Not just NO, HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think the libturds ever heard about the 2nd Amendment (Probably never heard about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or any Amendment!)

Of course I thought the same thing when Obama was in office and sales were rediculously high. The fear of taking your gun is the best sales pitch I have ever seen. It makes people that own 8 guns go out and buy 2 more which logically does not make any sense at all.

1. If your taking guns then I just wasted money on 2
2. If I am arming up to prevent my guns from being taken and have 8, those other 2 aren’t helping much. Better spent on ammo.
That doesn't mean new models aren't being introduced. SHOT show is happening right now in Las Vegas. Every manufacturer has their new models on display.


And even the same gun can be configured for different purposes. The home defense AR doesn't fit well in the truck, get one in a pistol format. Why not one with a 20" barrel for better accuracy on longer shots. .223 isn't big enough for certain types of hunting - get one chambered in .300BO. Want to take down a moose? One in .458 SOCOM.


This can be applied to almost every type of gun on the market so not just the AR applies here. The Springfield XD pistol comes in 3 sizes. The match version as well. The XDs (single stack so it is thinner) is in a couple of sizes. They just introduced a model with an external hammer. Each model can have a different use and some like the fact that with similar ergonomics, training on one can be applied to all.

Really???

It's so weird that people stocked up on guns under Obama because of the paranoia that Dems would take the guns away.

And even thought that didn't happen, I'm guessing the same shopping spree will repeat itself if we get a leftie Dem president again. Which either shows a crazed level of paranoia or a sad level of gullibility, that they never learn.

when politicians threaten and/or pass restrictive laws, its no longer paranoia.

Quick, someone manufacture a crisis! They're coming for youuuuuu...

It's salad days.
Where I do transfers is always booming.
Almost any gun store I've been to is booming...

Manufacturers aren't under threat anymore so they can't get 900+ for a basic carbine or pistol any longer. There is truth in democrats being the best firearms salesmen...


Police surplus is rolling in. You can scoop PD issued Glocks up for 300-400 that are in like new condition. Occasionally you'll get one that actually saw use at a range and has holster wear.

Police issued Colt carbines are cheap.

Funny the NRA lives in your head rent free though.

Ammo is affordable again.
I've bought and fired well over 100k rounds since Trump took office. That's just in 5.56...

The power isn't there to take, or restrict sales, until the Demwits hold the Presidency.

LOL here's just NICS checks for firearm purchases...


This does not take into account for
States that do not perform NICS checks for concealed carry permit.
The amount of weapons on a 4473.
When I buy stripped receivers for ARs or AKs I usually buy 2-5. And when I receive them they get put on the 4473. One background check for all.

In the last 2 years, I have bought well over 250, 80% lowers and milled other peoples for them, in numbers I cannot count.
