Soap Box, Ballot Box, Jury Box...

Three out of five boxes have been exhausted.

People are Buying Guns and Ammunition for a Reason

More importantly, the leftists are obsessive about "gun control" for a reason, and it ain't a good one.

“You are your family’s protector. What should you do?”

Um - dial “911” and wait 20 or 30 minutes for the police to come? (so they can draw chalk-lines around my dead body)

or -

Grab my 12-gauge and light and head on down the hall....

Home invasions are one reason but I think the biggest reason is that people anticipate that they are going to have to protect themselves from the government large hordes of city dwellers looking for food, water, etc.

I have my guns because of the communists takeover of America. Locked and loaded.

If you are like most Americans, there is not much that you can do except pray that the intruder won't come upstairs.

During the entire 60 plus year history of TV, the weapon that all fathers grab, is a golf club.

It’s 2:00AM.I hear glass break followed by blood curdling screams as our German Shepherds swarm the intruder.Do I go downstairs and break up their party or just let them have their fun?

The president and most of our elected officials are protected by people with guns, as are celebrities and athletes. We protect our money and property with armed people, and we see armed guards in hospitals, casinos and airports. The school attended by Obama’s daughters has 11 armed guards. Why do the Democrats insist that we turn our schools, where are most precious possessions are, into ideological battlegrounds where the Democrats arguments are purchased with the blood of innocents? The high schools where I live all have sworn officers assigned to them o a permanent basis, and the only shooting in 30 years occurred when the police shot a mentally disturbed student who showed up with a pistol and threatened a mass shooting.

The bullets in the first magazine or for intruders, the next 500 to 1,000 rounds I have for every gun in my house are for when the SHTF or
for when someone comes to try and take them away from me.

In 2011, only 47% of Americans had a gun in their home or on their property. Republicans were more likely to own a gun than Democrats, but between 2009 and 2011, gun ownership among Democrats increased by 33% compared to less than 4% for Republicans. Obviously, people who call themselves "Democrats" are beginning to realize that something isn't right.

Obviously the old saw about we "being the ones with all the guns" is no longer true (if it ever was).

A small anecdote: I went on line a little while ago to shop on the Cheaperthandirt.com website, for which my lovely wife had given me a very generous gift card for Christmas (she knows me well).

I was interested in buying a few more AR-15 30-round magazines.

Good luck: completely sold out. Every make. Every model. Every manufacturer.

At least some Americans are awake.

We routinely attend public meetings where armed CA Dept. of Fish and Game wardens line the back walls. We have had local farmers and ranchers visited by agents in full flack jackets to inquire about their water diversions. This is the message of intimidation our government is sending us. Perhaps our Founders were smarter than we give them credit for.

...and it’s not to turn them in for any new law, buyback program, or confiscation.

Heard a thump and a tumble in the middle of the night, with just the wife & I home.

She was surprised how quickly I was up and armed, headed out the bedroom door.

It was only box, that had been poorly balanced, sliding off of the couch, to the floor.

Good practice, no harm, and the wife knows I won’t be fumbling for the phone, when danger calls.

Well, let’s see.
Our acting president and his party are actively wrecking the economy creating more and more dependants.
At some point the checks will stop and/or prices will skyrocket. They have armed up paramilitary drug gangs along our southern border. And now they are using the Connecticut shooting as an excuse to make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to purchase weapons to defend themselves. Bet they start talking about national gun registration soon. If they haven’t already.
