In this July 20, 2014 photo, gun dealer Mel Bernstein carries box for a rifle while making a sale at his store, Dragonman's, east of Colorado Springs, Colo. When Colorado lawmakers expanded background checks on firearms last year, they were expecting a huge increase. But the actual number the first 12 months of the law is far lower than projected, according to an analysis of state data by The Associated Press.

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on July 3, 2014 in New York CityMixed corporate earnings produced varied results on Wall Street this week, resulting in gains for the Nasdaq, losses for the Dow and a nearly flat S&P 500. The tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index, buoyed by strong results from Apple and Facebook, advanced 17.41 points (0.39 percent) on the week to 4,449.56. Market observers were positive on earnings season after the initial wave of reports. "It's been an okay, but not a great, earnings season, and not enough to get some momentum behind the market to make higher levels," Michael James, managing director of equity trading at Wedbush Securities, said Friday.
