As America Collapses, Gun Sales Are Booming!

  civil war

You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!Stocks may be up or down another 900 points right now, who knows — but they are very much down in general, like 35% down. And houses, they are worth nine dollars each, in KFC coupons, yet there are no takers. All the car manufacturers are shutting down, forever, and soon gasoline will be 45 cents a gallon again, and nobody will want some. Are Americans buying anything these days? Yes, they are buying millions of guns, for the coming race war.

“Tampa Bay Gun Sales Rise Before Election,” says a Florida paper. “Gun Sales Up In Texas,” reports the teevee news in Brownsville. “Politics and the economy drive gun sales,” says WKYC in Ohio. “Gun Sales Thriving In Uncertain Times,” the Washington Post reports.

So, guns for everyone!

What’s driving this 10% sales increase for the firearms industry when all other forms of business are collapsing? The experts say it’s due to conservative fear that the Obama Administration will toughen national gun laws, in a bizarre attempt to lower the insane violence and nonstop murder that pretty much defines America.

Others are worried about the New Civil War. “Gun purchases have also been climbing because of the worsening economy, which fuels fears of crime and civil disorder, industry sources and specialists said.”

And still others fear that Sarah Palin is going to illegally ride a snowmobile through all of America’s national parks, beginning the night of November 4, on a mission to murder all Obama voters with her moose gun. She will be the Santa Claus from Russian-Socialist Ice Hell, going house to house and leaving nothing but carnage. Her first victim will be John McCain.

But seriously, go buy your guns this weekend. If you don’t end up needing the weapons and 50 boxes of ammo to protect your loved ones from the mobs of meth-crazed hillbillies wandering the suburbs looking for brains to eat, you’ll need them for the enraged blacks who look for revenge after Whitey steals the election from Obama.

    This is unclear; should I be using the guns against the enraged blacks, or should I be handing the guns out to them?

    Basically all of those gun sales are to McCain staffers getting ready for their Tuesday night Mexican Standoff in Crystal City. $50 says Palin walks out with the severed forelegs of half a dozen flunkies and a smoking rifle.

    Luckily I live in Utah, where even the college kids on campus are packing. If there was any great civil unrest Romney would approach from the East to rule over the Cave People, who he would then lead to conquer the Western United States until being beaten back by Ron Paul, who will save America in his blimp of terrible retribution and questionable grammar.

    “»Freedom States Alliance Press Release: After 8-Year-Old Boy Shoots Self With Uzi Machine Gun, Advocates Demand Minimum Age Requirement for Machine Gun Use”
    http://www.gunguys.com/

    Unbelievable. The GunGuys’ motto is “Where Everyone’s A Straight Shooter”. Apparently the little boy didn’t shoot his Israeli military Uzi straight, unless his own head was his target. This is sick and sad:

    “According to the Associated Press on Oct. 27th:
    WESTFIELD, Mass. An 8-year-old boy died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision at a gun fair.

    The boy lost control of the weapon while firing it Sunday at the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo at the Westfield Sportsman’s Club, police Lt. Lawrence Vallierpratte said.

    The boy, Christopher Bizilj of Ashford, Conn., was with a certified instructor and “was shooting the weapon down range when the force of the weapon made it travel up and back toward his head, where he suffered the injury,” a police statement said.

    Christopher died at Baystate Medical Center.

    Police said the boy’s father, Charles Bizilj, attended the event with his son. The father is the medical director of emergency medicine at Johnson Memorial Hospital, in Stafford Springs, Conn.

    Although police called it a “self-inflicted accidental shooting,” police and the Hampden district attorney’s office were investigating, officials said.

    The local newspaper, The Republican wrote:

    Witnesses told police the boy lost control of a fully automatic UZI he was shooting under the supervision of range officers at the club “when the self-inflicted accidental shooting occurred,” police said in a statement……..

    Asked to comment on the advisability of an 8-year-old shooting an automatic weapon, Bennett said, “Once we have more information on what happened and how it happened, we’ll be in a position to make public statements (on the incident).”

    Efforts to reach club officers for comment Sunday were unsuccessful.

    Witnesses said the boy “was shooting the weapon down range when the force of the weapon made it travel up and back toward his head, where he suffered the injury,” police said in the statement they released.

    He was conscious and lying on the ground at the shooting range with a wound to the right side of his head when police and emergency medical technicians arrived at the scene, police said.

    After first aid was administered, the youth, accompanied by his father, was taken to the hospital, police said.

    The size of UZIs vary. Police did not say which model of the weapon the boy was firing.

    The weapon was originally designed for use by the Israeli military.

    Ashford is about 29 miles east Hartford.

    The Westfield Sportsman’s Club, in association with COP Firearms & Training of Amherst, was conducting a machine gun shoot and firearms exposition this weekend, according to its promotional material for the event.

    The advertisement includes the information that, “You will be accompanied to the firing line with a Certified Instructor to guide you.”

    Attendees under the age of 16 were admitted free, and free .22-caliber pistol and rifle shooting for adults and kids was offered, according to the promotional material.

    [re=154355]Min[/re]: People are people, idiots are idiots, and guns scare some folks. Frankly, people scare me…and that’s why I have guns. But that which is the most scarilicious for me is considering the idiots who own guns, but have no training on how to operate them. When the shit hits the fan it is these neighbors who will panic, grab their guns, and who will the most dangerous. Armed, amateur, panicky, and stupid. Someone’s gonna get hurt.

Gaze upon us in envy and awe, dear brethren of the world, from self-satisfied Europe clear around to Mela, Micro, and Polynesia, for we are your children, your tired, your poor, your retching refuse puking on the floors. We are America, the shining city sliding down the hill, filled with the ignorant and the addled, scared shitless and armed to the teeth. Fat as cattle going to market, we feast on apocalypsticked pig, washed down with fizzy sugar water, and pass our time enraptured by the audio-visual while we await a greater Rapture, the gift to us and the world from our psychotic God.

    And don’t forget, we have stealth bombers and nucular weapons, too.

    Two common criticisms of Americans by Europeans is that we are “a cowboy culture” and “a mongrel society.” Both have some merit, e.g. the gun mania, but the Europeans, who are genetically incapable of improvisation except for gypsies, can’t see the positives (Obama and productivity, even when the job is a mother).

    Gawd. Most Americans can’t even change their own oil, yet we allow them own heavy weapons without intensive training? My Dad once saw a Colt 45 go haywire at a gun show and take a guy’s head off, and these were people who knew what they were doing.

    Hey, the kid reportedly was using a MINI-Uzi, not a full-size model.

    Gesh, you act like the instructor was acting irresponsibly or something.

    Actually, the Mini would be harder for an eight year old to control. It fires the same 9mm round as the full size model, but is less mass to absorb some of the recoil.

    That’s why I recommend starting eight year olds with a MAC-10. A higher rate of fire, sure. But it’s only the 9mm Kurtz/.380 auto round, which most grade school kids can handle with ease.
