Gun Sales Spike Following Obama’s Reelection

Natasha Lennard, Salon, November 26, 2012

Evidence suggests that gun sales have spiked since Obama’s reelection. According to Texas’ Fort Worth Star Telegram “thousands” of Americans are “buying up ammo, handguns and other firearms, citing concerns that Obama might push new regulations in his second term or that U.N. agreements might infringe on the U.S. gun market.”

Both the Star Telegram and the Houston Chronicle reported that gun shops had announced an increase in sales since Obama’s Nov. 6 election victory. In Fort Worth, gun sales have reportedly been twice as high as in the same period last year. And, as the Chronicle noted, The FBI reported an 18 percent spike in firearm background checks increasing in the months leading up the election. Officials say background checks are the leading indicator of sales growth.

“In the days after the 2008 election, people began stocking up on firearms and ammunition, eventually creating a shortage. It took nearly a year for supplies to become more plentiful and for prices to come down,” the Star Telegram noted.

During an October presidential debate Obama expressed what the Wall Street Journal called “tepid support” for reintroducing the assault rifle ban that expired in 2004. {snip}

    Cue the media experts to start talking about the more “powerful” assault rifle with it`s intermediate cartridge…Funny that…

  • Michael_C_Scott

    I much prefer the “battle rifle” firing the full-sized rifle cartridge. You know the type: the FN-FAL, M-14, Tokarev SVT-40, G-43, FN-49, Hakim, and Mondragon.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      Problem is the rifle ammo is so expensive. There’s a nice selection of carbines and rifles chambered for pistol ammo e.g .357 mag. Ruger makes a model 77 chambered for several pistol rounds.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        The ammo isn’t expensive if one handloads! I used to reload 8mm X 57 Mauser with the 185-grain Remington PSPCL and 45 grains of H-4895 powder in front of a CCI large rifle primer. The cases I reformed from .30-06. That load shot like it had eyes, and I think it cost about 20 cents. I never chronographed it.

        My choice for a carbine in a pistol caliber would absolutely be .357″ Magnum, because a rifle – especially a bolt-action – could stand heavier loads, and the full range of rifle bullets becomes possible for handloads; not just those intended for revolvers.

        For a cheap semi-auto, the M-1 carbine is quite nice. The poor reputation for stopping power is mainly due to the FMJ ammo, but since you didn’t sign the Geneva Convention, you can use hollowpoints. The one caveat to the M-1 carbine is that one ought not to use cast lead bullets in handloads. Lead gets scraped off into the gas port and eventually clogs it, and you need a special tool to disassemble that part of the carbine. The M-1 carbine is also a great “girlfriend gun”.

        • LaSantaHermandad

          I once thought of doing my own reloading but I had converted most of my garage into another room so I didn’t really have the space to store the equipment. Actually I favor the FMJ because it takes at least half the time out of cleaning but I can see what you mean about stopping power. I don’t hunt so most of my shooting happens at the range. I pretty much a revolver guy.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            I was never much of a revolver fan, but I had three: a Webley in .455″ and two Nagants in 7.62mm, one a single-action cavalryman’s piece and the other a double-action officer’s version. I made the brass for the Nagants out of .32-20 cases that I reformed using a .30 M-1 carbine sizing die and a 9mm Luger shell holder.

            I had an “03 Curios and Relics” FFL until my felony conviction in 2001. I recently saw a WW-1 German Grenatewerfer spigot mortar for sale online, with the crate, tools and instruction manual. Only $7000. The beast used a blank shotgun shell to launch a finned bomb. I could even come up with the seven grand, but I didn’t cry. I suppose I’m getting used to it.

