American Gun Production Surging Under Obama

137

If Barack Obama took office with a dream of turning America into one big gun-free zone, it appears he will leave the White House with little more than a bagful of disappointment. According to the latest numbers from the federal government – which comes up to the end of 2013 – gun production numbers in this country have never been higher.

2013 saw more than 10.8 million guns leaving the factory floor, a number that dwarfs those of just three years prior. Making the numbers especially interesting is that 2013 was the first full year after the horror show that was Sandy Hook Elementary School. While it may seem morbid to celebrate a gun boom in the wake of such a tragedy, those who believe in the Second Amendment know full well that the two concepts are only as related as liberals want them to be. And all of the gun laws in the world wouldn’t have stopped that psycho from carrying out his evil deed. In fact, there is even an argument to be made that less restrictive laws may have prevented the worst of it.

Nonetheless, Obama used that tragedy to try and pass laws banning the types of rifles used in Newtown, Connecticut. Those laws failed miserably, drawing some of the most explicit anger we’ve ever seen from the president. Despite his insistence that the majority of Americans support his idea of gun control, though, the numbers demonstrate otherwise.

Liberals look at these numbers and they simply can’t make heads or tails of them. They blame the NRA, claiming that Americans are under the spell of a powerful pro-gun lobby that is leading us all to our destruction like a mystical Pied Piper. But for those who haven’t filled up on liberal Kool-Aid, the explanations for the surge are obvious.

For one, Americans sense a coming darkness. We’ve already seen that Obama is not shy about bending the law if it means pursuing his agenda. It would not be the least bit surprising if more people are buying guns simply because they wonder if they’ll still be able to in a few years. In other words, they’re getting while the getting’s good. Not a bad idea.

But there are other fears as well. While idealists hoped that Obama’s election would usher us into a post-racial society, race relations have only worsened under his rule. Warped media coverage has black Americans believing that the police are out to kill them if they make one false move. And it has others fearing that their communities could end up like Ferguson in the wake of the Darren Wilson verdict. In this climate, one can hardly be surprised when guns are flying off the shelves.

Finally, there is the economy. There is no such thing as job security in Obama’s America. Things looks brighter today than they have in some time, but few trust this White House to keep a good thing going. To the extent that we have recovered from the recession, we have done so in spite of the president, not because of him. If things go bad again, there’s no telling what effect it might have on crime rates. Best to be prepared.

Had Obama concentrated a little more on bringing Americans together and a little less on trying to ban guns, he would have come a lot closer to realizing his dream of a safer country. Instead, he has sent people clamoring for weaponry. Just one more failure in a long list of them.

    He and his Cronies are the BEST reason to buy a gun in the world…

    1. USCBIKER says

      I’ll bet the numbers of CCW permits are also way up.

      1. Arizona Don says

        Not in Arizona Wyoming and several other states where they are not required to carry concealed. As it should be. That CCW you speak of is a form of registration whether you wish to acknowledge it or not. They have a record of you owning a gun. The saving grace to that is since there is no record of individual sales “yet” you can bury it and say you sold it. I know I just suggested you lie. To a compulsive liar president who thinks he is a dictator or God however, it is necessary to play by his rules. Lying is the number one for him! He practices it daily.

        1. Marilyn Stern says

          Registering a gun is like saying, “here I am, come and get me.” Current climate dictates stealth. I am counting on true patriots seeing the writing on the wall.

          1. Arizona Don says

            Rest assured Marilyn “true” patriots do.

            Registration is the reason why everyone living in a state where a CCW is required should be pushing their state legislators to pass the second amendment concealed carry. Most conservatives will most progressive democrats will not. Therefore, I guess the voters will just have to elect those who will.

        2. The duck says

          Kansas is working a on 2nd Amendment CC law, much like Montana’s. Carry Concealed anywhere within the state with the exception of some business’ choice to ban firearms in their establishments. Kansas bill also makes it clear that in order to carry concealed in reciprocating states you still need a permit issued by the state. It’s the right way to go. But still stay out of New York if you are carrying.

          1. Arizona Don says

            Is that under the second amendment or with a permit. I was not aware Montana had a concealed carry under the second amendment.

    2. John Doe says

      If not a whole lot more than one ! He’s only waiting for all the nation to bow down to him, raise their right hand, marching in lockstep formation, turning our heads in perfect unison as we turn to salute him. Oh, I forgot, clicking our heels together simutaneously to when he walks in a room. I’m sure all the libs out there will do just fine with their ruby red slippers on.

    3. Tricia365 says

      The numbers of CCW permits are also way up.

