Keep up the good work

While former President Barack Obama without a doubt should have gotten a “Best Salesman” award from the gun industry, the Democrats’ 2020 presidential hopefuls are doing even better.

While Obama’s gun control urges were perceived as real Second Amendment threats, the gaggle of presidential wannabes and their unabashed anti-gun stands pushed gun sales up in October by 10 percent, compared to last year. It was, by the way, the third straight month of increased sales.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting (SAAF) reports there were 1.1 million gun sales in October, compared with 1 million last October.

It is more than a little amazing what the Democrats apparently do not, or are unwilling, to see: The more they push for onerous gun control, the more guns are snapped up by the public. Is it possible the average American does not support their drive to further control guns? Clearly they are buying them because they want them, and they want them before the Left can block such purchases.

It should be noted gun sales dropped after President Donald Trump was elected because the public did not see him as a threat to gun rights. With Democrat presidential candidates spouting off about gun bans, even outright confiscation, the angst increases – and sales are on the rise.

Second Amendment proponents have a message for the candidates: Keep up the good work guys.

    The last 25 years saw a crime wave of epic proportions in the streets of America. Before the Rap music gang cultural crime wave, Americans hardly ever heard of car jackings, home invasions, and all the rest of it, that through the music has been exported worldwide, all with the blessings of the American left.

    Obama and Holder wanted to protect their “homies” and hold them blameless all under the ruse of racism and called the cops out on just doing their job. Obama was always quick to blame the cops no matter how innocent, (remember the apologetic beer summit?) When you are in a war zone, mistakes happen and adrenalin flows.

    This pop culture of crime (that many want to ignore) 300 homicides per year in small Baltimore alone, is the problem, not guns.

    The political Left and Crime proceed hand-in-hand, and always have. The best we can hope for, is the people recognize that fact, and make rational choices going forward.
