The American people are on a gun buying binge, but all we hear is the elite chattering class trying to set the national perception.

Yet is said that the 2nd Amendment follows hard upon the 1st so as to serve as its bodyguard -- providing the added incentive of coercive force by a wary citizenry to guarantee that those initial cherished liberties, expounded by our Founders, did not go the way of the 10th Amendment.

Put another way, you don't really have a First Amendment if you have to live in fear of mob violence if what you say annoys people. In such a case, if the government sides with the annoyed people and withholds effective police protection, then the unarmed person has a problem.

I think the big eared kenyan has kicked a hornets nest and doesn’t even know it yet.

I visited a huge gun store in my southwestern city today. First time for me since the Sandy Hook murders were exploited by the blood dancers.

I was shocked like never before. It was utterly different than the Clinton assault rifle ban days. The store looked like a swarm of locusts had come through. Only a few tired 50 year old sporters, antiques, and a few revolvers were left. NO magazines of any kind, and ammo was almost gone. They were rationing out ammo a box at a time to buyers so everyone coud get a few of the remaining rounds.

Rattled, i went to another store just to see how bad it was. They also have an indoor range. It was the same story, only worse. All the rifles and pistols were gone. All the ammo was gone. The range was filled on all lanes, and 6 parties were waiting in line for their turn.

Everyone was a little pissed off. Polite to each other, with grim nods to strangers to say hi, holding doors for someone carrying something, etc. But there was a perceptable and unmistakable anger in the air.
People aren’t plunking down hard earned money for something they intend to turn in a month or two from now. Something feels different. Defiance is floating around.

People are flat pissed off. The politicians had better take fair warning, apologize and never go this route again. I think any moves to register or confiscate or interfere with private sales will likely be met by violence. Just a feeling i get. I defy anyone to belly up to a gun counter and listen for 5 minutes and see if you don’t get the same vibe.

This is bad bad bad,,, Obama has gone too far.

I have my late father’s off-duty pistol which is a Colt 38. My daughter keeps it with her at college for protection. She is a pretty good shot with it.

I just bought another Colt 38 at a gun show. It is almost identical to my father’s 38.

I went by the gun counter on my local Wally World today.

The gun rack was partially empty, with only a few hunting shotguns, a couple of bolt action rifles, and several .22 rifles in stock. A grim looking customer was carefully filling out the required paperwork to buy at least one of the remaining and there were three other customers quietly waiting in line for their turn.

The ammo was almost completely cleaned out. There were 8 or 10 boxes of 30-06, a half dozen of .308, a single box of .44 magnum, and little else except a few scattered boxes of odd calibers. No .22 of any amount. Shotgun ammo was gone except for about a dozen boxes of small birdshot.

Basically, the place was almost cleaned out to the bare walls. I have never seen the inventory this low and I go by regularly.

At what point in our history was it made illegal for an individual to own artillery? It had to be legal at some point
