Is Obama the greatest gun salesman in America?

Gun manufacturers would likely not be the first to come to mind when considering industries who have benefited the most during President Obama’s first term, but a study from Ammo.net finds that firearm sales and concealed handgun permit applications are at all-time highs since the 2008 election.

Just to show a few statistics illustrating what those in the industry call ”the Obama effect:”

-Ruger’s firearm sales have gone from $117 million to $232 million, an increase of 98%
-Winchester’s sales of ammunition have gone from $431.7 million to $572 million, an increase of 33%
-Federal excise taxes collected on the sale of new firearms and ammunition has risen 48.3%
-January 2012 was the 20th straight month of increases in NICS background checks compared to the same month in the previous year
-December 2011 saw over 1.41 million NICS background checks run, the most ever for a single month
-The few states which regularly report concealed carry permit numbers have seen increases in active permit holders ranging from 46% to 161%

The correlation is astounding considering the day after his election the Gun Owners of America speculated that President-elect Obama “will be the most anti-Second Amendment president in the history of America.” The National Rifle Association (NRA) is actively working to defeat President Obama in the 2012 re-election, with NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre telling the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference.

    I was a little paranoid during the Bush Presidency. That is when I bought my 9MM.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      daves… Well, now that your FAVORITE person is in office, why don’t you get rid of it???Don’t you know that your pal ozippo doesn’t like guns?You can’t be a good little lib and be a closet gun owner at the same time.

    • john j

      The comedy of it all , is most likely the majority of the gun sales are the libbies of the world … LOL they have always been from the belief of I should have the right to have this sort of thing and you should not … Just your liberal way of thinking ! You know what bothers me , is that if the gun and ammo sales are up so much …HOW COME THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING IS UP SO MUCH ???…

    • Tag

      Did you by any chance read you comment before posting? I had to read it a couple of times to ‘get’ what you said – are you an oscummo follower?

    • KENNETH IRVINE

      Well John my boy that shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out, Because they can or supply and demand comes to mind! And also you really don’t believe they will pay the IRS the taxes on their sales do you we the buyer pay the taxes for them!!!

    • rocky

      How about the fact that energy cost are way up and even though the left don’t want to admit it our money has been inflated so dollar isn’t worth what it was. Gee could that be why everything cost more? YES!

    • daves

      President Obama couldn’t possibly hate guns considering all the terrorist assassinations he has ordered.

    • boone1

      John it’s called supply and demand that means when the demand out strips the supply prices go up.

    • Texan living overseas (until Texas secedes)

      While that’s true the prices are also rising as the costs for the materials (iron, lead, etc.) is becoming more expensive as the federal reserve inflates the economy.

      Let me just say, when ACORN frauds Obama into a second term, will you all THEN please consider secession?

      It can be done peacefully. Many polls show that Yankees favor letting Texas go if we want to leave. ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS WANT IT!

      And for those who say it’s “illegal”, if there is ANY country in which secession is legal, it’d be the USA, formed by seceding from Britain!

      Anyone who says secession is illegal is defaming the memories of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who died to protect other “Right-wing southern secessions” such as South Korea, South Vietnam, Taiwan, South Sudan, etc.

      That Americans would die to protect other right-wing southern secessionist movements but oppress our own shows that trait which God hates most: hypocrisy.

    • donwan

      Well said Ann R.

    • patriot2

      Ann don’t be too hard on daves,he’ll turn it in to toys r us as soon as obama want’s him to.I promise I won’t defend him when obamas private army shows up,and they will if they have a chance.

    • graybuffalo

      Don’t forget, Dingle Barry said he was going to form a civilian army perhaps bigger than the military standing army. First, he has to grab our guns. He is following the Cloward-Piven strategy from Columbia University in destroying capitalism by overwhelming our economy (well on his way)so he can install a Totalitarian Socialist State.
      Then the civilian army will be able to put the general Amerikan populace under his control. Obama is using “shock and awe” in terms of all the regulations, loss of freedom, economy busting moves, etc. – shock and awe in the sense that we can’t even keep up with the onslaught of anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-morality, anti-freedom activities he throws at us on a daily basis.
      Obama is the single most dangerous man in the United States. He makes Charlie Manson look like a piker.

    • dan from ohio

      you are absolutely correct!

    • axmickl

      When they come to my door to collect my arms they will be met with my ammo first. When the Acorn and Black Panther goons decide they are ready to take us on they might not want to start with my street. I am previous Special Forces, one neighbor is a Ranger, another is 82nd Airborne and we have a few ground pounder legs around. What a fight that will be.

