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:
- 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.
- 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.
Update 1: More from the Washington Post.
