Firearm and ammunition sales around the country are sky rocketing as the gun control debate rages on.
Organizers of a gun show at the South Point Casino are expecting record numbers this weekend They say about 190 vendors are there and they expect over 12,000 people before closing time Sunday.
Jim Sobczak came to the show for ammunition, but didn't want to wait in the 3 hour long line.
"Lot of panic buying," he said.
Before leaving Sobczak said he was against any increase in gun control regulation.
"That's not stopping the criminals now. They're still getting guns," he said. "So I don't think regulations are going to do it. They just have to figure out some other way to stop the people who are getting them illegally."
Owners of Rocky Mountain Gun Shows of Nevada say because criminals still get guns, they take precautions to keep non registered firearms out.
"Every gun that comes in from the public is going through Metro," said Rocky Mountain Gun Show Majority Owner Pam Haroni. "I mean, we're not just checking it to clear the ammo out of it."
But rifles and semi-automatic rifles don't need to be registered. They can be sold between private individuals with no background check required. It's known as the gun show loophole, but it can happen anywhere.
"You can do that at a gun show, you can do that at your home, you can do that in a parking lot," said Owner Kourosh Haroni. "I believe it's a safer environment to come and do that transaction in a gun show, in a controlled environment with Metro here."

Now I want an episode ‘Rocky Mountain Gun Show Comes to South Park.’
***It’s known as the gun show loophole, but it can happen anywhere. ****
Private citizen selling to private citizen. I can live with that.
If the owners of the gun show do, indeed, believe in universal background checks and registration, then anyone attending that show is complicit along with all Democrats in their anti 2nd Amendment onslaught. only those who put their own selfish pursuits above the rights and freedoms of others would enable them. Hang together, or hang alone.
It appears the owners vote to put themselves out of business, I bet they support harry and obama. I wonder how many attendees and exhibitors know their position on background checks and registration.
I don’t think this administration’s definition of criminal is the same as the rest of us.
We have a gun show in about three weeks. Are you going? I went to the last one and it was packed. I’m thinking of unloading some of my guns and narrow my focus a bit.
I got all I need, but now I have this want for a few more. Unfortunately money IS an object.
Which show you going to? Springdale or Tulsa?
Ooooh, I was thinking Springdale but didn’t know about the one in Tulsa.
Ohhh I’m watching SKYFALL right now! I want one of those snazzy full auto pistols with the double snail drum!
Haven’t seen it but I want one too.
