Gun sales are surging in the state of California, just ahead of a sweeping new gun control law set to take effect Jan. 1.
The new law will kick in at the start of the year and ban "assault-style rifles."
As a result, sales of AR-15s, the most popular rifle in America, have gone way up, Fox News Insider reported.
