Crowds Drawn to Ontario Gun Show

ONTARIO, Calif. (KTLA) — Business is expected to be brisk at a gun show in Ontario this weekend.

Crossroads of the West Gun Shows is being held on Saturday and Sunday.

Attendance at recent shows has increased, possibly because some people are worried that gun rights will soon be restricted in the wake of the Newtown school shootings.

California has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, including a ban on assault rifles and high capacity magazines.

Also, gun shows in California must follow the same background check procedures as gun stores, including 10-day waiting periods.
