(Washington Examiner)Americans are suspending major purchases of houses and cars until after the presidential election, choosing to load up on guns instead, according to a new survey provided to Secrets.

“The top item Americans say they are likely to buy because of the election is a gun,” according to a survey for the supply chain firm Elementum. What’s more, 97 percent of Americans are holding off major purchases “due to the presidential election.”

Among Americans living in the South, the figure is nearly 1 in 5 (19 percent) and among Gen Xers (35-44 year olds) the number is nearly 1 in 4 (23 percent) especially among women (24 percent),” said Elementum.

Secrets recently reported that sales in some gun stores have been doubling every month due to fears a victory by Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton will result in new gun control, including pistol and rifle bans.

Beretta on Tuesday unveiled a pre-election sale, offering 20 percent on magazines. Clinton has sided with those pushing for limits on cartridge magazines. And the sports chain Gander Mountian is running a pre-Election Day sale on semi-automatic weapons including AR-15 rifles.
