Florida gun sales soar over gun control fears
Central Florida dealers sell out assault weapons
Assault weapons have sold out in many Central Florida gun shops following President Barack Obama's promise to make gun control a "central issue" in the wake of the Newtown elementary school massacre.
For the second time in four years, gun dealers reported daily sales matching as much a month's worth of business.
"It started as soon as the president spoke on Tuesday," said Eileen Reig, who has sold guns and taught marksmanship for 45 years at Reig's Gun Shop and Range in Orlando. "Washington has started a panic…Everybody just needs to take a deep breath and calm down and see what happens."