    • daves

      No. Contrary to false Internet rumors, the new Ready Reserve Corps of doctors and other health workers will report to the surgeon general and be like the “ready reserves” in other uniformed services. They will be used during health emergencies.

    • Scott Udelhoven

      I bought a gun and ammo because of Mr. O, him and Hillary really want a new world order to decrease small arms, that means us people. Hello, wake up, everyone knows how many other dictaterships took peoples guns away, and then killed them. ????????

    • Robert Anderson

      Yep , Guess who will come in and take over this Country ? DRUG CARTEL as that is who he allowed BIG GUNS to be sold to!! Did that so he could get the LATINO VOTE this fall !!
      Get your guns and ammo ready as you are going to need them !!!!!!

    • boone1

      let me tell you that gun will not save your family are you best you get an AR-15 OR AK-47 AND LOTS OF AMMO BECAUSE THIS WILL BE ALONG WAR.

    • Bob Velon

      I have one and a Mini 14 to boot along with 6k rounds of ammo….Bring it on……….

    • Dwight Hill

      Ak’s are known to be misses after 15 feet . AR’s are a nice guns , but .223 are little too small to drop man . They are good to stop a coyote though . You can get a .308 , but , the cost are a little high . But , then again , everybody is making them .What you can do though , is by a 12 gauge , and a .30-30 , lever or whatever you can .

    • Johnnny

      Believe me,a 12 gauge shotgun loaded with double oo buck shot will do the job. Ask any police officer.Very cheap, very, very effective.

    • Jack

      I agree that they want total control over the citizens here. However they had better think long and hard on this because most of the patriots will never turn in their guns. The only way they could attempt this is with the UN comming in to help. I think that would be an invasion and that would turn ugly real quick.
      As for the back ground checks how many of those were for multipal guns?
      Buy more guns and ammo.
      God bless the Republic.
      I am a conservative, I am mad and I vote.

    • axmickl

      There is no way any UN country is going to take on the armed American. Those of us not in uniform but armed to the teeth constitute the greatest standing army in the world. If my 9mms don’t get you my 12 gauge will. I have enough ammo to hold off an army and am not afraid to use it.

    • Bob Velon

      If he was paranoid of Bush he should be frantically paranoid under the purple lipped bottom feeding lizard…..He has been the best salesman for weapons and ammo this country has ever known…..

    • Glo

      That’s a very good reply, Ann.

    • daves

      Ann, I still need it because of all you armed scary people.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      daves… I was sooo worried that you didn’t have enough sense to know that.Ya Coulda fooled me.

    • mes

      good come back…I never worried about my gun rights when Bush was in office…what a weenie that person is…they should definetly sell their gun and be happy now….

    • mrojas

      You just told on yourself Idiot now obami will be the one to take your gun away.

    • Robert Anderson

      He MIGHT try BUT , It is still ilegal to Kill you for owning one BUT ????????????
      If you shot anyone , shot to kill !! A dead tresspasser can not SUE YOU !! Also make sure you DRAG them inside your home !!

    • American 1st

      WE DON’T HAVE TO DRAG THEM IN ANYMORE!

      We’ve had a number of home invasions in some surrounding towns, but it hasn’t been working well for the invaders. Seems a bunch of them have gotten shot, so home invasions are on the decline.

    • 45 Bandit

      Yes they are on the decline thanks to CCW and people arming themselves, but I heard on Fox news two days ago that there is a home invasion in this country every 14.3 seconds. Still waaaay to many and will only get worse as the economy continues it’s downward spiral. Invest in precious metals… Buy lead.

    • Larry E

      daves what were you paranoid about, that you might have to hear about the Constitution and how the country works. Your boy Obummer is the one to be afraid of. If he’s reelected to you think that websites like this one will be allowed to operate very long. His acolytes have said that freedom of speech has its limits, like in criticizing the Glorious Leader and his plots and plans to destroy this once great country.

      Think about it you moron, and btw, I’ll spot you your 9mm and raise you two .45’s, if you could get that close that is.

    • American 1st

      Good one Larry. I’ll spot Daves his 9mm and raise him a Judge.

    • axmickl

      Couldn’t help but reply to the 45 comment. I have thousands of rounds of 9mm ammo stacked at home. You can’t afford to do that with your 45. Besides, a 9 mm between the eyes will kill just as effectively as a 45.

