One-day sales of handguns in Arizona jumped 60 percent on January 10th — the Monday after the Arizona shooting that left six people dead and 14 injured, including Congressman Gabrielle Giffords.

We talk to Steve Zacher, operations manager for Glockmeister Gun Shops in Arizona, about the surge in sales, Arizona gun laws and why his customers are buying the weapons.
