I had the opportunity to go to a gun show today. What would normally be considered as a 15 minute wait soon became a 2 hour wait just to get into the
show. The doors opened at 9am and I got in line no later than 9:20; I had to wait for a good 30 minutes. When I left the show, the line was the
farthest anybody has ever seen.
All of the above being said, EVERYONE is preparing for what might come to be. All of the prices were absolutely insane. Under normal conditions, AR's
would sell between $900 to $1200 depending on which model I was looking at; however, in the present, most of the AR's were being sold averaged around
$2400. Most of the vendors didn't put price tags on the AR's because they were afraid to post a price for all to see.
The magazines that were posted earlier in this topic were being sold for $75 each minimum at the show. I looked at every single booth looking for one
with a reasonable price since I'd like to buy a few for my 10/22. Unfortunately for me, 9/10 of those magazines were sold out in the first few hours
of the weekend long show.
The place was so crowded that an announcement came over the loud speaker at the fairgrounds telling people if they were to leave at that moment due to
overcrowding, that the fairgrounds could either give the people their money back or allowed them to be admitted entrance to the show the following
In summary, citizens are either increasing or modifying their arsenal and are not taking any chances whatsoever. If the government would try to disarm
the population in any way shape or form, there would be extreme hostility.
By the way, I had only seen 3 on-duty cops during the entire show. At that moment, it was the safest place in America
