I'm sorry guys. I voted today, but not for this outcome. maybe he'll do better than we think.
I feel so apprehensive and concerned now..God I hope this is NOT the begining of the end!

I just saw Jessie Jackson crying tears of joy. Does the crying masses of fans freak anyone else out?

If you want to piss off a conservative, lie to him.
If you want to piss off a liberal, tell him the truth.
A few years ago I sold my Bushmaster AR to a friend so i could pay some bills. Recently came into some cash, so he will sell it back to me. Happy Day. Now I just have to stock ammo.

I hate to bring this up, but aside him being President, aside a democratic congress, aside potential changes in scotus....think about this. However many US citizens voted for Obama tonight, whatever that number may be, those number of Obama voters don't care about my guns, your guns, CC, ammo availability, NRA, or the 2A.
We've got a lot of work to do.
Gain a 2A vote, take a fence-sitter shooting.
However, I think there should be some re-thinking about how to make CC more accepted among democrats. There are a quite a few pro-gun democrats, so I don't think the gun-apocalypse is coming, but there is some work left to do.

First indicator: Gunbroker.com is slowing to a crawl, no doubt from all the purchases being simultaneously processed.
Gentlemen... done crying and slobbering?
Obama is here for Four Years whether we like it or not. About The Only Good News, they did not get super majority in Congress.
John McCain fought like a Gentleman and lost like a Loser. He imposed on himself and his followers asinine Rules of Engagement while the opposition did not bother, Does that sound familiar to you Veterans?
What are our targets?
1) Congress: We get rid of the RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) and bring out true conservatives. NOT ONE PENNY TO ANY POLITICIAN WHO CRAPS OVER THE CONSTITUTION. And no more "terse" letters which make us sound like beggars. We demand that our rights are to be respected and untouched or they will find themselves without jobs and under lots of scorn.
2a) Newspapers. Newspapers are right now in a very precarious situation. Most of all the big names are hurting bad and cutting jobs to save pennies. Any rag that promotes and celebrates the restrictions to our freedoms must suffer. If you have a subscription to a paper like that, wake up tomorrow and cancel it. By the same toke, if a paper is in favor of all constitutional rights, specially a new struggling one, get not one but two subscriptions, help them out.
2b) Broadcast News Media TV. Right now they are where papers were 10 years ago. It seems their ratings somehow suffered during the coverage of the campaign and that they are losing viewers to the Cable outlets. How do we get them? Ratings of course. If you are a Neilsen family, switch your TV to any other station but broadcast news when they come on. DirecTV and DISH Networks are much easier because your box keeps track of what you watch and provides ratings. Just program your set to jump to another channel at the time of Broadcast news or turn the thing off.
2c) Fairness Doctrine. Our pal Schummer is already having orgasmic fits thinking he will be able to re instate the Fairness Doctrine and he does indeed have a good chance to do so. Here I am thinking we simply inundate all media outlets before the Fairness Doctrine gets approved, that we will demand every day equal time or that we will demand that the proper authorities take action on such blatant violation of the law. Perhaps the Big Media honchos will put enough pressure on Schummer and Co as to drop the idea altogether.
3) Get Involved! Emails and phone calls are always good, but presence always beats everything else. From creating your own blog/website to drop by your local representative's office and ask to speak to him or her to voice your opinion. Yes, you will not get him or her, but an aide will meet you and believe me, it will make an impression when they get 10 or 20 personal visits about the same subject. And no "We need contributions to accept your point" but "You make the point and we MAY support you with contributions...if you behave correctly & constantly." We do not need to make big or impressive speeches, just be direct, polite and stubborn about your cause.
These are just some thing from the top of my head. Add what you think is necessary, but for the Love of God, STOP WHINING!
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

Welcome to the United Socialist States of Amerika everyone. Leave your rights at the door.
PaulJ, I hope you do not end regretting the vote you cast for this guy. I can not, and I will not ever be able to understand how you or any gun owner, especially one who carries, could ever vote for this socialist. May I just post a quote from factcheck.org, a leftist organization itself, where they admit to several things Obama has stated that he is in favor of regarding guns:
And as for there being other issues, his party has recently called for cutting the Military budget by 25% or more. Now, when we actually are doing a pretty good job of fighting the terrorists that would destroy us, they want to slash the Military budget by 25%.Obama has called for national legislation against carrying concealed firearms, and he would revive and make permanent the expired ban on semi-automatic "assault weapons," for example. On other points it exaggerates. Obama has spoken in favor of government registration of handguns, for example,...
God help us, we are in for a bad 4 years. And we have some of our fellow "citizens" to thank for foisting this socialist on us all.
He may be your President, but he will never be mine.
What happend to the 55 million gun owners , sportsman etc, you can't tell me that they all voted for mccain & obama still won, no way & the abscent T ballets from our troops where were they, no way they were counted also , the election sad to say was a fix by the liberal news media its ashamed of what our country has stooped to by fixing the number of the votes, sorry but thats my feeling on this election outcome.
I didn't buy into his lies.
I have no interest in paying for other people's stuff, people who are too lazy to get out and work for it themselves as I have done.
I have no interest in giving up my guns to this Chicago thug, including my ability to protect my family.
I think it's going to be a wild ride from here to the finish line.
Some don't see any reason to be concerned.
I see that the battle lines have been drawn.
He's about two decisions away from blowing this country wide open.
America, what have you done to yourself?
