Kordell Jackson, owner of two gun shop locations known as Jackson Guns and Ammo for over a decade, has had to shut down both stores. The most recent closing occurred in Henrietta, New York, and Jackson points the finger directly at Governor Cuomo.
Jackson said Cuomo’s unconstitutional SAFE Act hindered his ability to sell rifles, dropping business off by a staggering 94% per month.
Jackson told Time Warner Cable News that his sales plummeted from about $250,000 per month to a scant $15,000 per month.
He said prior to the SAFE Act, his strongest sales involved so-called assault rifles, but once the anti-gun legislation came into play business dropped off markedly.
The SAFE Act wasn’t the only source of the store owner’s woes. New York’s exorbitantly high taxes and restrictive business regulations also made it impossible for Jackson to keep his business thriving.
