Southern CA gun show draws thousands of people

ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) -- A weekend gun show that drew thousands of people to a Southern California convention center has wrapped up.

The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin (http://bit.ly/TFaDGc) says attendance at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show on Sunday was smaller than the previous day, which attracted an estimated 6,000 people.

The newspaper reports customers lined as early as 5 a.m. on Saturday, and that fire officials had to slow access to the Ontario Convention Center during the show's opening hours to keep the space from exceeding capacity.

Some came to sell and trade their firearms, while others stocked up on ammunition.

The possibility of tighter gun control in the aftermath of the Connecticut school killings has pumped up attendance at gun shows in several states.
