"... I went to Walmart to pick up some ammo and since I was there figured that I’d check out their shotguns. ..." ...

"... I picked up some boxes of Winchester for the rifle and this is what transpired next:"

"Me: 'If I was to get a shotgun, what kind would you recommend?'

"The clerk said with a look of concern on his face: 'Mam, I don’t mean to 'downgrade women' but you couldn’t handle one. If you do get one you should get a 20 gauge.'"

Post-election guns and ammo panic buying spree has begun: There is a better way

... "The intent here is not to make light of the concerns leading to this new buying spree. Before the total vote count was completed, Obama moved to advance the U.N.'s global 'gun control' agenda ..."

"In light of that, the idea of getting ordnance while the getting is good is not without merit. It is difficult not to wonder, though, what could have been accomplished had a nation of citizens who cherish their Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms had put as much time, energy and money into defeating anti-gun candidates, as we now put into outracing the infringements they will seek now that they are elected." ...

"I used to hang with a guy who sold time shares. Mr. X used to talk about leading LTTS (Lambs to the Slaughter). 'OK, you got a guy who’s a hanging chad. He wants to buy. He doesn’t want to buy. So you stop in the middle of your pitch. Just like that. You say 'Oh shit!' The customer says 'what?' 'I can't believe this! My colleague just sold that time share. Look, I'm so sorry I wasted your time.' No matter what he says you tell him nope, he can't have it. It's sold. You hang up. Ten minutes later you call him back with the good news. 'I’ve worked something out with my colleague. But you gotta buy it now.' Works like a charm.' And there you have it: the great post-Obama re-election gun buying panic of 2012 . . ." ...

"While the firearms community is debating whether there is any real threat of the new push for a global arms trade treaty – resurrected just hours after Barack Obama’s re-election was affirmed – perhaps they ought to speculate about two more of their perfect storm nightmares."

"Recently, in NRA v. BATFE, the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upheld the ban on the sale of handguns by federally licensed dealers to persons under the age of 21. The law in question, which was codified in sections of 18 USC § 922 and was passed as part of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 [PDF], raises serious issues under the Second Amendment. Persons in the 18 to 20-year-old age group at issue have borne arms in military service since the US was founded and are entitled to vote under the Twenty-Sixth Amendment."

"Under the law, such persons may possess handguns, non-dealers may transfer handguns to them and a dealer can sell a handgun to a parent to give to such person. ..." ...

... "Stir all of that together and the dominant impression I got from the Ruger was that it was noticeably more difficult to shoot than the Shield. This isn’t to say that I couldn’t shoot it well, because with the appropriate attention to the sights and trigger control I could make any shot with it that I could make with the Shield…it’s just that with the Shield I could typically do it faster. The difference was especially stark when it came to trying to empty the magazine as fast as I could guarantee a hit on an 8″ circle. With the Shield it looked pretty much like a mag dump. With the LC9 there was a distinct pause between shots as I smashed through the long, relatively heavy double-action trigger and tried to re-establish my grip." ...

"ArmaLite is adding a new California-legal variant of their hard-hitting AR-50A1 to their line-up, and introducing a brand new rifle called the AR-30A1 in two models and calibers."

"The new AR-50A1 is chambered in .416 Barrett, a cartridge descended from the .50 BMG, and not subject to laws prohibiting the ownership of .50 caliber rifles. It exchanges some power at the muzzle for superior ballistics, and retains more energy at greater distances than .50 BMG. Capable of producing over 9,000 foot-pounds of force at the muzzle, nobody would call it watered-down." ...

While I have said many times that I don’t think an Assault Weapons Ban has any chance of passing in the current political climate, I have also said that gun control via UN Treat or Executive Order is possible."

"Obama’s re-election has forced Republicans to rethink their policy positions. And rightly so, because the Republican Party was trounced on Tuesday in embarrassing fashion."

"But there is a way forward for the GOP. First, we need the AWOL Republican 'establishment' to reassert itself through the Republican National Committee and 501(c) groups like Crossroads GPS. Second, we need to support gay marriage. Third, we need a gentler policy and attitude toward immigration reform. And fourth, we need to stay strong on individual freedoms — i.e., the Second Amendment, the right to life and economic liberty." ...

"The [NRA] was 'all in' to 'defend freedom and defeat Obama.' The Second Amendment Foundation strongly warned of the dangers a second Obama administration would bring. Many state groups documented the potential dangers lurking in a second Obama term. Appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court and other Federal justices, U.N. gun ban treaties, Fast and Furious cover-up, executive orders of BATFE on extra red tape in border states, a renewal of the so-called 'assault weapons' ban and the use of executive privilege. ...

... "It’s my opinion that this election was controlled and won by open borders, union labor and entitlements, including food stamps. These people have paid for their entitlements with their votes. I can’t think of anything else they can do for the party to repay the gifts they have received. Now I wonder how long the food will be placed at the fence."

"When they attack the Second Amendment, and win, the working taxpayer will not have a weapon with which to protect himself, his property, or his neighbors, and you will not be an exception. Still, there is no need to worry, Homeland Security will be there with its heavy firepower to protect the intruder." ...

"President Obama won, but what should you expect for his next term?"

"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been negotiating with the United Nations on three issues:
  • The United Nations is going to impose a global tax of $266 per person, per year, on all Americans.

  • The United Nations is going to mandate that all guns owned by the people be confiscated.

  • Anyone who criticizes Islam will be charged with Islamophobia and criminally punished."

"We’re all aware of the restrictive gun laws in the State of California which require low capacity magazines for handguns, fixed magazines for 'assault' rifles, and a whole lot of running around just to be granted the right to carry a concealed firearm."

"Now, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who has championed gun control in her state for decades ... wishes to bring even more stringent federal mandates to the land of the free." ...

The testimony details a series of battles fought by a group of cartel members attempting to drive out rival gangsters from territory in Mexico’s desert west. To do it, the group sought weapons from the U.S., including at least 30 WASR-10 rifles — a variant of the AK-47 — allegedly acquired from Border Patrol agents." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C)
