Sales of Firearms Up at Ontario Gun Show

ONTARIO, Calif. (KTLA) — Business was brisk at one of the nation’s largest gun shows, held over the weekend at the Ontario Convention Center.

There was a huge turnout at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show and record sales, according to promoters.

Buyers and sellers talked about their fears of possible new federal gun restrictions in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre in Connecticut.

California has some of the nation’s toughest gun laws, with bans on assault weapons and ammunition clips holding more than 10 rounds.

There are also strong background check requirements and a 10-day waiting period for sales.
