Lubbock shoppers rush to annual gun show

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Concerns about new gun laws drew a large crowd to the Lubbock Civic Center on Saturday for the Lubbock Gun and Blade show, hosted by the Silver Spur Trade Show of Texas.

Over 300 vendors were on hand to show off guns and knives of all kinds.

Organizers described it as a crazy day as visitors rushed to make purchases before any new regulations can become law.

Show organizer Kim Sansom said, "They're talking about the assault weapon ban and high cap mags and talking about the gun show loophole, which is private individuals trading and selling between themselves."

Sunday is the last day to experience the show.

Doors open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m.

Tickets cost $5 dollars for adults. Children under 12 get in free.
