Ft Collins, CO –-( Recently, many gun retailers set firearms sales records!

Gun-hating leftists, including the president, are openly talking about banning the private possession of virtually every kind of gun. In fact, the BHO Administration is heavily hinting about bypassing Congress, once more, and unilaterally ending private arms sales.

The result is that legions of naive, frightened, and confused Americans are, once more, sheepishly flocking to gun retailers and buying-up every AR. AK, FAL, M1A, XCR, SCAR, PTR, et al they can find. G19s, SIG 320s, M&Ps, XDs, FNSs, PPQs, VP9s, et al are also cleaned-out. Prices are back up. Way up! “Bargains,” available only days ago, have all vanished!

The traditional DNC party-line of “Don’t buy guns! You don’t need them,” obviously has no credibility, even among professing Democrats!

It’s been a down-day on the stock market (BREXIT), but not so bad for Ruger, S&W, ATK, even Colt. Their stocks are solid and prices they charge distributors and retailers are up significantly.

Of course, capable, observant, and responsible Americans are already heavily armed, and have been for some time. We are also competently trained and mentally prepared, something that merely “buying a gun” does not automatically accomplish, any more than buying a piano automatically makes one a musician!

In liberal “utopias,” like CA, NY, NJ, and CT where severe restrictions are in place, hapless citizens are scrambling in a desperate effort to get guns and ammunition they need, particularly when they suddenly realize they are prominently featured on the latest ISIS “hit list.

The murdered police chief in Paris, France, stabbed to death at his own home by an Islamic jihadist, was apparently not routinely armed. You can bet his replacement will be. In Europe, they’re slowly learning! Over here, the Administration is consumed with trans-gender bathrooms!

More lethal attacks are coming, and you can bet hypocritical Democrat politicians, who urge you not to buy guns, will definitely not be taking their own advice!

“Private-sector preparedness is not a luxury; it is a cost of doing business in the post-9/11 world. It is ignored at a tremendous potential cost in lives, money and national security.” ~ 9/11 Commission Report, 2004
