Wow: 'Biggest crowd ever for biggest gun show on East Coast' in Chantilly, Va.

The three-day Nation’s Gun Show At Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va., kicked off yesterday, and gun enthusiasts turned out in droves to participate in an Obama stimulus that actually works.

Code Pink protesters also turned up, sans floppy vagina costumes:

But their Fluke-like “crowd” was easily dwarfed by Second Amendment supporters.

Even today’s rotten weather didn’t deter shoppers.

And it’s not just in Virginia that people are lining up to shop for firearms.

Hey, President Obama and Sen. Feinstein: You did build that.

    Well look at that. Ordinary People.

    • TugboatPhil

      It’s obvious that none of those people beiieve what their “betters” have told them they should.

      • Jack Deth

        Forewarned is fore armed, Phil.

        Always remember:

        • BlueGood

          When will the Libtards get it…that there actually are some things worth fighting for….like LIBERTY, FREEDOM & Justice!

          • mickeyco

            That’s it, Blue! That’s what I’ve been overlooking. The difference betwen a lib & a conservative is that to a lib NOTHING is worth fighting for. Thank you!

  • Alky

    By the looks of it, Obama will need more than 1.3 billion rounds of ammo.

    • Montana Patriot

      they already do

  • TundraThunder

    Those in DC and the state capitals had best remember these gun shows and the numbers in attendance when election time comes up again. That’s a lot of votes against anyone suggesting taking guns away from the public.

  • Anonymous

    We line up like that on election day as well.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. If we’d have lined up like that on election day we and the country wouldn’t be in this mess right now.

    We SHOULD line up like that on election day as well.


    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      By all reports from the conservative stations I listened to, there were lines like this…. NH, OH amongst others.

  • mickeyco

    3-6K gun advocates and 9 Code Pinks? Sounds about right.

  • Jack Deth

    These photos and tweets remind me of an old saw:

    “Build a better mouse trap. And the world will beat a path to your door!”

    Now watch the liberals, bed wetters and gun grabbers panic and double down on stupid.

    • Garth Haycock

      Liberals, bed wetters and gun grabbers. That’s a triple redundancy!

  • Leslie Young

    “Ban assault weapons”? Those pink idiots don’t know the first thing about guns. True assault weapons aren’t legal now. They equate semiautomatic with assault weapons. Stupid! My first BB gun was semiautomatic.

    • TundraThunder

      They believe if a gun looks like an assault weapon (fully automatic), it must be one. The fools will never learn, thanks to poor education and the media.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Yeah, I hope they include those poor pink cardboard replicas that Snatch Code Pink were brandishing in the parking lot. Did anyone go check their permit for those?

    • dmacleo

      same with our 12 guage, 30.06, older 22, .32 pistol, etc.
      they don’t lok scary though and thats all that matters.

      cause if it looks scawwwwwy its baaaad …..

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      I hope they get their pink cardboard “assault rifles” taken away.

    • Robert Jackson

      Actually you can buy a fully automatic assault weapon. You just have to get a special license to do so. It amazes me how little Americans know about everything.

  • PAPhotog

    Don’t forget to become an #NRA member….also, practice and take a safety course

    • Moue La Moue (D)

      Absolutely! Many of your local ranges will have All Women’s classes as well! :) You can learn pistol or rifle basics, which not only include the loading and firing of your firearm, but ALSO how to clean and store your firearm properly. It is SUCH a good idea, and several of our ranges in CO. are run by Veterans. To me, this is Win-Win!

  • Kristin H

    This is happening all over the country. Show in Kansas City last weekend sold out most tables by noon on Sat. All the anti-gun talk is backfiring on the libs. Just makes us go buy more! And, TO HELL with DICK’S sporting goods!

    • Scott Coleman

      I agree. To give in is to be complicit. I find the best service comes from local shops, even if those shops are internet shipped through UPS or FedEx.. The firearms business is one American business best served by local shooters running the shop specifically for shooting and gun shows are best populated by many of our trusted firearms purveyors that we support for supporting us. Exceptions would be places like Cabela’s. But anytime I am there, their firearms counters are a victim of their own success; they have pick-a-number system. It is why, for the most part, I stick with local shops unless I am looking for a decent rate on bulk ammo or looking to pick up an old Mosin-Nagant or Mauser, then gun shows come into play. All that being said, I like going to gun shows to be surrounded by FREEDOM.

  • SpinMeNot

    I was going to buy a good set of gouges next week, but I’ve instead ordered a rather large quantity of 20 rnd magazines for my M1As and a few more 30 rnd mags for my AR. I am hopeful that the USC 310 and FOPA will stop this nonsense, but I am not optimistic.

  • Guest

    3,000 people lining up for a gun show is nice. 3,000,000 million people letting the gun-grabbers know they are watching and letting them know we will vote is better!

