Why gun sales are booming
Fears of crime, a potential crackdown on gun owners, a social collapse and even zombies have Americans loading up as never before. Here's why gun sales -- and gun stocks -- have taken off.

It isn't just Obama. It is politicians in general. Look at what they are doing in Obamaville (Chicago) and Washington DC.
What is stupid about gun control is that it only stops law-biding citizens. If I am going to go into a school and shoot everyone, do you think I care about a gun law saying guns aren’t allowed at schools? Do you think I care about a gun law saying I can’t carry a concealed weapon? I read at one point several years ago (it is no doubt worse now) that the average person that commits murder with a gun breaks 17 gun laws in the process. Seriously they are going to murder someone!!! The last thing on their mind is gun laws. I can almost hear him thinking, “I really want to murder this guy but man I can’t carry a concealed weapon and I can’t have guns at school. I guess I won’t murder him.” You think gangs care that Chicago and DC are enacting ever stricter gun laws to the point they practically want them illegal in the city limits? You think they are going to give up their guns? Not a chance. But what they now have is a situation where they know they can break into any house they want and the owner of that house can’t legally have a gun to protect himself. IDIOTS!!! My kindergartner has more common sense than that. Gun laws only stop good citizens from carrying guns and thus being able to defend themselves. People that are willing to commit murder don’t care about gun laws and will find away to get guns no matter what just like people find away to get illegal drugs. The fact that Chicago and DC have some of the strictest gun laws yet also have some of the worst gun violence should be proof of that but some people can't stand facts.
Remember what history has taught us:
Politicians prefer unarmed peasants.
An armed society is a polite society.
The right to own a gun is in the second amendment of the United States Constitution. It is a right not a privilege. To drive a car is a privilege and not a right.
Any gun owner must respect the law and take all available methods in securing the weapon in a safe place and out of reach of children.
The criminals can always get guns.
When you disarm the people you are helping the criminals.
The thing to fear is not my guns.
But Politicians who want to take away our "Rights".
Most people don't realize that "Governments" have killed more people that individual idiots.
Freedom exists only when the Government "fears" the reprisals that it's own citizens will exact on it's politicians if they go too far.
But that is "lost" on those that believe the leftest media, and have no idea about what history has taught those that know it.
To all you "leftists", ask yourself this one question:
During the Second World War, when Hitler was invading all the Countries around him. Why didn't he invade Switzerland????
Because they could defend themselves.
(And they still have that "Right")
In all the other Countries surounding them, the nazi's just went to the local Government's and asked for all the names of those that had "registered" their guns. SEE HOW IT WORKS!!!!!!
I will defend my "rights" . PERIOD.
You cant blame folks for gearing up for the inevitable rioting and cival wars that are coming in the wake of the Federal Govt collapse.
Guns are a good commodity to own. They resale well, fun entertainment and practical for self defense. On the more extreme side, guns and ammo will hold better value and trade easier than the toilet paper fiat currency we have now.
I think a well rounded ownership of guns, ammo, money, precious metals and food/water is a good investment if you can afford it.
Ironically, the gun industry is the only one that has really prospered under the Obama administration.
