Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Gun Sales

Gun Sales

Tam points to a story on "Gun Sales Thriving in Uncertain Times" in the WaPo with this comment:
Say what you will about Barry...
...but the man's an even better gun salesman than Hils.
In the last 30 days (actually less) I've purchased a T/C Encore frame, ordered an assembled Bushmaster AR-15 lower (less buttstock), and going in the mail today is an order for a custom M14 to Ted Brown.

I'm also buying other stuff - reloading supplies, etc. (I purchased 11 20-round magazines for the M14 already, even though I won't have the rifle for months.) One thing I've noticed when I go into Sportsman's Warehouse or Murphy's guns (especially Murphy's) is that the gun counter is crowded. Murphy's parking lot just isn't big enough and hasn't been for a while. So the WaPo's observations are accurate even here in flyover country. Perhaps especially here in flyover country.