  2. ilovemygoats says

    When the government tells you that you don’t need a gun…that’s when you need one. The increase in gun production and sales is due to Americans who are aware of the governments agenda and aren’t about to let them ban guns or trample the Second Amendment. The government is AFRAID of armed citizens because we make it more difficult for them to control or take over this country without a civil war. They know Patriots and Freedom Fighters will NOT go quietly without a revolution.

    1. John says

      Agreed.

    3. John Doe says

      I thought I read some time ago where he was going to (if he’s not already done so) deputize all federal employees including Parks and Wildlife, National Weather Service, Dept. of Agriculture, National Weather Service etc…..basically all federal employees to come and start disarming us, in the event that those of us who dare to disagree with him and or his failed policies decide to stand up and protest or cause a revolution. This will also be his own private army that he hopes could help instill Marshall law. Also offering rewards for neighbors to spy on one another, turning in those violate his supreme order.

      1. Dave says

        I don’t know about Parks, but he has selected 5 cities, in 5 states, each with a major minority composition, where he has directed that the police departments come under federal control of the Attorney General. One is Fresno, CA. Another, IIRC, is Minneapolis, MN. Once they get those established the plan is to add more. Essentially, this is a plan to nationalize law enforcement. Remember, before his first term, he said that we should have a civilian force as well armed and equipped as the military. It may sound like a conspiracy theory but people are being paid and encouraged to spy on their neighbors and report them.

    4. Terry Hamblin says

      The framers of the second amendment were very conscious that a central Government could easily become a tyrant. Therefore they wrote in that Armed Militias should be raised in every State.

      1. Red_the_Dismayed2015 says

        “The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334 (C.J.Boyd, Ed., 1950)

    5. Laurence Almand says

      Read the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 and you will see the parallels – both are available on the internet.

  3. John says

    This was never about Obama making America , a safer place to live. Obama could care less, he is playing his part in the skeem of what is to come.American and America, keep your guns and ammo, you will need them, when the time comes.

    1. supergun says

      he is a destroyer.

    2. jim says

      John your right this guy could care less about the America he wants to distroy it, what bothers me just as much is the dum fks who dont see it coming

  4. MAHB001 says

    How could this article forget about Fast and Furious?
    0bama and Holder no longer get the benefit of doubt. Too many lies, too many cover ups.
    0bama and Holder pumped guns across the border with the hopes that those guns could be traced back to the United States so they could blame that fabricated “crisis” to impose stricter gun laws in the US.
    0bama and Holder are culpable in the death of Brian Terry, and thousands of innocent Mexicans caught in the crossfire.
    This was the first impeachable offence by 0bama.

    1. tinkerunique says

      Giving guns to the Mexican cartel was illegal, and giving guns to the Syrian (Al Qaeda) rebels was illegal. Giving the Muslim Brotherhood American tanks was illegal but paying the Taliban $5M and giving them the “Gitmo 5” in exchange for an Army deserter was an act of Treason = “Giving aid and comfort to the enemy” is a court martial offense, and 0’bummer bragged about it on national TV. 0’bummer pees on the American people and spits on the Constitution, and nobody (that can) does a thing about it.

      1. supergun says

        he does a lot of illegals………

      2. MAHB001 says

        Fast and Furious was the first, and obviously hasn’t been the last.
        Great post.

      3. Marilyn Stern says

        How about Obama outing Seal Team 6 on national television, which was a blatant breach of security? He should have been arrested, and tried, as the traitor he is. It was an unti-american act that caused the wholesale murder of members of Seal Team 6.

        1. John Doe says

          Just look on how many WH leaks there’ve been that have caused problems in many areas, just as he did about announcing that Israel already had Nukes, then they come out, with the questioned look on their lieing faces saying “Who, Me”? Just like Alfred E. Newman of Mad Magzine. (Which they’re all mad)

    2. supergun says

      In other words, you can’t trust anyone who asks for you to give up you gun?

      1. MAHB001 says

        I don’t trust 0bama. I don’t trust the Government.
        I have trusted fellow patriots when asked to give up my gun.
        I guess you have to go with your guts, and think about why they want your gun….
        If it is to reload, …..

        1. supergun says

          Don’t trust anyone, except your wife.

          1. MAHB001 says

            Sage advice…

      Amen brother,this is the most corrupt administration in the history of this Nation. P.S. Don’t forget to buy Gun manufacturing stock,401 investment,I got S&W ,its up $4.oo a share from the buy it price. He may be a failed president but he is the best gun salesman this country has ever had!

    Barack it’s Bush’s fault Obummer, America’s number one gun salesmen.

