Dick’s Sporting Goods, Walmart and Kroger have announced they will no longer sell guns to anyone under 21 following a nationwide push for stricter gun control after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fl.

This move sparks more than a few questions. What percentage do gun purchases at these national retailers represent in overall gun sales? What other avenues are available for those between 18 and 21 years of age to obtain guns?

Larry speaks to a gun industry analyst on whether the move might have an effect on gun sales.

Guest:

Brian Rafn, director of research at Morgan & Dempsey, a Wall Street investment counsel firm; he’s been following the gun industry for over 30 years
