Connecticut School Shooting Doesn’t Deter Crowd At Gun Show In Montgomery County

A gun show in Montgomery County drew a huge crowd on Sunday, despite calls for stricter gun control after a shooting rampage at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

If gun control advocates were hoping the scale of death at Sandy Hook Elementary School would dampen enthusiasm for the purchase of guns, the line of people waiting to get in to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center was evidence to the contrary.

“It’s more crowded than it has been in the past.”

The crowd was diverse, there were even families with children, but none of the shoppers admitted to even a moment’s pause about guns after Friday’s mass murder in Connecticut. Terrible, they agreed, but unrelated to the shooter’s access to guns.

“There’s knives, hammers, baseball bats, all kinds of things have killed people,” Crazy people get in cars and kill people. You don’t hear anything about restricting that.”

Gun enthusiasts know an event such as the Sandy Hook massacre is likely to bring calls for gun control, and they are armed with what have become familiar defenses.
