A gun ownership boom?
Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 12/19/2012 5:51:37 PM

Even as Americans have become more and more opposed to new gun control measures in recent years, the actual number of households owning guns has declined. (Snip) But then something happened in 2011. Gun ownership spiked to its highest level since 1994 — 47 percent. The people who suddenly had more guns? Not the white males, the Southerners, and the Republicans most associated with guns. Instead they were mostly Democrats….… women …… and people in every region but the South.

Comments:
Look at the article for the charts. But I´ll bet it´s spiking even higher every time Obama opens his mouth about guns.

A word to the wise and ever vigilant, there may be many out there who seek to keep and bear an AR-type rifle in the coming days in anticipation of some kind of ban being enacted (by hook or by crook - see "Obamacare"), but may not have the means to purchase a $900+ rifle.

My advice to you is to buy stripped AR lower receivers. As per the law, a firearms is not necessarily the completed item. The law considers the serial number-marked received to be the "firearm". Therefore, if you have $200 - $300 available and you seek to thwart the efforts of the gun-grabbers, my advice is to purchase "stripped" (sans trigger group, stock, buffer tube, etc.) AR receivers right now from reputable and quality manufacturers. There will always be time to "build" up your rifle into a functioning firearm (or have someone do it for you) even after a ban.

I would also advise (for those in "free" states) to purchase at least a couple of dozen USGI aluminum and/or polycarbonate standard capacity magazines (20-30rds) from likes of D&H, Magpull, etc., while you can.

It´s worth noting that the first battles of the American Revolution were fought in April 1775 at Lexington and Concord when King George III sent his troops to disarm Americans. This act to deprive free men their God-given rights is why the Second Amendment was enacted as a means of protecting those rights forevermore.

The politics of this are pretty simple

The issue is highly important to a large group of Americans. Those who are Second Amendment supporters probably make up 80% to 90% of that large group to whom the issue is one of their top 5 most important issues.

It is not unlike abortion as an issue in that the group supporting abortion on demand is not a majority but for a large group of the electorate it is their top, or only, issue.

Time, money and indivudual involement make the groups powerful especially at the COngressional level.

A differnece between the Second Amendment supporters is that an overall majority of citizens broadly support the right to bear arms while a only a minority of all voters support abortiion on demand.

The media treatment of the issues makes it easier for the abortion supporters to appear to be a larger group than it is and vice versa in the case of the Second Amendment supporters. Work harder is the only solution

Re: the AR-15 price - find an SKS, which is basically the old Chinese version of the AK-47 - lots cheaper than an AR or AK, and shoot just as well. I was in a CPA´s office today - his 20-something daughter called and said that she had just bought two AR-15s. In a gun shop this afternoon - they had gotten two AR-15s in at lunch-time. A woman called asking if they had any in stock, and she bought both of them. It is women who are buying guns now. Big time.

The Apocalypse approaches....

The coming dystopia that America is turning into will become the new "video game" in real time. Only this time, there will be no reset button, and the score will be kept with very real kills.

"Last man standing" shall no longer be a euphemism for mere endurance. Bruce Willis has shown us just how it might look.

Re: Women & the AR / SKS / AK

The SKS uses the same 7.62x39 cartridge as the AK, but they are different rifles in function and design. Nonetheless, I own a Yugo SKS and an Arsenal (US-build/ Bulgarian licensed) AK. The Arsenal AK is a fine weapon, but I have to say, I enjoy shooting the SKS more.

However, between the three rifles, you just can´t beat the ergonomics and accuracy of the AR. In fact, an AR-type carbine is probably ideal for shooters of smaller stature. Low-recoil, inherently accurate, outstanding iron sights, and none of the punishing recoil of the "full size" .30 caliber battlerifle cartridges (30-´06, 8mm, 7.62x54, 7.62x51 (.308)). Plus, its extremely modular and adaptable. An AR featuring a rail-mounted flashlight (plus an EO-Tech/ACOG/etc. sight) is an outstanding civil defense rifle in times of civil unrest, looting prevention (such as most recently in the wake of Irene), and home defense.

