Six are dead, six still in the hospital and Americans are struggling to figure out what it all means, but there is another alarming result of the Tucson shooting's aftermath: the surge in sales of Glock pistols, the gun used by Jared Lee Loughner to carry out his crime.
Bloomberg reports that Arizonans are rushing to pick up the $499 semi-automatic. According to one store owner, "We're at double our volume over what we usually do." This was two days after the shooting.
Another stat: one-day Arizona Glock sales jumped 60 percent Jan. 10 compared with the corresponding Monday last year. And it's not isolated to the Grand Canyon state, either.
