    Obastard is a crappy president but he's not stupid and he knows what happened in 1994 after the dems and some stupid republicans went along with clinton's gun ban and he knows that Al Gore going from an NRA A rated senator to an F rated candidate cost al Gore his own home state and the election

    Yep. Gun sales always go up when a card carrying communist like Obama gets elected.

    I have an account with Aimsurplus.com and we make monthly buys from this major league ammo dealer. I went up there to pick up an order of Russian 762X39 ammo the day after the election and the manager told me that November 2008 (a few days into the month) had already been better than the entire 2007 calendar year.

    outside the warehouse was 40 pallets of such ammo-all sold within an hour of it arriving.

    Yeah, your point was so subtle that it eluded me completely.

    I guess this is another liberal plot. Obama's been lulling the country to sleep by doing nothing but expanding gun owners' rights for three years, just waiting for his opportunity to strike! But the wingnuterati are not fooled!! Go now! Stockpile your ammunition before it's too late!

    Have you ever thought maybe Santa tends to get handsy with the wives of the world so some form of "deterrence" is needed?

    Take it easy bro, it was a joke.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    So, here we go...This is what Obama's administration/Presidency has wrought....Insecurity high enough that people are increasing their gun purchasing in record numbers....Great success I say....

    No, this isn't what Obama's Presidency has wrought. This is what happens when ignorant people believe Obama is going to somehow take away guns.

    Kudos for the increase in sales, which helps the gun sellers, but still ignorant nonetheless.

    And used guns are cheap right now, due to the economy. No, head in the sand. I just don't think we should get riled up about it, Turtle.

    So people exercising their rights are ignorant? Tell that to OWS.
