Gun sales are booming across Texas, and some buyers say their growing belief that President Barack Obama's re-election is inevitable is fueling their race to bear more arms.

Fort Worth gun shop owner DeWayne Irwin tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the rush is similar to one seen shortly after the president's 2008 election.

Book author Alan Korwin tells the Star-Telegram that some are worried that Obama's re-election would embolden a major gun control push. Korwin has written nine books on gun laws and operates a gun laws website.

Korwin says people worry that if Obama wins "he will go after firearms in a way we have never seen before."
