Just what we need: paranoid gun owners.

Well, Pres. Obama, Sen. Feinstein, and Mayor Bloomberg can certainly take credit for one segment of the economy showing a major recovery.

I trust criminals with guns more than I trust these "enthusiasts."

I guess there is a lesson to be learned here. If you dislike the concept of guns and don't want to be surrounded by them,vote for republicans. They seem to have a better grasp on controlling the fears of the gun owning population of America. This administration has done just the opposite. Their tactics have lead to the largest ammunition and firearm shortage in the history of firearm manufacturing. It was easier to obtain firearms during WWII; when the country was mechanized for war and all of the available ammunition was being fired over seas. Our current administration has sold more guns and ammunition than just about any group I can name in our history. He is a manufacturer's dream come true. The money is simply pouring into Smith and Wesson, Glock, Sig Sauer, Springfield Armory, Bushmaster, Armalite, Remington, Browning and the list goes on and on. This does nothing but strengthen and solidify the lobby of the NRA. Gun control pushers are their own worst enemy.

I can't help but wonder how many of the rumors have been started by the gun and ammo manufacturers themselves, to help pump up their sales even more.

The NRA's plan to increase gun and ammo manufacturers profits by continually lying about looming confiscation are working quite nicely.

Since Janet Incompetano and DHS is buying billions of rounds of hollow points and also machine guns,while refusing to say why NOAA, etc. needs enough ammo for a long war, I suppose folks want to know what is going on.