            For the Webley, I used saboted 115 grain 9mm bullets. My favorite pistols were my three “broomhandle” Mausers: a C-96 (in 9mm Mauser Export caliber), a “Bolo” and a 1930. I used to make the cases out of 5.56mm NATO, which involved inside neck-reaming. I used 12.5 grains of IMR-4227 powder and the Hornady 85 grain XTP hollowpoint bullet. This also shot like it had eyes, and was the only load I have produced that was used to shoot someone, a home invader who had repeatedly bullied my friend and his family until Ron shot him. The bullet entered the bully’s right shoulder, and turned 90 degrees as it penetrated the collar bone. The jacket stripped and the lead core disintegrated as it shattered the right clavicle until what was left made another 90 degree turn at the sternum. The bully fell down with a one-shot stop from a .30″ caliber pistol, and needed to have the shattered bit of bone surgically removed from his right lung. It made the local news back in 1998, and the first I knew of it was when Chris showed up at my door and said “Ron shot Carl”.

            I used to be a shooter who worked as a chemist to buy guns and reloading components. I went shooting almost every weekend. As much as I loved laboratory chemistry, it never brought me as much delight as shooting, and I think the people who deprived me of this joy knew exactly what they were doing. Even my ex-father knew it and admitted that my real job was shooting and chemistry just paid the bills. He was the one who sent me to federal prison, but he’s full of intestinal cancer and lives in Cambridge, England. I told him that he deserved cancer before he knew he had it. As much pleasure as he has stolen from my life, I wish I had given him cancer. His Russian wife also has cancer, but I didn’t give it to her, either.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Can you imagine how much I miss shooting?

        • LaSantaHermandad

          Yes I can. Pardon me if I’m overly inquisitive but is that shooting ban permanent? That seems excessively harsh.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Permanent, as in “Forever”. I am a convcited federal felon on the Terrorist Watch List. My FBI file says “Firearms Expert, Explosives Expert, Chemist, Ex-Mercenary,

  • bluegrass91

    Stop thinking militia, start thinking I.R.A. Stop thinking collapse, start thinking RESISTANCE. Not yet, of course: there’s still a .000001% chance this may go down peacefully, but young racially aware Whites must prepare to be the vanguard when Austerity hits.

    Think less 7.62 rifle as you hide in Montana mountains, and think more of a good old sawed-off double gauge and a getaway van.

    Think less about M.R.E. and post-apocalyptic farming, and think more about how to make a lot of fliers without FEDEX being there for you to make them.

    Not saying being prepared as a militia kind of guy ain’t a good idea, but keep in mind that most revolutions don’t just waltz right in once the house of cards falls. Someone, maybe weaker but maybe even meaner, will be there trying to stop you.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      It is funny you mentioned the IRA.

    • JSS

      Interesting post bluegrass. I can’t predict the future anymore then anyone else but my best bet is that the fate of the U.S. is more along the lines of a Yugoslavia scenario then a Northern Ireland one. The difference being Yugoslavia broke into several different factions followed by a fairly bloody conventional civil war. The Northern Ireland scenario I think is less likely for a few reasons, the U.K. at the time of the troubles was in fact a pretty “united kingdom” Northern Irish Catholics excluded. And the Brits could have crushed the IRA if they had been willing to be barbaric enough. By that barbaric I mean so cruel and bloody that even I would be against treating other non muslim whites so cruelly. And while I don’t think a diversity dominated federal government will have the slightest compunction about exterminating Whites, I also don’t think a diversity Federal government will be able to stop us from breaking away if we just organize ourselves to do so.

      And keep in mind to that once the gibsmedat is gone which it will be once the diversity reaches a critical mass then even diversity itself will be at it’s own throat. In that case Whites will just be one amongst several competing groups in the future when diversity’s free lunch is over. I don’t see hispanics, blacks, muslims, asians, american indians etc being able to hold together some united union to fight White separatist at all.

      • Liberalsuck

        your last sentence and paragraph, for that matter, is spot on. The nonwhites will be fighting amongst eachother and it’s already happening: the mexicans and blacks fight whereever they live together, the blacks attack the asians in their neighborhoods, the middle easterners don’t trust blacks, more and more whites are becoming racially aware and they will fight in the future for their survivial. They will be forced to.

