Fort Worth Star-Telegram, By Anna M. Tinsley, November 25
Fort Worth – Michael Hill has been stockpiling guns and ammunition for almost a decade.
But he’s not done — not since President Barack Obama was re-elected this month.
In a continuing trend that alarms gun control proponents, Hill and thousands of other Americans are buying up ammo, handguns and other firearms, citing concerns that Obama might push new regulations in his second term or that U.N. agreements might infringe on the U.S. gun market.
Gun and ammo sales locally are on the rise — about twice as high as they were this time last year — even though sales can’t match the mad rush that cleared out many gun stores after Obama was elected in 2008.
