Are these people bying the guns in anticipation of the comong of Gustav or the predicted riots when Obambi loses the election. Be safe, do it for either reason.

Problem is, the store where I intended to buy my Bushmaster AR from, burnt to the ground last Wednesday night. I drove by just as the first fire truck arrived on scene. As of last night, they still had a fire truck on site watching for flare ups, and at least one police car to guard the guns.

The ammo cooking off sounded like popcorn, at least from the other side of the highway.

Estimates were that there had been around 500-600 firearms, and 50-80 thousand rounds of ammo in there.

The fire flared on Friday as shown below.

It was reported that the vault, with all the guns and the jewelry, survived more or less intact, as far as they can tell without being able to get in to it.

Here's what it looked like when it was going real good.

Slight correction, the fire was Tueday night, started about 9:30, and flared back up on Friday afternoon.

Brings tears to my eyes. Oh Lord, what a waste of precious resources!
