Not just Texas seeing firearms-buying surge (video).

Gun sales jumped well over 30-percent last month in Texas, compared to February 2011, but the Lone Star State isn’t the only place where gun sales are booming. There have also been substantial jumps in Arkansas and Louisiana, as well.

In Shreveport, Max’s Pawn Shop Store Manager Curt Smith said he too is seeing a surge in gun buying. “Our handguns have really just gone crazy. We can’t keep handguns.”

At that store alone, on Linwood Avenue in south Shreveport, Smith estimates that firearm sales are up 20-percent this year. But while he’s heard some grumbling about a second Obama term as a motive to buy, the opportunity to do so is only made possible right now because of tax return checks beginning to arrive locally.
