Guns Sales

Recommended Posts

Today Glenn Beck predicted that if Obama wins the next day will be the largest gun sales day in human history. I agree would will be a run on guns and ammo like never seen before.

A 12 gauge & a Glock 40 cal. should suffice.

OK for home intruders in the city - insufficient in wide open or rural areas where many people carry

rifles with real range. Where I live cell coverage is spotty at best so there is no guarantee 911 is

going to work outside of a house land line - so you may be on your own. Chances are the nearest

help are your neighbors with the police 15-20 minutes out.

If the election goes South I would invest in at least one high powered rifle as well.

Ruger makes a nice 308 cal.

Yes that looks pretty nice with a good scope rail which is always important.

Why?

The rest from 'Michael E. Marotta' which came e-mail but is missing here:

Why? Do you expect that having secured the election of their favored candidate that millions on social security and Medicaid are going to invade the hills, take your farms, and work your land? In November??

Do you expect that seeing the re-election of the man who continued all of the policies of President George W. Bush, that millions of hillbillies are going to grab their guns and round up undesirables to be shipped to Guantanamo?

What is the scenario here?

Yesterday, I interviewed several professors in the classics department at the University of Texas. On either side of the so-called "Sack of Rome" new villas were being built along the coast, connected to fresh water with new aqueducts. The "Fall of Rome" as it defines the rightwing worldview here and now seriously misinforms those who condemn themselves to repeat a history that never happened.

You think that everyone who lives in the city is a Marxist. And in an aesthetic sense you are right. Karl Marx was a philosopher of the industrial revolution, as was Ayn Rand. It is a curious bed that sleeps both the Greens and the Retreatists. Tractors are not built on farms. You cannot grow enough corn to fuel one seriously.... yes, there was a time... yes, you can live on a couple of acres... Overall, the city can do without farms better than farms can do without the city. I know that seems counter-intuitive, but think it through...

Do you see any gun-toting looters being shot by gun-toting vigilantes in the wake of Tropical Storm Sandy?

Funny thing about Y2K... Right after New Year's 2000, a big storm swept the Carolinas, leaving thousands without power... Where were all those generators? No one grabbed their guns to loot or defend grocery stores. Like now, everyone just waited for the storm to pass so they could rebuild as much of their lives as possible. And these were real events , not eschatological fantasies.

I highly recommend The Future and Its Enemies by Virginia Postrel, not so much as sociology but rather as psychology: right up there with Nathaniel Branden on how to get your head screwed on straight.

Obama is a Maoist revolutionary with Islamo-Fascist ties - he is all about banning guns as much as possible and will attempt to do so in a second term.

That took 1/8 of a second. Now I would like to hear your reasoning about how that is possible.

My main concern is social chaos egged on socialists and brought about by financial collapse created

by socialist engineering and central planners.

They would not waste the crisis they created - confiscating guns, curtailing gun and ammunition sales,

controlling the movement of guns and ammunition, imposing horrible restrictions and punishments,

extreme taxation on guns and ammunition, limiting what can be sold and where, and the creation of

a generally hostile environment designed to eventually lead to authoritarian collectivist rule.

"Poor Canada. So far from God, so close to the United States."

Too bad Canada does near 100% government housing and control

of fuels in extreme rural areas then tops it off with extreme environmental

regulation in areas where you could shoot short range missiles all day long

and never come within 100 miles of a human. Low population and no

business potential will stay that way unless they start to relax regulation.

That said they are kicking the USA's ass in many areas because our

regulation is out of control as well.

Americans are afraid, rightfully so, of a possible revolt by minorities.

I highly recommend every person read "Mugged..." by Ann Coulter.

Why? So they can be as frightened as you are, in fear of a 'revolt of minorities'? What the heck do you mean by minorities? Commies, Arabs, Muslims, Universalists, Blacks, Latinos, Jews, Seventh Day Adventists, Hmong, Ukrainians ... or just the horrible Them?

Too bad Canada does near 100% government housing and control of fuels in extreme rural areas then tops it off with extreme environmental regulation in areas where you could shoot short range missiles all day long and never come within 100 miles of a human.

This is over-the-top, and bears little relation to reality, reality as accurate depictions of difference between states north and south of the 49th parallel.

Case in point: Canada does near 100% government housing and control of fuels in extreme rural areas.

There is a grain of truth in the first part. If one allows 'extreme rural areas' to describe those areas of very low population density (in Canada)**, then a case can be made for federal housing subsidies (and Indian Act provisions) in those areas where the settlements correspond to what we call 'reserves' and you call 'reservations.' In a place like far northern BC, for example, the primary residential settlements outside towns are often either resource settlements or native (first nations) settlements. In the case of reserves, fundamental law dating from the earliest treaties of the British Crown make the subsistence of the native populations the responsibility of the state (the present Crown).

