Defensive handgun sales began booming following Elliot Rodger's Santa Barbara attacks, and the boom continues as far away as Louisiana. 

Gun store owners in Louisiana cite Santa Barbara as the reason for the unprecedented sustained surge in handgun sales they've seen since May 23. And now "sales of compact pistols are growing at double the rate of handguns overall."

Defensive handguns as opposed to offensive handguns? How offensive can a handgun be?

Handguns that indescrimantly kill people of their own volition are pretty offensive. None of mine have ever done this.

Well, according to the gabbies, nannies, shannons, sarahbradys, maiggots, cphv and a host of other didiots, they are ALL offensive. :>}

Love it! LOL!

I’m so easily offended at this I might have to go out and purchase so I can be a perpetual state of rage like the collectivists!

I bet the NFL could make a few bucks licensing out the various franchises’ logos to a firearms maker!

Easily. Considering that Duck Commander managed to do it with Mossberg, I'm sure the NFL could get team-logo handguns to sell. If they really want them to sell, they'll say that visitors with CCWs are (finally) permitted to bring their handguns to NFL games, but only if they are official team-logo handguns.

Heck, I'd buy a decent-quality handgun with the Chicago Bears logo on it (assuming it doesn't cost as much as an NFL team!).

It’s a right-handed pistol.

I did it that way on purpose. That way, you can hold a mirror up to your monitor, look in the mirror, and the writing is normal again!
