It seems that there is a growing concern about who will be leading this Country. The result is that Americans are buying fewer cars, and trucks. Buying less expensive wine, saving in all manner of areas, except one. Gun and ammo sales. Google this and see what you come up with. Note also that the Fed is keeping tabs on this. I wonder why?????

NEWS BULLETIN
I just read that an 8 year old boy has accidentally fatally shot himself in the head while firing an Uzi at a Gun Show (!) in Westfield, Mass.
The news on the computer said it was two hours old.
The gun show had a machine gun shooting range with Instructors and the boy was firing the gun and it kicked back and fired a round into his head in front of Instructors, parents, etc.
 
Such a tradgedy....and it won't be good news for gun shows, either.  Plus, there was the shooting at the Arkansas university today, too.

I heard it on the Radio earlier today.  The anti gunners are already all over it, I gotta agree though, why in the world would you let an 8 year old kid fire a short auto weapon like that without some else holding on to it.  Just really sad.

Went down to the range and gunshop yesterday for a cup of coffee and conversation. I was only there a couple of hours, and in that time I saw at least 3 guns go out the door. Didn't get much conversation, they were too busy.

Absolutely.  Remember the video we saw last spring when the young man ( idiot ) was firing a fully automatic Pistol by laying the frame across his left hand----and he wound up shooting himself in the hand? 
 
Imagine an EIGHT YEAR OLD, for God's sake.  What were they thinking?  NOW all of us are gonna look like rednecks!!

Actually, I think the saying goes "better to have and not need, than to need and not have".

The shooting at the school is bad, and so is the 8 year old.  To bad he didn't break the 180 degree rule and clip his parents because then I would know natural selection really works.  We've been real busy at the gunstore I work at as well.  Since working there I have learned one thing though, not everyone should have guns, nor oxygen, nor the skin they are using, and a lot of them don't deserve the "carbon footprint" they are leaving.

 I'd more say in case the economy completely crashes ... we're going to have to defend home and family from the inner city scum that will be coming to kill and rob us for our food ! The people are not descent and mentally stable as were the folks in the last depression ... the trash of today will kill you for $10.00 or your used sneakers ! About every expert I have heard said it's going to get alot worse before it gets better . No matter who wins ... I fear we're going to have to lock and load before it's all over . Cool

They tried that once! It didn't work! Created more problems than it was supposed to fix; and it wasn't even in the Bill of Rights.
Wait till they ban something that is in the Bill of Rights.

There is a real potential for civil disorder. Not only has the radical muslim world declared war on us but for the first time ever we have a guy who was at least previously a muslim who wants to disarm us in violation of our Constitution and who really sees the law as a tool to be bent to his own use rather than a set of rules applying to everyone fairly and guarding liberty.  Add the financial instability caused by government mandates in the community reinvestment act.  Shocked The democrats created the problem and now they are here to solve it like a phoenix from the ashes.  Loco
 
 He can keep the change.