    • daves

      Larry, are you threatening my life?

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Daves.. You are not as smsrt as i thought.These people don’t make idle threats.

    • Mike Leonardi

      Hi Dave, just some advice to all you gun purchasers. Make sure you practice after the sale. Get used to handling the firearm everyday, develope muscle memory, know the internal workings and what may happen if…..holster and unholster, drop the mag, insert a mag, practice. If theres other adults and responsible children teach them. Center mass is a great shot but seldom do you have that opportunity, hit whatever presents itself. A wounded assailant is better than one thats fully fuctionable. Distances know distances around your house place markers, paint objects white so you can see them at night. Remember the police use the 21 foot rule, you cant draw and hit the assailant in less than 21 feet. Anybody can be an assailant anybody can be the shooter. Ive seen a grandmother of 4 take out a target. A revolver is my choice and a shotgun or old school .45s. MORE WOMEN need to get into self protection and shooting. WOMEN get MOTIVATED tell other women. Get other women involved. WOMEN ARE KEY!!!!
      ALL gun owners are GREAT AMERICANS.
      Mike in Afghanistan

    • Johnnygard

      Mike, daves is a liberal, so please don’t tell them how to be responsible gun owners. I don’t want anyone even teaching them how to load the weapon.

    • Sam

      Johnnygard,

      If a liberal DOES know how to load, do you really want them to be bad shots? That child or dog they hit could be your own. I believe that a good shooter is a smart and accurate one. And a good shooter turns out the be a CONSERVATIVE!

    • daves

      When I went to the conceal and carry class, most of the classroom time was spent on what to tell the police if you have to shoot someone.

    • daves

      And I have had plenty of training in the Marine Corps.

      We don’t want no Maggie’s drawers, all we want are 5’s and 4’s. Ooh Rah.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      I know some Marines and you are NO Marine.

    • http://Yahoo Wally Fulton

      I agree with you Mike woman are the key they all need to realize that if OBUMER is re elected and the MUslims have there way no women will be free to live like they do now in the USA Just ask a Muslim women that dares to even speack up without getting beaten or killed. Thats what is in store for any women here in our country if the MUSLIM BASTARD gets another 4 years in office. Ladies get your guns now and practice.

    • Roger

      I would really really love to see Hillary told she can’t leave the house without slick Willie’s permission, especially since she is a big player in helping obama support his fellow muslims.

    • http://patriotupdate Kay Ferguson

      Hitlery is also the the driving force behind UN Small Arms Treaty. She is a blithering liberal globalist idiot and is as dangerous as the usurper.

    • Glo

      I should really like to learn some “kick-boxing” and self-defense from Chuck Norris, myself. I don’t own a gun, but am thinking that maybe I should. At one time, I was “pretty good” at target practice and believe I could improve if I should so desire.

    • Mary Kay

      I assume you are in Afganistan with our military. Thank you Mike for your service. And you are right! Women do need to be armed and ready. I am looking forward to a course at Frontsight, a premier trainer. The Japanese were afraid to attack the US after Pearl Harbor because they knew Americans were armed and potentially dangerous. Well, lets keep it that way.

    • Jack

      Mike, I work in a gun club and teach handgun classes. About 1/2 of the students are women. Most have never shot before. When asked why they are learning to shoot most say they will not be a victim. They are taught to body mass and to keep praticing. The great reward from teaching these women is seeing them relax and start dong very well on their first time on the range.
      These women also purchase hand guns. Some already know long guns.

    • axmickl

      If you could see the grouping my wife shoots you would not want to mess with her. I take her and others from my family to the range regularly and they all shoot well. I got my wife a S&W 22 target pistol. It won’t knock down a bull but most humans wouldn’t want her aiming at them. Besides, she can practice for hours for a couple bucks worth of ammo.

    • Jdangiel

      Never knowing if Barney Frank was right behind me waiting for me to bend over, I’d be parmoid too.

    • mike88

      It is not just a matter of buying guns or ammo, it is also a matter of being willing and able to use them even against government agents or as they are sometimes called “govenmnt thugs” in order to protect you,your family or your property.
      The act of using guns to protect your life family or property against government agents i.e. police, FBI agents or criminals on the streets or anybody else who threatens your life or your liberties would label you as a criminal by the government.
      Look at Ruby Ridge as an example, they were willing to use guns o protect themselves from the government thugs yet they were greatly outnumbered by police and other Federal Agents. People need to learn to put petty differences aside, and band or group together in order to protect yourselves from any intruders, just like the police or any military unit band together for their own safety. If you are not willing to use guns to defend yourselves and your neighbors against intruders no matter who they are then the act of buying guns is a wasted effort both monetarily and Libertarily. I hope is never comes down to actually having to use guns on anybody, but only time will tell.

