    in past years the gun shops i visit was mostly hunting gear, shotguns-deer rifles etc. That has seriously changed, black rifle sections have pretty much taken over some shops and prices have shot up but they still fly off the shelves.

    How about Yes, and a follow up question?

    What does that have to do with the price of tea in china?



    Yes he signed one, yes, there are two different ways to look at it, and no I do not like him for it. That and Obamacare oops, I mean Romneycare are some pretty good reasons to not like the guy.

    I get it. Looks like I am going to vote for Paul as a protest vote in the Texas Primary, since everyone else has dropped out. We'll see how that goes.

    But in the General, I'll be voting, and for one of the viable candidates. If that only includes Barry and Mittens, I'll vote for Mittens. Not a perfect, or even fair scenario, but if it's the best you can get, it's the best you can get.

    Unless you have a reasonable alternative option. I'd love to hear it if you do.

    I go in a local gun shop to look and talk to shooting buds. The last 5 days I was in someone was buying a self/home defense gun. I only stay about 15 minutes. Squirrel rifles and quail shot guns are not movers.

    Then I take it you don't trust Paul? He's done this numerous times in his political career....Supports Reagan, doesn't support Reagan, is a Republican, now a Liberaltarian, back to a Republican, supports illegal immigration bills, then suddenly doesn't support it as a border fence would "keep Americans in."

    Holds hands with Barney Frank, one of the most extreme Socialist liberals in history, hires 14 "experts" to draft his and Franks "anti-war" bill, with 13 of the "experts" paid for by George Soros and moveon.org, etc.

    I could write a 300 page novel on Paul's flip-flopping, and "changing his mind as the political wind blows." :faint:

    Everyone's getting stocked up for the Zimmerman acquittal celebrations, I see.

    Yep. First it was " If Obama gets elected he is going to ban/take our guns." Didn't happen.
    Now it is, " If Obama gets a second term he will have nothing to lose, and he will ban/take our guns."

    Fortunately, subversive actions such as OF&F blew up in Obama and Holder's faces. SCOTUS decisions in D.C. and Chicago didn't help (though the FedGov did what it could to lend assistance to the antis).

    Clearly, leftist agenda items such as nationalized health care, promoting racial and socioeconomic divisiveness, crushingly regulating non-favored industries into extinction, etc., have been occupying most of Obama's time this term.

    No doubt. If they had been able to scream from the rooftops about all the black rifles pouring into mexico, there may have been real trouble.

    Which is why a known bad is better than a probably bad.

    It's no longer a Paul vs Romney debate, guys. It has become a Romney vs Obama debate. I don't like it either, but it wasn't left up to me. Pretending there is no difference between the two is a primary commercial and disingenuous.

    Pick a side. Pick the better side, wherever you feel that side is.
