« on: October 15, 2020, 09:28:36 PM »
An unteresting article from Fox News.  Now, I hope all the new buyers vote Republican to save the guns they just bought.

I heard the other night, that as high as 30% of those that attend Trump rallies are not even registered.  Boggles the mind.  That probably applies to those new gun owners, SAD!!!  I am 78 and have never not voted.   The last time I voted Dem was slick willie's 1st run.  Before he was inaugurated, I realized I bought a lemon.

Just Bill,
I am 76, and I was at one time and Independent but many years ago I became a Republican for Reagan, when I figured out the Democrats were heading to Socialism which leads to Communism.
I vowel to never vote anything but the straight Republican ticket, as there is no such thing as a moderate Democrat. They are subversives.

I hear ammo is getting mighty scarce also.

According to article in DSN yesterday, there has been over 12,400,000 guns sold between Jan and July 2020 in USA.
That's a bunch. Considering there were 13,000,000 sold in the entire year of 2019.

For years, they've been saying there are "three hundred million guns" in civilian hands.
Around 2016, someone (I forget who) looked at the background check figures... and the new estimate was over 400,000.

Now, they're selling at a rate of 25 million per year. Sounds like good news for us.

One important aspect of that: A lot of the guns are being purchased by liberals, leftists, Socialists, middle aged ladies who voted for the Hildebeest, and other terrible folks... like me.
They are finally realizing that they need an unfiltered Second Amendment... like I realized a long time ago.
Be nice to them. Be patient with them. They are the future hope of the Second Amendment: a nation in which, no matter who's in charge, the Bill of Rights prevails.

Unless this radical behavior in recent months has opened peoples eyes, blue Delaware could have a major gun rights fight on our hands, again.  If we lose any seats to 'them' we are likely doomed.  Like old Ben said  in 1776, "we must hang together or we will surely hang separately".

It will ONLY matter IF they change their voting habits.

Right you are Radnor.  Had a lady from New York tell me last month that she retired in Delaware partially to escape New York taxes but is voting Democrat here because Sussex County taxes are too cheap.  She was paying $14,000 a year in Nassau County NY and is paying $800 in Sussex Delaware.

Here's my dream: even if someone votes "wrong" in every way (like I do), I want them to urge their leftist candidates to support the Second Amendment... like I do.

That's just dumb.  Like asking my dog not to eat bones...  Their whole goal is to destroy the Constitution, all of it.

All the more reason to educate them on how important it is.
