Wow, finally an article that parrots my sentiments and what better way than to have some “Black Friday” statistics.
I often wonder what bag of beans this cry for gun control is really coming out of. No I don’t have time to research all the saber rattlers but for sure, the increase in gun sales after every shooting is something to make a note of. If there is someone out there who can track down those Sandy Hook folks who went around the country calling for stricter gun laws? Is there anyone who has the time to connect the dots of these folks to the NRA or the Gun manufacturers? Does anyone remember how the gun sales shot up after Sandy Hook?
It’s like anything that you like and it’s being threatened to be taken away. How many times has the looming diet to start tomorrow prompted the eating all day and night the day before? Nobody likes being deprived of what they like and enjoy. How about the sex on that night before the final break up? How about the fear of failing a test you never studied for and cramming all night long so you could pass it the next day. How about that movie starring Queen Latifah when she was told she only had 3 weeks to live?
Fear will drive folks to extremes no matter what the threat as we can see with all the high handed security that we have gotten since 911. So yeah, it only makes sense that cries for “gun control” would send folks with their last dollar out to get those guns. Maybe we got it all wrong, maybe the so-called false flag shootings are being orchestrated by the gun manufactures who are looking at the decline in violent crimes and they need a boost in their stocks similar to what happens when the saber rattling for more war does to the Military Industrial complex budgets. Woohoo, more war, more sales of killing machines! More bets to hedge on Wall Street and more coffins for sale. Could it be that the dead make more money than the living for the elite banksters of the world?
Folks we need to think passed the smoke screen and the calls and pleas for “gun control” after incidences that are happening especially in gun free zones. Seriously, criminals don’t care about gun laws, so taking them from those who are law abiding is really not gonna solve the problem. How about we disarm the army, navy and air force and national guards and police force, they got the biggest most dangerous weapons.
For some reason, I keep hearing this eerie laughter in the back of my mind. Who’s laughing at our ignorance as they go to the bank and cash in?
Obama Is The Greatest Gun Salesman Of All Time: “There Were Two Background Checks Every Second On Black Friday”

While most Americans who braved the annual Running of the Sheep celebration were stocking up on discounted veggie steamers and last year’s flat screen TV models, those who understand the threats to liberty and personal safety chose to spend their hard earned wages on personal protection.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation sales of firearms on Black Friday broke a new record. The agency processed 185,345 background checks, or roughly two per second. The previous record was set shortly after the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012 when President Obama and numerous anti-gun Senators proposed widespread bans and restrictions on “weapons of war,” prompting literal lines out the door from Americans fearing government driven confiscation initiatives.
Black Friday shoppers sought to buy a record number of guns on the nation’s biggest retail holiday — about two every second — eclipsing a previous record set in the days after the Sandy Hook massacre.
The FBI processed a terrifying 185,345 firearms background checks — the most ever on a single day — on Black Friday, the agency said Tuesday.

Mainline news outlets like USA Today, the New York Daily, and the Huffington Postmade it a point to note that on the very day 185,345 Americans across the country were purchasing firearms a crazed individual killed three people and injured nine at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
President Obama, who saw over 10,000,000 guns sold ahead of the 2012 Presidential election, weighed in after the shooting.
“Enough is enough,” Obama said in a statement on Saturday. He said the Planned Parenthood shootings showed the need to “to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war” for “people who have no business wielding them.” (Huff Post)
We assume he is referring to the millions of Americans who wield these weapons of war after being subjected to unconstitutional background check violations, attending multi-hour safety courses, studying their legal responsibilities in safe defense situations, and spending hundreds of hours at the shooting range ensuring they don’t kill innocent bystanders should they ever be forced to draw their weapons.
He couldn’t possibly be referring to people in positions of power who have initiated drone strikes that kill 90% civilians and control our nuclear strike codes, though they have never served in the United States Armed Forces, never held a private sector job, served as a state Senator for just two years with the only accomplishment to their name being a Harvard education for which no official records exist before becoming the highest elected official in the land.
