It's almost become a cliche: President Obama may be the best gun salesman in America.

As the Obama administration and members of Congress consider new gun control legislation in light of last month's school shooting, gun sellers across the nation are reporting a spike in business.

Ryan Girard, attending a gun show this weekend in southern California, told The Los Angeles Times that "people are just scared of what could or could not happen."

Added Girard: "I'll tell you right now, Obama is the No.1 gun salesman in the nation -- the NRA should give him an award."

The National Rifle Association and other gun rights groups say they will oppose any proposals they believe infringe on their Second Amendment rights.

Obama has asked Vice President Biden to lead an effort to develop a federal response to gun violence after the Dec. 14 shooting that killed 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

Among the possible proposals: Renewal of the assault weapons ban, better background checks on purchasers, and restrictions on the size of ammunition clips.
