    I’ve been running a check on the availability of certain types of ammunition
    and the magazines to hold them, and most suppliers of these popular ammo
    and magazine types are either out of them or backordering way into the Fall.
    This has just occured in the last month. News items mention that high capacity
    magazines by one manufacturer are unobtainable in any reasonable time frame.
    Also,magazines and ammuntion of types recently in the news are rising in price
    if you can find any. However, Homeland Security apparantly has no problems
    obtaining beaucoup citizen-killer bullets. Food for thought.

      Sounds like 4 years ago at least as far as ammunition good luck except for short 22’s and some random bullet were all you could get here. Forget long 22s 32s, 45, 9mm. The workers call their friends when the shipments come in. Even Walmart nationally made a rule and stopped their ammo being bought by people camping out.

      Well, I can’t remember what state is offering 1000 a gun if you turn it in. How can people even find new magazines for older guns and why when it appears they won’t be allowed. This is going to be bad and follow the liberal politicians adding tons of regs to any bill after it’s signed. It’s going to be like health care.

      Heck yes, these weapons are for shooting people. It’s not like a shotgun or rifle is going to help you a lot of a half of dozen thugs break into your home or jump you. It’s not like you can carry a shotgun or rifle around your house all day if there was a disaster or attack another attack on our soil. And it’s not like the Muslims are going to give up their weapons as local and federal law enforcement would never get approval to search their mosques or camps. Hey that religious
      law they have non-believers can’t even enter their place of worship gives them enormous religious rights. Explain how when Muslims are for abortion and Obama Care how they can be exempt from it by religion.

      I saw on Fox where the owner of Hobby Lobby and Mardels Christians store for decades does not want to offer the after sex pill, and lost. They will have to go the Supreme Court. How much a religious record does it take. If this company is willing to pay for an employee to have a baby instead of a pill, it’s pretty evident they truly have strong religious beliefs against the pill.

      With the new CRISIS (this comment is timeless because you will always be able to insert the new crisis of the day) coming down the pike, it just makes me realize more and more between the differences between democrats and republicans:

      democrats are strategic geniuses but with retarded policies.

      republicans are strategically retarded but have good ideas.

      So, basically, if democrats want to destroy America, they will have a well thought-out plan, use whatever tool needed, get whatever vote, change rules, break rules, any and everything, but they WILL get it done.

      republicans have the chance to save America, they won’t have the faintest idea on how to go about it, how to convince others, how to drum up support, no idea how to get the needed minimum amount of votes, will be blocked at every attempt at every level. Will get frustrated easily, and will compromise with just allowing 1/2 of America to be destroyed, feel pretty good they were even able to get half, wash their hand of the whole thing, and move on.

      Gun control will be another republican collapse, so will the debt ceiling, or anything else. This group of republicans is a very very poor group as a whole. They couldn’t even muster enough votes to challenge and get rid of Boehner. Think about that for a while.

      It always goes something like this…
      Sunday Morning News Anchor: We have conservative republican from _______ with us here today NOT supporting reasonable gun control, that our poll says 78% of Americans DO support. Sir I have to ask you, “Why do you hate children?”

      conservative republican: “I-I, I don’t, look, I have 2 kids of my own, I love kids, I want kids to be safe just like everyone else but I think—”

      Sunday Morning News Anchor: “Excuse me, with all due respect sir, then why wouldn’t you support such a bill if you claim to love kids, this is just un-American!”

      conservative republican: “I just think, well it’s not un-American, I served in Vietnam, and my father served in WW2……”

      Conservative viewer: Oh my god, who put this babbling unprepared clown on the air? Geez! Every strawman argument these liberal guys come up with takes the gun supporter completely by surprise every single time. You would think they would practice, look at the Riki Lake show and MSNBC set ups, and know exactly what they are going to ask, and when they are going to cut you off, and how to slip in your talking points regardless of what they say to you.
      Newt Gingrich is an expert at this, he should train these people. But, since they can’t, they will fold like a deck of cards each time, and make a fool of themselves to boot.

    Boy Scouts of America

    The Oath
    On my honor, I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
    To help other people at all times;
    To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

    Boy Scout Law
    A Scout is:
    and Reverent.

    Boy Scout Motto
    Be Prepared!

    … without sounding like a scold or a pedantic, you shoulda known this was coming and laid up the necessaries long ago.

    Obama “jokes” about armed gunmen watching his daughters.

    It’s okay for Obama to joke about his daughters having armed guards while dating, following
    the Sandy Hook school shooting, but the white house spox and Chris Christi are slams the NRA?

    Obama joked after the first election about wanting guns for when his daughters date.


    “We joke sometimes about how Malia’s getting to the age now, and boys start calling and, you know, sort of, I always talk about how one of the main incentives for running again was continuing Secret Service protection to have men with guns around at all times…,” said Obama.

    no joke…..
