The Obama Administration is the number one threat to the nation’s gun rights advocates. In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States. In November a record 2 million guns were sold in America. This was followed up by another record in December. 2.7 million guns were sold in America in the last month of 2012.

Honest Americans Bought Enough Guns in November and December to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies

The Obama Administration is the number one threat to the nation’s gun rights advocates. In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States. In November a record 2 million guns were sold in America. This was followed up by another record in December. 2.7 million guns were sold in America in the last month of 2012.

-snip-

To put this in perspective. Chinese and Indian Standing Army Numbers:

China

- There are 2.29 active members in the Chinese Army.

India

- There are 1.13 active members in the Indian Army.

There were enough guns sold in the US in November and December to outfit each active member of the Chinese and Indian armies with a brand new gun.

It is not that WalMart is not restocking; their distribution centers are out of ammo also. The local Sporting Goods Deptartment Gal told me the Distribution Center is estimating 3 to 6 months back order on most of what she has on order.

They are also out of AR15s and Mini14s nation wide. The ARs are likely to be back ordered for up to a year.

However, it is the Chinese army that we fund through our annual debt servicing.

If it were my very old 1873 win rifle, I would look for a buyer then buy a whole armory from a private seller from the precedes.

The problem is, hussein is buying up untold numbers, too.

My husband and I and our neighbors went yesterday to a gun store near us. Out in the country and packed. We bought 2 handguns, our friend bought 1. We were limited to 2 boxes ammo per gun. While we were waiting for our background checks, I saw at least 4 rifles out the door and a couple more hand guns.

It would be interesting to know how mny weapons of all types have been inherited, passed down from father to son/daughter, or privately traded/gifted.

Or disappeared from all the gun trade-ins.

I have never owned a gun. But I am signed up for a gun class later this month. After that I am buying. I did not get interested until the talk of gun control ratcheted up. If they say I can’t have a gun, I am going to buy one. Or two. I may then take them boating.

Only if they’re buying them online and at the store. And they’ve hired a million different people to do it.

That 300 million number was correct——— about a decade ago. Since then nearly every year has been a record year for new gun production with 2012 producing over 14 million new ones. As I’ve noted before, there are more privately owned firearms in the US population than there are in the rest of the world combined, including all the other militaries. And it’s OK with me if Walmart bails from the gun bidness-—they’ve done it before and we all survived. They’ve never been serious about servicing guns, just cherry picking the market for a few popular models and do more harm than good with respect to regular gun dealers.

So, OK, start here: John Snow, Clintoon’s old treasury secretary is a big deal in Cerebus, who in turn owns Freedom Arms, and in turn Remington and Bushmaster and others. Same guy who screwed up Chrysler. I’m getting tired already. You can finish.

What is nice about a .410 cal. shotgun is that you can shoot .41 cal pistol ammo and you have no rifling in the barrel!

2.7 million gun sales in December.

There are “about” 1.5 million sworn law enforcement officers in the US.

That “roughly” equates too....every time a cop cashes a paycheck, a private citizen buys a gun.

Obama’s utopia!
