I have to laugh at liberals decrying a decline of jobs in the gun industry.  The funny part is that, if gun sales were skyrocketing, they'd be claiming that Trump was preparing his own "secret army" to take over the country.  It's as sure as sunrise.

Just as silly as conservatives buying guns in record numbers because "Obama gonna git yer guns"

Sure. However, I have no doubt whatsoever that liberals would collect guns with alacrity if they could figure out how.

That's because you're a partisan hack.

Shotgun ammo hasn't gotten any cheaper that I've seen.....and I buy the cheapest I can find and a lot of it.

The local "penis sporting goods" is usually the best source, but wallymart carries it as well-in certain stores. The odd thing is that the stuff from wallymart smells funny when fired-like a burning ping-pong ball.....the manufacturer must use a lot of cellulose in the charge. Never noticed it with other ammo.

Dr. if you REALLY want to save money on shells you should look into reloading. I do for every caliber (except for 22) I have and shotgun shells. I calculated that reloading my own sg shells that 'a box' from me is about 1/5th the cost of store bought and they shoot better.

No, that's because many liberals can barely hide their glee whenever the subject comes up.  They'd love to have happen here what has happened in the UK and Australia, at a minimum.

You don't honestly believe that liberals did not buy guns for the same reason?

Oh I'm pretty sure I could figure it out. 

Take a good look at the folks you see at gun rights rallies. Probably not gonna confuse it with a Mensa mtg.

The most disturbing thing in this whole dunce infested thread is that you know what a burning ping pong ball smells like...

It must be sad to live with that kind of fear

No fear was involved really. Back then in the late 80's I was hanging with one of my old school buddies that came back to the state and he was heavy into firearms. I hadn't shot much since in Boy Scouts and the only weapon I had was my old Wards bolt action tube fed .22 with a 4x scope. After my 1st trip with him to Duffy's shop & their range, I jumped into that "Hobby" with both feet. AR. AK, SKS, Mini-14, M1 carbine, Colt .45, Browning Hi-Power, Taurus Stainless 6" vent rib .357 and a few other pieces. Several years later he moved to Florida with his job, then Duffy's range closed down and my shooting fell off a lot. When Windows 95 came along, then I jumped into PCs with both feet and have been with those ever since. Just another Hobby but I still have all my pieces, including my better than 50yr old now Wards .22. :)

Alrighty.

BTW, not asking for any special reason: did your household pets tend to meet gruesome ends? Did you have a bit of a bed-wetting problem....

I'm not calling you a name, just calling it the way I see it. You didn't provide any evidence of your statement so there's nothing to disprove. Most liberals don't give two shiites about your guns, the only people who think otherwise are conservative liberal hacks similar to the liberal hacks who claim all republicans are racists.Partisan hacks are partisan hacks, you find them on both sides.  In fact your buddy Guido just said liberals bought lots of guns, so which is it? You partisan conservative hacks need to get on the same page.

Well ken....again as hard as it maybe for you to believe ....we agree AGAIN.

But the key is the word 'most'....joe six pack dems/libs/rep/cons....really just want to leave things alone and as they are. Hey you want to own a gun(s) fine....you don't that is fine also.

However on both sides, the powerbrokers and decision makers and powerful ....HAVE OTHER IDEAS ON HOW TO RUN YOUR LIFE.

And unlike Reganomics.....there is a trickle down affect.

So for me....IF THE JUDICIARY SYSTEM FINALLY GOT A SET..... and put away criminals for a long time for using a firearm in the commision of a crime....it is a sure bet that all this 'stuff' would go away. Because the basis for pro and con of guns revolves around bad guys screwing things up.

Face it; on the anti side....well guns kill people....true but mostly bad guys are at the center of that. On the pro side....if all the bad guys are in jail....then justifying an arsenal goes away for protection reasons.

Put the bad guys in jail.....and all that is left are straw men built by the two factions.

Hope that makes sense....

I know plenty of liberals and none of them care about your guns. Again you're just a partisan hack.

Well, I do feel sorry for those who fool themselves into the thinking a gun will by them protection only to have it take the life of themselves or someone they love.

But that's just me. A bleeding-heart liberal.
