Obama's re-election
drives gun sales

CNN Money, by Aaron Smith

NEW YORK -- Gun sales are up in the wake of Barack Obama's re-election on Tuesday, driven by fears of tighter regulations under a Democratic president, especially for firearms that might be classified as assault weapons. "Sales are up," said John Kielbasa, owner of Fernwood Firearms in Hankins, N.Y. "I had a guy waiting here first thing in the morning [after the election.] He came in, bought two AK-47s." Kielbasa said that he sells semiautomatic versions of the fully automatic Kalashnikov rifles, as is permitted by law. He said the demand for semiautomatic

No surprise there! There's one area of business that will continue to thrive.

I certainly hope the millions of people who are stocking up on ammo and guns took the time to actually VOTE on Tuesday. Just saying.....

Every sale is tracked by municipal, state and federal government! Their databases will be opened up to web sites that will identify and eventually demonized every one of them! Obama has been working with the UN to circumvent the Second Amendment. It is just a matter of a short time before a wide variety of arms will be declared illegal and voluntary surrender programs will begin. After that, illegal arms will be proactively sought out and lawbreakers will be brought to "justice". Your new liberal/progressive masters will stop at nothing to disarm you! Elections do indeed have consequences and this will be a doozy!

#2, you are right. They are wasting their money. It would be better spent instead by buying food storage.

The very first thing zippy did once he was sure he won on Tuesday was to sign the UN Small Arms Treaty. Gun control is priority on his agenda. An unarmed public will be easier to control.

#2 "every sale" is not tracked by "municipal" (especially) state and federal. Backgroundchecks are from the FBI and administered by states. Nature of the purchase is not even asked (exception - handguns) Muncipalities are absolutely prohibited to regulate firarms by law in some states (particularly in PA).

#6 he did not 'sign' anything much less a treaty. The US expressed a willingness to support renewing discussions on forming such a treaty. Ratifying it (assuming it is not aborted again) would require a 2/3 Senate majority (do the math).

Other commenter: I'd say you are correct. It would be unwise to underestimate 100 MILLION Americans.

If you are concerned about government tracking, buy your guns without paper at gun shows and private sales.

#7 is right. And private sales are tracked by no one. My advice is to have a long gun, perhaps a semi-auto carbine with at least 20/30 round mag (you can still find them out there), a 12 gauge shotgun, and one or two handguns (9mm and .40).

Me? I have enough firearms, its ammo I'm worried about.

I've got plenty of guns. I've been buying $20 worth of ammo every month for 4 years. That's $960 worth roughly and it's easy to swing at $20 a month.

#7 as far as the requirement for Senate approval.....BO has shown that when the legislature does not act in a way he approves......he simply issues a executive directive.
BO feels he is above the electorate AND the legislatures.

Poster 10 shares a concern of mine about ammo. The EPA considered a ban on lead ammunition early in obama's term, but cited no jurisdiction. As with all liberal causes the lead ban will resurface. Liberals never give up. Gun grabbers undoubtedly view obama's second term as a once in a lifetime opportunity to attain their ultimate inkext

After assessing our firearms this week, we purchased an additional .22 rifle. It’s not much for protection, but it will do for small game. We felt it was important to add the .22 to our collection so we were prepared to use whatever ammo might be available. We have firearms for most all of the common types of ammo now. We’re also buying archery equipment (bows & crossbows)at garage sales when it’s cheap.

We determined this week that we are doubling (or more) our dried and canned food storage supplies, too.

We just did gun and ammo inventory at our house. My mother (75 years old!) just got her conceal carry permit. 22 yr old son has his and is an excellent marksman. I'm next. We've been target practicing for fun out on our farm. Sure is fun to shoot up old microwaves and bottles. I hate guns and what they do ( pediatric critical care nurse - I try to SAVE lives and prevent injury) but by God, I will not allow my family to go unprotected. There are a whole lot of Mama Grizzlies out here and I believe the Liar in Chief has totally underestimated us.

Smug sheeple in cities who really hate the fact that gun owners have a fighting chance to defend themselves, are gleeful about the coming ´laws´ that will make owning any currently legal weapon, illegal. Even the dumber ones know it won´t stop criminals. They just want Republicans to be in the boat with them.

I can´t decide if I think BIG government will do baby steps like assault weapons ban and higher ammo taxes first or if they will just do it all at once with a Supreme Court that makes things up. I guess a combination of everything as soon as possible.

OK let´s think seriously here for a minute. Let´s say I buy 4 guns and 5,000 rounds of ammo. I stock up on 6 months supply of food and toilet paper.

Now the goon squad surrounds my home. I pickup two guns and may get to shoot one or two goons but then they open fire and blow my house and me away.

What good are the other two guns and the remaining 4,950 rounds, not to mention the food?

Just a thought.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
