FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - 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.

So brisk have sales been that the rush has created a nationwide shortage of firearms and ammunition, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/y3YDO6) reports. Fort Worth gun shop owner DeWayne Irwin says the rush is similar to one seen shortly after the president's 2008 election.

Alan Korwin, author of nine books on gun laws and operator of a gun laws website, tells the Star-Telegram that some are worried that Obama's re-election would embolden a major gun control push. Irwin says the belief is fueled by perceived disarray in the field of candidates for the Republican presidential nomination.
