Gun Sales Spike in Fear of President Obama Getting Reelected

Post By RelatedRelated Post

You would think people would learn.

Gun sales spiked in the run up to the 2008 election because many local yokels felt that President Obama would take away their guns. He didn’t. But faced with the prospect of Obama getting reelected, or if defeated, passing anti-gun legislation during a lame duck session, second amendment fanatics are headed back to the gun store.

These largely unfounded fears have led many gun stores to proclaim Obama as the best salesman they’ve ever had.

“People are definitely scared of a president who has voted when he was a senator against guns,” Anthony Bouchard, director of the Wyoming Gun Owners Association in Cheyenne told the Wyoming Star Tribune. “If Obama gets re-elected] he’s in a lame-duck session and he can do the things he wants to do. That’s what we’re afraid of.”

This just proves that some conservatives are determined to find a way to fear a black president, even if they’re forced to fabricate reasons. The truth is, President Obama didn’t do anything on gun control during his first term, and there’s no reason to believe he’ll take a different stance if reelected.

What is it they say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? Republicans keep going out and loading up on bullets and weaponry, expecting an apocalypse ushered in by Democrats, but it never comes. You’d think, after awhile, they’d learn that those nightmarish scenarios only exist inside the walls of  their paranoid skulls.

    There is no reason to believe he’ll take a different stance if reelected? Of course there is. He won’t have to worry about re-election. What a stupid comment. What a stupid article.

  2. Fear is a terrible thing!

  3. The mystery of gun sales would disappear if [1.] Existing laws were standardized across state lines. [2.] Existing laws are applied.
    [3.] Citizenship is established with a national data base that is confirmable with Homeland Security and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives with links to local law enforcement. [4.] Transfers of firearms should be required to be registered even with the giving of gifts of guns. [5.] The implimentation of a GPS gun locator system that can track all firearms. The benefit here is that if someone gets lost in the forrest, during a hunting trip, he can be found. Thugs that steal guns can be found. Those receiving stolen property can be found. We license cars and we should license guns also. Gun education should begin in childhood in the family. It used to be that way and they were used with safety. Create solutions that heal and preserve life.

  4. Racist caucasians have created a stock pile of dangerous weapons with the intent of killing you know who! The only response from AA’s to this serious threat is to continue buying more gold teeth, tattoos, hair extensions, alcohol, tobacco products, crack and other BS. Caucasians created a fake god- a white man to whom black ppl pray to each day and night. The book associated with this fake god- the Bible instructs black ppl to “Love thy enemy” and “Slaves obey your Masters”. Black people, your enemy is planning to wage an all-out war against you and your response is to- Love and Pray for them. Black ppl, please realize you must overcome your fear of cacasians which is responsible for your paralysis to this eminent violence. The time has come for black ppl to stop being slave minded drones to this wicked nation and fake religion.

  5. Second Amendment "Fanatics"? Bet you wouldn't call supporters of the first amendment "fanatics".

    • Well, since the people that shout the loudest about 1st amendment rights are KKK marchers, Neo-Nazi's, and pornstars, I believe we have grounds to call them fanatics as well.

  6. There is a UN mandate in process to take guns from every NATO member country.These people are not crazy.There is a plan to control the populace when the economy collapse.There are also FEMA detention camps all over the country.Do your own research.

    • I don't believe it–show me some facts! A statement like that needs to be supported with facts!

    • To supply the info would take all the drama out of it.The mandate is real.
      Ask your local reps.These bastards are so blatant that they do not try to
      hide it any more.Our people need a fire lit,and reading it for yourself will
      do just that.Watch out for another incident like 911 to take some more of our imaginary rights away.As a matter of fact,contact the White house,the info is public information.They are going to stop you from
      owning firearms while they order astronomical amounts of bullets for
      themselves,IRS,DHS,FBI, check it out…..Public info.

  7. I’m black and I’m scared. People are gonna find themselves with their pants down when they’ll need o defend themselves and they can’t.

    • Don’t be scared…get your arsenal up too! There is a real storm brewing and “better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it”…with the craziness that is comin up and out if these racist and ignorant people THIS IS GONNA GET PHYSICAL!!

  8. I call this fear of a Black President. This was the same mania present in his first election to office, claiming that Obama was going to restrict gun ownership–has not happened! Will not happen. But, it should happen in some cases. These are the same folk who don't even want to have to register or do a back round check to purchase a gun. I don't see anything wrong with proper gun registration and a back ground check! Too many crazies out there not to have some kind of reasonable controls.

  9. Be ready when they come, says the black hymnal! You may have to cut back on that motorcycle,nails,rims,weave, or two hundred dollar gumshoes but its better then begging your oppressor for your life. Look at the two black boys swept out of there mothers arms, look at the mentality of the home owner. Nothing’s changed, eatch what started tomorrow!

    • Wow you guys are all crazy!!

  10. Of all the things Pres. Obama has been accused of not of is gun restrictions. I have not seen or heard any mention of gun control coming from him, even after the most recent shootings in Arizona and Colorado. The gun nuts are just that, nuts. If the gun nuts want to do something really positive, why don't they put their mouth where their money is and say something and do something about all of the shootings on campuses, at political gatherings or the worst, at the work places? None of those perpetrators have been labeled bad guys, just troubled ones.
