Fears pack Chantilly’s Gun Show, says gun dealers


CHANTILLY, Va. (WUSA9) -- Recent news of President Obama’s executive action plans on gun control had lines stretching down the sidewalk at both entrances at the Nation’s Gun Show in Chantilly, Va. on Saturday.  

A few gun dealers and the gun show’s director told WUSA9 many gun owners are now afraid of proposed executive action, in addition to threats from ISIS and frustration over changes to Virginia’s conceal and carry permits.

One gun dealer said he’s not happy with the president, but at least for now, he is thanking him.

“Obama is the best gun salesman in the world,” said Robert Starer. “People are scared to death that they’re not going to be able to protect themselves.”

Pack Light, Pack Right While Traveling by Air This Fall

Fall is a time when millions of people around the country begin to make their travel plans. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the busiest travel times of the year are just around the corner, which include Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. There are some great reasons why packing light will help make your trip easier and more enjoyable. And the good news is that it’s not difficult to do, either.
