The virus pandemic triggered a socio-economic bomb across major US metro areas resulting in one of the largest panic hoardings of guns and ammo by fearful consumers in quite some time, if not ever.
Gregory Ionadi, 75, the owner of gun shop Smoke N’ Guns, located in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, told PJ Media.
Ionadi said sales at his gun shop erupted during the pandemic. He said he made more gun and ammo sales from March to April than what was done in the last three years, calling the period absolutely “crazy.”
He said once the social unrest spread across the country by late May into early summer, the second round of panic buying occurred.
