Obama Is Still Good For Gun And Ammo Sales
Looks like lots of those Extreme Right Wing Extremists are a bit concerned about the Democrats in the halls of power taking away 2nd Amendment Rights. WRAL: Guns, ammo sales are on the rise
Some gun owners say a fear of tighter gun control has caused a recent surge of gun and ammunition sales.
“People have been stockpiling, buying it by the case instead of the box, so it’s not available,” gun owner Richard Poole said.
The demand for ammunition is so high that Mace Sports in Mebane (North Carolina) has 2 million rounds on back-order, store owners said. The store has limited the number of boxes of ammunition a person can buy based on caliber and supply.
Mace Sports reported a 100 percent increase in gun sales from this time last year.
There have been lots of first time gun buyers (I was one back in November), and people are very worried over the rumors of a 500% tax rate on ammunition. Good thing they haven’t seen the report that the military is now banned from selling expended brass to re-manufacturers, eh? And we are still waiting to see what happens with H.R. 45, which is still (fortunately) languishing in committee with no cosponsors.
Gun sales have been skyrocketing since the day after the election, and continue to go up. It’s no wonder that Obama was named Gun Salesman of the Year by The Outdoor Wire.
As a U.S. Senator, Obama voted to leave gunmakers and dealers open to lawsuits, and as an Illinois state legislator, he supported a ban on certain weapons and tighter restrictions on all firearms.
Quite frankly, I am shocked by that paragraph appearing in a story at a traditionally liberal news organization, as well as “While gun-rights supporters hold a narrow edge on the court, Obama could appoint justices who would swing it the other way.”
And if you want to know the real Obama on guns, not the left wing spin, go here.
In related news, I ran across a bill, H.R. 17, by Rep Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.) regarding: To protect the right to obtain firearms for security, and to use firearms in defense of self, family, or home, and to provide for the enforcement of such right. Disappointingly, only 15 Representatives (all Republicans) have signed on to protect the rights of people to protect themselves from crime with a gun.
And The Gun Toting Liberal points out that the 9th District Court in California has ruled that States and municipalities have no right to interfere with our 2nd Amendment Rights.
