Two Cheers for Increased Gun Sales

Yes, only two. I know that, since I have been certified as a Right Wing Nut Job Gun Nut by the eminent expert Breitbart Unmasked, the Gentle Reader would expect a resounding three cheers from me when gun sales are up. Alas, it is not so.

One cheer comes from the boost to the economy from these sales.

The second comes from more folks choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

The third cheer is held back because of the reason many first time gun buyers are wanting a gun. Some no longer trust the government to protect them from crime. Others simply no longer trust the government. Still others fear a coming disruption in society. None of these reasons strike me as cheerful.

  1. The reason my wife wants a gun so she can shoot things. That and home defense. But mostly to shoot things.

    I think that deserves a cheer.


  2. I for one fall into the category of “All of the above” One can not depend on the police to protect us, The Giverment is not our ally, and with the way things are going, it will not be long before the excrement strikes the whirling ventilation device. I will hunt for my food when the neighborhood Kroger store is looted. I am prepared to smoke, and/or salt my harvest when the power goes out. Limited water is available from a nearby spring, and my neighborhood has the proverbial river running through it.