      • WHITE DAWN

        One thing good about us Whites. We can destroy anybody else when we feel like it.

    • Liberalsuck

      A 7.62×39 caliber is one I would recommend, though. That’s what many of the Chinese and Russians use, the ammo is cheap, and it has the same power and ballistics as a 30-30 hunting rifle. As far as a handgun? I would say get a caliber that the ammo is widely and readily available, like a 357/38 Special/45 ACP/40 caliber/9mm, the same way with rifles. Get a 223(5.56) or a 7.62 or a 22 LR or a 308. Point is, get firearms, learn how to use them.

      • WHITE DAWN

        When it comes to the .357/38 Special. All my revolvers are for the .357 Magnum since they take the .38. You aren’t supposed to do the opposite, so don’t buy just a .38. revolver.

        Berreta makes the 92FS 9mm AND a nice rifle, the CX4 which uses the same magazine. Thus you only need one ammo (9mm) and the same magazine can be used in both. So, when you are in a fire fight with the Crips and your local starving Urban High school football team, in a couple of years, you won’t have to search for diff. magazines, HA HA.

      • StillModerated

        I’ve become a huge fan of the .17 caliber. The damage is utterly devastating. The ammo is light so can can carry a lot of it, and it’s pretty cheap.

        • Liberalsuck

          A 22 will kill someone. Off topic here, but I find it funny in the firearms community of gun forums people will say such and such caliber is ‘weak’ to which someone will respond, “Then why don’t you stand in front of someone at the range when they shoot that round?”

  • NYB

    They have it wrong. Gun sales are not up because of fear of a ban.

    Citizens, their freedoms under threat, feel they may have to do their patriotic duty once again. Arming themselves is a spontaneous reaction.

    There is no fear involved, only determination not to be slaves.

    • libertarian1234

      I agree. I seriously doubt people are buying guns thinking they’ll be banned.

      I truly believe people sense this deteriorating empire is going to explode in the near future and they want to be able to defend themselves against the maurading hordes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ran-Kelvin/100000674993311 Ran Kelvin

      Well said and so true. Maybe, just maybe the Clinton ban caused a fear of the ban type response. Not so with this usurper. My only fear is that they want the revolt to happen so that they can single out us, probably whites, and eliminate their only opposition to a Soviet style take over.

    Not really AR material, but it’s worth remembering for those of you who care about such things.

    If you’re ever in a 2nd Amendment debate with a leftist who claims to support the 2nd Amendment, ask him or her this:

    If the Second Amendment was not already part of the Constitution, would you advocate putting it in?

    Then watch brains blue-screen.

    As for this article, Obama’s gun control attempts aren’t really on the legislative level, (and in fact, he signed a bill allowing CCW on Amtrak and in national parks), but for propaganda purposes, he won’t push legislation. No, the real devil will be down on the regulatory level.

    • RisingReich

      I think the brains you speak of are always on blue-screen, but I get your point.

    • Svigor

      The trouble for lefties is the “shall not be infringed” part, which leaves them little room to pretend to be pro-2nd-Amendment while all the while undermining said amendment.

  • libertarian1234

    “The FBI reported an 18 percent spike in firearm background checks increasing in the months leading up the election. Officials say background checks are the leading indicator of sales growth.”
    There are a TREMENDOUS number of guns exchanging hands between private parties in this country that do not require background checks, and a significant number of them were bought at a time when background checks were not required so the FBI and any other agency really don’t know the true sales figures.

    • Liberalsuck

      I’ve bought some firearms going through an FFL background check. It is legal in my state to do private firearms sales, so that’s where I bought a couple others. I would suggest buying your ammo with cash, be it at gun shows, sporting goods stores, private sales, etc. It’s not illegal (yet) to do these in certain states.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      I don’t believe they’ll really try that, and even if they do, the Republicans control the House of Representatives, so such a bill wouldn’t go anywhere. There’s also the question of selling such a law to the public. Violent crime rates are actually declining, so the focus on military-style semi-auto rifles – almost never used in crimes because they are not concealable – is absurd. Gun control has been a thoroughly toxic issue for Democrats, it costs them elections, and they know it.