    • Sam

      mike88,

      It is clear you know your history, but NOT your Constitution, or its footnotes, the Federalist Papers, which have the same force as the Constitution.

      Federalist Paper #28 reads in part that, those office holders who usurp their authority are to be thrown out of office with ARMED FORCE. Those who used armed force in defense of their lives, families, and homes are within their legal rights in defending themselves. Unfortunately, we also have a “legal” system so corrupt that they believe that the rights granted to us by GOD, in this case, the right to defend ourselves, is a “wrong.”

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      I have bound copy of the “Federalist Papers.” Do you happen to remember what page that quote is on?
      I’m afraid if ‘they’ persist, their going to find out the hard way we mean what we say.

      I’v said the same thing as well. I also remember the movie: “Zulu” in which Color-Sergeant Borne (actual name) said: “Look to your front. Mark the target when he comes…” I’ll never forget, and try not to think of what I’m doing at that time, just reacting…

    • Vietnam Veteran

      As a Vietnam Vet, I can say I didn’t volunteer for the country I’m currently living in. If OBozo is reelected, he will make Hitler look like an angel. This man is worse than any communist dictator to ever rule. And rule is what he will do here, not govern. And smart? He’s so stupid he doesn’t even know that the U.S.A. is a Republic, not a Democracy. And you thought Dan Quayle was stupid??????

      I joined the military in 1959 and retired in 1979. What’s happening in America today is pretty much the same thing I was fighting against. No doubt why Americans are arming themselves. No doubt at all.

      Not to mention he thinks (and said) he had visited all 57 states. Actually there are 57 Islamic states…. there he goes again, thinking he’s already converted America to a Muslim nation. NOT!

    • axmickl

      O Ya, well all 57 states voted for him. Think about what the press would have done to Quail if he had said that.

    • Robert Anderson

      Daves; Is that because you saw that OBAMA was going to be the next Pres.? Because Bush protected us all and did not try to take evryones guns away !!

    • daves

      It was because of that obtrusive Patriot Act passed back in 2002.

      IF you register and if you buy anything now your going to be registered wheather you like it or not. That way they know who to come after !
      I think alot of driveways will be nick named the ALAMO !!!!

    • Jim

      When you buy a gun you have to fill out the BATF form. That gives them your name, social security number, Address, type of firearm you purchased along with its serial number. This form is in violation of the constitution as it establishes a de facto registry of guns and gun owners; thereby infringing upon our right to keep and bear arms. The way to do properly purchase guns is to buy them off the street or from individuals. I also pay cash for all ammo purchases so there’s no paper trail. Our freedom wasn’t won with a registered gun or with properly documented ammunition. Our freedom will not be maintained that way either.

    • Johnnny

      Jim, there are more of us owners than the gov even knows exists. There are millions of us. When the SHTF YOU WILL SEE. Keep the powder dry soldier.

    • 45 Bandit

      In my state, North Carolina, you have to show you’re drivers license when you buy ammo… So paying cash is a moot point here now…

    • Jack

      I retired from the military and law enforcement.I took and oath to defend the Constitution and this country from all enemies foreign and domestic. That oath had no expiration date.

      From a Native Texan: “Come And Take It”!

    • American 1st

      Hey Native Texan –

      I keep hearing rumors that Texas is going to succeed. Well, partner, if that happens Texas will be overrun with conservatives & we will protect your border so no illegal aliens will enter. I don’t think I personally know a single conservative that isn’t packing.

    • GEORGE

      With all your/our stocking up, it’s important not to forget to stock up on MRE’s, as well. There are several venues that sell box-loads of MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat). As a single individual, I only have one case at this time (30-days worth). But when the poop hits the fan and the welfare crowd is burning and looting the local grocery store, it will serve you and your family well to have several cases of these MRE’s on hand… stacked neatly, of course, next to the boxes of ammo and water. I don’t care how paranoid this all sounds. One thing that has NOT changed since the days when human actually began to keep records about humanity and society, etc…: human nature. We are a political animal, and the very same concerns that have been the impetus for the many incredible works of literature on freedom, individual liberty, personal responsibility, etc., are alive and well. To remain that way ourselves, viz., alive and well, we must be vigilant and well-prepared. It might have been different had we found ourselves in a world of sports and shopping, eating and drinking and being merry, without any fears of tyrannical controls over our lives and that of our children. But that world is NOT the one in which we find ourselves…
      Serve God, and pass the ammo. Oh and, I’ll have the beef-stroganoff MRE entree this evening, thank you, fellow-patriot.

