    I wouldn't be surprised, where we are for Christmas, the Midwest, people are buying ammunition in crate fulls. They are all saying President Obama and Congress are going to take it all away soon. There is a sense of panic in their actions. It's weird.

    Please. We heard the same sort of rhetoric when O was elected. People need to calm down and vote him out of office if they are really afraid.

    Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and a couple of other right wing media extremists are behind the lie that the Obama administration is plotting with the UN to take guns away from Americans. It is a patently false claim, given not only the fact that there has been absolutely no move to do so for four years, but it has certainly helped out the corporate interests who manufacture and sell guns and ammunition.

    That there needs to be enforcement of the more than 20,000 gun control laws already on the books is a given. Most of the rest of the industrialized world, countries such as Australia, Japan, France, Germany, England, the Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland...... have figured this out, in some cases, like Australia and Switzerland, without major restrictions on actual gun ownership. But the idiocy and paranoia that people demonstrate when rumors go around without substantiation, well, thank goodness I'm not wasting my money on it, and perhaps it will help out the economy.

    "You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them," Obama, an Illinois senator, said.

    "And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations," he said.

    It's deja vu folks. Early 90s before the 'assault weapons ban came into effect 'ten years worth of 'assault weapons' were sold in one year'.

    Nothing new here.

    You all are missing the point.
    The media is, of course, in Obama's pocket. MSN is blatantly biased and antigun. This is shown in their reporting. For example....the article that is posted in the OP. They are dishonest.


    Please stay on topic.

    I am on topic. It was zactly same way early 90s. The media behaved in the same manner, the dumb politicians passed the gun control bill(s) then those same dumb politicians got voted out out 94 mid term elections, and trust me, they haven't forgotten that.

    Nothing new here except that notice how they're avoiding the term 'gun control' now by using the terms 'firearms reform' and 'gun policy'?

    Right again...

    ...he may well be eating those words, sooner than later!


    I can hear the marching of the UN troops, here to help America regain control of a violent time in her history. Everytime I go through one of those federally funded road blocks to check for DUIS, liceenses, current inruance and other things, I realize how easy it would be to limit and control our roadways. The locals are getting good practice at roadblocks. :wavey:

    Errm, in the last year the UN conference on small arms trafficking did try to pass resolutions which would have called for the US to violate the 2nd Amendment.

    Please.

    There is no option available to "vote him out of office".

    He will be out of office in 4 years. Since he will not be in office beyond this upcoming term, he does not have the restraint that held him back until November of this year. The first 4 years were used to setup the framework to accomplish his goals during the second 4.
