Thousands Flocking to Gun Stores and Gun Shows in Fear of Obama

Fearing that President Barack Obama is about to defy the US Constitution and start banning ownership of guns, thousands of Americans are crowding gun shows and flocking to gun stores to buy guns now before it’s too late.

In Richmond, Virginia, around a thousand people showed up Saturday for the C&E Gun Show held at the Showplace, just off the Mechanicsville Turnpike.  Crowds lined up for hundreds of yards waiting for the doors to open.  One businessman who owns a shop across from where the gun show was held commented:

“This is just a perfect example and sign that when the government starts trying to legislate new gun laws it’s going to create panic.”

Gun stores in the Louisville, KY area have also been flooded with lines of people waiting to buy guns and ammo.  Some store owners say that the demand is greater than the supplies.  Why?  Fear of the unknown and what Obama may do to implant his gun control policies.  Business owners are also concerned about their livelihood if Obama does what he has threatened to do.  They also lay part of the blame on violent video games and paintball.

The same thing is happening in South Dakota.  Michael Mooney, the owner of Southern Hills Tactical in Custer says he sold 85 assault weapons in just days.  The prices ranged from $650 to $3,000.  He says that he’s never seen sales like this before, commenting on the 2.8 million sales checked by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which was nearly a million more than the previous December.

Expo Idaho hosted a gun show this past Saturday and organizer Paul Snider said sales were so high that some people could barely walk and carry all of the guns and ammo they purchased.  Most of the people attending the gun show told reporters that they were concerned about Obama and gun control.

Another gun show opened its doors this week and pulled in thousands of eager citizens wanting to purchase guns and ammo before Obama makes them illegal.  The National Shooting Sports Foundation, which just happens to be based in Newtown, Connecticut where the Sandy Hook shootings took place, is hosting its 35th annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Foundation president Steve Sanetti said:

“Hunting and the recreational shooting sports are here to stay. And so are we.  A prerequisite to any dialogue involving our industry and its products is an honest recognition of the legitimacy of what we do and the important part of the national culture which we represent.”

I keep hearing the news report that 52% of American’s want stricter gun control laws, but I’d like to know where they are taking their polls.  If most of the polls are being taken in the large cities, then the results don’t surprise me.  Big cities are the where the liberals concentrate and where crimes committed with guns are twice the national average.  If you polled a person who makes a living breaking into people’s homes and robbing them, if they wanted tighter gun control and even a gun ban, of course they are going to say, heck yes.  They don’t want homeowners armed when they break in; it’s not healthy for them.

But when you look to the rest of America, they are against more gun control and against any effort to undermine the Second Amendment and their right to keep and bear arms.  If Obama pushes more gun control and starts banning guns, America many well see its second revolutionary war.

Did you ever see the movie Escape from New York starring Kurt Russell?  The entire city of New York had been walled off and left to the criminal elements within.  Perhaps that’s what we need to do with all of the big cities like Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Detroit and so on.  If they are the pockets of liberals and high crime, then cut them off from the rest of America, like a doctor cuts off a cancer in order to save the person.

    you see him do not remain silent, report the loony to the nearest cop. No

      The authorities already know about Obama, but, unfortunately, they are in league with him and won’t do anything to restrain the psychopathic sociopath.

  • Thomas Schear

    This tells your all you need to know about our country right now. We fear our government more than we fear almost anything else. That tells you we no longer live in a nation that is for or by the people but it is a nation for and by government and the ruling elite.

      Hilter only had to persuade the vocal majority, then those few ratted out or turned on the rest.. like the paper in New York.. liberals are the worst fascists, national socialists and would turn in their child or operant if they thought they could make progress in their agenda. and now they can.

  • jmark72

    Don’t ban guns, ban ObaMao and the liberals! Make it illegal to be a liberal – problems solved!

    • Reb Biker

      Should we just simply make it “illegal” to be a liberal, or should we go ahead and make it a capital offense? 😉

      • violater1

        Absolutely liberals are a communist cancer and the way to cancer free is to kill all Cancer Cells! Any other methodology would merely render them dormant and Gods biblical direction for war is total and complete inialation even all of their offspring! War is not a game and it is not kind! Trust me they plan to kill us in the millions of millions via starvation and you can take thay to the bank!

      Treason and sedition are capital offenses, Emperor Hussein has violated his oath daily, has aided and abetted the enemies of America illegally arming them, sending huge sums of money to the Muslim Brotherhood, avowed enemies of America. He has committed massive election fraud. He approved fast and furious and orchestrated the events of Benghazi, championed the overthrow of Egypt and Libya funding and arming the Muslim Brotherhood, avowed enemies of America……….all massive acts of treason and sedition. He must be arrested immediately by Congress. Failure to do so is Congressional treason and a violation of their oath of office, in which case the military is charged with the removal of all tyrants per the Constitution!

