    AR15's are the #1 selling disaster item in New Orleans!

    The Gun Shots: Hunting, Shooting, Politics, Entertainment, Guns, Rifles

    Guns and Gustav

    We just got a call from Devline Rossell, a charter captain based out of Venice, Louisiana. He was shopping in New Orleans to get some supplies before the arrival of Gustav (currently listed as a tropical storm that has left at least 22 dead in the Caribbean) and reported that the item most in demand was not food, clothing or shelter.

    “I just left a sporting goods store and you would think that the number-one selling item would be plywood or potable water or gasoline right now,” he said. “Apparently it is AR-15s and .223 ammo. I watched at least 20 people buy AR-15s and cases of .223.”

    Can’t say I’m surprised. After the nightmare that was Katrina I think it would be unwise for anyone to assume the state, local or federal government could guarantee his or her personal safety during a natural disaster. Of course, I think it is foolish to assume that under any circumstance.

    The AR buying spree demonstrates that people don’t think of it as an “assault weapon” but rather an arm that is ideally suited for self-defense, which it is. I also suspect that for some of the folks this is their first firearm. Goes to show that not only is there no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole but that there is no such thing as a gun-control advocate in one either.

    Nope. The idiots of N.O. apparently out number the decent folk there. The 4th and 5th generation welfare recipients that are too lazy to help themselves are the ones that elected him.

    The good people will suffer right along with the rest of them. I'll bet you a Coke that the people with the jobs and homes are the ones buying the AR's.They wont be so williing to roll over and play dead when the hurricane hits, the winds blow and the Mayor gets stupid.

    It aint the riff-raff that elected him buying the guns.

    I think, we need to take the AR15's out of the hands of the rich(those making over 45K) and redistribute them out so that all may be blessed.

    You and I both. I may end up selling my G35, along with some other items, and try to purchase one. I'm considering the ADS rifle.
