The fear on the street is palpable.
Ever since the election of Barack Obama as President of these United States in November 2008, coupled with the election of a democrat party majority in both the U.S. House and Senate, concern for the United States and personal safety has ignited like a fire in dry grass. Sales of guns black guns, rifles, shotguns and handguns (particularly 9mm) everywhere, have gone through the roof.
AR15s have literally flown off of dealer shelves, and only now in the spring of 2009, have I seen the display samples of ARs begin to reappear on the wall of my favorite shooting emporium after the initial post election rush.
What is odd about this new fear is that it is not coming from the average citizen gun owner out there, but it is coming from what to me is an almost shocking source: street cops. Street cops and SWAT cops that I know from various agencies rural, suburban and metro in my area are scared.
You'll find out what they are when you hear what this 29 year law enforcement veteran, deputy sheriff, and precision marksman has to say -- it's shocking... and alarming.

What is a “black gun”?
Literally? Just sprouted wings, twittered a few times, and fluttered out the door?
Military/police tactical models. AR15s, AK47s prime examples.
There....fixed it for you ;)
damn...link banned at work....give me the jist of it will ya?
From this, I take it that at this time, the “four reasons” are not to be stated?
1. Hordes of un-employed middle class white folks breaking into homes and stealing stuff to pawn to keep their kids in Abercrombie and Fitch clothing.
2. Luxury deprived bond-daddies breaking into homes and stealing whiskey, alcohol, and prescription drugs.
3. Lecherous republican leaders, who now bereft of power want to break in and steal our women folk.
4. Caffeine addicted Starbucks drinkers who now have to steal to support their habit.
parsy, who is holed up and waiting for them
Isn’t it annoying how people misuse the word “literal” to mean its exact opposite?
EBR. Evil Black Rifle. Usually denotes a semi-auto in Battle Rifle configuration/caliber.
My M-1 Garand is not Black, it is kind of a nice Walnut color.
My thoughts exactly...what is a “black gun”?
9mm = WIMP .45 ACP ONLY!
Black finish - no glare.
Golly I sure hope all those LEO friends of his remember to fill out all the ATF paperwork, get their Chief to sign off on the forms, wait a year for their fingerprints to get processed, and pay the $500.00 per weapon tax just like the rest of us serfs have to.
Oh, I forgot. They're cops. So they don't have to obey all those pesky laws they quite happily use to slam ordinary citizens into prison for.
It also occurs to me that if the author of this piece is indeed an LEO, he's just admitted that he has knowledge of a criminal conspiracy to violate Federal Firearms laws thus becoming an accessory before the fact.
I sure hope this putz gets a little visit from the ATF...
That’s a problem when telling people of the dangers of UN Treaties (UN Rights of the Child) that have the force of law.
“I’m not afraid of any UN guys. Tell ‘em to come and get some.”
It won’t be that way. It’ll be a busybody social worker accompanied by the local sheriff/deputy whose kid plays in little league with your kid.
You gonna shoot ‘em?
No way....10mm to reach the fence.
As for the third, I was at the Dayton, Ohio Tea Party on July 3. One speaker read the beginning paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence. The BIG applause line was "That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, " with the most cheering for "abolish". It was certainly eye opening when a gathering of largely middle aged suburban people are cheering the idea of abolishing the current government.
There was a cop the other day that said if he saw a fellow cop stealing money from a perp that he’d take him aside and have a talk with him.
Another poster asked him if he saw a civilian stealing money from another civilian, would he just take him aside and have a talk with him.
I’ve been posting that section of the Declaration frequently as a reminder.
I also post the sentence before it - that men will tolerate injustice while it is deemed tolerable. That’s where we are now.
I have to give this author credit, if those are “the four”. Most authors pussyfoot around 1 & 3.
I think he was referring to black powder guns.
1. The Marxist meat puppet who calls himself ‘President’
2. The Senate
4. Islamic Jihad
bump for later
Modern ones tend to be black.
Ah, the limits of slang.
If they’re coming to take my kids, I’m with you.
That’s a line in the sand.
9MM is the standard handgun caliber for our military forces.
My thoughts exactly...what is a black gun?
An assault rifle, I suppose. Contrary to the evil, menacing, deadlier than deadly image given it by the left, all it really is...a gun, usually black.
More hype and paranoia. Just because one sector of the economy is booming.
There is nothing unusual at all about the sharp increases in firearm and ammo sales. Absolutely nothing unusual at all.
People always increase their commodities and defensive stores when they are facing an extremely high probability of unprecedented combinations of civil war, world war, massive increases in crime, anarchy in the streets, and ordinary Class-A mayhem.
Only hits count.
What’s a “black gun”?
Better to have a weapon in a caliber of the most easily found ammunition...
Or, if you're NOT a liberal, it's a generic term for a military style rifle that typically shoots a small caliber center fire rifle round. They are often black in color due to anodizing / phosphate coating / paint, to minimize the amount of maintenance required to them.
These purchasers werent spending this kind of money just to turn in the guns for no compensation when a government tells them to. I foresee much civil disobedience coming down the road.
Ya Got that right!!
Do they really think that we're all going to just give up private property life saving private property?
And about a million variants.
“Four Reasons Why Gun Sales Are Up”
Another one. It’s called self defense.
I prefer the term “Patrol Rifle”
We have a winner!
I think anything that shoots .308 Win/7.62 NATO is a better choice for patriot riflemen, in case you ever really need to reach out and touch someone.
We have a winner!
6 hits with a nine are better than six misses with a .45.
Do you want to start a thread about a SEAL and his .45? The story sounds impossible and that’s why the guy never received the Medal of Honor. I’ll freepmail you the link.
The .45 vs the 9MM are fun as long as we keep it fun.