    1. jim says

      Yea everything is Bush’s fault ,everything in the world yea right , as my platoon sarge said kill em all and save six to carry the bodys

      1. Joken Joe says

        As far as the muzzies go, you have to identify them. So when you see a group of muzzies fire a burst over there heads, those that run are muzzies, but those that stand still are just well trained muzzies. And well you know what to do from there, so all that remains to be done is yell get some.

  7. MAHB001 says

    I wish 0bama was just a bad dream.

    1. dawgman says

      I have gotten up every morning since Jan. 2008 saying to myself the same.

        You know the old saying, wish in one hand, sheait in the other….
        Hey they both look like 0bama….

  8. headonstraight says

    Sure. The President is a-comin’ fer yer guns, good people! Hole up in the hills and mountains with your freeze-dried rations and your personal arsenal and just let those black helicopters land within half a mile of you and your sniper rifle and they will be s-o-o-o sorry!

    How do I know? Well, that famous draft dodger and game law violator, Ted Nugent, told me so!

  9. tinkerunique says

    0’bummer’s attempts to divide the country and promote race issues and distrust among Americans has been credited with MORE Americans willing to take responsibility to protect themselves when police are (maybe) enroute. AND America has seen that more lawful guns in the home, and on the street, have reduced the crime rate. MORE people are refusing to be unarmed victims.

    1. jim says

      tinker I dont think the police or the military would follow him if got totaly nutso

      1. WatrGrrl says

        There might be a small number of LEO’s and active duty military that have drunk the Kool Aid but I do believe the majority of active duty and us old veterans, along with the vast majority of law enforcement WILL protect our nation with armed resistance against the Muslim In Chief, MUSLIM radicals, black radicals, La Raza and the left wing Wingnuts that support the mad Kenyan…

      2. John Doe says

        That’s also the largest reason why he’s fired the vast majority of our upper rank and file military men, reducing our military down to numbers less than pre WW2 counts. He’s reversed the old adage of “The blind leading the blind, and turned it into the un-blind (in his opinion) will be leading those that are blind.

    “OUR” Constitution is clear, & predicted our current situation. All Patriots know what needs to be done if the Gov continues it’s path to h***. Why do you think the Gov bought all that ammo? They know a showdown is coming, & frankly “We the Patriots” also know….Push back America

    1. John Doe says

      Where’s anyone today in DC that remember Patrick Henry’s famous quote “Give me Liberty or Give me death” ?

      1. George Cahonna says

        It may just come to that….GOD IS ON OUR SIDE!!…. The QURAN IS ON THEY’RES

  12. d66cmorris says

    The only reason I don’t buy more firearms(guns for you ignorant liberals) is being retired and on a fixed income I ran out of extra money to buy them with.

    1. Morton212 says

      Thank God for that ! The last thing we need to dodge is an arthritic trigger finger.

      1. d66cmorris says

        LOL

      2. supergun says

        As long as you don’t try to break in on him, you won’t have to worry about the other guns he has.

    2. John Doe says

      And no doubt had you not been being so overly taxed by those in power, you would have the funds neccessary to arm yourself properly. Our representatives that are supposed to be for “We the People”, who may have been one of the people until they became elected officials, and then they forget who the people are, and become too self serving.

      1. d66cmorris says

        Right on John

    3. snowyriver says

      How many is more?? I know twenty if more than ten. Hey d66cmorris, I was born in the summer of 42

  13. Jamie T. Phelps says

    I
    think we are caught in a circular catch 22! Many rejected
    Obama’s legitimacy as a citizen and his intellectual ability often rooted
    in both conscious and unconscious ideas of white racial superiority. No
    one ever envisioned that a bi-racial descendent of persons who blood lines
    reflect both that of the dominant colonizing European “fathers of the
    nation” and the enslaved Africans and emancipated “free persons
    of color” would or could become president of the United
    States. Two elections proved us wrong.

    If we were not biased we could admit that Obama’s presidency has had positive
    consequences for many ( see the statistics of those who have benefited from the
    Affordable Care Act which allowed many to receive insurance who previously were
    unable to do so because of the economic status and/or a previous medical
    condition. His outreach to other nations as brothers and sister
    with equal dignity and co-responsibility for the future of our global world is
    also to be applauded. We no longer need to dominate and control the world
    to ensure our national well-being we need to collaborate with other nations
    respecting their dignity and contributions to a global communion that will
    benefit all. Does he have limitations? Yes! Has he made mistakes?
    Yes! but to paraphrase a biblical quote “Let he or she who is
    without fault cast the first stone!” Who does not have limitations?
    Who does not make mistakes, Our systems of checks and balances guaranteed
    by the positive and constructive interactive decision making of the House of
    Representatives, Senate and President was derailed by a Congress which refused
    to engage in non-partisan politics aimed at the common good of all of us.
    Wake up! Either we will learn to be collaborative both intranationally
    and internationally or we will all perish through global warfare or global
    economic decline or stagnation.

