    Guns topping Christmas lists thanks fear over restrictions, Gifting issue.

    At places like Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna, Georgia, business has nearly doubled compared to a year ago at this time, according to manager Eric Wallace. "Ever since the Paris attacks, we've had a lot of customers coming in,'' Wallace told Gabe Gutierrez on TODAY. "Buying first guns, buying guns to protect their homes, their families, and themselves."
    [ ... ]
    "Like any good husband, I asked for the list of Christmas items that you'd like to have and one of the items was a firearm,'' gun owner Louis Cole told Gutierrez. "Above jewelry was a firearm."

    Giving a gun as a gift to another person within your own state is allowed under federal law, and in many states, the recipient is not required to get a background check.

    In Washington that could be a felony.

    Give a man a cop and he is protected for a day; teach a man to use a gun and he protects himself for a lifetime.

    Personally it is easier just to give them the cash then they can buy the firearm they want.

    No guessing is a Glock, Colt, Ruger, S@W or a Springfield right
    so many choice's of caliber, size, mag capacity and color it is just easier to say here's the cash buy a gun with it.

    Was at one show and watch a person try and buy a gun with some silver coins none of the dealers there would take them he finely sold them to a person i knew took a price well below the spot price. then went a brought his firearm with the dollar bills.

    My brother decided he was going to trade some of his Krugerrands for stuff at a gun show no one wanted them he finely sold them to a gold dealer not at the show.

    A lot of people didn't know what they were dealing with so they wouldn't take it.
