Why would Americans buy 150,000 more guns last month than a year ago? All told, gun sales, which skyrocketed in 2008 in advance of the presidential election then fell back somewhat to normal in 2009, are up 27% overall this year compared with 2011 numbers.

What would happen if a liberal Supreme Court deemed the Constitution irrelevant? Oh yeah.

Where is the corresponding spike in murders, blood in the streets, etc.?

You mean other than them invalidating governments only claim to legitimate power? Ya...I'm not sure they are ready for the repercussions of that.

I fail to understand how a treaty with a corrupt organization like the UN can simply throw out our rights under the Second Amendment. How can this be constitutional? Could a UN treaty also take away the right of free speech by placing place US Internet and media content under a UN commission? Could the rights of US citizens to speedy trial, trial by jury and our 5th Amendment Rights be similarly signed away by a treaty giving international courts jurisdiction in the US? If the US Constitution and Bill of Rights can simply be signed away by treaties with foreign governments we have no national sovereignty and our whole constitutional system of government can be signed away by whim.

Relinquishing our sovereignty to the UN is exactly what the Democrat Obama-led commies are determined to do.

Hot weather...people go boating....boating accidents....people need to restock. Does that answer it?

That’s the ticket. Roll your own. 125 gr JHP sitting on top of some 2400 was one of my fave loads when I ran a .357

I got plenty of Winchester and Hodgdon I’ll be using up first. Haven’t tried any Alliant powders yet.

Word of caution on 2400 - that one requires careful work-up to max loads. Best used in 4’ barrels or longer. Short barrels tend to make a big - and I mean BIG - flash and leave unburned powder.

OK, I don’t really like revolvers with less than 4” barrels.

Same here. Had ‘em, had my hands and ears smacked by ‘em enough to give ‘em a pass a long time ago. Had a little S&W model 60, and a Ruger .357 snubby.

Now, having said that, one of my favorite pistols today is a S&W 629 .44 with a 6” barrel. Big bang theory indeed.

Even if Obama signs the UN treaty (he says he will), it can't be adopted unless two thirds of the Senate vote for it.

It can't be formally "adopted" but it can be imposed by regulation and EO in a second kenyan term with 5 Justices on the Court, including Chief Justice Earl W John Roberts to back it all up.

I figured that statement would be a give away to anyone in the area that shoots.I need to get some time on the range.I’ve owned handguns,used to shoot at Bill Jacksons and Clearwater Firearms.Never owned a 12ga/pistol grip-assume quite a kick.Later.

I know the guys at the Apopka location pretty well. Haven’t been to any of his new places down south. I need to get some range time with my shotgun too. Just need to check what size shot they allow.

The UN Arms Trade Treaty that has been identified by observers as a flagrant threat to the second amendment and which Barack Obama is determined to sign...............Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton also warns that the agreement “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