    • Vietnam Veteran

      May I suggest learning how to “hand load” wouldn’t be a bad idea either? Don’t forget to buy the supplies to do it.

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      That can come in handy as a ‘trade’ item, provided the person who cannot load saved his brass, and has a few extras on hand. It is also good to inventory what you have on hand. You might discover you are rather short on some items, and they needs to be brought up to what you what to maintain.

      Well Wild Bill , that would just mean that it’s time to get on with the show … Right ?…

      During his campaign he stated that he needs a civilian armed force that is more powerful than the current Federal Military. Why did no single brainless lib listen to this? He is in the process of gutting the current military during his 3 years. What do you think “THE ONE” will use his new mighty army for? Get your guns and ammo now folks, 4 more years of this and we all can meet and resist together in the vast wastelands that was once America.

    • 2nd Ammendment Patriot

      Every Officer and enlisted person took an oath to obey the Constitution of the United States. They did NOT take an oath to the current person who is impersonating the president. Any military personell ordered to arrest or detain a citizen can disobey the order because it is an ILLEGAL order. Time for everyone to join the Oathkeepers. I am a former Infantry Officer and also an Oathkeeper. NOT ON MY WATCH!

I am pretty sure that there is a chain of command and your determination to support the Constitution Of The United States might be frowned upon by wearers of scrambled eggs.

    • ed

      if it comes down to that then you need to scramble the eggs with a 45 or 30-30 308 or what ever you have handy frag will work too

    • Jim

      I seem to remember a little bed time story my dad used to tell me about Vietnam. You see, when he was there a lot of those scambled eggs wearers had the misfortune of getting shot in the back of the head by the troops they were “leading”. Judging by some of the youngsters in today’s military and their attitudes, don’t think it won’t happen again.

    • Johnnny

      Yeah, if this bastard in chief got assassinated we would end up with another holiday. Please don’t kill him, DEFEAT THE BASTARD IN THE ELECTION, or we are toast. God bless America.

    • Jack

      I have family and friends still in the military, there is alot of talk about this and I am hearing that they understand and will not follow an illegal order, per the UCMJ. The idiots in DC need to understand that the military taught some folks some really bad stuff. These folks have not forgotten it and I am sure they have kept up with the new stuff also.

      Ok you guys got me confused, I’ve been in the Military life longer than most have been alive, are you referring to medals on uniform with the scrambled eggs thing? It has always been called “tossed salad”, for about 100+ years. But it’s ok to call it what ever you want, just wanted to know.

    • Asa Christian

      I’m an older fellow who had my first .22 when I was 14. No-one taught me safety, no-one taught me how to shoot, and no-one taught me how to clean my rifle. In those days, people were responsible. I and 5 or 6 other kids in the neighborhood would take our rifles down to the woods and shoot on a regular basis. No-one ever got hurt. No-one ever did anything stupid. And no-one ever had an accident. I took my kids out shooting when they were very young and emphasized safety and accuracy. I now have a career Marine son who served 4 tours in Iraq. He’s a boots on the ground, bust ‘em in the head fighting man who led his troops through an endless string of missions in some of the worst places you can imagine. He is now a Major. I remember his once thanking me for teaching him about firearms and how to shoot when he was young. He said that too many of his young troops come into the service knowing nothing about firearms, and are expected in a short period of time to develop enough proficiency to protect themselves and prevail over an enemy. With his level of confort with firearms (and the Grace of God) he made it through and is now home. He will be retiring after 20 because of the ‘rules of engagement’ and ‘political correctness’ imposed by our non-military beauracrats and politicians. He is certainly the kind of guy I want on my team. And BTW, he is a conservative! God Bless America, our Constitution, and our way of life.

  • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael

    I don’t know the exact amount of legal gun owners in the United States, but I do know that it’s in the millions, and it seems like more and more people are buying guns and ammo everyday. To me this is a good thing as long as they become a responsible gun owner. I and all my friends have been gun owners for many years. For me it has been over 45 years. I am not a hunter, but I enjoy my guns at the gun range and the trap range. But what both older gun owners and the new gun owners have got to do if they are afraid of Obama getting back in, or any other anti-gun politician is to make sure that they get to the voting booths on election day and only vote for gun friendly politicians. They should all join a pro-gun organization like the NRA, and their are others, to help keep our gun freedoms. So all you gun owners, make sure that you get out and vote in November, and get this guy out of our hair once and for all. Because just sitting around and complaining about it is not going to cut it any longer. There are a few million of us. And if we all get out to vote against any anti-gun politician, then we may just have a chance for them to finally get the message that we mean business. STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM OUR 2nd AMENDMENT RIGHTS. Or you will be the next to go. There is strength in numbers. So lets use them.

Not small potatoes but those who are so inclined should promote gun ownership and safety to increase our margin of … error.

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      I know what you’re talking about. If memory serves me (and sometimes it doesn’t), during WW1 the German Army had a Mauser pistol that had a select fire lever on it. The pistol was referred to as a “machine-pistol.” You ran through ammunition pretty fast, and the pistol was rather slow ion loading. I wouldn’t want it in a combat situation. I would like one as a collector (semi-auto only). I almost acquired one at a show, but backed off because I didn’t know what the internal mechanical condition was. Eventually, I’ll find one.

    • Rustytruck

      Patriot, an assault pistol is like a Mac 10, or an Uzi.

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      I know. That’s what they are today, but the ‘Mauser Broomhandle’ was different than those of today. They look like the standard Mauser pistol, but have that automatic function. They also had a shoulder-stock attachment (some semi-autos did too). I’m not arguing about what there is today. That Mauser was used, but most likely was rather clumsy. That may be why it didn’t carry forward very far.

    FWIW, before Obamination was elected (by the idiots who voted for him), the number of gun-owners in the U.S. was thought to be ~172 million. Bet it’s considerably higher, now that the Bummer set off the panic buying.
    Still, don’t rest on your laurels. They’ve succeeded in driving up the cost of guns and ammo exponentially, and it ain’t over, yet. Just because you and I say, “They’ll never get my guns, by xxx!”, doesn’t mean that “They” can’t make it damned miserable for all of us.

      I’m with you Grizzly, I too am a disabled Vietnam Vet, 2 clicks in country, ’68-’69. Also did time down South American way,& certain parts of Asia, my Oath is solid. I will never give up my country. I don’t know if the younger folks know what the Militia is all about but as stated by Japanese and Chinese rulers, American Militia is without a doubt the largest force on the planet. There is no other comparison to the sheer size of it. Without the Militia Washington could not have won our Revolution. I am proud to say that and to say when needed, they came thru. I’m sure we would band together again, our young men and women in uniform continues to impress me when I get the chance to talk with them. Honorable, proud, professional, and smart. I’m am also sure that if it came down to our military having to fight with their own countrymen, they would tell Obama where to stick it and side with America. After all he’s not following the Constitution, they are, we are. I believe we’d have our military back with us. We that wore the uniform, and those that still do, grew up here, have family here, this is home. How could anyone justify to themselves standing against their own heritage? I think they will only follow orders do far and then tell Obama to pack it. I know I would and you would and all the other Vets here would. It feels like we’ve all reached a point of “No More!” A line in the sand, I will not move anymore! I do feel it’s coming.

    receiving numerous stories in east Africa-I think all Americans need all the above to continue playing this game or not.

    If we lose the Second ammendment, the citizens would be at the mercy of the tyrant currently in power. I give a few examples: Russia, China, Iran, Libya and Syria (where tyranny is hereditary and is not unique). At this very minute the Armed Fuezas are killing the people in Syria the same as “rats”, and there a citizen is worth NOTHING ….

      LET PUT TO YOU THIS WAY IF WE LOSE THE SECOND AMMENDMENT AND DON’T FIGHT AS A PEOPLE AND USE THE GUNS AND RIFLES WE HAVE THAN WE DON’T DESERVE ARE FREEDOM.IN FACT WE SHOULD NOT BE PUTTING UP WITH THIS CRAP NOW.I WONDER HOW MUCH LONGER THE PEOPLE WILL PUT-UP WITH THIS CRAP BEFORE A CIVIL BRAKES OUT.I WONDER?

    By the government’s own estimatem there are over 100 million gun owners in the U.S. It would be a near impossiblility to take them if we all just said “hell no”. It would be time to take a page from the lib’s favorite book, aka THE BIBLE OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE by Martin Luther King and Jesse Jackson.

