Gun owners rush to buy after President's speech

In the wake of the shooting at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, many gun owners are fearing the President could make it harder to buy or own guns.

- In the wake of the shooting at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, many gun owners are fearing the President could make it harder to buy or own guns.

Guns Etc. is a popular guns and ammo store in Mesa, Arizona. But owner Ron Sega feels there are people, starting with President Obama, who want him out of business.

Does he feel that the President wants to take away people's guns?

"I really do, it might go to that level, today it is style or color, tomorrow it is the registration of all of your guns," said Ron Sega.

Mr. Sega says this fear actually boosts gun sales, especially after mass shootings.

"We sold a $2,000 gun to a guy who has been on the fence, but the President was his push over the edge, and he decided to get it," said Sega.

Sega says AR-15 rifle sales went way up a couple years ago after 20 children, and six adults were killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shootings.

"It was unbelievable, you would sell out in two weeks... they were flying out the door," said Sega.

Richard Elston is a gun owner and loyal Guns Etc. store customer. He thinks there's something to what Mr. Sega says, that gun owners stock up after mass shootings.

"Yes, I think there is, I really do. Because something will happen, and they won't be able to buy it later on, you don't have to register," said Richard Elston.
