Do You Support Stricter Gun Control?
In the aftermath of the Colorado shooting last week that left 12 dead, gun sales surge in the United States, according to the Guardian.
Gun sales are up following the Colorado shooting last Friday.
James Holmes, 24, is accused of firing weapons into the audience of the midnight showing of "The Dark Knight" in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater on July 20. The massacre left 12 dead and 58 injured.
The weapons Holmes allegedly used included a shotgun, semiautomatic riafle and a .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol, according to the New York Times.
Many gun buyers are afraid that politicans will "use the shootings" to enact stricter gun controls, according to the Guardian.
In Colorado, applications for background checks during the three days following the shootings jumped 43 percent over the previous week.
