Election 2012, popular vote: Run on guns, ammo in Texas town after President Obama's re-election

At the Gun Cleaners gun shop in Waco, Texas ammo and guns have been flying off the shelf over the past two days.

Gun owner Brian Richardson has been anticipating President Obama's re-election for months. "I was a little concerned, because I know that the current president is real big on banning guns."
Business is booming for Gun Cleaners co-owner Rich Chatmas." We've done several thousands of dollars' worth of gun sales in the last couple days, and I know our brothers and sisters in the bigger gun stores, they're doing hundreds of thousands of gun sales."

That's ten times what he usually sells. No small thing for a store of his caliber. We can sell a couple guns in a few days, that's usually pretty average for a small store, like us, but to sell 20 or 30 guns in a few days, that's big time for us."

And while Brian is concerned about his future gun rights, he doesn't think the American people will go down without a fight. "I think the American population in general believes in the right to bear arms."