    Consider this vis a vis defensive/survival firearms. A close friend, who has been involved in hundreds of autopsies claims that the ubiquitous .22 Long Rifle is plenty effective when used by someone who aims at, and hits, the right spots. Unless you contemplate a lot of long range encounters, a .22 with a few 500 round bricks of ammo,and a 20 GA with slugs, 000 buck and/or BB shot is a cheap, effective way to go. Even the smaller members of the family can be pretty comfortable with these. No matter what you choose, just be sure that you actually know how to hit what you aim at. One advantage of the .22 is that ammo is still cheap enough that the average guy can afford to shoot enough to become proficcient. This isn’t the case with much of the center fire ammo pushing a 50 cents to a buck a round now.

    My experience at the range tells me that about 75% of the gun owners, especially the newer ones, might have a problem even hitting the ground, and even more so with a hand gun.

      I took a history course in 1962 and was required to read “Rise And Fall of the Third Reich”. As I watch today’s events unfold, I am amazed at how they parallel the history portrayed in that book!!!!!!!!!!!
      Of course, who reads today? There are far more interesting things to watch on TV; American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, and Biggest Loser.

    • GEORGE

      Who am I?

      …..I was born in one country, raised in another.

      …..My father was born in another country.

      …..I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women.

      …..I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me..

      …..My mother died at an early age from cancer.

      …..Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

      …..My birth records were sketchy and no one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

      …..I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs & didn’t follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.

      …..I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.

      …..That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and I embarked on a new career.

      …..I wrote a book about my struggles growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.

      …..I became active in local politics in my 30’s then with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s. They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything. That reinforced my conceit.

      …..I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization. Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

      …..I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

      …..At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign policy. I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunity to bash my country.

      …..But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country’s economy. I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better and every poor person would be fed & housed for free.

      …..I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess. It was the free market, banks & corporations. I decided to start making citizens hate them & if they were envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

      …..I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics & was able to gain widespread popular support.

      …..I knew that, if I merely offered the people ‘hope’ , together we could change our country and the world. So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities” like the Jews. My true views were not widely known & I needed to keep them unknown, until after I became my nation’s leader.

      …..I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I’m glad they didn’t.

      ….Then I became the most powerful man in the world. And the world learned the truth.

      …..Who am I???

      Adolf Hitler

      …..WHO WERE YOU THINKING OF?

    I don’t care who we put up to defeat Obama. He will have more dead man votes UNTIL we have voter ID to vote. Even then someone will make money making fake ID’s.
    Obama has the Tides foundation and George sore ass along with those drugged out takers in OWS.
    If Republicans don’t learn how to get the dead to vote ;WE LOSE.

    I started out just ‘collectin’g Colts, NOW, it’s for protection, not only from the criminals out on the steet (dont’you think it strange and weird that those we have to protect ourselves from are ‘brothers and sista’s’ to oskunko? Is that a coincidence? Now, I collect for protection and an expected assault from any black when oskunno gets his buck toothed butt, along with his angry black woman buck toothed with the big butt female and their two buck toothed off spring, OUT of the white house. Instead of the ‘Clash of the Titans” its the “Clash of the Buck Teeth” – ha! Wouldn’t THAT make a good movie? She bares her shoulders so she can cover her bit rear end! She’s a broad broad!

    Right to Bear Arms is the 2nd Amendment.
    the admin trying to abolish this right is revealing blatant communism. Everyone thought hillary was so much smarter than
    the one with the cemetary votes, but has she ever shown her colors since~!
    Don’t worry folks. REPUBLICANS ARE PRIMED TO WIN. AND WE DON’T NEED A PHONY SURVEY TO
    MAKE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. You can see for yourselves that $2 MILLION couldn’t hide the dirt. Americans are primed to CLEAN UP THE WHITE HOUSE.

    Though I am a registered Democrat, I don’t vote for party lines but who I think will do the best job of working for the people they are supposed to represent. I am armed, I am a woman. I shoot all the time with my husband and also know that we we and everybody else in this great country of ours has the right to own arms and the right to use them if necessary. I agree with the many comments on here and decided many years ago that the UN should Not be here in the USA. Business may have to be globalized but our government does NOT have to be. I thank every man and woman who has been in any branch of the armed forces for all that they have done for their country and all the US citizens, by protecting our basic human rights. Many of the fine young men I went to high school with mever made it back from Vietnam and many who made it back were never treated with the respect they deserved. Our home and property will be ready to help any and all who need it when the SHTF and want OUR country back.

