In addition, the gun business was doing well as the rich and famous went to Beverly Hills’ sole gun store, Beverly Hills Guns, seeking protection from the dangers of day-to-day life in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Magazine reported that “since opening in July 2020, the store has seen upscale residents from Santa Monica to the Hollywood Hills increasingly in a panic following several high-profile smash-and-grab and violent home invasion robberies.”
