This weekend, the Dakota Territory Gun Collectors Association was packed with people looking to buy firearms and ammunition in Sioux Falls.
There was barely any breaking room at the Ramkota Inn Convention Center Saturday afternoon as thousands of people showed up to shop at Dakota Territory's annual Gun Show.
"South Dakota and North Dakota are kind of unique in being compared to some states in being strongly pro-second amendment," Dakota Territory President Bruce Foster said.
The Dakota Territory President says at events like these there isn't much concern about proposed Federal gun bans.
"The federal legislation hasn't come out in any final or even any amended form so I think people here are sitting back to see what happens," Foster said.
The proposed bans are stirring up interest in firearms, according to gun salesman LeRoy Ciscon.
The Vietnam Veteran travels around selling guns at gun shows. He says at he has seen about five times the normal attendance. Ciscon believes it's because of the proposed restrictions.
"Because they are talking about putting restrictions on rifles, the assault rifles are getting all the attention and if you look at this show they are very few assault rifles here," Ciscon said.
Ciscon says he doesn't believe these extra large crowds will last.
"Probably the regulations won't get very far, there will be a few minor changes but not much. In a year from now everything will get right back to normal," Ciscon said.
The gun show will be opened again on Sunday.