Now, there are differences between the domestic nation legal regime covering 'first nations' in the US, and that north of the border (except in BC, where modern-day treaties have been struck, most notably with the Nisga'a), in most measures they are absolutely similar. In other words, whether the 'extreme' rurality of Alaska or the the same in Navajo lands, the same regime applies. There is nothing particularly odd about state subventions of housing. If Dennis can point out a stark difference, I will be happy to correct my take on evidence.

On the second part of his assertions, that extreme rural areas have total control of fuel, I don't know what he means. I will ask though -- in comparable areas of extreme rurality between both countries -- let's say Alaska and Canada's arctic regions, what does 'total control of fuel' mean?

What does Dennis imagine is the difference in regulation in extreme rural (or wilderness areas)? More pertinent, what is the regime that he espies in Canada -- what are the main features and how do they contrast with the US experience?

(Consider only the three touted, planned and in process heavy bitumen pipelines under review: what is the difference between Canucki and Yankee regulatory/environmental developments?)

Low population and no business potential will stay that way unless they start to relax regulation. That said they are kicking the USA's ass in many areas because our regulation is out of control as well.

This is freaking hilarious. If Dennis had a fuller grasp of geography, he would see that his depiction of the potential in 'extreme rural areas' for business is far, far off the mark.

I never think of the USA or Canada 'kicking each other's ass' except in friendly, cousinly, sportive ways (hockey). Since you do not specify the areas of ass-kicking, we will have to leave discussion of the the details for another time.

In the interest of bringing that time closer, do you believe, Dennis, that corporate taxes are lower/higher across the border? Are education achievement scores tilted this way or another. Is per-capita business investment more or less? Is business regulation (or the ease of establishing a business) smoother south or smoother north?

I am not a nationalist in any save a murky mythic way, and so I do no happy dance when America moves down the rankings of advanced economies in a few measures, but I do have to correct impressions formed by pre-existing bias and not in fact.

Please share the information and statistics that lead you to such an odd take on the Canucki economy and state, Dennis. If they do not support your untested impressions, perhaps you will revise your prejudices.

Dennis, like william I am only murky mystically nationalist, but I too would like to know where you get your facts on Canada. I have read enough misinformation which is generally believed about us, to double check on generalisations such as yours.

I was primarily interested in Nunavut - an area as large as Europe. All of it seems to be government run as described by their various websites.

You are correct about the problem being similar to Indian Reservations in the US. I lived on one for a short time as a child and near them when in High School.

Casinos = rich Indians, no casinos = poor Indians. The Winnebago Indian reservation went from 3rd world when I was a kid to 1st world today. I hear the

nearby Ponca Indians are still 3rd world.

Both are no good - under Obama Canada is now more reasonable than the US from what I hear.

Under Obama Canada has advantages in nearly all areas - hence my interest in looking at rural Canada compared to rural US. If Obama gets re-elected Canada might look pretty sweet. I am disappointed that the most rural areas are stifled by government interference. The same problem in the most remote areas of South Dakota. I was hoping they left the city in the city.

Expect begging Americans to look to Canada if Obama gets re-elected.

Just to note, Nunavut is a Territory and not a province, and therefore under more direct federal control.

If we could take the liberal refugees when Bush won, I guess we can absorb the rightists if Obama wins. At least they won't be so goldarn picky about their lattes.

Hope Clive Runnels is around to document the migration.

Rural Canada would be an ideal location for a freestate project of some kind if Canada would cooperate. Set aside a large currently unpopulated area and

put in Hong Kong or Singapore like business rules - the less regulated and taxed the better. Business would roll in.

Unfortunately we could not put in the Hong Kong or Singapore weather. Even for gold, not a lot of folks would want to freeze for freedom.

The reality for now is that nice weather = lots of people = socialism. Robust weather for sure but who couldn't enjoy living in a "Mall of the Americas" with lots of out buildings no matter where it is. The real question if not so much weather it is whether or not legal/political stability could exist and if anyone's word is good anymore - particularly a host governments word. The ability to do long term planning for industrial purposes has been gone since the Progressives took control. The days of 100 year bonds and 30 year private projects has been gone since the late 1800's. Government like the mob always wants a cut of the action.

As words have meanings, President Obama is no more a Maoist revolutionary with Islamo-fascist ties than Dennis L. May is a crypto-nazi with neo-fascist ties. The President is an Ivy League liberal and Dennis L. May is down-home conservative.
