Gun Stores Selling Out After Washington State OKs ‘Assault Weapon’ Ban

  • Customers stripped entire sections of wall at Surplus Ammo & Arms bare this week, flocking to the Tacoma gun store for rifles that are about to become illegal in the state of Washington.
  • “We are running out of almost everything,” store manager Bruce Smith said.
  • “They’re going to ban all AR-style guns and anything that attaches to those guns,” Smith said. He estimated sales have doubled in the past month, with customers primarily focusing on rifles like the AR-15, kits and replacement parts. “People are focusing on what they won’t be able to get.”
