FORT WORTH, Texas — Gun sales are booming across Texas, and some buyers say their growing belief that President Barack Obama will inevitably be re-elected is fueling their race to bear more arms.

And sales haven't just risen in Texas. There's been a rush nationwide, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram ( http://bit.ly/y3YDO6) reported in Sunday's edition.

The Cheaper than Dirt gun store in Fort Worth set a sales record for February, said store owner DeWayne Irwin, who described the rush as similar to one seen shortly after Obama's 2008 election.

"We're at the top of the roller coaster, and we're about to plummet down the side," Irwin told the Star-Telegram. "It's fixing to happen again. I don't know if it will be to the same extent it was before, but I see it coming."

A number of years ago, we had a consultant come help us in San Antonio. He was from CA, San Diego area, and had lots of ARs. Another shooter and I took him out to the local range. The owner, a retired Marine, was working the counter. Upon finding our guest was from CA, he said:

"You folks should vote with a rope".

Agreed. Plus his economy is just as bad as Carter’s, if not worse. It’s just not being reported as such.

We all know what happened to Jimmah.
