Fox News Latino ^ | January 15, 2013 | Victor Garcia

With Vice President Joseph Biden set to deliver his recommendations for gun control legislation to President Obama, people in states with large populations of gun rights advocates are taking action.

“There’s an image floating around the Internet naming Barack Obama firearms salesman of the year,” said Raúl Mas Canosa, a conservative political commentator. “No one has done more for the sales of firearms and magazines than Barack Obama.”

He added: “People are extremely concerned and expressing themselves with their pocketbook.”

But defense attorney Randy Zelin believes President Obama has nothing to do with it.

"It’s no different than any other market. It’s supply and demand," said Zelin."If everyone would strip themselves with partisan politics, how could you possible quarrel with arguing against gun control with the tragedies that have happened?"

In the five states with the largest population of Latinos in the country, the volume of firearm owners based on background checks by the FBI have increased dramatically. Gun rights advocates feel the tide turning against them – so they’d rather stock up now while they still can...

This guy must be some defense attorney. Perhaps he should learn how to speak first.

Well not this Patriot Babe, I am an American of Mexican ancestry who speaks Spanish and no way in hellllll did I vote for the Kenyan Bastard Usuper. I am so pissed in where our country is heading. I heard Mark Levin stating that his book will also be in Spanish. It is about time that someone gets to the Hispanic Market to teach them the difference between a Republic and Democracy. They will wake up and realize they had been used as a ploy between Mexico and the US. I hope to find a job so I can afford to purchase my first gun and take classes because right now hmmm I’m still a Gun Virgin =)
