Every time the left goes into a gun grabbing frenzy, gun sales always end up going through the roof. In the aftermath of the recent tragedy in Florida, we are seeing an all-out assault on our 2nd Amendment rights like we haven’t seen in decades. Politicians from both parties are pushing for new gun control legislation, and as a result gun owners all over the nation are feverishly stockpiling weapons and ammo while they still can. In fact, Google searches for “buy a gun” and “buy AR15” both just hit the highest levels ever recorded.
At a gun show down in Tampa, Florida over the weekend, nearly 7,000 people showed up on a single day. The Republican governor down there has turned out to be a gun control nut, and so true conservatives are buying guns while they still can. The following comes from my good friend Mac Slavo…
According to the New York Times, the lines stretched out the door this weekend at a gun show in Tampa, Florida, as thousands of potential buyers and the merely curious waited for their turn to browse booths stocked with the latest firearms, ammunition, customizable holsters, and patriotic paraphernalia.
Several sellers said they were on track to double their normal sales for a weekend. “It’s sad to say, but whenever there’s a shooting, business only goes up because people are afraid of losing their right to own a certain weapon,” said Quaidman Woody, who was running a booth with his father, a sales representative for CrossHeirs. “So even if they don’t need another AR, they’ll buy another AR or pieces of it.”
The left keeps insisting that more gun control is the answer, but look at what has happened to communities all over the country that have instituted very strict gun laws. Violent crime is at record levels in Chicago and other left-leaning cities across the nation, and meanwhile violent crime is at very low levels in communities that encourage gun ownership.
All throughout history, leftist governments have grabbed guns with absolutely tragic results. After massive gun grabbing campaigns, millions perished in the Soviet Union, Red China and Nazi Germany. Yes, the Nazis were leftists. They were “national socialists” that believed that big government was the solution to everything.
For decades, America has been marching down the road toward socialism as well. Under Barack Obama, gun owners were so concerned about the threat to our fundamental rights that it pushed gun sales to unprecedented heights. Here is more from Mac Slavo…
Under Obama, background checks for guns reached 141.4 million through the end of May 2016, amounting to sales of about 52,600 a day, according to the FBI. Last year, the FBI conducted more than 23 million background checks, which are generally used to figure sales of new and used weapons.
The media and anti-gun liberals are one of the best things for the gun industry; the very industry they are so desperately trying to cripple.
It is absolutely imperative that we send more true conservatives to Congress in 2018, because we are literally in a battle for the soul of our nation.
If we continue on the road that we are currently on, eventually we will become another “failed socialist utopia” and our constitutional republic will be gone forever.
But that isn’t going to happen. With Trump in the White House, this is our opportunity to take our government back, and future generations will look back on this moment in history as the key turning point.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.
One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.
The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.
Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.
I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
