Gun Sales Up Over Gun Grabbing Fears - and Yes I Will...

...tell you that I told you so. As a matter of fact, I told you so here:

Before I told you so, I was busy ordering 1,000 rounds of 7.62x39 ammo, and a new Yugo SKS as I wrote about here:

And right before that I had told you that Obama was projected as the winner of the election and that I had no time to write about it because I had to do some shopping, I said that here:

The sad thing is I do not have enough ready cash to order more firearms. I still may have to order some on plastic and pay the piper, or would that be the money grubbing banker, those high interest rates for credit card purchases. Oh well.

Hopefully the order for the Yugo SKS will not fall through. I lost my credit card right after ordering it, and have since had to cancel it, and VISA will be sending me new ones. Of course SAMCO had not gotten around to charging my card for the rifle I ordered. I called them and they said to send an email about the problem telling them how i wanted to pay. I sent the email asking them to call for my AMEX number once they get to my order. Funny, for some reason they are backlogged several days on orders!

If you think that the fears of those whom are stocking up on firearms and ammo like there will be no tomorrow, or at least like there will be no right to keep and bear arms tomorrow, are unfounded fears - then just let me tell you - you are wrong. Here is an exact quote (boldface added by me) from the web site of Change.Gov, the web site of (yes you guessed) the President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama:

"Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets." (source:, about 3/4 of the way down the page under Crime and Law Enforcement)

Weapons, including so called assault weapons, belong just as much on our streets, and in our homes, and in the hands of We The People, as they belong on foreign battlefields. Why? Well, because the 2nd Amendment was added to The Bill of Rights in order to make sure that it would never be forgotten that We The People have the power to overthrow any government that would resort to tyranny. How could a government today resort to tyranny and use it to put down the people? By taking away their firearms, the same ones meant to prevent tyrants from oppressing us. This is the way it commences each time a tyrant comes to power. If you do not believe me then check the history books about Georgia, Cambodia, Russia, The Soviet Union, at least a dozen countries in Africa, Venezuela, China, North Korea, and so forth. Don't believe the bull crap that they want to restrict firearms ownership to fight crime. Just look to England, Australia, and France to see that tough gun control laws do not work - heck look no further than Washington, DC where the strictest gun control laws in our nation were in effect and the violent crime rate just kept going up, up and up. Why - because citizens could not defend themselves and criminals knew that. look to Texas to see how violent crime, and the numbers of violent crime victims fell. Why?" Because of the fact that not only can citizens of Texas carry firearms, but they are allowed to shoot bad guys with them to for so much as the bad guys breaking into their homes.

Look at the rest of the drivel they wrote. Of what Gun Show Loophole do they speak. There are no Gun Show Loopholes; there is only excessive restriction put on sales of forearms between individuals at Gun Shows. Why do I need to have a NICS check run on someone to whom I sell a single gun at a gun show when I do so as a private citizen, and when I do not need to do the same when I sell that gun to the same person anywhere else? On another issue why will my guns have to be made childproof when my car, my matches, my oven, my stove, my refrigerator, my steak knives, my bow and arrows, my booze, my power tools, my electrical outlets, my razor blades, and on and on and on do not have to be made childproof?

Folks all I have to say after reading that, and remember how Barack Hussein Obama tried to pass himself off as a friend of firearms owners and a supporter of the 2nd Amendment, is that you ought to be afraid of this man - very afraid. If you voted for him, you were out of your minds. Yeah, I know I said we need to show him respect, but guess what, I also said until he shows he does not deserve it any longer. First with his appointment of the biggest hate monger in DC as his chief of staff, and now with this website he has proven to me he is not worthy of that respect except as I need to show it to him as a member of the executive branch of the government. Yes I will show all DUE respect to him as his position calls for as part of my employment, but that is about it. I will not respect policies to reinstate the Assault Weapons ban, to disarm lawful American Citizens, to make a mockery of the 2nd Amendment, or to turn this nation into a tyrannical and oppressive government. I will do everything legally in my power to oppose him and to prevent him from doing these things. As I recall he will be sworn to uphold The Constitution, not to deface or destroy it or any part of it.

All the best,

I Need Suggestions For Prizes

For those of you who enter Ballseye's Firearms Accessories Tournament, I ask that you give me some suggestions as what you would think would make some decent prizes. Please try ot keep it under $15, closer to $10 would be better (when you figure I am going into my own pocket for the prizes and for the shipping, I think you can understand why I want to keep this affordable).

There have got to be a gazillion shooting accessories or supplies out there, in that price range, that folks could find useful; but I am interested to hear from you as to what you think would be some decent prizes.

Some things I am already considering are:

A bottle of Breakfree CLP

A Nylon Holster (I'll pick the size, even if you don't have a gun for it you can trade it)

A cleaning mat

Scope rings

Cleaning kit

Nylon gun rag (case)

Box of ammo (you will have to be 21 or older if I offer that one)

Gun Book

Hunting book

Bore Light

Let me know if you have some other ideas for prizes.

All the best,
Glenn B.

Foot Locker Full of Ammo

Well, I went ahead and got a count of all of the boxes of ammunition inside of my ammo locker which just happens to be a mid to late 1940's foot locker. Without giving a hint as to how many boxes of ammo are in there, that would ruin the contest, let me just say that I was surprised by just what was the number of boxes. One thing I will tell you is how I counted. I counted each full and partial box as one box of ammo. When it came to boxes within boxes, I counted only the inner boxes that actually contained the ammo. In other words, if there was a brick of .22LR, and it was full, then I counted 10 boxes because there are 10 boxes in each full brick. Likewise for collectors ammo in tin boxes, I only counted the boxes of ammo inside the outer box.

Now two people have already entered, and without telling you what they guessed, I can say pretty much for a fact that my telling you how I counted will not have effected whether or not there guesses were close to the correct number, that is unless all others guess around the same numbers as did they. If that happens then I'll figure out what to do, probably a name pull from a hat. My bet though is that someone else will guess much closer to the actual number, and it will not matter how I counted.

Take a look at the link, then give it your best shot. Good luck.

All the best,
Glenn B
