Like how electric cars are slumping even more. People just don't see the need to buy them. Maybe crime under Trump has decreased? Or maybe global warming has stopped? Alright, yeah, Trump stopped global warming!

The Alt-Rightists, Republicans, Conservatives and fellow-travelers who have the biggest mouths, will be the first to crawl, whimpering, under their beds, at the first sign of this "civil war". It's the way of abusers and bullies. The head bully is going down and so is their pretense of bravado.

I have an old 4-volume set, titled "The Story of the Great War" (World War I), that weighs 25 lbs. The story of "The Second American Civil War", would occupy a pamphlet the size of a utility bill.

Aren't I Phones sales slumping? Eventually the market is saturated and people just don't need as many.

Plus guns don't wear out.

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

Not to worry. The SHOT SHOW in Vegas starts tomorrow and will have acres of new guns and accessories.

I'm pumped!

Yeah they do...
I had to rebarrel my 338 Lapua and a couple 6.5 Creedmoor chambered ARs due to throat erosion and keyholing...
It's salad days. Ammo is affordable again.

Gas rings? Replaced a few sets in my older ARs.
Recoil Springs in Glocks and AKs with high round counts.
If the steel is inferior in an AKs bolt and front trunion it will wear out and you'll get extremely unsafe headspacing issues to the point you could have a kaboom.
I've had worn recoil Springs in AKs result in the bolt tail that resets the hammer and trigger get mushroomed from smacking the rear trunion.

I wore a mini 14 out when I was 19. Had that since I was 15 and shot that thing for years on end with just simple cleaning and lubricating Ruger hooked me up when I sent it back for not being able to cycle any more.

Guns most certainly do wear out. Especially if you shoot them...

I don't shoot less than 2k rounds per trip to the range...
I'll shoot an AK until the handguards smoke.
I'll shoot ARs until the hand guards melt, or gas tube let's go.
My M1A national match I shoot Fudd style. Nice and easy. Slow and steady. Don't want to risk causing injury to that glass bedding inside the stock by constantly stripping it down... Bang. Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it Bang.

Even the almighty cold hammer forged chrome lined mil-spec barrels wear out...
If you shoot them enough...

If machine guns were legal.... the ones I want would need new barrels after each range trip. Head space would need to be monitored by inspecting spent brass and with field gauges, go/no go gauges.

Glocks do this neat thing when the recoil Springs wear out...
The frame gets the hell beaten out of it in front of the front rails...

I haven't worn a 1911 out yet...
Nor my HK or FN plastic fantastics. Then again I don't shoot them as frequently as my Glocks...

A gun dealers best friend is a rabid anti gun politician.

I agree 100%. Conservatives: long on mouth, short on action.

You agree 100% with a made up statement? lol Conservatives run their own lives. Like adults do. We don't expect handouts nor do we live on them like you and your fellow nanny staters do.
