PHOENIX (CBS5) -
The owner of America's largest gun show promotion company met in Phoenix Friday on the eve of the massive Crossroads of the West gun show at the state fairgrounds.
Owner Bob Templeton claims he's interested in keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
The annual gun show normally has 10,000 people buying and selling guns, but driven by fear that regulations may soon be tightening, they are expecting 20,000 people this weekend.
"The law-abiding citizens of America and the law-abiding citizens of Arizona are concerned about those incursions, the assault, if you will, of their Second Amendment rights," Templeton said.
But Templeton has no way of knowing if his patrons are abiding the law.
To buy a gun from a private seller, the buyer just needs to show their driver's license and say they are not a felon, although no one checks to confirm they're telling the truth.
"As far as I know, we don't have any local gun violence that has been traceable to the 16 shows we do in Arizona," Templeton said.
There is no study that has even looked at the connection between gun show purchases in Arizona and the crimes they are a part of. The last national study was nearly 20 years ago.
President Barack Obama has proposed a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity clips as well as enforcing mandatory gun show background checks.
Templeton did admit that implementing Obama's proposals would significantly cut into his profits.
Currently a handful of ATF agents are expected to spot felons in the crowd whose faces may look familiar and then step in before they walk out the door with gun.
Templeton said he thinks the current system works fine.
"I don't know if we can do any better job than we are at monitoring that activity right now," Templeton said.
California does have a system in place that requires all private sellers to check the backgrounds of potential buyers.
A network would have to be established in Arizona that private dealers would have access to but Templeton said it would be too costly, and dealers simply wouldn't use it.
