Gun Sales Going Through The Roof!!

We live out in the boonies - (not too far though only about 20-30 minutes to town or to a police station). My husband heard a sound in the middle of the night downstairs - it sounded like someone was down there - he woke up, grabbed his gun and went down to see what it was. Luckily, it wasn't anything - but it does make us feel safer out here in boonies knowing that we have a way to protect ourselves if someone evil entered our home at night.

He was talking to his friend last week about rifles - his friend had went to purchase one & come to find out there is a HUGE waiting list. Guns are selling like crazy since Obama became presidential elect.

"Sales of rifles, pistols and ammo are surging in parts of the United States...

"The day after the election, I had many more calls than usual from people looking for semi-automatic rifles," said David Greenberg, the owner of the Second Amendment Family Gun Shop, in Bisbee, Arizona, who sold out of AR-15 rifles in recent days.

"There seems to be a fear they will be banned, and it's fairly likely," he added. "Obama and Biden are driven to eliminate firearms from the face of the country."

"It's always been the liberal or Democratic agenda to restrict gun ownership," said Jim Pruett, the owner of a gun store in a Houston-area strip mall, whose sales more than tripled on the Saturday before the election to $35,000."

Now why would guns be selling like crazy when the second amendment of our constitution guarantees us this right. It states:

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

And as President-elect, Obama will take and oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" and to "bear true faith and allegiance to the same."

However, Obama has never honored that oath (he made this oath twice already), and, based on his policy proposals and objectives, he has no intention to honor it again. He seeks to change the constitution - in his own words: "break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution."

Because of this threat posed to our Constitutional rights and potentially to civil order by Obama - guns sales have been going through the roof. The more of us that are armed, the less tyranny we will have to endure. This is why our Founding Fathers wanted us to be able to have guns and insured us this right in the constitution.

One of Obama's targets is the Second Amendment.

"The Obama/Biden team vows to not only close so-called loopholes at gun shows and create other regulations such as trigger locks, but also to take guns "off the streets" by reinstating the grossly misnamed "assault weapons" ban. When was the last time you saw anyone waltzing down the street with a semi-automatic black rifle looking to make trouble? And did Obama notice the Supreme Court decision in June that involved the Second Amendment? Indeed, he did. If fact, he supported the Court's Heller decision in favor of the right to bear arms, if only out of gross political expediency.

Obama's site originally had a full anti-gun agenda, but that was wiped away along with his other promises. What was posted previously was a claim to "favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners," but by making the gun of one's choice more difficult to acquire and use, the incoming Democrats are eroding the intent of the Founding Fathers, as well as the letter of the Constitution."
