....and Ladies. I want you all to consider something. Is the "panic" and run-up on guns simply and only a reaction to what the public anticipates concerning the government's intention to ban certain firearms? Or is something else in play here? Is it possible that the People instinctively sense that things in society are just, well, a bit dangerous? I always believed that most people have a "sense", so to speak, maybe an intuition, that allows them to prepare for some event. Is it possible that the run-up on firearms is in reaction to what many sense to be some hard times to come? And I'm not talking Chinese invasion here, or even armed oppression by our beloved and giving government (ahh-hemmm). What I speak of it violence by some of our fellow "Americans". I speak of the Bill Ayers of the country, the OWS crowd, the many, many avowed Marxists within our borders. Will they begin a stronger, more direct effort at waging a sort of "warm" war against the rest of the country. They have politicians in place that gladly serve them. I don't know the answer, but give it a bit of thought. In the mean time, I suggest something. We're all about firearms on this forum. But no firearm is as effective as it should be if its user is not in good physical shape. We don't need to be in navy SEAL shape, but we should all be in good enough shape to at least run a few miles. I suggest that we all look at ourselves and start shaping up. I see way too many people at gun shows who are just terribly overweight. Can't do much with 50 pounds of gelatin around your waist! Good luck!
