So what is really going on here? Return favors for the big bailout? Possibility, run the sellers and manufacturers into financial ruin and have the gov't buy up all the makers? Just a thought.

There are many sources of funding for gun stores and other gun places like gun ranges etc.

Any gun store now-a-days has plenty of cash from the support of the worlds best gun salesman EVER: Barak Obama.

Every gun being sold today has doubled in value, profits to store. Ex: an AR15 used to sell for $600, now if you can find one they are going for $2,000+.

Try a Kel-Tech PLR-16 in .223 semi-auto in Pistol form ! only $799.99 @ http://www.floridaarmory.com Its very light mostly plastic ... I've heard it is a blast . What real terrorist would carry a bulky AR15 when they can put this little friend in their pocket .Custom 70-round stick magazine available elsewhere . Other .223 can be found @ http://www.rainierarms.com or a Saiga Izhmash RAA IZH-114 which is based on the AK instead of the AR15 , it's what I was issued and does what it was designed to do . Although I prefer the AK in combat the izzy is good for suppressive fire which is basically all any .223 is good at ,to limit their magazine capacity renders their entire reason for being null . Perhaps limiting the Jews to Israel would be more productive . God didn't promise them the USA so why does the USA take orders from Israel against the enemies of Israel ? The USA had 0 enemies in the middle east . Now only Israel is a friend . And Israel is the reason . And Israel has made all the gains . The USA paid for it with blood and gold . Will you allow it to continue ? How long can the Jews piss on you and tell you it's raining ? Who controls the value of the US Dollar ? An American ? No, a Jew in England from a sovereign nation within the borders of London . Politics : Washington , DC , Finances : London City , Religion : Vatican . Three city nations and they are all run by Jews .These 3 control your life . You must be so happy . Bomb Bomb Bomb ...

If GE starts picking on gun owners by not loaning money to gun shops then the gun owners might just pick on GE by not buying their products.
