ALBANY, GA (WALB) -      South Georgia gun dealers say they have seen dramatic sales increases since the election last week.

Owners of the Dawson Road Jewelry and Pawn store say they have seen increased sales of all kinds of guns, but especially pistols and what people would term assault weapons.

They say that is not unusual, gun sales usually pick up after a Presidential election.

Dawson Road Jewelry and Pawn Manager Jason Sheffield said "I guess people just getting feeling uneasy. Election year. Just different laws they are thinking about passing. Restrictive laws on guns, in particular assault weapons."

Sheffield says their store has also seen a big increase in ammo sales as well in the last week.
