Gun sales in the Gunshine State are up sharply for the first quarter of 2013, according to data from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
FDLE tracks the number of requests for background checks its Firearm Purchase Program receives from dealers.
The data does not include private sales, which do not require a background check.
The data shows requests for the checks are up by more than 100,000 for the first three months of 2013.
The state saw a modest increase in firearms sales in 2008, followed by a more significant jump after the 2012 elections.
Many local gun dealers are still struggling to stock their shelves. Arms and ammunition have become scarce.
Most popular military-style firearms are selling at inflated prices, as are their accessories.
