In response to the Newtown Connecticut School Shooting the discussion of gun control has been re ignited. Sales over this past weekend have skyrocketed in fear that 2013 legislation on gun control may change.

The question to be asked now is, "how aggressive are democrats or republicans push for new fire arm restrictions.
