Get ‘Em While You Can: Gun Sales SURGE as Obama Pushes for More Gun Control

My local gun store has a cut-out of Barack Obama and a sign next to him reading “Gun Salesman of the Year.” No, Obama is not filling-out the paperwork and selling the guns, but he is helping tremendously in driving the need for guns as he spews forth his tyrannical rhetoric.

In fact, ever since Obama’s Sunday address where he remained weak on global terrorism but hawkish on clamping-down on the constitutional rights of Americans, gun sales have surged.

Clay Ausley, the owner of Fuquay Gun & Gold in North Carolina, revealed,

“With Obama making the statement that he wants to change legislation, get it to where its harder for the public to purchase high-capacity firearms, folks are going to start running to get what they can get ,” he said. “The heaviest hitters have been ammunition and high-capacity magazines. The AR mags, the AK mags – they have been flowing out of here like water.”

Gun sales are being spurred by people fearful of what will be banned in future weeks, months or years. Obama, throughout his presidency, has maintained a low regard for the constitutional limitations of his office. From issuing executive orders to grant amnesty to millions of illegals to releasing terrorists without congressional approval to regain an American traitor, Obama has not been bashful about striking provisions of the Constitution that are inconvenient to him or that stand in the way of his instituting his perverse brand of social justice.

With that thought in mind, many Americans are stocking-up while they can before America’s first dictator can further infringe upon the Second Amendment.

In fact, not only did Obama’s speech spur an uptick in gun sales, but this year’s Black Friday saw enough firearms sold in America to arm the entire United States Marines and two whole divisions of the Army.

For patriots, this is good news; for those who fear an armed populace, such as governmental tyrants, this is disturbing news.

2015 is looking to be a record-setting year for gun sales and that is thanks, in no small part, to the anti-Second Amendment hysterics that continue to assert that in order to be ore safe, Americans should feel compelled to relinquish the very right that makes all others possible.

Though it cannot rightfully be called a “poll,” by looking at the sales trends, it seems that the American people have made their choices clear. We are rejecting the calls for limiting our freedoms.
