The St. Louis Business Journal reports that gun stores have been busy in the area as residents react to the violent events unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri.

Metro Shooting owner Steve King tells the Business Journal, he has been “unbelievably busy” at his Bridgeton gun store. Claiming business has spiked 50 percent in recent days.

“We’ve sold a variety of handguns, shotguns and AR-15s,” King said. “All of the sales are having to do with home defense.”
