owner of SpecDive Tactical, in Alexandria, comparing the administrations of President Trump and his White House predecessor, Barack Obama.

    “Every time [Obama] turned around he was going to ban something or make something illegal.

    But even that isn't even close to the amount of sales we're selling right now of magazines, of guns, of every kind of gun from pistol, rifle, shotguns, to AR platforms" and ammunition, Rapp told the Washington Examiner. "We can't keep it in stock.”

    Since Democrats took the majorities of both chambers in Virginia’s state legislature after big wins in the November elections, gun control proposals that include bans on “assault-style” weapons, restrictions on magazine capacity, universal background checks, and restrictions to one gun a month purchases have all been brought forth.

    Same at the federal level, with House Democrats entering their second year in the majority.

    Virginia freshman Democratic Rep. Jennifer Wexton, who was previously a state senator, has proposed legislation in Congress to use credit card data to track gun purchases.

    The bill faces long odds on Capitol Hill. News about her idea has made it to Virginia firearms customers.

    Rapp said his clients are increasingly concerned about privacy issues. Since the November elections, they've been purchasing with cash rather than credit cards.

    Rapp, whose business includes gun safety training, says that some of the proposed legislation also affects his course instruction.

    "From a gun place, the biggest [proposed legislation] that affects me right now, because we're a training company that sells guns, is if you are a trainer or if you train your son or daughter, that you could become a felon, but as a training place, we do safety," Rapp said.

    "We do training both from a basic pistol, rifle, shotgun to advanced combat shootings and tactical shootings for the military, law enforcement, three-letter agencies."

    If a right to privacy exists for abortion, why not also for gun purchases?

    As usual, liberals want to have it both ways.

    It would appear that the citizen militia is stocking arms, ammo and supplies in preparation for some kind of unconstitutional governmental over reach.

    Maybe he's a high volume dealer? Once you reach a certain sales level, I suspect it becomes very hard to more than double it(or triple it)
