LIBERAL NIGHTMARE: Just One Week After Orlando Massacre, Online Gun Store Sells 30,000 AR-15s
The Democrat Party, Liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) have all gone out of their way to warp the story of the ISIS-linked terror attack on an Orlando gay nightclub in order to turn it into just another left-wing, agenda-driven means to attack conservatives, the U.S. Constitution and guns. But in the aftermath of the shooting something has happened that will make the liberals furious.
First of all, and contrary to what the media is saying, the Muslim-driven murderer did not use a dreaded AR-15 rifle in the shooting. Further it was not a “machine gun,” nor a “weapon of war,” nor an “automatic weapon.”
What the killer did use was a semi-auto Sig Sauer MCX rifle.
Now, with that settled, what happened to gun sales in the aftermath of the murderous rampage will have liberals at their wits end.
We go to Fox News for that story…
Since the Orlando shooting, AR-15’s have been a popular selling item in many gun stores across the country.
An AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle that was made in 1959 by the Armalite Company.
Hunter’s Warehouse Owner Tom Engle told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney, his online operation consisting of 300,000 to 400,000 weapons has sold 30,000 AR-15’s since Sunday.
Mr. Engle went on to tell Fox that AR-15s are priced between $350 and $8,000 depending on the caliber and other issues.
And people are buying at this high rate because they are afraid of the U.S. government and Barack Obama, not because they fear terrorists. Most are buying in fear that the rifle will be attacked by our own government and banned or further restricted and placed outside the regular citizen’s ability to own.
So, yes, Obama is the reason for this boom in gun sales, not terrorists.