    God has called us to live in communion ( unity) with one another so we can
    enrich one another with our intellectual, cultural and politically
    diverse gifts. Too often we want to pretend to individually
    “have the right answer” which can only be discern through
    mutual discernment and constructive collaborative critical analysis and
    decision making of representatives of the community united under the leadership
    of a legally elected presider or president. Obama never thinks alone, He
    does have advisers and wishes to collaborate with Congress and participate
    constructively in international dialogues for peace but for too
    long congressional resistance persists!

    1. supergun says

      When did they let you out?

      1. John Doe says

        No kidding, he must be a university professor. I mean just who does he think he’s fooling, are there really any out there that have benefitted under the ACA other than lots of the freeloaders and or illegals, who’s premiums have gone down, who’s got better coverage than they had before. And since when has he wanted to collaborate with Congress unless they fall in sync with is warped communistic ideologies, afterall, if they don’t agree, he’s still got his pen and his cellphone. Rather than having a true debate, it’s his way or the highway, despite how many times Harry Reid wouldn’t even bring to the floor any dissenting views or opinions other than his own that Congress may have offered.

        1. supergun says

          American Citizens have to suffer because of people like him.

    2. ArizonaMilitiaDotCom says

      Yeah, right, “positive consequences”. From electing an utter Douchebag.

      You mean like the fact that The Zero has turned out to be the best gun salesman in the history of the United States?

      Or are you talking about the fact that he has also proved to be history’s best Recruiter for the American Militia?

      Thanks to The Zero, there are more homes in our county that have stacked up crates full of ammunition than ever before. The retail stores *still* cannot keep up with the demand, the ammo just flies off our county’s store shelves these days. I know, because I flew quite a bit of it off those shelves myself.

      You want to know what the “right answer” is? Well, Buttercup, it appears that we have done figured that out, right here in Yavapai County, Arizona:

      Buy More Λmmo. Doing so is the only viable treatment for ODDD (Obamunist Douchebag Distrust Disorder). Support your local Militia and/or your local Oath Keepers. This won’t end pretty, America.

  14. papa doug says

    Obama isn’t waiting for his “brother muslims” to get here on their own, he’s IMPORTING the enemy at the rate of 100,000 a year! Why do you think there are so many muslim mobs making demands? Lock and load people the s**t is about to hit the fan!

  15. greyfox says

    The idea of banning guns is insane. there is nothing more to be said.

  16. ArizonaMilitiaDotCom says

    The Zero has turned out to be the best gun salesman in the history of the United States.

    He has also turned out to be history’s best Recruiter for the American Militia. Volunteers are beating down the doors to join up.

    This is because anyone with the good sense that God gave a waterbug can see that The Zero’s ultimate plan is to fabricate an orchestrated “national emergency” that would give him the flimsy excuse that he has been planning for, so that he can implement all of those so-called “Executive Orders” in which he grants himself all kinds of Totalitarian powers, including the power to disband Congress, appoint himself as Dictator for Life, and kill or enslave the entire civilian population of our nation.

    Don’t bother arguing with me about it, I have been saying the same thing about The Zero since before the National Elections in 2008. His plan is as clear to me as it must have been for the poor souls who were victimized by Stalin.

    The difference, of course, is that American Patriots have no intention whatsoever of giving up our firearms. My wife and I have not been stocking up on irons, ammo, standard-capacity magazines, and a good supply of replacement parts for our AR15-type and other firearms for the past ten years just so that we could meekly hand them over to the Obamunists. No sir, those irons and ammo are for when The Zero tries to tell us to hand them in. That ain’t gonna happen. That will be when his Obamunist goons are going to receive our ammo first, one round at a time, from 300 yards or more distance.

    We just recently received another shipment of 30-round magazines for our AR15-type rifles. Our eventual goal is to accumulate 100 such magazines. After we reach that goal, we are going to continue to buy more and to stash them in hidden caches where we know we will be able to retrieve them after The Zero has decreed that we aren’t allowed to have them anymore.

    We are pretty darn close to that first goal of 100 right now, and we have no plans to stop buying them as long as the prices stay so low. I can remember those days between 1994 and 2004 when I had to pay $30 or more for one well-used magazine like that, thanks to the bubblehead Libtards. While I can still buy those exact same mags, new in the wrapper, for $6-$10 each, we will continue to stock up!

    The rest of you who are getting ready for the big “R” that is inevitably coming our way, you need to be doing the same. Stock up now, while you still can. The Second Amendment exists for a very, very good reason.

