Election causes gun sales to boom

I think that these people have good reason to worry:

Gun sales are going boom around the country as gun owners and gun advocates brace for a potential Democrat in the White House for the first time in almost 10 years.

Democrats, meanwhile, say there's no reason to worry that presidential hopeful Barack Obama would attempt to curtail access to most guns, though that hasn't stopped the buying spree.

"You'd be surprised," said Jeff Mercer, manager of George's Pawn and Gun Shop on High Street. "It's people of all races, too. People are scared."

Across town at The Gun Doctor and More on Glencrest Lane, owner Bob Godell said he has also noticed a similar trend.

"We call it the Obama factor. People are very concerned that if a Democrat is elected they will see more restrictions on handguns and assault rifles." Godell said. "I think as a result of that we have seen steady handgun sales, and there's been an increase in the sale of assault rifles like AK-47s, as well." . . . .

I frankly have a related concern. If it is a close election and McCain wins, do any of us really believe that an army of democratic operatives won't be out in full force claiming, "The republicans stole another one!"

Like with the Iraq war, they have managed to rewrite history. Democrats believe that if the US Supreme Court had not halted the recount, Gore would have won. This is false of course. Had the entire state been recounted(something Gore never asked for), he would have won but Gore only asked for a recount in select counties and regardless of the standard employed in recounting the ballots in those specific counties, Bush would still have won. Thus, the US Supreme Court cut short a process that would have resulted in a Bush victory anyhow. Very few democrats understand this.

At any rate, how do you think a close McCain vistory is going to play in the inner city with the Jacksons and Sharptons and their useful idiots stoking those dishonest flames?

Do you think the government is going to protect you in the event violence breaks out?

The article mentions the AK-47, without mentioning that they are probably Semi-Auto AK-47 look alikes.
