FYI: During the Gulf war, Alabama was #2 behind Texas in number of troops serving there.
Metro Houston, Texas has a larger population than the whole state of Alabama
I’m surprised Texas isn’t since they have like a billion residents.
Roll Tide, indeed.
(and for our friends at that other school, War Damn Eagle!)
Mississippi #4 PING! :)
It’s not because of increased shootings.. It’s because of who the President is. Americans know what they know (As Al Gore would say. LOL).
Sweet Home Alabama....
Side arms of all kinds are being bid up pretty sharply. Kind of considering a high-velocity compound crossbow, myself. Light, near-silent, and over a short range, as accurate as a small pistol.
Plus, if the spent ammunition is retrieved, it is almost immediately reusable.
1, unlicensed gun sellers = private citizens legally selling their private property to other citizens who want to use them for legal personal reasons
2, criminal gun sellers = criminals selling stolen guns to other criminals (most of whom are felons), who want to use them for criminal reasons
It is the first category, above, which is the "gun show loophole" gun grabbers are so heated to close. The last category will remain open no matter what the laws says. In fact, our DOJ has already facilitated the sale of thousands of guns in that last category. It is known as "Fast and Furious" and is responsible for the deaths of at least hundreds if not thousands of people on both sides of our border.
Did this "journalist" ever take math? Alabama had the highest spike on a percentage increase basis while Texas had the largest spike in terms of numbers of applications. Not sure why they focused so much on Alabama given the huge increase in Texas
aol.com is controlled by the Alabama Media Group. They control the newspapers in Huntsville, Birmingham, and Mobile. In OCT 2012, they went to a 3-day week publication schedule. They are funneling folks to this web-site as part of their business model. As part of their cost-cutting measures, they have reduced the number of local/ state reporters. The editorial board in Birmingham has swung to the extreme far left in the last 3 years. They are carrying BHO's water big time on most every issue, especially gun control.
Yeah. We danged Alabamians are gun crazy nuts. I love it. I just sold a gun. Had tons of calls to purchase it. I actually would not sell it unless I saw ID, and if you had a weapons carry permit. I am not going to sell some gang banger a weapon. I sold it too a guy who asked me to do a back ground check on him if I wanted too. My cousin is sheriff and it would be easy to do so. He had no problem with me making a copy of his drivers licenses for my records. Folks around here are honest. We take care of each other. We watch out for our neighbor’s house when they are gone. Local gun shop hardly has any guns or ammo. They have had a massive run on all of it.
It would be interesting to know the volume of ammo sales. I heard on the radio that Vt. had a 60% increase in gun sales for this time period. That’s quite an increase considering the fact that private sales are common.
I’ve made my contribution; 5 new guns since the election. I bought a Sig P250 (because I didn’t have a 9mm), a Barretta Neos (because I didn’t have a .22 pistol), and another 870 (just because) the day after the election. I bought my son a Savage Model 11 for his Christmas present, and a Mossberg 715T (because they happened to have one at Walmart when I went to check ammunition stocks last Sunday).
Roll Tide indeed! It’s time to put the capital back in Alabama.
Message to Zer0 and your henchmen.
Your on notice.
I helped the Tennessee stats ... bought pistols as Christmas presents this year: 2 - M57 Yugo Tokarevs; 1 - CZ82; 1 - New Beretta 8045; 2 - 32acp Bersa Thunders; 1 - Bersa UC 9mm Pro. Happiness is a warm gun dontchaknow! It was a happy holiday.
Why, I do believe those old boys intend to be a .... problem for Barky Boy when he declares his Dictatorship of the Proletariat!
