CHRISTMAS was good for gun owners in the US even after the Newtown school massacre with gun owners posting photos of themselves on social media with their new "toys".                                                                                                                        The trend of showing off guns on social media was noticed by The Verge and reported by The Atlantic Wire.
Despite widespread horror after the massacre of schoolchildren in Connecticutand calls for stricter gun  laws, Christmas Day was a gun fest for many US citizens who happily posed for photos with their weaponry under the Christmas tree.

Thanks to Instagram we see people standing in front of Christmas trees

their brand new guns. There were also a plethora of pics to be found on Facebook and Twitter.
Firearm sales in the US have sky-rocketed since the Newtown school massacre, as debate over gun control rages and enthusiasts fear certain assault weapons and high-capacity magazines could be banned.

A semi-automatic Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle was used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in which a disturbed local young man shot dead 20 young children, six adults and his mother before taking his own life.
