    Gun sales once again skyrocketing, one gun shop owner very recently said reasons were 1} Christmas 2} Obama got re-elected 3} School shooting, in that order. Now State legislators, still dodging what they've run on the past couple of cycles and people actually hired them, jobs and the economy, find another dangerous distraction, like the already many, showing their mentality and it's state of!!!

    Gun dealers see sales surge with prospect of new restrictions on ownership
    After school shooting, some states move to ease gun rules
    After the Connecticut shooting, some state legislators aim to let school staff members come to work armed.

    These are the LaPierre 'good gun owners' in this once civil country, or seeking to be, should Really Worry About as their mental disorders grow from just once individual quirks into even deeper group think paranoia and more!!

    •  Note that there are very few "new" owners (3+ / 0-)

      Current gun owners are buying more. The number of what LaPierrre calls "good gun owners" is shrinking relative to the overall population.

      I get it that sports enthusiasts have multiple weapons. I've only hunted a couple of times, but I know enough that you can't use the same "toolbox" for deer hunting as you do for water fowl, and that different genres of target shooting involved different "tools." I understand the collectors as well, and we can easily accommodate ALL the needs and virtually all of the desires of those subsets of multiple gun owners.

      I am much less sympathetic to my fellow citizens who want to "stock up for the coming troubled times."  Yet those are probably the bulk of the "market growth" in weapon sales.

      It's a problem we must eventually come to grips with.
