Gun Sales Jump in Liberal States

Washington on gun ownership[

CNS reports that according to FBI statistics gun sales in the US, as measured by background check requests, increased by over 19% in 2012. Only two states, Utah and Iowa, reported a decreased number of requests.

Washington D.C. saw the largest year-to-year increase with sales jumping 49.7%. Wisconsin followed with 45.4%, then New Jersey with 42.5%, New Hampshire with 40.9% and Rhode Island with 39.3%

Interesting that the five largest increases came from areas which voted for Obama in last November’s election. Which goes to show that with gun control, as with so many other areas of public policy, liberals are essentially “do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do” hypocrites.

      The data is conclusive, more guns do NOT equate to a more dangerous society.

    Given the general attitude blue state residients have, will those blue state residents
    1) agree to have their life information published online?
    2) simply hand over the weapons they have just purchased when they are deemed illegal by their legislatures?
    2a) explain why they purchased them in the first place if only government, police and military are meant to have semi-auto handguns/rifles
    3) agree to have the cartridges taxed?
    4) have training, or access to training to use the firearms they just purchased?
    5) agree that they are now considered (by certain congresscritters) mentally unstable (and by the way, because they are now ‘mentally unstable’ they cannot own a firearm…see 2 above)

    So based on Demographic data that has been accumulated over decades……If Blue states are purchasing more guns ………….Cannot one presume Obama is now arming a much higher percent of criminals, that previously were not armed.

    Not all Dem’cats are criminals……but the vast majority of criminals are Dem’cats.

    …….basically an internal Fast and Furious program, but at least the criminals are buying them vrs. stealing them?….which helps the economy?

    Soviet marxist political correct usurption of the patriarchail rule of law.

    Patriarchail rule of law be damned….
    Soviet politicly correct matriarchail steering committee
    majority concensus is the elitists law of the land…
    They have completely usurpt the Constituion for
    the soviet central planning social justice PC form of liberalism.

    President Obama has indicated that he won’t stick his neck out to push for gun control, but instead will let public opinion drive the debate.
    In an interview with David Gregory on “Meet the Press,” Obama said he would await the recommendations of his gun control task force and present a package of gun control proposals. But he said, “We’re not going to get this done unless the American people decide it’s important and so this is not something that’s going to be a matter of me spending political capital.”
    He continued, “One of the things that you learn, having now been in this office four years, is the old adage of Abraham Lincoln’s that with public opinion there’s nothing you can’t do, and without public opinion, there’s very little you can get done in this town.”
    It was telling that when asked about his priorities, Obama didn’t mention gun control. He named immigration as his top priority, followed by more infrastructure spending and environmentally-friendly energy policies. Gregory is the one who brought up gun control.

    Even the bluest of the liberal states has a lot of conservatives. Also, remember that a vote for a politician does not mean one approves of everything he stands for. I voted for Romney and I think he would have been a disaster for this country…just not as big a disaster as Obama.

    The parties want ideological purity. Intelligent people are a lot more complex than that.

    Kill it and grill it…
    Uncle Ted wants to lend Biden a hand…..

    You will find in your assessment that all of the massacres have occurred in gun-free zones. What gun-free zones create is an environment where good people are unarmed and virtually defenseless against an unstable person intent on committing mass murder. Gun-free zones are modern killing fields. I implore you to recommend that Congress pass a law to ban gun-free zones immediately.

    Just like your full-time, armed security detail, qualified citizens with authorized, legal concealed-carry permits should be able to carry weapons virtually everywhere to protect themselves, their loved ones and innocents.

    Vindication: Egyptian Magazine exposes Muslim Brotherhood Infiltration of Obama Administration

    Once again, Geller (and the few brave truth tellers) are proven right. And the silent enemedia, yet again, are shown to be the quislings snakes that they are.
    An Egyptian magazine is reporting about Muslim Brotherhood infilitration of the Obama administration at the highest level. This Egyptian magazine names Rashad Hussain, exposed as Brotherhood at Atlas in January 2010; Arif Alikhan, exposed at Atlas here back in Janary 2009; and the others, Salam al-Marayati; Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, all profiled at Atlas many times. Since June 2009, when Obama invited the then-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood to his submission speech in Cairo, his subversive support of the Islamic supremacist organization has wreaked havoc on freedom-loving peoples the world over.
    Americans may very well be painfully clueless about this fatal subterfuge, but it is devastating, really. Look at the world before Obama and after he took the mantle of power (Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, etc.).
