Gun Sales Surge in California Amid Border Crisis Concerns

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Customers flocked to Cory Gautereaux’s Firearms Unlimited California near San Diego, spurred by fears of the migrant crisis. The small gun store, just 25 miles from the border, buzzed with activity last Friday.

“California residents are purchasing guns in droves over concerns about the massive amounts of migrants being released onto local streets,” reported Jennie Taer from the NY Post.

El Cajon, a suburb of 105,000, feels the strain of illegals released into local streets. This influx comes as states like Texas tighten their borders, redirecting migrant flows to California’s less fortified areas.

Keith Carnevale, a longtime resident and customer, explained his decision to arm his family.

“I don’t think it’s just the people that are coming over to try to find work. I think we have a lot of hostile people that are coming over with ill will, ill intent that will potentially cause chaos,” he told the NY Post.

Carnevale and others in El Cajon express growing unease as San Diego becomes a major hub for illegal crossings.

“My wife and I have had home defense guns for many years. Recently, though, with all the stuff that’s happening south of the border and all the people coming over, my concerns have broadened,” Carnevale added.

The local community is caught in a cycle of release and wait, as illegals are often released with a court date due to limited detention capacities.

Border Patrol has released approximately 125,000 migrants onto the streets in the San Diego area since September, noted Taer in her report.

Meanwhile, many migrants claim their intentions are purely work-related, seeking to support families back home. However, this has not alleviated local concerns.

As this border issue unfolds, the debate over safety and security continues to drive gun sales in areas like El Cajon, highlighting the community’s response to this crisis.

    “spurred by fears of the migrant crisis” it’s time american citizens look at this and call it the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN VASION that it is. 99% of those breaking the law by jumping our border are fighting age men and those left are looking to get all the free stuff they can and what they can’t get they’re looking to steal it. along with that there are those who are murdering American’s, raping our women and molesting, raping and killing our kids.

    the thing will most likely see in the future are these fighting age young illegal alien men doing some kind of big attack on us. looking at the communist chinese coming in you can bet they’re up to some of the worst crimes, collecting info to send back home for their communist CCP buddies.

    as we know the communist have the marxist democRATS in their pockets, the whole biden family along with are the fools in washington who are trying to destroy our country that the last thing they want to do is live up to the oath of office they took. just look at what they’ve done to the big name collages those teaching there have done everything to turn the kids in to terrorist backers and none of the real teaching they should have done. but the slime that’s in washington see nothing wrong with them screaming kill all jew and and americans.

    Meanwhile, in Texas, almost everyone owns one gun, or more. Regardless, nearly 5.8 MILLION guns have been sold in Texas since 2020. This past year, the selling rate in Texas was TWICE the rate in CA.

    Texans know how to be ready. Californians have a vague perception of what it means to be ready. They have an equally vague perception of almost anything that matters. Having spent 28 years in the state in the distant past, I know from which I speak.

    Besides a handful of left wing dictators in the WH, no real Americans this flood of people into any country. There are young beggars, who do NOT speak English on most corners in Chicago land area. The fake POTUS (genuime POS) lets the world dump their social problems on the US. Whoever is really running the US, is gleefuly destroying the nation in the name of a senile, greedy, war mongering, child molesting pervert. How can this happen?
