Local gun store owners see more customers
Local gun store owners said the president’s sweeping gun-control measures sent customers flooding into their stores, where ammunition continue to be in short supply.
“[My customers are] very upset,” said Dale Rueff, owner of Dale’s Guns in Marengo. “... I’m getting a lot of phone calls looking for items that are not even available.”
An ammunition shortage has plagued local gun store owners in recent months, Rueff said, especially since the shooting in Newtown, Conn. The elementary school shooting was the catalyst for President Barack Obama’s proposals for Congress and executive orders signed Wednesday.
