Gun show draws over 2,000 people near Wausau

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A gun show near Wausau attracted three times as many people as a year ago, as customers buy weapons they fear will be banned soon.

Over 2,000 people showed up for the weekend gun show at the Cedar Creek mall – and sporting rifles that normally sell for $900 were going for over $2,000 each.

Suppliers say they’ve had trouble keeping up with the demand, both before and after Obama proposed a ban on assault rifles and a uniform background check for all gun buyers – including private sales and those at gun shows for the first time
