Obama stimulus: Gun buyers nationwide tweet about long lines, empty shelves

The scene above is a phenomenon sweeping across the heartland. The White House is finally responsible for a stimulus that works.  The nationwide gun-buying frenzy? Gun buyers say President Obama built that:

The shelves are emptying fast:

I just left my local gun store this is what's left now...

After waiting 2hrs at the #gun #store I was able to buy the last 4 they had! #ar15 #red #white and #blue  #2ndamendment #America

Ray's gun store in Dallas. AR section. Officially sold out. We bought the last S&W .223.

The lines are long and out the door:

Waiting in line to get into a #gun #store only in #Texas #love this state #overcapacity

Parking lots are overflowing:

From Pennsylvania to Florida to Illinois to Texas to Utah and all points in between and beyond, gun stores are packed:

Welcome to the gun store...I've NEVER seen it this busy! #standingroomonly #guns #ammo #stockingup #everyonesgotthesameidea #selfdefense #idontownagun #husbandschristmas

Bottom line: Americans are serious about self-defense and unapologetic about exercising their Second Amendment rights while they still have them.

    Even in the great liberal state of California; every gun store I went to was packed, and on a weekday! Bought 2 lowers, .223 ammo and my buddy bought an AR15 and ammo 5.56. Stuff was flying off the shelves, it felt like Walmart on Black Friday! Well, barring the punching, shoving, kicking, scratching, and fights! It was nice to see the ladies getting their last minute pistol shopping in as well! Nothing hotter than a woman with a firearm!

      When Communist China demands Soclialist O’Blamo to “Disarm his Citizens” you KNOW in your heart it’s time to be ARMED and well supplied with ammo.

      Even the stock markets are reporting the new “Precious Metals” are “Steel, Brass & Lead”…

    Our second amendment rights are under attack. Is this what we want for all the people who fought for our freedom and gave their lives? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8RDWltHxRc&feature=youtube_gdata_player

      Yet, liberals want to stick their heads in the sand and be in la la land and pretend that it’s eeevollll guns. Criminals aren’t the ones who get guns legally. It’s the law abiding citizens who go through the process to legally possess. Is there a website somewhere that has cold hard facts on stats of gun control and violent crimes? One that you can show to the anti-gun zealots and they can’t claim it’s biased?

      • NachoCheese (D)

        It’s not a website, but if you want the cold hard facts about guns and violent crime, read this book:


        It is an analysis of gun laws in relation to crime and prevention written by an economist that digs into the FBI crime statistics.

          He also has a very good website, and is on Facebook.

            Information is the best weapon and may cause people to hone their critical thinking skills, which in some cases that is beyond their grasp. Keep up the good work with the sourcing and keep the information flowing. We the people deserve better than being stripped of our freedoms from many that choose to make hate filled statements. In my experiences my lowest points in my life always turn out to be the best ones. In the end we have each other for valuable information, etc. Not the current vultures in the Obama administration telling mistruths, stonewalling, and using smoke and mirrors.

      I am posting that video to as many sites as possible. Maybe the media will pick up on it.

      • David Shrock

        Same way I found it HARP2, spread the information and keep up the good fight!

    Loved Malkin’s comment! Obama finally responsible for a stimulus that works, gun sales!

  • traffic_robot

    Yep, my other half works in firearms retail, and Obama is the gift that keeps giving. Yesterday they could barely keep up with the customers. It’s terrible this has come out of a lack of confidence in our leaders to do the right and rational thing in the wake of a tragedy. Those leaders don’t seem to realize that we have no faith in their ability to keep our best interests (esp. safety) in mind. Not to them that of our children. I will happily wear the badge of a bitter clinger.

    Let me explain how we will take your guns from you.

    Please bear in mind this probably won’t happen in our lifetimes. It is a long-game.

    We will slowly, gradually, weaken the second amendment. Slowly, but surely. Until eventually we will completely repeal the second amendment.

    We will offer amnesty to all who turn their guns in for a period of time – maybe 90 days or so – and we will melt the guns down, recycling them alongside the deadly ammo.

    Many right-wing nutjobs, such as those visiting this website, will refuse to hand the guns in.

