It’s every gun lovers dream.

Shotguns, handguns and much more will be featured at Crossroads of the West Gun Shows at Cal Expo this weekend.

But as national debate looms on new gun control laws, that could likely draw more than the 15,000 who come each year.

“A number of people are coming out to the gun shows because they are concerned for their second amendment rights. They feel like their rights are being threatened by legislators,” said coordinator Robert Templeton.

The result of those gun debates has led to a shortage of ammo nationwide, but there will be plenty at the Gun Show.

“People who are law abiding citizens who are shooters need ammo so they are coming,” said Templeton.

As Democrats fight for stricter laws like gun background checks, and a total ban on Military assault style weapons,  conservatives argue gun laws are strict enough.

    Something to consider>>>>>>Without getting lost in psycho-analyzing our current president's failures, blaming Bush, Reagan, Repubs, etc., could we objectively look at his performance then compare his traits to other worldwide leaders and previous US presidents? Here's where I'm going with this…Obama is destroying America. All nations worldwide who are lead by Black Leaders are in 3rd-world status, lawless and impoverished. This is the direction Obama has taken us since he took office the first time. We don't know what hidden agendas he may have had before electing him as President. Is it safe to assume that we should never elect another Black President? Another way to ask same question: Due to possible race/muslim/anti-repub agendas, would it be safer to never elect a president who is only in America because his ancestors were slaves? How could someone like that not have a chip on his shoulder, or have something hidden to prove to/get even with Republicans, Whites or anyone he thinks has kept him or his people "down?"
