In the meantime, there is nothing to prevent people from legally stocking up on guns and ammunition.
Barack Obamas gun control policy, or should I write anti-gun record is long and informative:
* 1994 to 2001 - Obama was on the board of the anti-gun Joyce Foundation. This foundation is the largest funding source for radical anti-gun groups in the country.
* 1996 - Obama supported a ban on the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.
* 1999 - Obama proposed a 500 percent increase in the excise taxes on firearms and ammunition. This tax would effectively punish gun owners for buying guns and ammunition.
* 2003 - Obama voted in support of legislation that would have banned privately owned hunting shotguns, target rifles and black powder rifles in Illinois.
* 2004 - Obama voted against legislation intended to protect homeowners from prosecution in cases where they used a firearm to halt a home invasion.
I do not see the reason for the barf alert. It seems a fairly descriptive bit of reporting.
“In the meantime, there is nothing to prevent people from legally stocking up on guns and ammunition.”
Oh, don’t be surprised when it becomes illegal to “stockpile” guns and ammunition. Police agencies have already used the “stockpile” excuse to confiscate weapons while they sort out the details of if the “cache” of weapons is legal. Funny, that sort of reasoning would be appalling to liberals if it was applied to some cause they support. How about we seize “ACORN” and then sort out if they are up to no good?
But there are plenty of proponents of gun ownership to challenge and argue against such regulations.
The Second Amendment still gives Americans the right to keep and bear arms. Gun ownership and possession are legal in this country.
People use them for hunting, for target shooting, for collections, for protection.
Sadly, some people use them in robberies and murders. But such people are breaking our laws when they do so. Such are not the actions of responsible gun owners. And no law can totally prevent such actions.
I have to say: it's actually nice to see some balance (for a change) in an article about gun ownership.
Peloser said no to a renewal of the AW ban, and 65 Democrats on Friday told the Bambi administration(isn’t that an appropriate name?) no more gun laws. I wonder how many blue dogs signed on.
I doubt the donks want to replay 1994.
Possibly one that may save their lives.
What usually happens during economic down turns?
Having a home protection firearm always makes sense. But it is a necessity in times like these.
I’m in Texas. Based on what is happening in Mexico, and of course here in Washington, there are plenty of reasons to be prepared.
Saw a sign out front of a gun shop the other day, one of those real upscale signs with some really good graphics. One of the "statements' on it this past week.
“Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence used words like “lunacy” to describe people who are buying guns”
...if owning a gun is “lunacy”, I’m proud to say that I’m a card carrying “lunatic” times 5! 6 if you include the 38 I’m getting for my wife!!
I think most people are stocking up because they are afraid they will need something to put down the commies.
Other than empty shelves and "out of stock" indications on ammunition websites. Even steel cased Wolf and other Ruski brands.
At least this is one sector of the economy Obama has had a positive impact on. Remington employees are probably getting big time bonuses this year. Good for them.
The sad thing is we are doing this because we fear our government. When citizens have this much fear of their government the eventual results are foreseeable. People are doing what any sane person would do when face with tyranny, prepare to defend themselves and their loved ones.
Lead, brass, aluminum and steel, especially when properly processed, are great investments. Their value should keep up nicely with the hyperinflation that the Messiah is bringing.
The Second Amendment still gives Americans the right to keep and bear arms.
Does no such thing. It protect that right, it doesn't give it. Repealing the second amendment wouldn't take it away either...but would have "Unintended Consequences", interesting ones.
Gun ownership and possession are legal in this country.
Well, for my wife it was a .38 Special revolver. For my son, an AK. For my daughter a .22 semi-auto rifle with scope.
Mr. Hamm you need not worry about the choices I make for my family. I'm far more capable of that than you are.
By the way, I'm not an "extremist" .... yet.
That is because there is no middle ground. There is the second amendment. Anything else is fascist spin.
How many violent criminals were without guns last year thanks to gun control laws......ZERO.
My local Wal Mart is out of 38 and 22 ammo, no idea of when more is coming. My local gun shop has both in limited supply and getting more costly.
According to the liberals, the idiots that they are, all this gun buying should result in an equal increase in gun crime. Gosh, what if it doesn’t??
Any update on the re-introduction of the Ammunition Accountability Act in our fair Commonwealth?
