Violent crime is encouraging New Orleans citizens to purchase guns at an increasing rate–including a number of first time gun owners.

Long time residents are commenting on how crime is the highest they’ve ever seen and are looking for personal protection.

A string of violent crime in New Orleans has some families searching for their own personal protection. One Marrero-based company is seeing a spike in people wanting firearms.

“It’s the first gun I’ve owned in my life, the first one I’ve ever bought. I’ve shot guns as a child with my dad hunting,” said Jimmy Gueydan, who showed up at Bayou Dragon shooting range in Marrero.
