Article Photos: Fearful of ban, frenzied buyers swarm gun stores 2/2

FILE - In this Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012 file photo, Clerk Lance McCoy, right, shows a variety of weapons including an AR-15 style semi-automatic at Kizer Guns and Ammo near Nacogdoches, Texas. Demand for firearms, ammunition and bulletproof gear has jumped since the Dec. 14 school shooting in Newtown, Conn., that killed 20 children and six adults. Politicians, including President Barack Obama, have called for tighter gun control since then. That has sent Americans into a panic, buying as many guns and as much ammunition as they can get their hands on before any type of ban is set. (AP Photo/The Daily Sentinel, Andrew D.
