Gun sales shoot up amid America’s fear of rising crime and terrorism - Times Online

Read Here: Gun sales shoot up amid America’s fear of rising crime and terrorism - Times Online:

"Smith & Wesson, the famed American gunmaker once owned by Tomkins, the
British conglomerate, expects to nearly double its annual sales in the next
three to five years as demand for its firearms soars in the recession. It is not
alone.
All over America demand for firearms and ammunition is rising amid
concerns that rising unemployment, which passed 10 per cent this month, will
lead inexorably to higher rates of crime. Fears of terrorism have also helped to
lift demand, as have concerns among gun owners that the Obama Administration may
introduce restrictions on gun ownership and impose additional taxes."
