the law of unintended consequences

Then Second Amendment lives!

The election of Donald Trump has prompted panicked liberals to stockpile guns and ammunition in anticipation of “societal collapse.” Lara Smith, national spokesperson for the Liberal Gun Club, says her organization has seen a “huge” rise in enquiries since November’s election and a 10% increase in paid members.

US gun sales hit record levels in October amid fears a Hillary Clinton election victory would lead to draconian gun control measures. The election of Donald Trump, who was backed by the National Rifle Association early on, was thought to bring an end to panic buying. Shares in gun manufacturers even dropped by as much as 18% following his victory. Instead, FBI background checks for gun transactions soared to a new record for a single day – 185,713 – during the Black Friday sales on 25 November, according to gun control news site The Trace.

    Is it libs? or is it other people who see what the libs/progs are doing and know it’s only a matter of time before they go too far and a civil war breaks out.

    I think they know and fear their dirty laundry will be aired out, and then will come the hunting with dogs.
    I hope the gun buying is prepping for suicide. They’re too dumb to realize it’d be cheaper to jump off bridges.

    I’m expecting to hear of a lot of accidental self-inflicted gun injuries soon…

    I’m waiting for the first libtard to discover what all those BS gun control laws they’ve been foisting off on the rest of us are really like.
