(POCATELLO, ID)  —  Empty gun racks are becoming an all-to-common sight for area firearm dealers. President Barack Obama is expected to announce an unprecedented package of gun control measures today. At High Desert Tactical in downtown Pocatello, demand for semi-automatic rifles and magazines has been so high that store owner Tucker Bloxham has struggled to keep much on his shelves. A White House spokesman said the measures will include universal background checks, restrictions on rifles that look like assault weapons, and bans on high-capacity magazines.
