Gun Sales Increase In the Midst of Missing Women Cases

At least one business is reporting a spike in gun sales - and the business says it's seeing a lot more women in its store.
In the midst of the search for missing Boonville woman Kristy Kelley, a local businessman is reporting a spike in gun sales.
Buck's and Jake's manager, Larry Fichter, says he's seen a major increase in women buying guns - especially pistols.
He says pepper spray is also flying off of the shelves. And for the first time ever, the store is entirely out of stun guns.

"I think they're concerned. They just want to make sure they've got protection and ya' know here at Bucks and Jake's we feel whether this was going on or not you should always have something available," says Fichter.

Fichter says stun guns will be back on the shelves Wednesday.