    • Granny

      I thank God everyday for Democrats like you and your husband. Whether you are Democrat or Republican (as I am) we can no longer vote for the party, but must vote for the person. I like you will open my property when the time comes. I will put you and your husband in my prayers. God Bless You.

      O’s puppetmaster George Soros owns,through his maze of organizations, the largest conglomeration of weapons manufacturers in the world. He is happily collecting billions from those of us buying weapons. I’ll bet that Obama is so stupid that he doesn’t realize it. Or ir it could be an orchestrated scheme to fund Soros’ enterprises just before O declares private ownership outlawed. Soros gets the money, we get the chance to stand up to Obama.

    Defenders of America do not let them confiscate our weapons. If they should succeed in disarming us, the death of Liberty and Freedom will be assured.

    The President leads approx. 1/3rd of Americans on a mission to distroy the Republic, the Constitution, and “free will”; what will remain is communism and oppression.

    Let us not forget how he paraded around the Globe: a tyrant on display!

    Obam has every one in the country scuring to by ammo, guns, and excessories as fast as they can befor he can try and ban them. There are still reports coming out of the NRA saying that he is still trying the back dore aproch by making a treaty that would ban all semiauto guns. At least if he gets realected he will have to consider a well armed and equpied american puplic wont sit ideal wile he finishes taking our freedom.

      I agree with some of what you say but you say it in such an offensive,ignorant way that you ruin the message. When you talk that way, you give people who are trying to make up their minds on where they stand a reason not to listen to the rest of us.

  • giley

    I already have my bicycle and ride often to get in shape because Obamas’ goal is to make driving a car so expensive that you’ll have to park it. Total nonsense that drilling here at home makes no difference. Drill here and make it costly for oil companies that would purposely ship the oil or gas to China or elsewhere to make bigger profit while ignoring our needs here at home. Take care of Americans first then ship whatever is left overseas.

  • Robert Wyatt

    I am stating the obvious here but, when people are told that something may not be available in the future, they tend to purchase more than they need. I sure wish I was a fire arms manufacturer right about now..

    I agree, Obama has been more of a Gun Sales Motivator than salesman. Faced with the prospects of losing our 2nd Amendment Rights, people will buy/hoard guns on the fears they will no longer be available.

He doesnt like the way it was founded. Hes changing it one order at a time. Obama is doing exactly what he was put in office to do, bring down the nation. Instead of uplifting the poor, hes doing away with the middle class completly. Watch how he does it and see for yourself.

    With obama as president I definitely sleep close to my gun and I have been one of those Americans who has recently gone out and purchased another one. I believe in the NRA and I believe in the 2nd Amendment, thank God we have such people that are writing in to make their comments in favor that all Americans should own a gun if they so choose. Obama will never take our guns!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ridge Runner

    These comments on these illegals that say they have caught the same ones 9 0r 10 times ihat is the problem. always heard the third time was the charm.If carried back the third time in a military air craft not a expensive chartered civilian air craft and droped from 10,000 ft.there want be a fourth time.(no parachute)All these bleeding heart liberals need to put their money where their mouth is. Let them send their money to these illegal aliens in their home country and not have the working people’s tax money be used to keep these illegals up.Deport,deport,deport and let’s start with obama.Stop this wellfare abuse it is one thing to give a oerson in need help but it should never turn into continus and complete up keep for their life time.

  • Ridge Runner

    Not only does obama need to go but a lot of house cleaning in our total government needs to be done.When any body be it gov or who ever pull any thing like this bunch of out laws have done in the name of upholding the law there needs to be real drastic investgating done and very thourghly.These people that we the people have voted in to our gov and have put these people into the justice dept that has led to these fiasco like waco texas,oklahoma city,ruby ridge and now this gun smuggling by the fbi and the batf code named fast and furrus all of the peoplw involved should have some serious prission time.And no exceptions.

    I don’t drink and drive my auios but if i did i would get jail time for it.

    What is going on with IPatriot?  All of the previous comments are gone.  The “make Comment” dialog box doesn’t display either “log-in” name or e-mail address.  If I recall correctly, the last time that the “approval/disapproval” area worked was about February the 10th.

    I think that IPatriots’ new format is vastly inferior to the previous one.  It is not user friendly, is cumbersum; will probably cause a loss in participation.
