Within just the first six months of 2020, approximately 19 million firearms have been sold. These are unprecedented numbers, and are a reflection of the concern that American citizens have for their safety and well-being. Amid the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic, further destabilization has been introduced in the form of riots, looting and other forms of lawless behavior around the country. As if it wasn’t enough that normal life as we know it has been turned upside down by health concerns related to COVID-19, we must now also look over our shoulders to ensure we do not become victims of violent criminals who have taken to disrupting peace and security with seeming impunity.
Ammunition shelves are also empty at many retailers. People who own or have recently purchased firearms are finding it difficult to acquire certain common types of ammunition. Much like the disappearance of toilet paper and other staples early in the pandemic, panic buying has now affected these critical supplies. While you can still find ammo if you are diligent in your timing and willing to literally go the extra mile in this Easter egg hunt, it’s not like it used to be. A mere few months ago you could stop into any sporting goods store and buy as much ammunition as your checkbook would allow. Times are definitely changing, and not necessarily for the better.
Guns and Ammo at Metro Pawn & Gun
Firearms have long been a cornerstone of our business. We purchase or offer cash loans for guns and most merchandise of value, and this helps many people who find themselves in acutely difficult financial situations resulting from the economic impact of pandemic-related lockdowns, unemployment, and other variables. For those looking to buy, we offer a fantastic inventory of items to choose from. From handguns to rifles and shotguns, we have what you need for personal security, hunting or shooting sports. We also stock ammunition, although supply and demand changes daily and is reflected in what we may have available at a given time.
This is as good a time as any, if fact probably better, to exercise your 2nd Amendment right to own firearms. Our experienced staff can guide you in selecting the weapon which best fits your needs, with great pricing and many choices available!
