MONROE - Almost two weeks after President Barack Obama tearfully announced an executive action to increase background checks on gun sales, business is booming for local gun merchants. Both Martin's Sport Shop and CT's Firearms & Archery have reported a substantial uptick in gun sales since the president's announcement, even though the action in no way impedes the sale of guns from licensed vendors. "It's targeted more towards gun shows than to us," said Connor Thompson, owner of CT's Firearms & Archery.
