    Gun Sales Increase For Christmas

    This year, many are looking into a brand new rifle or pistol as their top choice for Christmas, and store owners said guns of all shapes and sizes have been flying off the shelves.Jake Terry sells guns at the Tackle Box in Fort Smith, and he said the month of December has been the hottest for all types of firearms."As far as Christmas sales, we've definitely noticed an increase," Terry said.According to FBI records, background checks for prospective gun buyers have gone up by 32 percent since last year's Black Friday shopping spree. Terry said the trend has been carried out mainly by first time buyers."Everybody seems to be just a little uncertain, and it's kind of better safe than sorry. They want to buy guns and ammunition, just in case," Terry said.


    I posted this in another thread, then thought it would do well to discuss this as a stand alone thread....

    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....

    I got my first .22 rifle as a supposed Christmas present, but I actually got it before Thanksgiving. It was a Remington Speedmaster that shoots 3 types of .22's, Shorts, Longs, and Long Rifle. I still have it, and other than some scratches, it shoots just as accuratly as the day my father gave it to me. I remember you coulld buy a gun quite easily, but you had to sign your name in a book if you bought ammo. That was back in about 1970. That is no longer a requirement. Glad they got rid of that stupid requirement.

    If that scumbag didn't think it would cost him house seats or the 2012 election he would if he could. His track record as a third rate state and federal senator was marked with an almost 100% consistent anti gun right record

    Yes, gun sales are up. Sales of everything else is up around Christmas too. Big deal!

    He thought better of it when he realized he'd be stepping on voters' toes, you know all those red neck Democrat farmers? They are Democrats because of all the freebie farm subsidies that the Democrat party hands out. They cling to their guns, religion, and farm subsidies so they always vote Democrat no matter what.

    Perhaps. Lacking your mind reading skills, however, I have to rely on the fact that, if he's done anything with respect to guns, it's been to expand gun owners' rights.

    You obviously miss the point in your weak assed attempt to be clever which failed miserably.

    The point is that the intent of the Obama administration is clear to actually restrict sales of guns, and interfere with the 2nd amendment right to own a firearm. People are buying now ahead of that possibility.

    We all know consumption is good for the economy. So yes, it's a success.

    However, we also known that homicides involving friends and relatives always spike around the holidays...hmmmm
    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.
