I'ma Let You Finish...

...but Barack Obama is the greatest gun salesman of all time!

In October 2009, firearms and ammunition excise tax collection climbed 45 percent from the previous fiscal year, the greatest annual increase in the firearms tax revenue in the agency's history, the report said. By comparison, the average annual increase for fiscal years 1993 to 2008 was 6 percent.

A Gallup Poll conducted in early October 2009 said one possible explanation for the surge in gun and ammunition sales could be that more than 50 percent of the Americans who owned guns and some 41 percent of all Americans believed that President Obama would "attempt to ban the sale of guns in the United States while he is president."

Even if I wanted to, I couldn't get enough votes in congress for me to repeal the constitution.

Jim - tell us again about the fools when the government takes your car and tells you to ride a bike to work.....takes your house so everyone lives in the same equal "BOX" provided by the government.....and because you you can't be trusted to eat the right food - you are only given government food - it will be called "soylent green." Then tell us again who is the real fool.

Think about that while you chew on your delicious "soylent green"!!!!!!!

"A heat wave settled over Russia in mid-June, according to the state-run RIA-Novosti news agency. The region has experienced record-breaking heat, with temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit)."

Evil bastard global warmists spouting lies and sedition once again.

Well, there goes that Law of Unintended Consequences again. Kind of like gravity and time, it plays no favorites. I'm sure BarryO is grateful for the spike in revenues, but is only sorry that he didn't actually think of it himself; but will probably try to spin it in his own likeness anyhow.

There is only one vote on the Supreme Court between the owning of a gun and not. If Obama is reelected it may disappear.. People who lived in big cities like Sotomayor and Ginsberg don't give a damn about those who don't, actually for any reason, but in the case of guns, for palpable reasons. Stock up. Now is the time. Don't listen to the "rational" people.

it isn't just the possibility of bans that are driving it. It is the taxation schemes some in office have shown as possibilities as well. They'd love to try the .10, .20, or even .25 per round Tax on ammo (making sure the poor cannot afford to protect themselves). They'd also love to charge you a "Health" tax on owning a gun (to pay for any injuries you may do to yourself or others with your evil gun) and they like hitting the manufacturers with lots of fees, taxes, and lawsuits to attempt to drive them out of biz.
Why ban if no one can afford buy?
Why ban if you can drive the makers out of business?
Even what .380 is out there right now is still a bargain compared to what they want to do.
