Mr. Obama told a campaign audience in Ohio in October: "I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won't take your handgun away."

"I will not take your shotgun away LIAR!

I will not take your rifle away LIAR!

I won't take your handgun away LIAR!

Why wouldn't they be? Oboma wants to start his own civilian army.

I din’t buy a rifle because I’m afraid Obama will outlaw guns. I bought one for my own protection from the mobs running through neighborhoods looking for food! And that’s probably the reason most are buying weapons. Think about it, why a run on gun stores if you already own guns? I think most of the buyers are first time buyers like me.

Computers have caused that.

Spell check should take care of it, but on the screen is not link on paper.

They can get the ones done on a Form 4473 ---they don't know about the ones not bought under one. Additionally, the 'forms' aren't sent to ATF, they have the right to inspect as part of a criminal investigation, but currently don't have a wholesale right to the data.

Of course, this could all change at the drop of a liberal puke congress hat (small c now - it isn't worth capitalizing).

I've often wondered, if in the case of true attempted confiscation of all guns, whether dealers would toe the line and not 'lose' their books.

You bought a gun from the mobs?

Here, there was a huge turnout for a sale on Ar-15s and others, but I don't really see the regular-priced stuff moving all that quickly.

The BATF, Civilian Control Corp., or whatever other unConstitutional mob is sent to confiscate or enforce anti-2nd amendment policies by this illegitimate coup are going to be walking right into a chain saw.

My husband and I have a home-based FFL (see signature). Our first panic buyer called three minutes into McCain’s concession speech, and the phone hasn’t stopped ringing since. We’ve done more business since the election than in the prior six months.

A LOT of gun owners are buying more guns.

Many of us are purchasing certain types of weapons which we have been meaning to get around to getting since the last “assault weapons” ban went away, but which will be unavailable after the new “assualt weapons” ban goes into effect in the next year or so.

Hubby went downtown yesterday to the pistol bureau to add his latest acquisition. He has had a concealed carry permit since 1986. Or so he thought.
Clerk told him the judge who issued it has retired and he no longer has a CC permit.
He was given a 4 page questionnaire to fill out to possibly get it restored.

I’m not a gun savvy person but I think if one wants to get guns badly enough, one can find a reason for it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see an attempt to require everyone to disclose possession of guns and then use that requirement to justify a search if they suspect guns were not reported. I know that seems far-fetched but too many people seem to believe whatever the nice government tells them to believe. The Second Amendment has been trashed for decades now and a lot of people now believe it protects only state militias rather than individual rights.

I would hope the dealers would “lose” the records. Perhaps a little selective fire or flood damage?

I note the following. Obama says: "I won't"

He means it. He won't be the one doing it. His minions will. At least, they'll try.

I'm about to buy the Springfield Armory XD 45 ACP and a tactical shotgun (yet to be determined, Winchester Defender perhaps?). I probably wouldn't be shelling out for new weapons right now had Obama not been elected.

Any truth to the rumor that he's going to push for ammo that becomes inert in just a few years to prevent stockpiling?

I didn’t type “I bought one from the mobs for my own protection”. I typed “I bought one for my own protection from the mobs.” See the difference? If I’m incorrect, write it the correct way.

Join the NRA.

I signed up both myself and my fiancee in the past couple of days.

The NRA will need all of the support they can get to fight off the coming laws.

Did one of the commenters (”Johnathan L. Abbinett”) in the linked article admit that he: (1) volunteered for Obama; (2) voted for Obama; yet (3) is stocking up on assault-style weaponry? W-T-F?

Not only that, but he says: “We know the radical, left-wing, looney tunes don’t get...What these people do not understand is that many politicians prefer unarmed peasants!”

AND HE VOTED FOR OBAMA?!

Some people need to get hit upside the head with the “clue bat”.

Sheesh....

Folks, buying guns and ammo is not enough!

We have got to organize into a group, that group with the strongest voice is the NRA. You might say,” I’m already a member”. Then I ask you is your wife? husband? grown children? parents?

Take the money that you would spend on ammo, one box would buy a membership for someone. There is power in numbers.

I didn't say "casualties," I said "attrition." They can take it as they will. More than likely, they'll quit rather than try. Going after one or two folks is easy, going after millions is a little more difficult.

Gentlemen:

On Nov. 4, 2008 we witnessed a Communist takeover of the U.S. government.

If BO and his minions are installed in January, there will be a conflict.

I am not hopeful that the citizenship issue will prevent him from being sworn in, although I now believe that he does not qualify for the office according to the Constitution.

It is likely he registered at both Occidental and Columbia University as a foreign exchange student, and that he traveled to Pakistan under a foreign passport in his youth.

It may not be in January, or February, or March. But there will be a conflict. When some of the folks who voted for him, but lost their jobs due to the downturn he has made worse realize what he has done to US and Them,we may have some more supporters.

We could be witnessing the end of Capitalism as we have known it. But worse than that, unless this is checked, we could be witnessing the last Free Society (Free Republic).

It become clearer every day that the Left in the West, some portion of the Jewish population (who think they can make a deal with our enemies), the Communist East, and the Muzzies are aligning against the Christians in the West. They are coming after us, and a few guns will not stop this.

They are like cockroaches and cannot stand the light of day called the truth. They can exist only in societies where free discourse is not allowed.

‘They’ will consider unwarranted ‘searches’ more carefully when old farts like me start giving them the stuff [those things that go inside the items they want to ‘recover’] they’re looking for one at a time. (It’s cryptic, I know, but there’s so much traffic now, they have to search for certain words/phrases)
