    While the Left looks for more reasons to restrict our right to self defense every time an infamous shooting occurs, the standard reaction of the general population in Colorado is to stock up on guns and ammo in self defense.

    It’s a reaction that’s uniquely American, where every man’s a captain. But it’s also a reaction that has a long history in the West, a history we should be proud of.

    And when I say the West I really mean everywhere in America. Because at one time or another in our history everywhere from the tidewater on the east coast to the tidewater on the west coast was the West, as civilization pushed further and further westerly. And so, I believe, everywhere remains the West- at least metaphorically.

    As the establishment press (hat tip to Dan Mitchell) acts shocked! yes, shocked! that people are buying guns in record numbers in the Denver area as a reaction to last week’s shooting rampage in an Aurora, Colorado theater that killed or injured 70 people who were attending a screening of the newest Batman movie, I’m feeling, um, American about the sales.

    Really American.

    I want to go out and salute the flag and say: “Thank God for average Americans.”

    Media perception/bias for gun control stands at odds with what the American people are actually doing.
    "Was there no end to the conspiracy of irrational prejudice against Red Ryder and his peacemaker?"

    Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”

    Sooner or later, the majority of Americans will realize that they are ultimatly responsible for their own protection during incident of this type, law enforcement will show up, but most likely the shooting will be over by the time they get there.

    I see many reasons for this trend.

    #1- best way to defend you and your loved ones

    #2 -history has shown that unlike money, electronics and GOLD....the value of firearms usually goes UP.

    #3- It is a way of saying "i will not bow"

    #4 if there is a SHTF situation you can use it to gain food to feed yourself

    #5 in a SHTF situation, cars, electronics, cellphones, laptops, ipads, home theater systems, diamonds, jewelry, socks, RV's will all be worthless.......but you can still trade guns and ammo :-D
