Gun sales will go through the roof-starting today (vanity)

Posted on 11/05/2008 4:53:09 AM PST by NoobRep

I've read a few articles here and there about how gun sales are skyrocketing because of this new dictator about to take power.

I'll be purchasing several handguns, shotguns and maybe more in the coming days myself. I no longer feel safe in this country and believe the Gestapo is about ready to come after those of us that challenge the authority of the dictatorship.

We shall see.

I picked up a Remington 870 and a Glock 23 recently; first time gun purchases for me.

Agreed! Thankfully I have all the guns I need, however I will be stocking up on some more ammo here directly.

Just make sure you have a good place to hide them when the Obamanite Thugs come to take them away from you (unless you prefer to ‘go out in a blaze of glory’).

An acquaintance was at the Ft Worth gun show this past weekend. ALL of the standard price AR’s were gone, most of the lowers as well. All that was left on Sunday was the gouge-priced stuff. I suppose that will be next.

To anyone who thinks this kind of tactic would be anything other than temporarily psychologically satisfying, I ask: how much training have you had in resisting Gestapo? Or resisting your average swat team?

Oh PLEASE! we had a nut kill a swat team member with a single shot shotgun not 4 months ago. The swat team killed him, but how many doors will they kick down if they lose one man every door they kick in. It’s a war of attrition. They would very quickly loss the war. They start kicking in doors and getting killed for it and they’ll stop kicking in doors. The reason we have a right to keep and bear arms is so we can overthrow the government if we had to. Buy yours while you still can!

I'll take your bet, in less than 6 months, an assault weapons ban will become law. That's just the first step. But I'll bet you think an assault weapons ban is a good thing!

Plenty of us have a great understanding of history. As in the history of marxist takeovers of free people that trample on their rights. Obama is best friends with a man that advocates the extermination of 25 million conservatives for their views. They may get me, but I’ll take a few of them down with me.

It may not be paranoia. Chuck Schumer wants to bring back the “fairness doctrine” to shut down talk radio(as in shutting up Rush, Hannity, O’Reilly, Savage, etc.) and he’s also a gun grabber.

With the Dems in control of the White House, the Senate and House, there’s nothing to stop them from going through with it in the next 4 years.

My husband already had some guns and I’ve not been comfortable with them BUT last week, I had him take me to the gun range and I fired my first shots ever. He is retired military and was very impressed with my ability to hit the dead center crosshair several times and keep my shots on the silhouette rings. Needless to say, I now own a Smith & Wesson .357.

In Florida sales have been humming for weeks. My last gun purchase was 40 years ago but since October 1st I’ve picked up an AR; Mossberg Pump 12 gauge and a Glock 17. Also got a bunch of extra mags for the Glock and the AR and about 2000 rounds of ammo.

My last visit to the gun store on October 30th found a line out the door (it is a small place) and they were buying anything and everything they could get.

Well I’ll tell you what. If “Obama” (the government) were to come for your guns or whatever else, I’ll put my money on the military or cops or whatever — even if you happen to have a spare tank, bazooka, RPG etc. Your resistance would be short and end very badly for you and your family.

However, since it won’t ever actually come to that, this is all fantasy.

buy ammo, not guns.

they will not take guns from you due to second amemdment, but ammo they can tax to the hilt, and accomplish the same purpose.

time to get another few cases......

My order shipped yesterday...

BTW....as soon as you order from JG Sales, Sirius Satelite Radio is selling for $0.30 a share....

I bought more shares this morining. It may be the only "fairness doctrine free" radio in the near future.

To the above group most qualified to answer this: PING!

Hey, neighbor? I don't think the sheepdogs are asking the sheep to fend off an army of wolves. I humbly think the wolves will be too busy trying to take out sheepdogs, first. If the term sheepdog confuses you, look at this: SHEEPDOG and I think you'll understand.

I’m sending the wife to a nearby on line ammo store in person. I have lots of .223, but need more 7.62x54R, 7.62x39R, .308/7.62x51N and some 9x19mm and 9x18mm.

Most of my x39 and x54 is steel case and not reloadable...

You’re set on going out in a blaze of glory? Good luck with that, all you cowboys. After the Clinton precedent, I expect it’ll be just a blaze.
Me, I’ll be doing something constructive, intensive, and utterly without sparklers.
By the way, when they come for your wealth, do you resist? And if you can’t fight the IRS, how will you stand up to the ATF?
I understand we’re all sour and inclined to pissyfits today, but let’s keep it real. Buying more guns is just a feelgood.
And btw, this isn’t 1776. More’s the pity.

So you will collaborate with those who seek to destroy our way of life. I may be one, but I am not alone. The Second Admendment is there to prevent power crazed leaders from removing the rest of our rights. You would have probably approved of the removal of individual’s firearms post-Katrina. No, it is not 1775 (check your history), but if push comes to shove, I will be ready.

Nowhere did I write that, and if your skills are so poor that you infer it, you need to work on your skills. Learn first, not to commit friendly fire, even on a keyboard.

Although I agree, I was very disappointed to see LE (from places better trained than N.O.P.D.) confiscating guns post-Katrina. I would like to have seen someone stand up and say “I took an oath to uphold the Constitution and will not violate that oath by following this illegal order.” Of course, maybe that did occur in some instances that we just didn’t hear about.

Steel is reloadable, but less than ideal. The Berdan priming is more problematic.

Personally, I think that if it ever came to this, “we the people” would go on the offensive and catch the gestapo with their pants down. Don’t give them the opportunity to mobilize. I am not gonna wait around for them to trap my family and me in our home. I’ll take the fight to them first and keep my family out of harms way, at least for a while.
