Gun sales at the Firearms, Range, and Clothing Store on South Choctaw Drive in Baton Rouge are up more than 50% compared to this time last year.
Assistant Manager Manuel Luna says sales spiked at the beginning of stay-at-home orders in Louisiana and the social unrest.
With that spike in sales, management says they have also seen a large increase in women customers who are buying guns for personal safety.
The store says they expect their gun sales to continue to be strong, regardless of who wins the presidential election.