    Buy More Λmmo. Doing so is the only viable treatment for ODDD (Obamunist Douchebag Distrust Disorder). Support your local Militia and/or your local Oath Keepers. This won’t end pretty, America.

      It is going to be exhausting to have to reconfigure all resistance to the threat of Clintonumism I suppose.

      1. ArizonaMilitiaDotCom says

        Since she likes to be called by her “maiden” name, we should be calling it “Rodhamunism” .

        Or maybe the more accurate term would be “Hildebeastiality”, would it not?

        And I suppose that we could go back to using the term “Clintonistas” to describe their drooling, mouth-breathing followers.

        1. Morton212 says

          Well I am sure that the pigs will have a swell time name calling the first Lady President of the USA and her First Gentleman.

  20. fsa0033 says

    All this nonsense is just costing the average citizen more money to acquire ammunition and firearms. The Ruger 10/22 I purchased for my kids cost $105 and now it goes for over $280. My Colt Combat Commander which back in 1982 cost $300 now goes for $1,200. Prices are overwhelming the market. It shouldn’t be this way. Ammunition is also way up. .22LR rounds cost 2 cents per. Now they average around 12-22 cents per and up. It’s ridiculous. Politicians and manufacturers are reaping the benefits of this Right of ours. If it’s a right then leave it alone and stop meddling in the Constitution. I say anyone or any institution trying to alter or hinder the Rights of the 2nd Amendment should be prosecuted for treason and sedition of all patriots. That should’ve been the law attached along with the 2nd Amendment that would’ve prevented all of this nonsense.

    1. Morton212 says

      It’s a market economy. Don’t knock it. Or make your own ammo.

      1. fsa0033 says

        I do. I have a Dillon RL550B. Getting primers and powder are also difficult and expensive. Scrounging for lead and cases are dangerous. People will claim sections to appropriate the brass. I’m not going to get into a shooting match in order to gather parts. I don’t mind a competitive market. I do argue against gouging the people for political reasons.

        1. Morton212 says

          It seems that the gun lobby is not your friend, but trying to pick your pocket.

    How about these words of wisdom from an esteemed Founding Father?
    “A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from ANY who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their OWN GOVERNMENT!”~George Washington, a natural-born American citizen, Patriot, and First President of the United States.

    1. Morton212 says

      “In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own. It is error alone that needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.”
      ~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Horatio Spofford, 1814

      1. fearlessolotraveler says

        Morton212: Thank you for sharing that incredible quotation. It’s one I haven’t seen among Thomas Jefferson’s many statements, which I refer to as “Prophecies for America’s future generations!” Even 239 years ago, “a few” of our Founding Fathers obviously realized the rapacious greed and propensity for power and (ultimately,) subjugation within the government which at that time, had unquestioned authority to dictate to a young nation which was still basically, uneducated and vulnerable.
        In 2007, I started memorizing Founding Father quotations so I could answer Anti-Gun ignorant people with more than just “my opinion.”

        Keep some “power dry” Morton212 and remember this fervent admonition from yet another Founding Father:

        “The duty of a patriot is to protect his country from its GOVERNMENT!”~Thomas Paine

        1. Morton212 says

          Well thank you – but I am afraid you are misunderstanding Jefferson’s meme. It was really nothing to do with protecting his country from government, but protecting it from the despotic influence of religion.

          1. fearlessolotraveler says

            Oh, my goodness!! You are quite correct, Morton212. It seems I was so excited to read an unfamiliar quotation from President Jefferson that I inadvertently missed “fully absorbing” the word: PRIESTS in that specific sentence! I now realize my mistake by focusing instead on “hostile, liberty, despot and abuses,” in line with my thoughts since 2008 concerning the relentless aggression from this government to get our guns FIRST, then ultimately, destroying The Middle Class and America, step-by-step!
            When reading your reply, I instantly recalled researching biographical information in 2009 for this President which revealed (to my shock and disbelief) that: “Thomas Jefferson was an adamant deist…”
            So I apologize for my glaring mistake Morton212 and thank you for your correction. I shall “read more carefully” next time! 😉

          2. Morton212 says

            You are welcome – no need to apologize to me – learning is a constant process. And here is another useful one:

            “When a religion is good, I conceive it will support itself; and when it does not support itself, and God does not take care to support it so that its professors are obligated to call for help of the civil power, it’s a sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one.”
            ~Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, letter to Richard Price, October 9, 1780

          3. fearlessolotraveler says

            Morton212: If you don’t mind, I’d like to reply to your “learning is a constant process” statement.

