Gun sales surging in the Door Peninsula

Firearm and ammo sales have risen to record levels nationwide, with sales clipping along at a brisk pace in Door and Kewaunee Counties as well. Scott Virlee, the owner of Virlee Gunworks in New Franken, says many customers in recent days are first-time buyers. Those looking for handguns must pass a background check conducted by the state, whereas long guns like rifles involve the federal system. Virlee says the state database is starting to strain due to the number of requests coming in.

 


Virlee says many buyers are arming themselves for self-defense purposes in these uncertain times.
