San Francisco Gun Show Draws Huge Crowds Fearful Of Looming Gun Control Measures

San Francisco Gun Show Draws Huge Crowds Fearful Of Looming Gun Control Measures.

Daly City, south of San Francisco, saw a record number of gun enthusiast at the Cow Palace gun show this weekend because of concerns over stricter gun laws being put into place making it harder to get them. No one could walk away with a gun, but still an estimated 10,000 people packed the place on Saturday for the annual Crossroads of the West gun show. The increase interest in buying guns comes after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that claimed 26 lives and has increased dramatically around the nation.

California has some of the strictest gun laws in the United states requiring background checks, licensing of gun dealers, 10-day waiting periods, required written tests for all gun owners, recording of all firearm sales, handgun micro-stamping and a limiting each individual to one handgun purchase per month. Since the Sandy Hook shooting, gun shows have been increasingly criticized by locals and some towns are trying to block these gun shows form operating in their town.
