“People are starting to experience fear and realize that they have to take their safety and protection seriously and that it’s their responsibility. It’s up to them to take care of themselves. They realize police officers are extremely busy and they’re not always available and firearms are just a tool,” said Michael Schwartz, executive director of San Diego County Gun Owners. The group prides itself on educating people on the laws, safety, and use of a firearm.
Schwartz says gun sales spiked more than 80% nationwide last month.
“So much so the retailers, distributors and manufacturers can’t keep up,” Schwartz said.
