California Gun Race

I just got back from a road trip with one of my co-workers and learned some things about California that don't sound very good. To explain why my co-worker and I got on the subject of gun laws you have to understand that this guy I work with Steve (name changed to protect his identity) is a very big gun enthusiast and has been preaching to me the need to get a Glock and a CCW. What we discussed on this trip we were on was how in the gun world the election of Obama triggered a huge surge in gun sales like nothing else in recent history. I heard from a gun dealer that between office hours of the fourth to the fifth of this month he had 700 orders. For this small time dealer that was monumental and unprecedented.

My wife and I have been talking about getting some more guns for our own protection and to be prepared for eventual trouble in the world. The problem is that it is already getting harder and harder to find guns. Sportsman's Warehouse just opened a store in my town and they haven't been able to get any new guns in since the opening two Weeks ago and they have been selling guns right and left. The two models of Glock that I am interested in they have never even had in the store.

The reason for this blog is to let everyone know that reads this to go out and get as many guns and ammo as you can afford so that when Obama stops the sale of semi auto guns you will already have yours.

Some things should not be put in print!

Haha at Mimi's comment! My first thought at "go out and get as many guns and ammo as you can afford" was, Boy, Jared really is a nut. But really, he's probably saying what a lot of us are subconsciously thinking. Tough times are ahead and we need to be prepared for them. Not all (ok, probably the majority of us) will think about stockpiling guns for this tough future. But perhaps we should be. Those of us that believe that these are the last days need to prepare for and contemplate what lies ahead.

I think one of the funniest things I have seen this year are those that voted for the presidential candidate who has routinely voted against the Second Amendment...and then rushed out and bought a gun and a bunch of ammo when that candidate was elected! Really makes me wonder what people are thinking? :P It is nice to read stuff like this...makes one feel not so "out there" for similar feelings. May I also add that nourishment must also be stockpiled...can't get too many vitamins and minerals from guns and ammunition, unless it is used to hunt. There are some other interesting theories I have about credit in an economic downturn, but that is not th topic of this post so I will refrain. Keep the posts coming. I now have three posts on my blog (not that I am competing with you or anything), but no fancy pictures...will have to work on that.
