California gun dealers are reporting an increase in sales of the AK-47 assault rifle following Tuesday's killing of five children at a Stockton elementary school and calls by state officials for a ban on the weapons. "Our sales have doubled," said Tom Noroian, manager of Art's Guns in Reseda. "Whatever we can get we put on the shelves. The wholesalers are trying to get all they can because they're sold out too." Noroian said the last five rifles his store had in stock were sold Friday.
