Christmas Shopping or Stockpiling Weapons?

It was a scene I could only compare to shopping malls at Christmas time in the 1980s.  We drove up North Lamar into a traffic jam. We had to go see what all of the commotion was about.
 There were Sheriffs directing traffic, cars parked up and down both sides of the streets including most of the surrounding lots near the Crocket Center were full and the Center Parking lot was obviously at capacity.

It wasn't black Friday and it certainly isn't the 1980s. 
It was a gun show in Central Texas just after the election.
This photo does not begin to demonstrate how packed it was there.

that's pretty cool,
I never heard of one that big before. Those shows are really neat.

Like they say, everything is bigger in Texas.
