    I think we found out just how much our government can protect us (9/11/01) and it burst our bubble. If the next one comes from the heartland, I want to be able to take a few with me or better yet, send them to hell and their virgins!

    I hope that I am wrong, but I think that the next terrorist act could very well be in the heartland too!
    God bless our troops!

    Regarding the article in the OP, I knew this surge of gun buying was 'killing' the anti-gunners. They finally get an anti-gun Pres. and VP and America starts buying guns like never before.

    It must be very frustrating to the anti-gun politicians to realize their efforts have culminated in a near frenzy buying of guns by people in every walk of life. Yet it is a statement of how Americans feel about guns. Hence the politicians fear that if they introduce gun control bills, they could lose the next election.

    The irony of this situation is just beautiful. Finally the biased news media have been successful in brainwashing the American people and it has absolutely backfired on them.

    The 20/20 and 60 minute specials on guns are, without a doubt, an attempt at damage control and to slow down the frenzy. But the 20/20 program made it so clear that the 'authorities', lock downs, cell phones, and email can't protect you, that I'm expecting the programs to increase the frenzy rather than curtail it.

    Maybe for the first time people are beginning to see the truth through the media lies - it's just great!

    Yup, our government is quickly considering patriotism as a terrorist trait.

    Like I dont know who said it but "The Second Amendment is the only amendment that prepares you for when they try and take it away".
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    This is why I won't put my trust in these fools, especially after seeing the Katrina aftermath... it almost seems that you're better off without them.

    I bet you that .22LR firearm sales are doing very well too... the other day I was shooting my Ruger single six with some cheap federal bulk ammo and I had LOADS OF FUN plinking at pie plats at 70+ yards... a hell of alot cheaper than anything else that goes BOOM.

    For this reason, when I buy centerfire ammo it's more about a SHTF situation than for target work, and I got a hand reloading kit for making range ammo to practice with my carry guns (but can't find primers to even start!!!).

    I have always enjoyed firearms. I enjoy shooting. That means that as I have opportunity I will broaden my stable and practice with what I already have in my stable.

    I don't need a reason to move forward with my plans to do so. No scares real nor imagined have suddenly transformed me into anything that I haven't been for 43 years. I want to shoot, and I want to buy. If I were a golfer I'd be doing the same thing with clubs or a stamp collector I'd be buying stamps. There is nothing odd about this.

    But now when I buy I'm placed into an odd new demographic. Now, I'm a hoarder, or a panic buyer, or whatever other labels they invent.

    Truth be told, there is nothing strange or new about what I'm doing and the media needs to get that through their thick skulls.

    +1 I couldn't agree more but the media doesn't sell the truth. I like your analogy though.

    To become a gun owner, you must have committed no felonies, not be an alcoholic or drug abuser, never been committed to a mental health facility, not have been discharged from the service dishonorably, have never been involved in domestic violence, and have never renounced your citizenship. You've got to be one of the good guys.

    So why is the government in Washington DC afraid of you? Think about it. And while you think on that, remember:

    "Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master" George Washington

    "The people are the masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it" Abraham Lincoln

    I like guns. I always have. Bought my first one 25 years ago when I turned legal age. But it had been a long time since I purchased any, though were a number I was interested in.

    Why?

    I'm a procrastinator.

    I put it off. Not now. Maybe later. The prices will come down. Need to replace the A/C. The Roof needs fixing. New car. Family. Etc. Etc.

    The thing about procrastinating, is you can only put it off so long.

    Now it looks like maybe (just maybe) my ability to purchase will be restricted.

    ...So might as well buy guns now.

    The stock market has been doing terrible (until the last few weeks) not losing much by staying out.

    ...So might as well buy guns now.

    With all this fiscal stimulating, inflation is sure to rise, and my bank account balance will buy less.

    ...So might as well buy guns now.

    While crime hasn't gotten dramatically worse, if the economy really goes in the crapper, crime is almost certain to rise dramatically.

    ...So might as well buy guns now.

    Besides they're like potato chips. Bet you can't buy just one.

    Can someone PLEASE tell me when last was there a president that spoke like this? Today the DHS would call this "hate speech" and place them in the catagory of "probably domestic terrorist."
