Want to triple your money? Buy an assault rifle


Worried that Congress will reimpose a federal ban on the sale of assault weapons, gun enthusiasts across the country are buying them quickly, and some expect their value could triple, according to a Wall Street Journal story.

"A guy could easily make a lot of money," said Jay Chambers, 47, while at a gun store near Atlanta.

Chambers believes that President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress will again ban assault weapons by re-enacting a law that expired in 2004. Chambers has enough guns, ammo magazines and weapons parts to assemble about 30 AK-47s and other semiautomatic rifles that he says could triple in value if outlawed.
