It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas …

Nothing shouts “Merry Christmas” louder than guns & ammo

Black Friday gun sales reach new record 

Fueled by fears that the Obama administration will go after gun rights during a lame duck term, the FBI reported 154,873 background check requests on Friday – a 20 per cent increase on last year’s record total of 129,166 checks.

The number of guns sold could actually be double or more that figure because only one background check is recorded per sale even if buyers purchase multiple firearms.

“With the recent election, some people are making buying decisions just in case something (new law) happens,” Don Gallardo, manager of Shooter’s World in Phoenix, told USA Today.

Gun stores noted that first time gun owners and women represented a significant number of those purchasing firearms on Black Friday.

President Obama indicated during the presidential debates that he would pursue an assault weapons ban, which second amendment activists see as merely the first step towards wider gun control regulation.

Obama also indicated that he would attempt to eviscerate the right to keep and bear arms during a White House meeting with gun control advocate Sarah Brady last year. During the meeting, Obama told Brady he was working “under the radar” on new gun control policy. Brady added that Obama assured her gun control was “very much on his agenda.”

But it’s not just Obama’s conduct on the domestic front that has second amendment activists concerned. The Obama administration’s willingness to sign up to a United Nations global arms treaty which threatens to outlaw guns in the U.S. is also driving firearms sales.

Final discussions on the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) are set to take place in March next year. The New American notes that, “Section III, Paragraphs 7 and 8 of the Programme of Action mandate that if a member state cannot get rid of privately owned small arms legislatively, then the control of “customs, police, intelligence, and arms control” will be placed under the power of a board of UN bureaucrats operating out of the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs,” opening the door to UN peacekeeping forces to disarm American citizens.

    Dude –
    Check this out. It’s hysterical:

    I am thinking we do something like this at your next open house. I think we can use a basement or walk in closet, if there is no elevator available. It will show your fellow real estate “professionals” that you are actually a down to earth, normal guy, and not born with the angry stick perpetually stuck up your ass.

    We can slap a wig on Dollar Bill and he can play the screaming little demon.

    What do you think?
    Your Pal,

    Dude –
    And the Martha Moxley tragedy is on the Bio Channel.
    Where were you that night? And can you prove it?
    Your Pal,

    You’re right Walt, the vid is a scream.

    I would have smacked her and I have never hit anyone.

    Dude –
    It is time to do a skills assessment. We haven’t done one in a very long time. Correct? CORRECT!!

    You over think things. And you have no cognitive reasoning. So you need to deal with that. OK?

    So they punch the little demon. So what? If I thought like you I would have never backed Bernie, and I would have spent my life in the Bankers Trust trust department dealing with widows and orphans. How bad would that have sucked? A LOT!! I would probably be living in a Cos Cob cape on a 50 X 100 lot. Trying to steal my neighbors Winnebago to escape. The HORROR!!

    You need to trust your instincts, my friend. Or you will remain the loser you are. Live for the moment!! Turn an open house into a kegger, or an orgy, and enjoy the moment. Go see the GAR Evil Princess, tell her you want to make nice, and bend her over your knee and give her a good spanking. Talk dirty to her while you do it. Then kiss her goodbye, lots of tongue, while you cup her ass, and you will take your relationship with her to a whole new level. What have you got to lose? You have no place to go but up.

    Just trust me on this. Go try it and report back.
    Your Pal,

  9. hmmm

    That’s what I was thinking. In a confined space like that I think I would be inclined to attack however if I could run I probably would

    Could get interesting if the pres gave the UN the power to nullify the second amendment and law enforcement power over US citizens on US soil. The reaons for and causes of the American Revolution and the Civil War pale by comparison.

  11. AJ

    The UN thinks it can tell American states what laws it can and can’t pass, even if those laws give residents of those states more personal freedom. Tenth Amendment? Never heard of it.

    I think Bloomie could redeem himself by throwing the UN out and seizing it under eminent domain.

    The UN wants to shut you up and shut you down.

    Don’t worry, a majority of your fellow americans, will conclude that that’s just fine.

  14. AJ

    Fred 2, I might just join them in their conclusion if there’s a free cell phone for me in it, and, of course, if it makes us all safer.
