Gun Sales Increase in Colorado

Sebastian at Shall Not Be Questioned notes this is "probably not the reaction that our opponents wanted to see." The Denver Post reported:
Background checks for people wanting to buy guns in Colorado jumped more than 41 percent after Friday morning's shooting at an Aurora movie theater, and firearms instructors say they're also seeing increased interest in the training required for a concealed-carry permit.
Sebastian suggests this may be driven by a combination of things, including the fear more gun control could be a response to the shootings or a basic desire for self preservation (i.e. if some wacko is going to be running around committing mayhem, I want something to protect my self).
