Skip to comments.America's coming gun war - Pat Buchanan: Most Americans understand the need for arms
Posted on 01/08/2013 4:39:08 AM PST by Perseverando
Eight days after the massacre of 20 first-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary, where each child was shot with a Bushmaster .223, The Nations Gun Show, the biggest east of the Mississippi, opened.
A line already snaked around the building shortly after the three-day event began at 3 p.m., and the parking lot was jammed at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va., wrote Justin Jouvenal of the Washington Post:
With an AK-47 slung over one shoulder, Marco Hernandez offered one word when asked why he was in the overflow crowd at the gun show.
Obama, he said. I wouldnt be here if it werent for the possible gun ban.
And this is the story across America since Sandy Hook.
The weapon most in demand at Chantilly?
The AR-15 black rifle, a version of which was used to slaughter the innocents in Newtown. At Chantilly, their price doubled in hours to $1,800. Gun stores have sold out their inventory.
Yet for weeks after Sandy Hook, journalists and politicians from the president to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who were making the case for a new assault-weapons ban, dominated the airwaves. Those calling for reinstatement of the ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004 had the national audience almost entirely to themselves.
The National Rifle Association was largely silent. Not until nine days after Newtown did the NRAs Wayne LaPierre appear on Meet the Press to be subjected to hostile interrogation.
Yet, from the record gun sales in December, and 2012 there were 16.8 million calls to the FBI for background checks for gun purchases last year the elites have lost the argument with the audience that counts. They have failed to convince those who buy guns.

pat buchanan is a moron....
". . . some key [events] exacerbated the national debate, fraying trust, and national cohesion just a little more each time . . . The two-party system that had governed America . . . began to fall apart . . . interest in politics took the place of all other forms of news-related entertainment . . . politicians were the celebrities . . . [Politics/ideology] was becoming such a habit, the reactions so automatic, that [journalists] taking sides on every news story became inevitable."
.. I just can't avoid thinking about this from for Love & Liberty by Robin Young and it's about 1857 America.
One-hundred-and-fifty years later the discord is
Governments have murdered 262 million of their own citizens since 1900.*
The overwhelming majority of those democides were perpetrated by Socialists/Communist governments.**
The first step in democide is always gun control.***
Ubama is a rigid Marxist ideologue who promised he would not take our guns before he promised he would.****

Pat Buchanan is quite fluent.
He has an unfortunate tendency toward tiny bits of racial animosity, which run through some of his writing. No more than that exhibited by his opponents and I am darn sick of him taking constant flack over it when those who oppose him are never called on it.
Buchanan is 100% right.
He needs exactly the same treatment as those who oppose him.
He is strongly opinionated and largely right.
.....And with it, a new revolt.
Sadly, we are much more divided then ever and there will come to a time of a “flashpoint”.
But he tells it just like it is.
Maybe, but to make that observation on this thread, where Buchanan is dead-on and accurate, is unfortunate.
I would like to disagree with you.
Unfortunately, that is not simple to do anymore.
No sorry I was less than clear.
I mean I agree with you.
Still do not want to, but increasingly it seems unavoidable.
This second civil war/revolt I have been predicting for years now.