      • violater1

        Death to the tyrant and all of his followers and minions!!!!

  • marie

    Truth is that Obama should fear pissed off people, not the other way around! This us not a ‘kingdom’ in Africa, this is FREE America!

    • Eclark

      That is a lesson he will soon learn i think.

    • violater1

      I am sorry to inform you of this but the use of the term Free America is now an Oxymoron! It will require bloodshed to get back to our freedoms!

      • marie

        That is the sad reality:( free America ended about 4 years ago

    With only 7 rounds in a magazine every shot needs to count. No more body mass shots as per training. Only head shots. Congrats you just made more deaf people Obama and cuomo. Even tho they are criminals

  • Vince

    If you look at the number of us citizens in America something like 300million
    And the number of deaths do to guns it’s less than a quarter of one percent 0.025 if total population yet the media would like to have I think u can’t leave Ur home
    I don’t know about any one else but I’m soooo sooo tired of the bull the lying the corruption. The spin. And the exaggeration for propaganda purposes
    Yet the real i issues they avoid like running the country on a budget and stop spending
    Cut waste reduce and eliminate failed programs
    There should be no repub or dem it should be what’s really right for the people and what the people really want not wgat a politician needs to do to get a vote

  • 2War Abn Vet

    sometimes wonder if government pulls this crap just to drive gun prices up. It
    happened when they were pushing the 1994 “Assault Weapons” Ban, and
    again just after Obama’s first election. In fact, in late ’08 – early ’09 the
    entire stock of ARs quickly sold out, and were on back order for months. You
    can see that it’s happening all over again today.

    It turns out that government activity intended to subserviate American citizens
    is the best possible incentive for gun sales.

  • Thom Raasio

    The 74 MILLION ARMED CITIZENS (hunters) in America do NOT FEAR OBAMA!!!!!
    They FEAR having to go to WAR against our OWN SONS AND DAUGHTERS. We don’t want to have to do that. But our SONS AND DAUGHTERS who have joined the Military forces or Police forces have to make a choice…………ARE YOU REAL AMERICANS and want the America your PARENTS PROVIDED FOR YOU or have you become SO BLIND……..SO STUPID……….SO BALLESS……….that you will NOT uphold your OATH and STAND TOGETHER and turn those WEAPONS We The People bought and paid for and then HIRED YOU to DEFEND US and the CONSTITUTION believing you weren’t LYING to us when you took that OATH.

    • Gary Jones

      Thom Raasio, You will not have to worry about soldiers turning their weapons on family or friends. Obama has already showed his hand, he would have to use NATO soldiers because our military has been fighting tyrants and tyranny in foreign countries over the last 10 years. Thom Raasio, I took an oath to my country in ’69 and an oath to protect and to serve in ’85 as a law officer. I would never follow an order that is unconstitutional or that is against the law. As long as the people do not panic and they use commonsense there’s nothing to fear. I have old and young friends serving and who have served but have commented that whats happening in this administration is bazaar. Law officers don’t see law abiding citizens as a threat, they know the criminals are the problem. The police chiefs, mayors, judges, states attorneys that are advocating laws other than Constitutional laws are the high crime areas are in a panic but can’t find the light switch . Obama, may get his way with bullying Congress and the Senate but he will never succeed at bullying the American People. The sign of losing is the increase in gun sales that he has touched a raw never. Most of this propaganda is how Obama and the politicians in WDC play up conspiracy theories to avoid working and solving the real problems. If you believe anything coming out of the WDC circus, then you need to think as far back in politics as you have knowledge of and remember both sides lie, distort the facts, pushing the fear button and pitting citizens against citizens. Buy your guns, ammo, large clips, re-loaders but make sure you know how to handle them safely and are efficient with all that you own. Apply for a concealed carry permit so that your not breaking the law by carrying illegally. My disagreement is that as Americans we have to register, have a firearms card to buy ammo but illegals can cross the borders without documentation and Obama doesn’t uphold his oath of office.

      • ArmyCombatVet

        One correction to Rassio……….there are actually 120 million gun owners and climbing! Five million more guns were purchased in the last two months!

      • Eclark

        When U.N. soldiers come that will be the turning point in this country. I for will not lay down and play dead. I will stand up for our rights and constitution. There will be Blue hats on the ground in piles.

    I don’t believe it is “fear.” I believe it is people wanting to “preserve our rights.” There are more of “us” than there are of “them.”

