This is one of the best articles I’ve read on the whole gun buying craziness in some time. Well worth the read.
The United States is the most heavily armed nation in world history, and it seems we have President Barack Obama to thank for it.
Before you ask: we’re not talking about the U.S. military, we’re talking about the firearms owned by the general population. The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) estimates that there are roughly 300 million firearms in the United States — and of those, nearly 40 million new firearms have been sold just since Barack Obama came into office in 2009….
…Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants — of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20 — were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone …
The battle over the second amendment is getting bitter and contentious. There is an amazing cultural divide between those who believe in liberty, and those who seek to control others using government in the name of the ‘common good.’ Below is what liberal ‘tolerance’ looks like when you dare to confront them with the facts in regards to the frenzied attempts at gun-grabbing occurring not just at the federal level, but at the state and local levels all across the country as well. The gentleman in the video was making some great points and ones I make all the time. Yep, more fun in Obama’s America….
Second Amendment activist, James Kaleda, was forcefully removed from a hearing on a new gun control bill in NJ during his testimony.
Yes, James’ testimony got a little heated, but he was still making an intelligent argument.
Notice in the video the legislators laugh as they have their security (armed with guns of course) remove Kaleda before he finished his testimony.
Kaleda receives a standing ovation from the gallery during his ejection.
What happens next is even better.
And in the spirit of ‘all things gun’ I offer you the following. One of my new female FB friends and old classmates, who also happens to have a concealed carry permit like I do, posted the following short story. I thought it was good enough to pass along to you.
“Went to look at something for my dad off a Craigslist ad today. Pulled up didn’t like situation so decided to use my bra holster and carry my gun just cuz. (yes i have a permit wasn’t illegal). Apparently my shirt was tighter as I left. I then had one more question so walked back up and heard the guy discussing the fact that I might have had 3 boobs and how he had only seen that on the internet. I laughed so he could hear me and he turned around eyes wide and I said ” only 2 boobs here and a .38 special but do you have an owners manual? ” His friend spit beer 10 feet across the garage out his nose I swear !!! Gotta love MEN ! hehe”
Remember, free men (and women) own guns. Slaves don’t. The right to protect yourself as well as your family, neighborhood, community, freedoms and nation is an inherent right, not one bestowed upon you by a government. You are not a serf, slave, or subject, but a sovereign citizen of the Republic. Act like it.
And as we like to provide the occasional public service here and not just commentary, here is a link to an AK Shooters Package complete with semi-auto rifle, four 30 magazines, and Bulldog Tactical Carry Case to help get you started.
