Lock and Load
November 28, 2016
It’s been twenty days since the fixed national popularity contest and remarkably both the scam and the republic continue. We endeavor to peacefully coexist.
It was at a holiday gathering, during a conversation with friends and family, that I first realized we libtards were arming up. Every adult in the room had fired a gun and more than half owned guns. Judging from the tone of the conversation, that ownership percentage was about to go way up. And that wasn’t the first time I’d heard libtard gun talk – or the last.
Here in the good old USA, guns (and cars) are embedded into the culture and it’s common for firearm sales to go up during times of national change. But, usually, the groups acquiring weapons are politically right of center. This would be a change.
Our national media claim gun sales are down in the post-election period. Of course, they base their reporting on retail, which represent a fraction of actual sales. So, who knows? Maybe the liberals are arming, maybe not.
If we are, we’re doing so quietly.
This is where I would typically launch into an anti-gun rant. But, at the moment, I’m not so sure. And I find the fact that “I’m not so sure” troubling. Where to now?
At least we can take some solace in that retail gun retail sales went down, so the Trump appointment has actually hurt the gun industry. Baby steps.
That’s all I got today. Take care of yourselves and each other,
