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.

Obama comes out and says this:
"And we recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation -- that hunting and shooting are part of a cherished national heritage," he said."
The right to bear arms has little to do with hunting and everything to do about making sure somebody like Obama doesn't try to seize more power.
"0 YESS" Give Obama a second term and you will see that he and the Clintons and many more will try to reveive us of our rights to own our guns, and or put put the UN regulations on us!!!!
<<<Victim of the Government...Just like the war on drugs, The Government should just accept defeat but it will never happen. This is not about taking the guns away from the innocent, this is all about "MONEY".. how much treatment will be for gunshot victims to recover, how much taxes we will pay to cover recovery..but what they dont see is how much will it cost if a woman who has had her gun taking away and raped by an aids victim...would be alot cheaper to put a bullet in her attacker wouldnt you say WASHINGTON?..
Dont deprive AMERICANS of our guns, then ****rt will go off and say "America is an easy target!!!..fukn idiots
There are many reasons that our unique love affair with guns is growing stronger. One widely held belief is that President Barack Obama's election -- and potential re-election -- spurred fears that he will crack down on gun ownership, SOMETHING HE HASN'T DONE THUS FAR." Whereas Mittens sits there and switches his positions on the topic of banning guns, but people still support him? Seems like a lot of hate (for some odd reason) towards a president who has not taken away guns from anyone, but allowed them to be carried more places. It's unfortunate people like
When it comes to anything a marxist type wants to achieve politically it is done incrementally and covertly..It's in their operations manual..Fast and furious was a perfect example of this..Take heed Freedom Lovers as this stuff, (underhanded malarkey) has been and will be on the menu if Obama gets 4 more years..Voting a straight Republican ticket will put an end to it. They are the Lessor of 2
Give me a break, Politicians don't have the guts to go house to house and collect guns and Americans don't have the guts to revolt.
Everyone should just calm down and focus on getting America more competitive in the new global economy: Buying American (guns or not, ) Tort reform, turning in medical & social security fradusters.
To say that obama has not interfered with our goun ownership rights is stretching the truth just a bit. His secretary of state, hillary clinton, has been instrumental in the un's small arms treaty banning the sale of small arms. Last time I looked the secretary of state worked for the president. she is obamas pit bull when it comes to firearms. and lets not forget the attorney general who also works for the president and what he did with fast and furious.
Keep this in mind -
Democrats + liberal/socialist/communist = obama
Republicans = Constitutional Republic
I need to go out and buy more ammo.
I love this forum. Every time guns (religion, politics, defense--you name it) are mentioned, the racists come out in force. Look at the dimwits below; one says Obamaville, another says Obummer--you get the picture.
But it must be hard to write in wearing a white hood with eye holes small enough to hide your identity. How do you guys do it?
What has happened is simple, poor economy equals increased crime. The price of ammo has doubled in 5 years while the cost of a gun has stayed pretty normal. The have given up on attacking gun ownership and are taxing the heck out of the producers to increase the cost of bullets.
I have several guns and a case of ammo for each. Every year we have a fun weekend of clays and run threw our oldest shells. Every year the cost to replace has gone up. The only ammo staying normal is .22 and .22 long. This tells me its not the brass. Beware of wolf in sheep's clothing.
