(San Francisco, CA) — The sales of guns in California is surging over pandemic-related fears. According to a new report by U.C. Davis School of Medicine, around 110-thousand state residents say they recently bought guns to protect themselves against violence. Half of those surveyed said they are new gun owners. The pandemic has created conditions where people who are out of work, isolated, or feeling hopeless could act out in violent ways. Many gun shop owners say the demand for weapons is so high in the state that some are running out of inventory and ammunition.
