Gun stores see increase in sales of semi-automatic rifles after I-1639 passes
LYNNWOOD, Wash. -- Gunshops in the Puget Sound area say they've seen a spike in sales since Election Day when voters passed I-1639, which adds more restrictions when buying a gun. “It’s been insane, absolutely insane,” said Tiffany Teasedale, owner of Lynnwood Gun and Ammunition. Teasedale says semi-automatic style rifles are selling fast since I-1639 passed, which among other things raises the age to purchase those weapons from 18 to 21.
