"A gun fair held in Tucson, Ariz., one week after the shootings in which Gabrielle Giffords was wounded and six locals killed attracted 50 per cent more visitors than normal, while sales of the ammunition allegedly used in the attack increased tenfold. ... Bob Templeton, whose shows cater for 600,000 gun owners across the west of the U.S. each year, added: 'Any time gun owners in America feel their rights to use firearms lawfully may be challenged, they turn out in numbers.'"
