    Gun enthusiastics stock up now
    Wednesday, November 05, 2008 | 10:54 PM

    By Erik BarajasHOUSTON (KTRK) -- Some Houstonians are stocking up. They are concerned some gun laws are going to tighten up now that President-elect Obama is on his way to the White House.
    In the last few months, firearms and ammunition have been hard to keep in stock at Jim Pruett's gun store. In the eight years his store has been open, last Saturday he hit an all-time sales record. The colorful tickets reveal 31 gun sales in his modest store.
    "The only other day we can compare it to is 9-11, when sales where astronomical," Pruett said.
    So in a tough economy, where consumers are cutting back, what's driving gun sales? Many fear that President-elect Obama could tighten gun laws.

    My, my, same old God, Guns, and Gays song. Don't you guys ever get tired of it? This old lib has been a gun owner since I was 12, and Eisenhower was President. Obama will be no more interested in taking my guns than Eisenhower was.

    YOu guys are insane! This would be kind of like the democrats saying when Bush got elected lets go get that abortion why we can and you know what eight years later with Repubs controlling congress for six of those years, one in the white house and a majority in the supreme court we still have legal abortions. YOu guys need to get over the gun thing it is protected in the 2nd amendment.

    Even if you stricten gun laws, the criminals will still get their hands on it. Like drugs, you can spend soo much but it still slips through the system.

    Guns and gun control wasn't even an issue in this campaign, was it?

    Was anyone talking about making changes to current gun laws?

    I don't recall it.
