    I don't mean to be morbid. Moreover, I don't profit from ocassional jumps in traffic to my site.

    But I was absolutely amazed to find that traffic to my gun-related site went from 5500 to 6000 a day to 6200 visitors on Monday, and then to slightly over 8,000 visitors yesterday. That's a record for one day.

    I don't sell guns on my site. I just post manufacturers' photos and descriptions. And I sell advertising to gun stores.

    Four of the five store owners I talked to today said business was booming. Most owners recently have told me the same thing, and attributed the increased sales to fear of HR 1022.

    I guess the Virginia Tech shootings have made the idea of gun bans even more plausible to the typical gun owners.
