Gun enthusiasts thronged to shows around the country on Saturday to buy assault weapons they fear will soon be outlawed after a massacre of school children in Connecticut prompted calls for tighter controls on firearms.
Reuters reporters went to gun shows in Pennsylvania, Missouri and Texas, and found long lines to get in the door, crowds around the dealer booths, a rush to buy assault weapons even at higher prices and some dealers selling out.

Well imagine that. Threaten supply and demand goes UP.
Sounds like capitalism to me.
If you're left with a pea shooter and your foe has a semi...just put your hands in the air and prepare to die.
I suppose more black markets means more jobs.......BUT THEY'RE ALL CRIMINALS!!!
The libs got confused when they heard about black rifles.
So they called them Asphalt weapons.
I think the term “assault weapons” to signify certain kinds of guns is a bit silly. A lot of things are “assault weapons”-—a baseball bat, a car, a tire iron, etc.
A gun has only one job and that is to shoot when it’s trigger is pulled.
The person pulling the trigger may at times be the one doing the “assaulting” but that doesn’t make the gun an “assault weapon”.
Indeed. We fight for the rights of generations yet unborn.
And when it does come down to time for fighting, we’ll be needing our bolties anyway.
Where were those $400 AR-15s a year ago that rooters speaks of?
“Gun enthusiasts pack shows to buy assault weapons”
The above propaganda speak many have been brainwashed through the tactic of “repitition speak.”
Any firearm sold in the United States is a defense, hunting, or sport firearm.
Gun enthusiasts pack shows to buy Maximum Defense Firearms.
Agreed. They want us to agree to ban "assault weapons", and then they get to define "assault weapon". And they're outraged that we could possibly find anything wrong with that arrangement.
If someone were to beat a LIB asshat with Das Kapital would that then be an assault weapon?
Where the h*ll are the Reuters reporters about Fast and Furious?
30,000 men, women and children have been killed by high powered weapons, supplied by US LAW ENFORCEMENT to TERRORISTS and drug lords in Mexico.
I guess I could theoretically strangle somebody with my underwear, so that is an "assault weapon" as well.
A few guys were walking out with their new $1200 M&P-15s but if this show is any indicator, I think the sellers may have found what the market will bear. A lot of people like me were waling out empty handed.
Hey libtards. Don’t know if you have considered one of the unintended consequences of banning semi autos, But I don’t want to hear your whiny complaints when the criminal element switches over to FULL automatic. After all, If they are both illegal, why dick around with the semi autos?
How come nobody told me, they have assault weapons at gun shows now?
