US guns sales soar after Barack Obama's re-election

#1
"Owners of guns have been stocking up because they are concerned about a potential tightening of regulations on assault weapons in the president's second term.
In October the number of background checks on people applying to buy guns, an indicator of future sales, increased by 18.4 per cent.

There was a similar jump when President Obama was first elected in 2008. A total of 12.7 million background checks were carried out that year, up from 11.2 million the year before, and the number has been rising since then."

Thass the spirit - proactive and uncompromising. Rights and freedoms don't defend themselves.

Hahaha.
Obama isnt going to touch that with a barge pole given real issues and the silly version of what passesfor the assualt rifle ban.
Its simply not worth the hassle to take the guns away.

Not when the UN is coming to do it :)

Hardly surprising, however I do wonder just who put it about that Obama is not gun friendly? A little voice inside me says gun trade. Surely not, honi soit qui mal y pense.

Obama probably isnt a big fan of guns and would really like to cut the number of guns that are killing people in urban areas.

But given the way the US behaves he's not touching it with a barge pole.

Over in Oregon, my cousin - a democrat [!] - has just spent a good slice of his 401 on updating his stockpile of 5.56, 7.62NATO, 7.62x39, 7.62Russian, .40cal and 12 gauge. After our last visit we were down to less than five thousand of a couple of them, and we really don't like the feeling of running out any time soon.

Got a couple more truck guns, too - one 12g and a Saiga.

You can really never have too many truck guns, y'know.

Hardly gun control, if I got this right most States let you have guns that go bang--bang--bang not rat-ta-tat 'cept in certain States where you can own Boom Bang Thump?

US gun control measures make ares look sane in comparison.
The feared assualt rifle ban was not a ban on semi automatic rifles with magazines above a certain amount, which however way you look at it would at least be understanable.

But a ban on weapons with certain features too many and it was scary and evil so banned folding stock fine folding stock with a bayonet lug evil ban. Flash hider evil ban. Muzzle break fine ( diffence depends on what the manufacterer calls it?.)

His Attorney General has been very vocal (at least before taking that position) against firearms ([video=youtube;GNE5vuI9TNo]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNE5vuI9TNo[/video] ) and I would not be at all surprised that the real reason for Fast and Furious turns out to be a botched "false flag" op.

As for Him, as do most politicians, He speaks from both sides of his mouth--he usually leads off with a vague acknowledgement of the 2d Amendment that invariably is followed by a "but" that effectively guts the individual right to carry arms expressly provided in that Amendment. See for example the video in the next post:

IIRC (it surprised me), at the start of his presidency, a black man turned up at a right wing political rally of some sort with an assault rifle.
It was a tea party rally of conservatives (I find the phrase "right wing" pejorative) and the main stream media conveniently cropped the photo to show only the rifle to reinforce the stereotype that conservatives are violent racists.

Who could possibly think that a black American politician might be prejudiced against tooled-up rednecks?
Yup because Obviously blacks in the USA don't own guns. Its why you walk can through Cabrini Green and not worry.

During the debate he did say he want to reinstate the AWB. His problem currently is the Senate is willing, but the GOP Congress is not going to do it without the usual Chicago thuggery. He will say the Congress is holding Americans "Hostage". He will appoint SCOTUS judges who are against the 2nd Amendment as an individual right. He cannot ban them by Executive order, but expect ATF to increase Inspections of FFL's to the point of harassment to lower the numbers of licensed dealers (as as done under Clinton).

Unfortunately it will interfere with several projects I have ongoing

FN-FAL build
AR-15 retro (M16A1) build
Rebarrel of a S.A. Garand
Winchester 94 Trapper Carbine Large Loop restoration

The NRA (National Rifle Association) and the "Tea-Party" Republicans have since last October presented the argument that President Obama would, given a second term, ban all guns. This statement contravenes the known facts that durring his first term he only signed "pro-gun" legislation. The entire political process was marked by outrageous and false claims by the Republican party, in fact Mitt Romneys' campaign manager stated "We are not going to let this campaign be swayed by fact-checkers." There is an unfortunately a large contingent of conservative Americans who are racist and stupid (never a good mix). This has been exploited by a large group of people seeking to cash in on both aspects of their personality.

Well the 'American Dream' has been well and truly killed off for a lot of Septics by the behaviour of the banks and thr rigging of big business so now they dream of coming out on top after some kind of tinfoil conspiracy zombie style armageddon.

Again hard to ignore during the Debates Obama did say he wanted to reinstate the AWB.
