The reason? Some people think the president may crack down on gun control laws during his second term.
Amarillo gun shops say they've seen a huge spike in business.
"I'm not going give mine up, I'll melt them down first. I don't think one person has the right to take away your Second Amendment right," Gun Owner, Charles Burgett said.
"I mean if you look at the legalities of it. People are making their own guns and there's no licensing behind making those guns," Amarillo Resident, Krystal O'Mara said. "But at the same time, is our government serving its people."
After President Obama's re-election gun sales went up around the county.
Charlie Stokes, owner of Panhandle Gunslingers, says people are up in arms about the potential for President Obama to take away their guns.
"I think a lot of people are disapointed about the election, especially in this part of the country. I think the sales are probably a little bit fear driven. That there may be some change," Stokes said.
They've been so busy in fact, that stokes says they did about a week of business in just three days.
She says the main argument with gun control is that an AR-15 is an assault rifle, and they aren't regulated enough.
"It's not an assault rifle, it's just a gun. And I promise you none of the guns on my shelf have ever committed an assault," Stokes said.But the reality is, the president doesn't have the power to completely control guns.
"I don't know how you would repeal the Second Amendment. That doesn't sound possible to me," Amarillo Resident, Andrew Boyd said.
In order to change the constitution, two thirds majority vote would be needed in both the House and the Senate, and then it needs to be ratified by 38 of the 50 states.
That's more than three fourths of the country that would need to jump on board before anything could change.
Since President Obama took office, the only gun laws passed have been to expand gun usage.
You can now carry a gun in parks and in Washington D.C.
But after the mass shootings in Colorado this summer, he did want to lead a national discussion on gun control.
