i saw this on facebook and copied it hope the original author
is ok with this "reprint."

I start off with the facts. I am an not highly educated man. I live in Rural Kentucky. I do not follow politics or ballgames. I AM a father of two young daughters, and for their future, their protection I have been listening to the "proposed gun ban and laws." One thing that I read and do not know if it is a fact. That during this what I will call a "gun and ammo scare" Obama struck a cord with Americans making the sales of Pistols, rifles, and ammo, higher than all recorded sales combined in the past.(Correct me if am wrong) This "gun scare" was started by a conterversal "shooting" As if we had none of those in the past.
After Obama's last address to the nation, he proposed NO BAN on any guns. After ALL they Hype. Not even one gun banned? This struck me as odd.(but happy!)
The thoughts rolled around in my head as I had gun fever also and was part of the "gun scare." I now own 2 more guns directly becasue of this and stock pile of ammo to go along with the 20 or so rifles and pistiols my family and I already have.
Then a week after obama speaks, it just so happens that North Korea started "test fireing" Nucular weapons....

Here is the question. Most of us thought (and most still think) that Obama is failing his task as leader, but what as this "gun scare" about? another messup of his? OR NOT!?

It is said that the USA has the largest Armed Forces and highly trained men and women in the world. Yet when was a war fought on USA soil?(not civil) As I said before I am just a man with his eyes and ears open, and what this Redneck sees is brilliant but also causes a scare, as if "they" know something we don't.

So USA has the largest, many would say most powerful Armed Forces... Question is WhY did obama start this "gun scare?"

Take a look around, at your buddies, your wives, your children, even the Anti-gun yuppy neighbor, you have down the road who "swore" he would never own a gun...but now has a safe full.

What did Obama's "gun scare" do???

He armed his nation of citizens with the guns and stock piles of Ammo.

So now we the United States of America, not only has the top quality trained armed forces, but also a highly supplied households of men and women ready to defend their own ground.

This all still leaves me with the question. Why? What do they know that we do not?

At the least we all know we are locked, loaded, and training!

No, I have a much different assessment of the situation. I think when Obama saw Americans buying up guns and ammo in record numbers, he was afraid to outlaw any guns for fear of another civil war. He knows there are some people just waiting for the right excuse to fire the first shot.
207,643,594 Eligible Voters in 2012.
197,828,022 Registered to vote
129,154,558 Voted.
65,899,625 voted Barack Obama
60,928,981 voted Mitt Romney
1,275,821 voted Gary
469,500 voted Jill Stein
580,631 voted Other
68,673,464 DID NOT VOTE (more registered voters stayed home than voted Obama)
Out of 197,828,022 registered voters, 131, 928,397 DID NOT vote for Barack Obama.
That amounts to 66.68842748677% of the registered voters who DID NOT choose Barack Obama as their president!- And that doesn't include the 9,815,572 people who didn't register!
When you add the non-registered, eligible voters in, that amounts to 141,743,969 of the American people who didn't vote for him.
Think about that for a minute and let it sink in.....out of a nation of more than 207 MILLION people, nearly 142 MILLION of them DID NOT VOTE OBAMA.
I think he just might feel out-numbered; what do you think?

I said nothing about 'majority vote'; I was pointing out the fact that the majority of Americans DID NOT VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA. The numbers don't lie.

Better to hqave guns and ammo and never need it or never use it than to need it and not have it. Nothing wrong with owning things just because you can, this is America, we are still for the moment free to own guns and ammo. Anyone who doesn't want to own them doesn't have to but should be fined yearly for costing the police forces around the country time and money to protect people without their own protection.

Are you willing to die for a lost cause ? If you shoot a federal officer you've murdered a fellow Us citizen and you committed an act of violence against your own government. Look I'm not against you but your methods will get you killed and if the government wants your guns they'll take them wether you like it or not.

The gun scare is where the NRA every four years talks gun-nuts into a senseless panic where they run out spending all their money buying every gun and bullet in sight instead of buying things for their wife and children. And the gun companies which make large donations to the NRA greatly appreciate you buying their products instead of you spending your money on your children.

Got any stats on that Jen? Like does the poverty rate increase simultaneously with gun sales, or what?

I went to the sporting department in Walmart to look for hunting socks ..... they're nice and warm and toasty for walking in the Daniel Boone in the winter. I saw the empty ammo shelves. I don't mean near empty. They were 'empty'.

Saying gun sales and ammo sales are elevated or higher is an enormous understatement. Gun and ammo sales are 'surging'. Why? Do you guys really think all guns are going to be banned? They aren't. But you let the NRA talk you into buying everything in sight. Promoting gun sales is why the gun companies give those huge donations to them.

If you own an assault rifle now's the time to sell it. The gun zealots are paying a fortune for them. Especially if it's a Bush master AR-15. Ever since the shooter used a Bush master to shoot all those children and teachers they want one.

Btw, I know Bush master is one word but my post was deleted so I thought I would try it as two words to see if it cleared.

You ignored the posters request for "stats" to back up your statement and you still haven't shown any. Now you say that guns aren't going to be banned and I will ask where do you get that from? You mock people for listening to the NRA but you expect them to listen to you and you have nothing to back what you say.

Hi, Mister Meaningless Nonsense. Hope you're doing well today.

When something is common knowledge such as the surge in gun sales you can do your own footwork ..... or rather, do your own fingerwork. Try google. It's a wonderful thing.

Well oh clueless one, I didn't ask about gun sales surges. It was your comment that they aren't going to confiscate guns. Go back and read it again and try to keep up this time. How old are you? Should you be on the internet unsupervised?

BTW, I use Bing.
