Talk of stricter gun control prompted thousands of people to turn out for gun shows all over the country this weekend. Lines were long, in some cases stretching hundreds of yards.

Not everyone, however, was happy to see Americans exercise their basic constitutional rights:

    I wonder if these gun control freaks realize that they’re responsible for the surge in gun sales?

    Reminds me that I wanted to purchase a few more handguns this year.

    My sister-in-law wanted to know why I “needed” all of the firearms I own. My wife answered for me, and asked her sister if she really “needed” all the shoes she owned and if we should regulate how many shoes she could buy in a month. God, I love that woman!!!

    pfft, those are small lines compared to what’s going on in the Liberal mecca of CA
    “Estimated 10,000 attend gun show at Cow Palace” http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=news/local/peninsula&id=8951843

    • Penmar

      That’s because CA is getting ready to pass even stricter gun laws than they already have, specially since libs have the whole legislature and the Govs office.

        Way to bring me down dude! :( ….jk

    I wonder if Piers Moron realizes what he’s wrought?

    Thank you Liberals! Each time you squawk about taking our rights away, more and more sane and responsible American citizens arm themselves and their homes. And I love it!

    “The NBC Sports Network, a subsidiary of the
    communications giant Comcast, is helping to sponsor the largest gun
    trade show in the country despite anti-gun rhetoric on the NBC family of
    television networks, including a controversial monologue by one of its
    sports announcers.

    NBC Sports is listed as one of the primary sponsors of the 2013 SHOT
    Show, which takes place Jan. 15 to18 in Las Vegas and bills itself “the
    world’s premier exposition of combined firearms.”

    Could it be that the people are reacting to Fascistic statements from Gun Grabbers like Charles Schumer:

    NEW YORK (AP) – Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.