            I’ve been a teacher a very long time so memorizing quotations of famous people plus memorizing, spelling and correctly pronouncing words of six or more syllables are on-going hobbies that I never lose interest in. Therefore, in relation to your comment, may I share this from Brian Tracy, a renown author and motivational speaker who said: ”Commit yourself to life long learning. The most valuable asset you’ll ever have is your mind, and what you put into it.”

            In serious opposition to Mr. Tracy’s constructive directive is this dangerous opinion: ”Education is dangerous. Every educated person is a future enemy.”~Hermann Goring, German Luftwaffe commander, second only to Adolph Hitler, etc, etc, etc.

            Enjoy the rest of your week Morton212 and do take care of yourself as a “critical thinker” because John D. Rockefeller, patriarch of the Rockefeller ilk said: “I don’t want a nation of thinkers; I want a nation of WORKERS!” Hmmmm? Something like: Sheeple?

          4. Morton212 says

            Large parts of our economic and political establishment do not want too much education to affect the nation. If the voters thought critically, I daresay half the members of Congress would not have their jobs.

          5. fearlessolotraveler says

            You are correct though I daresay MORE than “half of Congress” would not have been “elected” if “The Majority” were critical thinkers.

            Your comment brought to mind number six in Saul Alinsky’s “Eight levels of control that must be obtained before a Socialist State can be created,”

          6. kibitzer3 says

            Just for the record, fst: T.J. was not a deist. That was what his Federalist enemies tried to make of him, when he didn’t toe their line on religious dogma. His doctrinal opinions changed over the years, but his unwavering admiration for the man Jesus never did. A good book in all this regard: ‘The Jefferson Lies’ by David Barton.

            And P.S. Thanks for the T.J. quote. I’m a firm admirer of the man, and wasn’t familiar with it.

          7. fearlessolotraveler says

            Good morning kibitzer3, I’ve just read your message and the new information you’ve shared about President Jeffersons “spiritual inclinations” has definitely “Made my day!” THANK YOU very much! I’m SO happy and grateful to learn our third and very illustrious President did indeed, have a “working knowledge” of Jesus!! 🙂

            It’s a “long story,” but because of his countless and fervent admonitions to America’s future generations, I’ve ALWAYS sensed this President had a tremendous dedication to “God, and Country!” Thank you again for “enlightening” me concerning a TRUE patriot I have admired and revered since high school (fifty six years ago.) However, I’ve been acknowledging and honoring him even more since 2008! 😉

            Because I’m traveling at the moment, I may not have immediate access to “The Jefferson Lies,” but be assured, I will read that book in its entirety!

            Wishing you a pleasant rest-of-the-weekend wherever you are kibitzer3, and if you’re not already familiar with this quote, may I share yet another example of wisdom and insight from that dear President:

            “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”~Thomas Jefferson

          8. kibitzer3 says

            Thank you for your sentiments. And just to close this exchange off with another proof that the man was not a deist, here’s another quotable quote from this remarkable man:

            “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; and that His justice cannot sleep forever.” Not that it ever did, or does. But we need to learn our lessons. Another of which is:

            “When government fears the people, there is liberty When the people fear the government, there is tyranny,” Says it all, really.

            Have a nice day. 🙂

    obama is beyond any doubt the BEST gun salesman the United States has ever seen. Hands down he has no competition whatsoever. None! Who remembers him saying he did not want to ban guns when he was running of office? Yea he did! Looks like he changed his mind. But oh gee he is a democrat he can do that. But a conservative who does deserves criticism for such a horrendous act.

    Some rather interesting info if you have not seen it its worth a look. Feel free to pass it on.

    http://www.ignatius-piazza-front-sight.com/2015/01/26/use-ammunition-gun-grabbing-liars/#vid

    With that verifiable information we can make some calculations here. There are 315 million citizens in America that (90 out of 100 or 9 out of 10 are gun owners) means 283 million are gun owners. Now since the average is five guns each that means there are 1billion 415 million guns in America. Now at 1415 million guns and each has an average of one hundred rounds of ammo per gun (I know of gun owners who have many thousands of rounds) equals 141 and a half “billion” rounds of ammo. The above numbers increase daily if not hourly. Who thinks that number of guns and ammo can ever be confiscated without the American citizen surrendering them voluntarily? I submit it would be impossible to confiscate them all even if the second amendment were repealed.

    1. glenn398 says

      They don’t need to take away the guns just stop production of ammunition.

      1. Arizona Don says

        Records from 2012

        http://www.ignatius-piazza-front-sight.com/2015/01/26/use-ammunition-gun-grabbing-liars/#vid

        USA # 1 when the number of guns out of 100 residents is counted USA = 90

        in other words 90 out of every 100 people have a gun.