    We will send the police and army in to check every house with a registered GOP person living in. If we find guns in your house after the amnesty is over we will imprison you in specially built high-security centres in which you will learn to be less violent people. You will remain inside for a few months until you have learnt to be less hateful, violent, monstrous people.

    Before you leave you will be required to agree to a Pledge of Peace in which you agree never to try and acquire a gun again.

    Repeat offenders will be imprisoned for life. Offenders who use a gun to harm another person will be put to death by military firing squad.

      Good luck with that. Anytime anyone even hints at gun control, the gun stores have record sales. And that doesn’t include private sales.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Nice try at sounding like a rational human being. Did your mom type this out for you? In any event, it’s a stupid, ignorant (yes, I’m being redundant for clarity) post. Can I hope that you’ll be the one that comes to my door, in the hopes of disarming me and my family? Oh… you’ll be the one cowering in your home when all hell breaks loose, wishing you had something to protect your family with. Too bad it will have to be me and your neighbors like me who will have to protect your spineless ass when that time comes. Will you be grateful? Probably not. Will we just let the wolves have you? Maybe.

      • Bob Smooper

        The army will take your guns! The army will be required to pledge allegiance to the Democratic Party or they too will be imprisoned.

        • walterc

          The Army will not take my guns. Oathkeepers.

        No worries…he’s not even in the U.S.

    • Jd1367

      So who are the fascists again, Mark?

    • Joe W.

      Wow….Just wow….Do you realize what you are describing?? What did the Nazis do prior to WWII? Did they not go door to door and send people to “re-education” camps?? Did they not do so without any due process?? Your post illustrates perfectly well what the Founding Fathers envisioned when they wrote the 2nd Amendment. You are a completely moronic fascist. Go to hell, buddy.

    • walterc

      I’m glad that I’m on the side that believes in owning guns. When it comes down to the last battle to save America from itself, it will be armed Conservatives against unarmed liberals that don’t believe in private gun ownership.

      And if it comes down to me protecting an anti-gun liberal neighbor? His children yes, him? wouldn’t want to offend him by using a gun to kill an attacker.

    • FilleGitane

      Meet the new McCarthyites.

      Why stop at the 2nd Amendment.? Go for the 1st as well. Let’s start by rounding up everybody in the entertainment industry who has ever profited from using a firearm in his film or music. After all, you can’t ignore the “root causes” of this problem. These maniacs get there ideas somewhere and we all need scapegoats. Mandatory five year prison terms, retroactive. And while you’re at it, let’s get rid of the 4th amendment as well. No show trials. Just lock them up.

    • lainer51

      Wow I want what you are smokin’

    • $7610427

      Mr. Cooper…I suggest you pay attention to the politics and happenings on your side of the pond. You have your own set of problems. And, while you continue to put your nose where it doesn’t belong…your own country is being weakened by a society of takers. All that socialism you support and hold dear is destroying the very country that you call home. Stick to cricket…and the politics of the UK. And, stop allowing the idea of a socialist utopia destroy your great nation!

  • Drinky McGee

    Moron labe.

  • Streetiebird

    The NRA loves scare mongering all the ignorant people into thinking someone’s going to try to take their guns away. It’s hilarious!

    • AaronHarrisinAlaska

      The liberal party loves scare mongering all the ignorant people into thinking the NRA is going to kill them all. It’s hilarious.

      • Streetiebird

        Oh? Who’s saying the NRA is trying to kill them?

        • AaronHarrisinAlaska

          You must be new to real life. There were 300 (rough estimate the some claimed as low as 75) people marching on the NRA office in DC with chants such as “the NRA wants to kill you” and “the NRA kills children” as well as “the NRA has blood on its hands” Then again you’re a troll, I don’t expect you to pay attention

          • Streetiebird

            LOL sorry I guess I missed that one. Thanks for your kind words.

    • lainer51

      ok – tweety bird, thanks for explaining it to us.

  • Jack Deth

    This is an excellent depiction of “Dynamic Analysis”. Reacting to a situation. Something liberals NEVER factor into their many countless fix all, feel good schemes.

    Gotta love it!

  • lainer51

    finally, one of Barry’s “little talks” made a difference.
    The pics remind me of that big bad boycott of Chik-Fil-A – standing room only!!

  • ML

    And this is why I bought my gun before the election. Figured this issue would come up eventually. Although now that I have a pistol, I kind of want a shotgun…
