Racially-charged protests in Ferguson are fueling an exponential increase in gun sales among mainly white customers at one of the premier shooting ranges in the country a 20-minute drive away. "We've seen a tremendous run on hand guns, specifically, because people have an element of fear with what's going on in Ferguson," said owner and active duty police officer Paul Bastean. Rage has simmered in the mainly black suburb of Ferguson after a white police officer shot dead an unarmed black teenager in August. Uproar over Michael Brown's death and a St Louis grand jury's decision Monday not to indict officer Darren Wilson have inflamed racial tensions.