        Many of the gun control nuts consider Texas gun crazy and yet Plato Texas (where nearly everyone owns a gun) has a crime rate of 0.4 per 100,000 citizens.

        So if 9 out of 10 citizens are gun owners, and there are 315 million citizens in America that means 283 million are gun owners. Now since the average is five guns each that means there are 1billion 415 million guns in America. Now at 1415 million guns and each has an average of one hundred rounds of ammo (I personally know gun owners who have many thousand rounds) per gun equals “141 and a half billion,” with a B, rounds of ammo. The above numbers increase daily if not hourly. Who thinks that number of guns and ammo can ever be confiscated without the American citizen surrendering them voluntarily? I submit it would be impossible to confiscate them all even if the second amendment were repealed.

        Who remembers the progressive democrats declaring 20 million illegal immigrants cannot be deported. So how do they propose to confiscate over a billion guns.

        Now we know what a sleeping giant really is!

        1. glenn398 says

          Ammunition does deteriorate in time especially 22 shells so time has always been on the enemies side. That is a sham as if they wanted to they could deport them if they wanted to, after all Ike deported 5 million. They wouldn’t have to deport any of them, all they would have to do is go after the employers and those receiving government handouts. With those two gone the illegals would deport themselves and the others headed here would have no reason to come.

          1. Arizona Don says

            You are correct it does. Under certain weather conditions it deteriorates much quicker then in others. For instance wet damp areas it has a much shorter storage life then in very dry zones. The New England states for example the storage life is less then half that it is here in the southwest. I have some over 30 years old and have not had one misfire from any, yet and see no difference (decrease) in velocity or energy. There are only a couple hundred of those left now. Here in the southwest over forty years is not unusual.

            Who thinks we cannot make out own?

            Currently many government agencies along with media claim there is only 11 or 12 million illegal alien’s here. That is not true or even remotely true. Even many border service personnel believe the number is more like 60 to 80 million and maybe more then a hundred million. There may be over 12 million OTM’s here. They cannot be deported but not for the reason the progressive democrats stated. One thing is for certain no one method will get all the illegal alien out of this nation any more then any government can ever confiscate all the guns. Furthermore, if push came to shove in other words arguments turned into conflict we also know where all the national guard gun and ammo as well as regular Army stashes are. Other weapons as well.

            However I, like many others, do not believe anyone in this administration would ever be foolish enough to ever think they could ever get away with anything on a large scale against the people. As long as we stay armed we have nothing to fear. Give in or surrender and we are history. Like so many other nations have in times past.

          2. glenn398 says

            I have found 22 shells get weak much sooner say in 6 years and live in Phx. No they won’t do things on a large scale but if you notice they have been taking guns away for any reason no matter how small. Even people that go and see a physiologist or domestic dispute so like communism they creep up on you little by little. As far as fighting the government wouldn’t plan on most of the youth of today as their only concern is if the cell phone is working.

          3. Arizona Don says

            I admit I do not shoot many 22’s although I have a couple. I have some 22 rounds I have had for 30 years I’ll have to give them a try next time. I’m in Scottsdale myself and usually go to Avery. Nearly all my center fire ammo has been around for a few years although I keep up dating and I also reload myself. I’m retired so I have a little time to do some of those things.

          4. glenn398 says

            I retired 11 years ago so am with you. I like 22 shells as you can carry a lot of ammunition with you and most shooting is close range anyway. The 22 rounds I like the best is the 22 mags as they are a lot more power. The center fire rounds will last a lot longer just because of the way they are made.

          5. Arizona Don says

            That’s interesting we may be near the same age. Although I retired more then 11 years ago. Pilots are required to retire before other occupations. Depends I guess on how old you were when you retired I’m 76.

            I like the 223 for keeping up on shooting it is rather cheep and keeps shooters from flinching when changing over to the heaver rounds. I have found 22’s not as good at that. If someone shoots enough their eyes never close when firing and they actually see the bullet hit the target. I now do not shoot as much as I would like and my hunting buddy got a leg and knee problem so he no longer hunts. Neither have I for a few years now. I am now pretty much just resigned to shooting and collecting.

            Nice conversing with you perhaps we will meet someday.

          6. glenn398 says

            I am 74 so we are close to the same age. I agree with the 223 as it is my favorite weapon. Like you just go shooting at times to keep my skills up. I am fortunate that really have no major medical problems so am not limited. Yes would enjoy getting together some time.

          7. Arizona Don says

            My email address sonoranex@aol.com contact me sometime and perhaps, if our schedules do not conflict, we can get together.

          8. glenn398 says

            Don have sent you an email but don’t know if you received it a few days ago.

