LAS VEGAS — In the wake of recent gun violence, weapon sales are soaring.

Manufacturers say gun enthusiasts are racing to buy firearms because they are concerned legislation could soon restrict their right to carry.

Right now, thousands of buyers are in Las Vegas for one of the country's largest gun shows.

The Shot Show started Tuesday and is expected to draw 67,000 people. It is only open to buyers, manufacturers and dealers.

Manufacturers say because of the big push for gun control, people aren't just buying to protect themselves.
