Election Aftermath: Stock Market Tanks Further, Gun Sales Awesome!

Let’s see: we had the biggest two days drop since 1987 on Wall Street, occuring the two days after That One was elected. On the flip side, you might want to pick up some stock for companies such as Walther USA, H&K, Smith and Wesson, Glock, Baretta, Browning, and others who manufacture guns. Can’t wait to see their earnings reports for the 4th quarter!

And locally here in Raleigh

Barack Obama said he would improve the economy. Turns out he already has, at least in one retail niche: gun sales.

Starting in the days before the election, gun shops across the state have been mobbed by buyers who fear that Obama and a larger Democratic majority in Congress will restrict firearm sales.

Many were stocking up on things such as assault rifles, high-capacity magazines and handguns that they think would be the most likely targets of new laws, though practically everything related to shooting has been selling more quickly.

As I mentioned yesterday, I went and applied for my handgun permit. And the Wake County Sheriff’s office was packed with people of all ages and races. There was a little old blue hair, and she was applying for 3 licences. Heh! Do I need a gun? No. I approve of ownership of most (it is certain bullets that I am against, as they are not “arms”), but I have never felt a need. I will not keep it in my nightstand 10+1. I may or may not get my concealed permit in time. But, I would rather get one now before the Democrats hose our Right to own one.

Do I think it will happen right away? No. But, I also do not think it will be big, sweeping legislation. A bite here, a bite there, and soon the flea has eaten the buffalo.

And down in Athens, Georgia, a few people freaked out over a sign.

  1. As for the gun sales, I’m not sure what that all means outside the obvious that some people are getting nervous.

    I guess I’ll take the wait and see attitude on this one. Have had my registered firearms most of my life. They’ll do just fine.

    No, I’m not a card carrying member of the NRA. While I agree with the Constitution the same cannot be said of everything NRA.

    Oh no, I’m sure I just irritated someone, somewhere. So it goes.

    Glad your firearms are registered. That will save the gun grabbers some time. The people buying guns now have a problem. Law requires the purchase records to be destroyed after a short time but several states/cities have been caught with purchase records that go back for years. I’ll purchase my firearms from a private individual/flea market to assure they are unregistered, seal some of them along with lots of ammo in PVC pipe and bury them.

    You might want to find a copy of a WWII comando handbook which show what you need to survive behind the lines and keep up the fight. We’ll all be behind the lines.

    Notice how quick the racist gun grabbers started calling other racist?

    Good for you Scrapiron. It seems that you have what is really short of today – good sense. I’ve never owned a “registered” weapon in my life. Why would I want people who are going to take guns away know what I have? I know the records are suppose to be destroyed but with computers today – who knows if they really are and our “leaders” aren’t just lying to us – as usual? Does anyone check on them? And if they catch them – do they throw them in jail like they would me for not wearing a seat belt? You ought to see all the cops on the road now that the election is over!! I guess they have to make up for lost time some but it seems to me that they’ve been told – pull them over and write tickets or lose your job!
    God, we need a good Revolution in this country!!!