          9. Arizona Don says

            No I don’t think so

    I was in a gun store that had a picture of 0bama on the back side of the front door.

    I got to the picture and turned around and decided to buy the gun…..

    1. Morton212 says

      Figures that you would respond to pictures better than commonsense.

      1. MAHB001 says

        There are some pictures that initiate that automatic gag reflex, you know the one designed for self proservation.

        Any picture of 0bama seems to do it for me. It seems I am pretty good at recognizing and expelling evil.

        1. Morton212 says

          I seriously doubt that … it was probably a mirror you were gazing at with your wrong glasses on.

          1. MAHB001 says

            Nope, just checked again, went to the top of this page, saw the mug shot of 0bama and a little vomit came up.
            Definitely self preservation, definitely 0bama doing it.

          2. Morton212 says

            There are very good therapists that could help you deal with these irrational psychotic attacks. Remember that a picture is only a picture, has no legs or tentacles.

    2. John Doe says

      MAHB001, was the picture of Obama in the center of a white target with circles and the bullseye on his nose ?

      1. MAHB001 says

        You saw it too? 🙂

  27. Roger Wee says

    The increase of guns purchase is because the American people have lost confident with the Obama Administration. Furthermore, the law enforcement personnel are acting more like thugs nowadays. They are all preparing if the day comes where they have to protect their own safety from mass chaos.

    1. George Cahonna says

      With 300,000 hunters in my State alone . Law enforcement should think about they’re oath of Office, or submit they’re resignation now.

  30. Remmie says

    Have you seen the videos on youtube where the U.S. military and law enforcement are practicing rounding up “dissidents” in South Florida? Some thing called Jade Helm 15. A dissident is anybody that disagrees with the government. And this is the same thing ALL totalitarian governments do. Something our Constitution expressly prohibits. Anybody who sees these practice runs without alarm bells going off in their head is driving while blind. Best prep for a revolution, oturd is telegraphing his moves and it is your own fault if you let yourself be blindsided.

  31. Alleged Comment says

    Americans instinctively do not trust Negroes. Even when you have one as illegal president! That to me, explains the gun surge much to the embarrassment of the Demoncrap party and their chosen negro.

    I heard that when you fill out a new Doctors Info form, they ask you if you own a firearm, or they won’t treat you, til you answer. 1 has nothing to do with the other. It’s none of his business, so yes Arizona Don, play by his poker rules. We learn to lie from the best!

  34. Dave says

    Accurate article on the whys. However, even our side errs in reporting. A rifle was NOT used at Sandy Hook. Second, the Prez, VP, Atty Gen, and many more have blood on their hands due to their anti-gun threats, as well as their openly hostile, racist, and bigoted views of anyone who does not support their views on all matters. They drive wedges between different groups, turning one upon the other, n order to distract the people from what is taking place behind the scenes. If ever there was a “Manchurian Candidate”, Obama would be the one. He could not have done a better job of destroying a great nation if he actually planned it’s demise.

  35. Dave says

    Just buying a gun creates a registration record. In California, there are two computer systems. One records background checks. The other records the names of people who have been admitted, whether directed or of their own volition, to a mental health facility. The two check each other. If a match turns up, the state ATF investigators go to the home without a warrant and try to get the resident to allow them entry to discuss a sensitive issue. They try to talk the gun owner(s) into voluntarily surrendering the firearms, which they will take with them. They then drop a report on the local DA for possible prosecution. You see? In California, the law states that no person who has been hospitalized for mental health issues may, in any way, have access to guns. If, for example, you are married and have firearms in you own name, and even if you keep them secured in a safe and she does not have the key or combination, YOU are in violation of the law, and the penalty is the possibility of losing your 2nd Amendment Rights. So, if you are in CA and live in a similar situation, I suggest you dump the spouse ASAP. The foregoing is not fictitious; it has already taken place and been publicized. Our local Sheriff has also advised us of this fact. And, it’s your duty to PROVE he/she didn’t have access to your guns. Not that the state will listen.

    The question should be how many of the muzzies are buying guns
    or having the government give them to them and how well armed

  42. headonstraight says

    Sure, gun production IS up, and the reason for that is the climate of “he-will-tale-your-guns-away paranoia induced by the wild-ass gun nut wackos and their influential ally, the NRA. Gullible people believe all the propaganda barfed out by that deranged sector of society and run to the gun shops and buy yet more weapons and ammo as they let their fertile imaginations conjure up visions of hordes of gummint gun-snatchers descending in black helicopters to copnfiscate their weapons and herd them all off to FEMA camps hidden in the swamps and deserts. The gun and ammo manufacturers just l-o-o-o-ve all this mass hysteria.
