A thought from John Hawkins:

* I've had two separate people who have told me that their first reaction to these election results was to buy more guns. Speaking of which, I am toying with the idea of buying a semi-automatic shotgun myself.

When people start thinking that it's much more likely that they're going to need a gun to protect themselves as a result of your election, I think it's a pretty strong vote of "no-confidence" in your leadership abilities.

Have heard the same thing. An impending Obama presidency was the impetus for me to buy the gun I did get, and I figure we will probably buy more.

That's at the top of my Christmas wish list.

I'm clinging to religion today and thought about a gun. This is one time I sure do hope that we are proven wrong on the gut feelings we have.

When do you think my check will come?

Heh... there's a gun show around here this weekend... Hubby says we don't need another one, but I disagree, LOL

We definitely spent our weekend at the gun show out here last weekend (Same place as Kannie). There's another one in 2 weeks on the north end, and then another mid-December back where this weekend's was. We definitely added to our rather small collection, and made sure to buy ammo, which is twice the cost it was a year ago, and is sure to go up.

I think eventually (if it's still possible down the road), we'd like to expand our collection, but for now I'm satisfied. Except for ammo. Never hurts to have more ammo.

Agreed on all counts.

I have never felt a greater need to arm my family physically. We've been God-touched to have no more than one act of war on our soil by foreign nationals in over fifty years. It's sheer idiocy to believe we won't have another one.

In the words of Metallica (from "Don't Tread on Me"): "To secure peace is to prepare for war."

Hmm . . . I think I'll post the full lyrics of that song on my blog. Metallica might have sold out a few times in the recent past, but that album lives on as one of my very favorites. :) And that song is SO PERFECT, especially for the military. :)
