Gun Shop Owner Reacts to President's Proposed Ban

Posted: Updated:


Ever since talk about a ban on assault weapons escalated across the country, business has picked up at Lock Stock & Barrel Guns in Wahpeton.


     Owner Glen Manor says things have been so busy with people stocking up that warehouses around the country are backed up: "It usually takes a day and a half to fill an order, and we're sitting over a week."

The feeling of urgency has caused the shelves at his shop to become empty -- but not, Manor reasons, as empty as they would be if the President's ban goes into effect. Some fear that all of this would disappear, and, Manor says, "people see it as infringement of rights."

Assault rifles and high capacity magazines would no longer be for sale, and customers at the gun shop are angry about the proposal. It's one decision which could put many like Manor out of business, and many others out of doing a hobby they have grown to love.

"Just because someone off-their-rocker made a bad decision... Why do we have to pay for someone's mistake?" Manor asks. Manor says the biggest issue that needs to be addressed is mental health care.
