  • This "gun sales increase" stupid liberal news headline comes out anytime there's talk of weapons, Obama, and restrictions.

  • Americans have been buying millions of guns every since Obama was elected, so this is nothing new. By some estimates 80 million Americans have 300 million guns. And, per the FBI the murder rate has gone down from 9.8 per 100,000 in 1991 to 4.8 in 2010, and is 35th lowest in the world. The fact that almost all states have concealed carry has helped lower the murder rate.

    • @Stiggy121212 Well I know as a fact that gun laws don't really mean shit out in the bush here in Canada.

      My father spent a good year up north in the territory of Yukon doing some gold mining, and everyone up there is pretty much armed and everyone knows it.

      Since the gold claims are hours from civilization in the middle of nowhere with only 1 makeshift road leading into most of them, long time gold claim owners are paranoid about old rivals coming up to steal equipment or settling old scores More..

    No law will ever be able to prevent a mass shooting.. ever, period.

    • @russiancrashdummy I just noticed you have the Netherlands listed as your country of origin, so I am sure you can relate to the subject then. I am more than sure you remember the mass shooting that occured on April 9th 2011, when a deranged gunman unloaded several magazines of ammunition on unsuspecting shoppers in a mall complex @ Alphen an the Rijn, am I right?

      Holland has pretty strict gunlaws as far as I know, and still these laws weren't enough to prevent a drama like that from happening.

  • The 94 ban didn't stop anything. It actually increased sales and interest in preban items. I bought my AR15 and high capacity mags during the ban. Hell, you can even go buy a full auto machine gun legally as long as it was made before 1986. If ignorant people need a fluffy law to make them feel safe, I just hope they buckle their seatbelt in their Prius cars a don't choke on their vegan diet.

  • Funny thing is; that these folks aren't buying these guns because of the likes of the Aurora shooter. Their buying them because of the stupid fucking liberals! Just give it up. You're already outgunned many times over.

  • Sorry granny, it has EVERYTHING to do with the 2nd Amendment. It is not about hunting. It is about presenting a paramilitary threat to any potential tyrants. We as citizens are already at a bit of a disadvantage qualitatively when it comes to firearms vis-a-vis the government; however by presenting a quantitative threat (i.e., citizens armed with such semi-automatic weapons as AR 15s and AK 47s with high capacity magazines), American citizens can discourage oppressors. It just floors me that peo More..

    • @Stiggy121212 HUH, you do know that that whole "the 2nd amendment so citizens could overthrow a tyrantical government" idea is only a re-interpretation circa pre-civil war of our forefather's intent?

      Another, more logical theory, is that they wanted citizens armed to defend our fledgling nation from the superpowers of the day attempting to overthrow us.

      Those guys could have no concept of what guns would be today and were more focus on establishing our country not anticipating the More..

    • @mabutoo The Second amendment wasn't intended to "sunset" it was supposed to be FOREVER. The founders knew bloody well the nature of men NEVER changes, especially when those men are our "leaders". People like Obama are exactly the kind our founders aimed the Constitution at!

    • @Hitler_Is_Amazing Were there any parts of our constitution designed to 'sunset'? That seems to go against the idea of a constitution.

      Of course, I never said that. Only that they were addressing the issues of their day. We have certainly amended our constitution to fit modern times not that I think that is neccesary in this case. Simple laws which monitor who is buying what guns and who may not own guns (i.e. felons and mentally unstable people). Gun ownership is not just a right, its a More..

  • I live in Colorado, and I stopped by my favorite gun shop a few days ago. Yes, many people were buying guns, and for the exact reasons they said in the article.

    Fear of violence and fear of more gun laws.


    Carolyn Mccarthy is a crazy anti gun beotch, and if my memory serves me correctly she tried to pass legislation to ban all guns that can shoot a bullet further than 100 yards. All guns can shoot much further than that.

    • @Betty Hugo what are you still doing on the computer son???? I got 2000 rounds of AK ammo hoarded the same for 9mm and 5.56! If you don't have a gun, i'd seriously think about getting one. Even if you DONT buy a gun - if you live in a free state - buy all the 30 round AK and AR mags you can find, they will be worth 5 times what you pay later!

  • Americans have been buying more guns since Obama took office thinking he was going to change the US Constitution. He might just do that .. the Patriot Act has already superseded it.
