One thing that amazes me is how much of this crazy shit is sponsored by gun/ gun accessory/ bullet companies and no one picks up on the fact that fear mongering is a sales tactic.

"you need to buy a gun because crazy scary shit! Brought to you by Ruger. Buy a Ruger or you'll all be raped and murdered"

On a lot of gun shows they talk about basics of gun handling all the while playing up how wonderful the specific pistol they're using only as a prop.

"Look at how I stand with my legs as far apart as my shoulders while holding a Springfield XD. The XD is the perfect gun for this standing practice. Springfield XDs are light, powerful, and reliable. In summation, I'm standing and Springfield XDs are great little guns."

"They call us “extremists” because we wonder whether we will be able to buy a semi-auto in three years or, even in some states, later this year."

Why are you worried about not being able to buy a particular weapon in three years? If you need it, why don't you buy it now, while they are still legal? If you don't need it, what difference does it make?

Does the semi-auto you have today expire in 2 years? Are you expecting that you'll lose it? Are you saving up your money and it will take you three years to have enough? How does this make any sense at all?

Why do they want to have their cake and shoot it, too?

Uh, wasn't a substantial chunk of money that Obama directed to the states, uh, wasn't it like, directed to hiring law enforcement and drug task force funding ??? Didn't we want and like getting more police (when we're not talking about how they're jack-booted thugs who are there to be in a fantasy world of them taking our guns ?

And if there were no gangs during St. Ronnie, how come he talked so much about how they existed ?

And in comparing the guns whose distribution is unaccounted for on the Mexican border, how does that compare with the Iran/guns/Contra Scandal of St. Ronnie?

Like so much of the drivel, it is so self inconsistent that you can't argue against it as it is both yea and nay at the same time.

BTW - locally, in the news here today, one of our good second-amendment citizens was arrested for shooting at a police vehicle with subsequent search finding evidence of meth. I'm so glad he was protecting his 2nd amendment rights !
