Manchester Gun Show Draws A Big Crowd

A line to get inside a Manchester gun show stretched through the lobby and all the way outside the Expo Center in the Radisson Hotel.

WMUR-TV reports that more than 1,000 gun shoppers showed up for Saturday's show. Regular attendees said they had never have seen the show so crowded before. The DiPrite Promotions gun show ends Sunday.

Some of those attending said they wanted to buy the weapons before new gun control regulations can be imposed. The issue has heated up since the Dec. 14 shootings in Newtown, Conn.
