It seems fair to say that any American citizen who cherishes the Second Amendment cannot and should not reelect Barack Obama later this year. Since entering public life, as his record demonstrates, the president has repeatedly and unequivocally supported controversial legislation as a way to limit the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. In his most recent book, for example, then-Senator Obama even asserted that keeping guns out of inner cities was a moral responsibility. Paradoxically, however, his efforts to undermine the Second Amendment and impose more stringent gun control laws are prompting U.S. citizens everywhere to purchase firearms. And according to Ammo.net, American firearms sales and concealed handgun permit applications this year have reached an all-time high since 2008.
And yet, despite the fact the firearms industry is ushering in an era of unprecedented prosperity, the National Rifle Association (NRA) is determined to derail President Obamas reelection campaign. At CPAC earlier this month, the CEO of the NRA Wayne LaPierre had this to say about the current occupant of the White House.
"Lip service to gun owners is just part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment during his second term. We see the president's strategy crystal clear: Get re-elected and, with no more elections to worry about, get busy dismantling and destroying our firearms' freedom, erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights and excise it from the U.S. Constitution...When the sun goes down on election day Barack Obama will have Americas gun owners to thank for his defeat.
I work in the industry, and we are going gangbusters.
That is VERY good to hear!!
...when a plan comes together...
Good. Shops, big and small, here and in Maine are going gangbusters too ...had to wait over an hour for FFL check to come back on Sat...so *they* must be swamped. Don’t forget, people are receiving their refund checks too. Good investments being made. Love the SBE.
Does a heart good.:)
I work for a small manufacturer, and we are backordered on some products until next fall.
I thought that business must be good, because the prices are up sharply from what I remember -- far more than simple inflation.
“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference. They deserve a place of honor with everything that is good.”
At Megasports the local superstore for guns in Plainfield, People’s Republic of Illinoistan and Monday it was packed, no parking spaces left packed, and when I went back Tuesday to pick up my Franchi O/U in 20G it was packed again. Let me tell you black rifles are moving off the shelf.
Thank you for your service to liberty! I hope they give you a nice pay raise!
That’s awesome! Best news I’ve heard in weeks!
