OKLAHOMA CITY -- While most of the economy is suffering, gun sales couldn't be better.

One place seeing a big increase in foot traffic are gun shows like one going on at the fairgrounds.

Gun show organizers said attendance for gun shows are, in some cases, three times higher than before the President Barack Obama took office.

It's not just guns people are worried about. Gun stores have even reported the sales of ammunition are way up after concerns Obama will try to increase the tax on ammunition by 500 percent.

The National Rifle Association is making efforts to try and prevent Obama from enacting stricter gun laws.
