Gun Sales Up In Fear of the Worst

Fear of a possible Obma Presidency have driven gun sales up. More here. The new & "improved" (read EXPANDED) Clinton Gun Ban that Obama has promised to push for & sign if he gets elected would make it illegal to manufacture or sale hundreds of scary looking otherwise completely normal semi automatic rifles, shotguns, & standard capacity magazines. I'm adding what I can to my collection now before the election with the following premise:

  1. Best Case Scenario: Obama looses his bid for the Presidency & I end up with a lot of very cool stuff I wanted to get eventually regardless.
  2. Worst Case Scenario - Obama becomes President, demand & prices suddenly skyrocket, Democrat controlled Congress & Senate pass the new version of the Clinton Gun Ban on the manufacture & sale of hundreds of semi automatic rifles & shotguns (the gun ban would also include a provision for any President appointed US Attorney General to add ANY weapon to the ban list that he or she FEELS does not meet any so-called "sporting purpose") not to mention all of the newly banned standard capacity magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. What I already bought will be all I can ever get. I will suddenly have in my hands a precious commodity worth hundreds or thousands more than I paid for them. That's not a bad return on investment, not to mention the fun & practical uses of the equipment itself.
In summary, if you want it and can afford it, get it now, because you might be unable to get it later.

Update 1: More from the Washington Post.

Agreed, my friend. With this election looming over us, I've decided the circumstances warrant waiting to clear the rest of my debt in order to ensure I can still buy what our rights are supposed to guarantee. Sad, but true.

P-MAGs, in flat dark earth (with window! lol) are the only thing on my Christmas list this year...

Those are some sweet standard capacity mags! Might want to pick up a few high capacity mags as well, you know, the barrel drum mags that hold 200 rounds? Yeah, now that's high capacity - high capacity fun at the gun range. ;)
