Sales were brisk to say the least. Common statements by vendors were 'Best weekend ever' and "I broke my record". This wasn't all do to hard core 'gun nuts' either. Quite a few new gun owners and 'moderates' made up the queue. Handguns, EBR's, magazines and accessories were the big sellers across the show and I know that the various pro-rights groups signed up dozens of new/renewing members.
While some of it was due to the holiday season, much of it was due to the expectation of more restrictions coming down the pipeline. So far the response by the anti's has mostly been severe hostility online w/ only little physical action while the politicians are dusting off every and any anti-gun bill they can dream of.
This can go either way. The public's attention span is small and there are still a lot more gunnies than there are anti's no matter how loud they get and their clearly shown insanity can work against them.
It's going to be a long season.
