Liberal policies have people running for the hills to protect themselves with firearms. As the Los Angeles area sees no slow down in robberies, car thefts and home invasions, residents are taking their safety into their own hands.

The owner of Beverly Hills Guns, Russell Stuart, said his sales are booming since the city has experienced a 25 percent rise in violent crime.

“Firearms and public safety is not a rich issue,” he stated. “We’ve seen an uptick in watch robberies, car thefts, follow-home invasions because of the climate of crime in Beverly Hills and throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. People have been drive more to focus on their own personal safety.”

Public safety is not a political issue, or a rich issue… it is everyone's issue

In one morning, Stuart sold about six firearms in just the span of an hour. He said his customers who come in to the store range from film producers, actors and real estate moguls. All of which who once considered themselves anti-gun, have begun to turn to the Second Amendment for protection.

The gun store owner encouraged his customers to visit shooting ranges, so they can better understand how to handle a firearm properly.
