Bitter, Clingy, and Discounted

Fearing a gun-grabbing President-Elect and Congress, Ruger is issuing an "Inaugural Special" on Mini-14 magazines.

CY: Congratulations! Your blog is one of my "must reads", and you've done some terrific original investigative work. Please keep up the great work.

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't have a Ranch Rifle right now, but I just ordered several spare high-capacity mags based on my recollections of 1994. One wonders just how soon it will be before a number of firearms manufacturers and vendors will be running specials in a similar vein.

I just want to raise my son with values and moral aspects. I am concerned that the world is more about making things equal, than it is about teaching to strive harder for the material things. Working for mediocrity is only middle. We should strive to be the upper echelon.

Wow CliffTex. What would Jesus say to your idea that the world should striver harder for material things rather than working toward equality?

"We should strive to be the upper echelon" ???

Upper echelon = elite

But aren't you right-wingers always banging on about the elite, and how bad they are?

What gives?

Hmmmmm .... Trolls!

It's what's for dinner!

Right Dan, I especially like how Shoolawan the Obfuscative had to redefine upper echelon in order to deliver his crushing blow with the Hammer of Hypocrisy™. Be careful what you wish for, troll, your scheme collapses if the upper echelon slides back into your mediocrity of non-achievement.

And Smarty: Jesus wants everyone to try their best, not wait around to have their gas and mortgage bills paid. It's the moochers who have failed to live up to their responsibilities. The only equality Jesus is interested in is when everyone finally gets up off their asses and fulfills their duties to earn their place in Heaven. Jesus' sacrifice merely opened the Gate. He can't make the moochers and the looters walk through it.

ah..The SCOTUS ruled this summer on our right for guns. Neither the President nor Congress can change that. If you are buying guns, please support the small business owner in your neighborhood selling them. Also, if you have children..please be responsible enough to use trigger locks.

That post really made me chuckle. And I like what nogomore posted. Guns can be handy tools but make sure to keep the kids safe. I think firm instruction and repeated safety lessons make more sense than locks. That's the way I learned. An unloaded and locked up gun is like a lawn mower with no gas....pretty useless.

Watch for Obama, Pelosi, Reid etc to raise taxes and regulate sales and licenses(and raise fees on them too.....way up)to make things as difficult as possible for gun owners and sellers and gun owner wannabes. Watch for a resurgence of all the crap the NRA fought through for the last 20 years for us too. Join the NRA. Keep clinging to your Bible and your gun, the light at the end of the tunnel has been extinguished only temporarily.
