So the NRA twisted the President's arm to entice him to challenge the rights of the people by going after the least used weapons in crimes...makes a lot of sense...don't you think...?

I want you to explain to me why people started buying more, stock-piling and hoarding guns and ammo after the election of Obama in 2008.
This is not new, though it has escalated since Newtown. On the day of the first Obama inauguration I happened to be in a local pawnshop and overheard a redneck at the counter say loudly as he was purchasing a large quantity of ammo "When the Blacks take over the Country I'll be ready." BTW I was looking at Navajo jewelry not guns.
"I want you to explain to me why people started buying more, stock-piling and hoarding guns and ammo after the election of Obama in 2008."

It's the people exerting their Constitutional rights in the face of a President and government that has the desire, the intent and the potential power to deny them those very rights...is it really that hard for you to understand...?

<quoted text>You don't read so I doubt you know about this but the thing is the surge is gun sales didnít begin in 2008 when Obama took office. Over the last 10 years (from 2002 to 2011) there has been a 54.1 percent rise in the number of NICS checks and the increase hasnít all taken place since 2008. In 2005 there were 8,952,945 NICS checks. In 2006 the number topped 10 million. In 2007 NICS checks pushed passed 11 million. In 2008 NICS checks passed 12 million, and then hit the 14 million mark in 2009. They increased slightly (4 percent) through 2011.And don't forget all the "fear ads" the NRL ran during the campaign against Obama and all the while, Obama never mentioned the word guns.
You would have to be an idiot to believe Obama is the cause. Come to think of it, you are an idiot.
LMAO
Do these words sound familiar;

"And that number doesn't include any so called ARs or hi cap. mags."

You know...those AR's that are used in less murders than murders committed with blunt objects...or even less murders than those committed with hands, fists and feet.

You can play the race card all you please. I really don't give a damn. For some people, you may be correct, and I don't associate with them. Anyone who knows me personally will tell you that there isn't a racist bone in my body. I'm surprised it took this long to elect a black man (half or full) to the big chair. My loathing for Obama has NOTHING to do with the color of his skin, and has everything to do with his uber-socialist policies.
As far as the number of "hate groups" are concerned....consider the source of the info.
"consider the source of the info."

Would that be another hate group from the extreme left...?...big surprise huh...?

Never in history has a POTUS been treated with the contempt and disrespect that has been shown Obama. If the hatred for him is not ethnic or racial, what is it? Policies...my ass....
"Never in history has a POTUS been treated with the contempt and disrespect that has been shown Obama."

Liar.

Oh how quickly you forget...what was the term used by the left, lberals, Democrats, "fustrated control freaks", etc...for the previous President...?...what was that....oh yeah..."CHIMP"...rem ember that...? Now can YOU imagine the outcry if the same term was to be used again...?...or some of those same political cartoonists were to draw the current President the same way the past President was...?

"Never in history...."...lol...my a$$.

The reason there is no ammo on the shelves now is because the government is buying it all. If people can't get ammo, what good are their guns?

Pretty slick and sneaky.

You are as full of shite as a Christmas turkey. BTW did you support Baby Bush? How about Cheney? If any of what you say is true then why didn't The great white hope [Romney] win?
Christmas turkey
Trying to deflect from the truth? What does ANY other president have to do with this one being a fraud? I spoke the truth and you know it, even your own posts shows you know he was elected on race not ability. The fact you even mention race and avoid ability shows you know it's true. The big lie the liberals want to push is " If you like his policy then it's ability, if you don't agree then your a racist." Sorry but I'm not an idiot and that crap don't fly. He has yet to fulfill even one of his election promises. That's called failure. He has done nothing but raise taxes and debt. That's failure. He has divided the nation on race, religion, and economic lines. That's failure. He has snubbed the Constitution and made constant attacks against the rights of citizens and expanded the powers of government that are in direct opposition to the Constitution (which he took an oath to protect). That's failure. NONE of these has ANY relation to race but ability.

I take you at your word and have no problem with your differing opinions. You, unfortunately, do not represent the majority of cons. Many are in denial and do not believe he is the legitimate POTUS, duly elected by a majority. BTW many ideas put forth by Obama were Rep. ideas until his name was attached. You really don't need to fret your pretty little head over my ass it's in good hands.
I have never said that I disagree with ALL of his policies either. I just disagree with the majority of them. A very important one in my opinion is gun control. The way elections are run in this country today it's hard to believe anyone gets there honestly. I vote for the candidate who most accurately represents what I believe. Unfortunately NEITHER party has been very good, of late, at finding a candidate who inspires my patriotic fervor. To me Mr. Obama is just another inept office filler that we must put up with until we can find someone who will do the job well.

I've been called a "birther" because I asked questions about the birth certificate BS, even though I have never said what I believe one way or the other. Seems one isn't allowed to ask questions about that.

I've been called a racist because I express views that are contrary to the political philosophy applied by Mr. Obama. I'm told that I dislike his methods "because he's black".

I've been called a "tea bagger" because I express conservative views. I don't know what the "tea party" is all about nor do I care. I'm not a member and I speak as an individual citizen.

I've been called an "NRA gun nut" because I believe that the second amendment means EXACTLY what it says and I believe that it is extremely important to protect our individual rights. I don't have anything against the NRA but I'm not a member and I speak as an individual citizen.

It certainly seems that a great many of the supporters of Mr. Obama and his liberal agenda find philosophical dissent repugnant and attempt to silence it with accusations of everything from insurrection to insanity.

BTW, I don't care whose hands your ass is in, that's TMI my friend.
