Gun Shows Across the Nation Draw Record Crowds, Even After Toomey-Manchin Bill Fails

Gun shows across the nation have experienced record turnout, even as the federal gun control push has hit a major roadblock.

April gun shows – both before and after the Senate killed the Toomey-Manchin bill – have seen record crowds, as many fear the debate over the Second Amendment is not yet over.

New York reports that thousands of gun owners attended the annual show at the New York State Fairgrounds:

“Gun owners and collectors by the thousands came to the New York State Fairgrounds today to scout for affordable ammunition and to increase their weapon collections as the debate about stricter weapons laws continues across the country.”

According to reports, many enthusiasts arrived at 9:00am when the doors opened but waited in line nearly two hours just to get through the doors.

“Hundreds more waited in chilly winds and, it being April in Central New York, sleet and random flurries.”