  • gbandy

    This story is so true. In my neighborhood several people have bought guns who never owned them before. All are attending classes and have stockpiled ammo. I guess one thing Obama did do is make gun ownership a real desire since his election. People are afraid of what is going to happen next with this regime in power. They all feel much the same as the people did when Stalin took over. By the way just try and buy some 223’s cannot find even on the Internet.

    ***”Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their “SWORDS, AND EVERY OTHER TERRIBLE IMPLEMENT OF THE SOLDIER”, (MY BOLD) are the birthright of an American…[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”
    –Tenche Coxe, an American political economist and a delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
    Then there are politicians who insist in taking our Constitution out of context of time and original meaning. Once again, James Madison warned us against this.
    “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”
    Second Amendment:
    “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 INFRINDGED.”
    Arms, in the context and time when our Constitution was written meant the usual arms carried by militia members, everyday citizens or light infantry in the Continental Army. Many of these arms were supplied by their owners for militia duty and were personal weapons initially used for hunting or home defense. They came in all types and calibers; from a 30 cal. squirrel rifle to a 75 cal. smooth bore musket, pistols and shotguns of all types, calibers and gauges. They also included a huge variety of other arms including: knives of every conceivable shape and size, bayonets and swords. Many early citizens also carried tomahawks.
    Attempts to control the type and or caliber of arms Americans’ can possess are absolutely against The Constitution and the Second Amendment as it was written and intended. By the supreme law of the land (The Constitution), an American citizen should be able to keep and bear any weapon now used individually by our light infantry soldiers.
    Larger weapons such as cannon and mortars that could not be carried by an individual soldier or required more than one person to operate were considered to be “ordinance” and were not defined as “arms”.
    Words have meanings! If those meanings are bastardized all becomes chaos.
    “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.” James Madison
    Definition of to KEEP: to hold or retain in one’s possession; hold as one’s own.
    Definition of to BEAR: to carry, transmit, transport, have a characteristic of and exhibit.
    Definition of INFRINGE: to “encroach” upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another.
    THIS IS THE WORD MOST FORGETEN……INFRINGE!!!!! Read the meaning!!!
    Definition of INFRINGE/ENCROACH…….. 1: to enter by gradual steps or by stealth into the possessions or rights of another. 2: to advance beyond the usual or proper limits
    Why is this so hard to understand? The meanings of the words in the Second Amendment have not changed since the amendment was ratified.
    I am not aware of the Second Amendment being repealed or amended.
    In reference to arms control by the states; the Fourteenth Amendment Section .1. is crystal clear.
    Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; (My emphasis) nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
    Many in politics from the legislative, administrative branches and or judges cite “precedent” as a justification for the violations of our rights as guaranteed in The Constitution of These United States of America. Precedent only describes what has been done and gotten away with, not if it was done in compliance with the supreme law of the land or in accordance with the oath of office to uphold The Constitution.

    • catman

      I have read the Constitution several times and cannot find the word “precedent” mentioned anywhere. Maybe this “Constitutional Scholar” (read obumass here) should re-read the Constitution and absorb it’s true meanings. Not those he wants to believe.

      • tommie3761

        catman, was the submission by reggiec too long for you and so you just read the last paragraph? Nowhere in his statement does he mention that the word “precedent” is part of the Constitution. Only that politicians and legalists try to use “precedent” to argue their liberal case when trying to negate the law as per the Constitution. The same legalists could argue that holding American citizens in detention camps is legal since the Federal Government set a “precedent”, (unchallenged in court), when tens of thousands of Japanese Americans were placed in such camps during WW2, without trial or evidence of any kind to justify their actions.

        The entire content of reggiec’s posting was FOR our constitutional rights to not be violated. How then, do you justify accusing him of being a “Constitutional Scholar” (read obumass here). When in fact he is correct and you appear too lazy to have even read his complete posting.

  • Beepster

    One thing no one mentions is control of manufacturing of arms/ammo. George Soros, Soetoro’s owner, hapens to own about 75-80% of the manufacturing, and all he has to do is cut off production, except to the gov’ment. Look up who owns Remington and all it’s subsideries – George Soros. It would be better to remove him than Soetoro – although he’s a close second!!

  • MSGT Lucy Garza USMC (RET)

    Ovomit just doesn’t get it. Why the hell do people want guns? They fear the tyrannical government that Ovomit wants to push onto the people, and they want something to fight back with. At the least, they want a fighting chance.

    Believe me Obama does not like how gun sales are breaking records, he knows it’s because no one trusts him with his progressive policies.
