VERONA -- Gun manufacturers throughout the country are hiring more employees to keep up with high demand.
Bryan Hupman, the manager of Hawk Hill Customs, has struggled to keep ammunition on the shelves and any ammunition the store has sells out quickly. He said Pres. Barack Obama's proposed ban on assault rifles sparked that demand.
The high demand can be good news for business, but bad news for customers.
“It's good for us, and we of course love the business, but at the same time, it's hard for us, too. We can't get ammo and different types in firearms that we want in; we can't get them at this time. It's like a catch-22, good in one way and bad in another,” said Hupman.
He said managers of several other stores in the Valley have noticed a similar trend.