I´ve instructed a handful of women to operate and shoot the AR and they are taken-aback at its "comfort" factor compared to the bolt-action/semi-auto .30 caliber (and similar) rifles their fathers, brothers, etc. may have taught them to shoot years before.

#2, i have advised the very same thing, but get a copy of Shotgun News and you can find AR lowers for about $100. Add in shipping and the FFL fees to a local dealer(shotgun news used to have a listing of mail-order friendly FFLs for most areas) and you can probably get one delivered for $150. And the beauty of an AR is that the same lower can be reconfigured from a 16" barreled collapsible stock compact rifle to a heavy 28" varmint rifle and in a number of different calibers.

The study is bullshitte.

Remember when doctors were asking if there were guns in the house? Who´d be stupid enough to say "yes"?

A telephone pollster calls to ask if you have guns in your household - two answers prevail:

- "click. errrrrrrr."

- "nope, no guns here. Not a one. Don´t know anyone who owns any. Hey have a nice day, and don´t call back."

Like the rest of us, airport security screeners like to think they can read body language. The Transportation Security Administration has spent some $1 billion training thousands of “behavior detection officers” to look for facial expressions and other nonverbal clues that would identify terrorists. But critics say there’s no evidence that these efforts have stopped a single terrorist or accomplished much beyond inconveniencing tens of thousands of passengers a year. The T.S.A. seems to have fallen for a classic form of self-deception: the belief that you can read liars’ minds by watching their bodies. Most people think liars give themselves away by

Prosecutors almost never go to war against each other. But in Pennsylvania, Democratic attorney general Kathleen Kane is being brutally criticized by Seth Williams, Philadelphia’s district attorney and a fellow Democrat. Williams is upset that last year one of Kane’s first acts in office was to decline to prosecute four Philadelphia state legislators and other government officials. In a sting operation, all had been caught accepting cash or Tiffany jewelry in exchange for votes or favors. Kane, who is white, has defended herself, saying that the investigation was badly managed and tainted by racism. She claims the criticism comes from

National Republican activists certainly have noticed that Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal has stepped up his activity lately. A speech Thursday night in Mobile, Ala., showed that he has stepped up his game as well. (Snip) In style, that’s what struck me, too: Jindal now has a much more forceful mien, combined with the well-modulated passion of somebody who means business. He’s not just putting on a show. He also wove in plenty of wit — not canned jokes, but wry asides conversationally delivered. Substantively, Jindal struck many of the requisite notes: America should not “outsource our foreign policy to Putin,” we shouldn’t

In Quick´s novel, the United States is targeted by three nuclear devices, from an unknown enemy. The West Coast gets hit by a high-altitude nuclear blast whose electromagnetic pulse (EMP) wipes out electronics and electrical power, causing millions to die from a lack of food, as transport breaks down, and a lack of water, as the pumps shut down.

Imperialism, Robert Kaplan argues, has gotten a bad rap, “despite empires’ having offered the most benign form of order for thousands of years, keeping the anarchy of ethnic, tribal, and sectarian war bands to a reasonable minimum.” He concludes: This by no means obliges the American military to repair complex and populous Islamic countries that lack critical components of civil society. America must roam the world with its ships and planes, but be very wary of where it gets involved on the ground. And it must initiate military hostilities only when an overwhelming national interest is threatened. Otherwise, it should

In regard to widespread disdain for the Middle Ages, C. S. Lewis felt that many modern people suffer from a kind of “chronological snobbery” and that “the modern conception of Progress ... is simply a myth, supported by no evidence whatever.” Certainly many minds smugly assume our world’s moral superiority to that of people in the past. That assumption merits some close critical scrutiny. This claim probably does not rest on an improvement in the numbers of deaths in war and genocide.

The Cold War map of the world divided into two camps was simple and clear. The post-American world will be a much more ambiguous place. Instead of two global ideological alliances based around two world powers, there will be three post-ideological powers, no longer global in scope, and one worldwide ideological alliance. The United States, Russia and China are post-ideological states. Russia and China have abandoned Communism. The United States is even abandoning nationalism; to say nothing of capitalism, democracy or freedom. Its rulers cling to scraps of global leftist ideology that isolate them from their own people.

The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.