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Heartwarming!!!!!!!!!!1 Mmmmmmmmmm……..warm and toasty.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Anybody remember those well sourced Drudge links a while back about Homeland Security buying up and storing up a few (new) million rounds of ammunition? Who are those for? Not a conspiracy nutter, I’m just asking in the “Public Interest”. I’m sure David Gregory will square that particular circle in his Sunday interview with Caligula’s horse, Obama.

  • Tim

    I don’t care what gun laws the socialists try to,or pass,i will not register my guns and I will not give them up,if they want a fight,I will be more than happy to oblige them.I am not a beta male brit or aussie,I am an American male and I will live by the constitution or die.I am not a subject,I am a free citizen and the 2nd amendment is non negociable.

    • George Washington Mclintock

      You said it brother!

  • Rebekah Kloeppel

    I guess the TEA Party is really, truly dead, then, if these paltry few are all that showed up to support the Bill of Rights.

  • thetreyman

    “ward ag center”. why that would be in the town i grew up in. good old Lebanon, TN. i have been gone from there a while now and didnt know they were doing gun shows. i hope everyone got an ar15, an ak47 and one of those evil handguns. dont forget the ammo.

    Banning Our Birthright: Feinstein’s New, Ugly Legislation
    Here are some details on the proposed gun and magazine ban, directly Madame Feinstein’s web site.

    In summary, the law includes some handguns, it requires nationwide registration, background checks and fingerprinting, even for current owners, just one evil feature-such as a pistol grip–can get a semi-auto banned, and it mentions: “Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment.” Does this mean that your heirs must turn in your guns for destruction? Let’s wait to see the wording of the bill that is introduced. But regardless, this is definitely bad legislation, so start contacting your legislators! (Thanks to Jim W. for the links.) The following in from Senator Feinstein’s web site:

    Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
    120 specifically-named firearms
    Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
    Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
    Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
    Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
    Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
    Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
    Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.

    Feinstein tosses these measly bones perhaps in the hope of assuaging some boot-lickers.

    Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:

    o Background check of owner and any transferee;
    o Type and serial number of the firearm;
    o Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    o Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and

    o Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

    JWR’s Comment: If this is enacted, we can expect a nationwide shortage of 8″ diameter PVC pipe threaded end caps!

      LOL! There will be more holes in the ground than you could count!

  • lainer51

    Like a lib told me recently ” the people have spoken”…
    really? – is that why the pic of Barry in a gun store has the caption – Salesman of the Year?

  • slapshwan22

    People need to check to see if any democrats or people at CNN own stocks that have to deal with firearms in anyway b/c someone is making a fortune! Wish I bought some gun and ammo stocks.

  • AaronHarrisinAlaska

    If not mistaken, it was the original ARB that lost Clinton both the house and the senate. I wonder if Obama pays attention to history.

  • Jeff

    All those guns and all those people and NO ONE WAS SHOT !

  • disqus_LASIg6epmj

    The Eastman Gun Show that was recently in the Atlanta area was packed from what I heard.

  • Scott Coleman

    Remember, This is the “Militia”, or in other words, the largest Army in the world. Take note Feinstein, Lautenberg, VP Biden, P Obama, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Hawaii, (insert Liberal states here)….

  • Red Fred

    Feinstein stimulus program.

  • Scott

    Just normal Americans well aware of the elites trying to subjugate them. #2ndamendment

  • LadyImpactOhio

    Notice they are respectful and not jumping lines. Sorta brings the OWS crowd to shame.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Our first freedom being exercised. Beautiful Once again reminded why ours is the greatest country in the world, even with Obama in office.

  • TheKingJAK

    I almost hit up the Nation’s Show for my very first time, but the massive crowd simply made me decide to look elsewhere for the time being. The entire parking lot was FULL, and there was no parking anywhere remotely close-by from what friends told me. I know a considerable number of Veterans who attended as well, and it was an awesome display of support.

  • Lidsamy

    Finally, and Obama stimulas that works

  • rporth

    Sunday morning news on NBC today show basically stated the large crowds attending the va gun show were met with equivalent size of crowd of protestors of guns…. In your face lies….

    • mickeyco

      How did they back that up? Or, I suppose, they didn’t even bother?

      • rporth

        They showed a picture of the few folks, yet stated it was an equivalent crowd as the folks attending the show…. It was so in your face… Pathetic

  • Robert Jackson

    OMG all of those guns, how was on one shot????????????????????????

  • dfsdf

    I really like to play wow.It brings me a lot of fun.;

  • $27197450

    Gun shows all the rage since #Obama went on the war path…

  • Sig_Sauer

    It’s great to see these long lines and they are BUYING guns. The Republicans sure did “screw” us taxpayers with the tax bill. I’m worried that these same republicans will do the same with any weapons ban. We can’t trust either party. Start emailing your representatives and senators.
