California is seeing a big surge in gun sales as the Golden State gets ready to enact sweeping gun control measures.

Some Californians are rushing to get their hands on the AR-15, which is America's most popular rifle and a longtime target of gun control proponents.

today is the last day to make a purchase, since the state has a 10-day waiting period on all purchases.
