Guns Booming Back Home

Another anti-gun Newspaper from the area writes a story on gun sales, this one from Delaware County where I grew up:

Law-abiding gun owners are making sweet sounds for gun shop owners, with sales skyrocketing along with applications for gun permits in the county over concerns President Barack Obama may set his sights on stiffer gun laws after focusing on the economy.

Apparently applications for LTCs in Delaware COunty are up 21.5% in the first two months of the year.

Of the total applications in 2008, 1,875, or 57 percent, were new or first-time applications, according to Sheriff Joseph F. McGinn.

Read the whole thing.  It’s pretty good coming from the Delco Times.
