After the shooting massacre in Newtown, Connecticut that left 28 dead, including gunman Adam Lanza, several national gun retailers are taking what may be temporary steps to limit gun sales.
Dick's Sporting Goods has removed all guns from its store in Danbury, Connecticut and stopped selling modern sporting rifles at stores nationwide. Wal-mart took down its webpage showing the Bushmaster .223 semi-automatic rifle, the primary gun used by Lanza.
However, concerns about stricter gun laws down the road have sent gun sales soaring.
After the massacre, gun industry faces uncertain future
More than 6 million guns were made in America last year. Gun sales have been climbing in the past five years, and believe it or not, the Newtown tragedy has only accelerated that trend.
CNN David Mattingly reports.
You guys see the Asheville Tea Party is holding a raffle for a .223 AR & two 30 round clips? Announced it Monday.
Class all the way.
