The nation's gun owners have the presidential election in their sights.
Some are up at arms about the prospect of future gun legislation should Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama win the White House. Others are beefing up their personal arsenals, skittish that firearms could become scarce or too expensive in the near future.
"If the economy is down, and gun sales are up, it shows you just how deep-seated the concern is out there about the situation," said Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association.
"Most gun owners at least until recently have been misled by Senator Obama. Though he claims to be an advocate for the Second Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate says otherwise. He voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens," Mr. Pearson continued.
"His campaign has done a good job burying his take on firearms," he added.
Hal Goldstein, owner of the Armory gun shop in Annapolis, said, "People should be scared."
"Sales are definitely up," he said. "I've got people with Obama stickers on their cars coming in to buy. We're looking at possible a super- Democratic majority [in Congress], and a president who's going to do what's best for the collective. I don't want to sound paranoid, but the prices could go way out of sight."

The Messiah and his Marxist allies will do whatever is required in order to silence dissent and enforce compliance to their collectivist vision of utopia. The First and Second Amendments are barriers to their hegemony and will soon be eliminated by a Democrat super-majority and a leftist-packed Supreme Court.
His voting record speaks for itself. Voting for life, guns, Constitution and No Hussein dude.
FOX just did a report that said there was no difference between Obama and McCain on gun rights. Unbelievable!
Its not just The Øne, but The Øne in conjunction with majorities led by pelousi and reed (sic), and in a year or two, a left supreme court.
Fox got their feelie-weelies hurt when he said he’d be up by more if it weren’t for them.
Anyone who thinks a Democrat sweep won’t end with major gun control laws needs to pull their head out of their...
These would likely be the union guys who think 0bama and the Democrats will increase their paycheck and security. In the short run this will be true — in the long run, as history shows, the same paycheck will be targeted by the same Democrats.
It’s the middle class who suffer under socialism. Rich people will buy, or think, their way out of it like they always have. Unless it ends up like in Russia where they simply walked rich people from the homes into the street and shot them in their heads — no more rich people to hate. The effect was no more food to eat either.
The working man has to choose between freedom and “free” stuff. A union paycheck should never trump a man’s freedom.
Simple. Do not give em your guns. Just whats in em.
I may have been born at night but not last night.
The govt. doesn't have to ban any firearms, all they have to do is tax them and the ammunition beyond the means of any average citizen's ability to purchase them............
That being said, a super majority, a stacked Supreme Court and the Constitution is up for radical change........good bye 2nd Amendment.
Today’s lesson comes from The Book of Invesco,
The Sermon on the Mile High Mount...
39”Therefore do not be like them. For The Obamessiah knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. 40In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Player, Barack the Messiah,
Washington be thy game.
Thy welfare come,
Grabbeth all thy guns
So we will think that we’re all in heaven.
Taxeth away our daily bread,
And giveth to those identity groups who trespass against work.
Make us not a prosperous nation,
For all wealth is evil,
And thine is the shakedown with all power and fury.
Obamunist forever. Amen.
41”Enter by the narrow gate of Obamunism; for wide is the gate and broad is the way of Capitalism that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 42Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to Obamunism, and there are few who find it. 43For if you take from each according to his ability, The Obamessiah shall give to each according to his needs.
Here endeth the lesson...
FOX has been very disappointing lately.
And criminals only need to sell more drugs or break into one more home to get money to buy more ammo.
All of the laws punish law abiding citizens. Every one of them.
If the Obamabots or any of his punk capos every show up at my door to confiscate my guns because they passed a law and made a criminal of me they’re going to find out what real gun control is.
FOX News lied through its teeth. Not one mention of their voting records. Plus that phony baloney “Constitutional Law Professor. He just kept repeating “0bama says he supports gun rights.” Nice of the Big Zero to say that in spite of his heavy-handed anti-gun voting record. Nothing fair and balanced in that report.
Thats what they did in Austrailia. I was in barbados last year. They have a gun club where you can keep your gun. Citizens can’t have guns....I got robbed at gunpoint. Coming soon to your town. Hey the people are going socialist. What can ya do? They can vote. Out of our pocket in to theirs. I do not think there are enough capitalists left to win elections.
We’re about to be attacked by a liberal brigade of 10,000 college professors, bed-wetting college students and cocaine-addled hip-hop rappers swinging their purses to take our guns away.
I love Australia... great place. ut I’ll never live there for that very reason.
And if people here want Socialism thats fine. They can drive to Canada and stay there.
I just bought a new AR-15 just in case Obama wins and they try to take our guns. It will be safely stored (not in my house).
We better shut off all the exits and southbound lanes of the interstate and FREE GAS.
