Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Organizers are calling it one of the busiest gun shows ever seen in Las Vegas.
As politicians in Washington try to figure out how to prevent another mass shooting, people from all over the country have come to Las Vegas to stock up, just in case the government tries to ban certain firearms.
Thousands of people lined up outside the Cashman Center in Las Vegas waiting to get in to the Crossroads to the West Gun Show. At times it was reported the wait lasted an hour and a half.
The hot items for sale include semi-automatic weapons and the proper ammunition. Many say this isn't a show where gun fans and enthusiasts gather, but instead one packed by fear.
"The insecurity of people right now. Everybody is insecure about what's going on in the country; what's going on in the world. You want to protect yourself and this is one of the last free countries where you can really do that," says gun enthusiast Roger Ellison.
Organizers say for those who plan on heading out Sunday, the last day of the gun show they should get here early. Especially if you're looking to get ammunition. They say many dealers are already running low and could run out by Sunday.
