Gun sales in Colorado have soared in the aftermath of the shooting tragedy in Aurora that claimed 12 lives and left 58 wounded.
Background checks carried out on customers as they buy guns were up 41 per cent in the wake of Friday’s shooting at a packed cinema in the Colorado town, the Denver Post reports.
There was also a spike in people seeking training for a concealed carry permit, the report said.
Carrying a handgun or other weapon in public in a concealed manner is legal with a permit in 49 of the 50 US states. Illinois is the only state without such a provision.
Shit, shoot up one cinema and now everyone wants to do it.