      Even as a public health issue the injuries caused by the intermediate-powered ammunition fired by military-style semi-autos are over-rated. The 5.56mm NATO round is nowhere near as destructive as .303″ British, and the Lee-Enfield is dead-reliable and has a very fast action. There’s also the issue of the sheer numbers of firearms that would be affected. The M-1 carbine is on the list. Six and a half million of these were made, and the safe bet is that approximately a third are currently in US civilian hands. How many Kalashnikov and AR-15 clones have been sold here? How would guns to be forfeited be gathered up? The police couldn’t simply go door-to-door; the Fourth Amendment allows a search to be conducted only when a judge has signed a warrant after investigators establish probable cause. That leaves cops needing a separate warrant for every building in the US. The courts don’t have enough man-hours available to do that.

      The desire on the part of some Democrats to do this also ignores how easy it is to produce firearms in any reasonably-equipped machine shop. If one is willing to use shotgun ammunition, the low operating pressures mean one doesn’t even need high-grade materials. A 12-gauge assault shotgun based on a scaled-up PPS-43 or STEN submachinegun action would be easy to produce. The barrel would be standard commercial 3/4″ i.d. seamless steel tubing, and one could probably make the receiver out of welded galvanized sheet steel or even plastic. Action would be simple blowback. Even a centerfire rifle could be produced using cheap materials; the rifled barrel would be the only hard part. The French Chauchat light machinegun of World War One was built cheap, and while it wasn’t a good weapon, it worked. The long recoil operation has been criticized, but this spread out the firing stresses so the gun didn’t beat itself to pieces. The only real mistake was the magazine. A flat top-mounted drum magazine like in the American/British Lewis or in the later Russian DP would have worked perfectly with the odd-shaped 8mm X 51R Lebel round.

      I smokeless powder production was shut down, an “ersatz” propellant powder would be easy: the Austro-Hungarian army fought through World War One using not nitrocellulose smokeless powder, but a simple mixture of 85% ammonium nitrate and 15% powdered charcoal. It was nearly smokeless and very cheap to produce. Bullets for a rifled weapon could be lathe-turned out of bronze or copper bar stock, or perhaps aluminum some of the tougher plastics could be used, with or without a hard steel core made out of a machine bolt with the head milled off. The original bullet for the Spanish CETME rifle in 7.92mm X 40 caliber was aluminum.

      An educational read on the subject is “Improvised Modified Firearms” by Truby and Minnery (Paladin Press, 1992).

      Even air rifle projectiles are devilishly simple and cheap. Instead of paying 40 cents apiece for darts for my Beeman air rifle, I make them using Johnson’s cotton swabs. These I cut in half to produce two identical pieces 1.5″ long. I use 3d 1-1/4 inch wire brads as the tips, after cutting the swabs in half. I remove the heads of the brads with pliers and then glue them backwards into the hollow plastic shafts for an overall length of 2″. The cotton tuft on the end is exactly the correct size for a .177″ air rifle, and they’re murder on rabbits. Due to the light weight of these darts, muzzle velocity is very high; my Beeman will send them through 3/4″ composite board at 20 feet. When they break or the cotton wears out, I salvage the wire part for reuse in a new shaft. I wrote about this for Wikipedia in their airgun article.

      What liberal democrats are ignoring with their gun-ban fantasies is that America has produced some of the most successful and prolific weapons designers of the last
      150 years: John Browning, James Lee, David Williams, Eugene Stoner, Thomas Johnson, Melvin Johnson, Isaac Lewis, and so-on. John Browning’s work alone would fill a book. Americans are naturally a creative, resourceful people and there is no good reason to expect this will change.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      The really entertaining thing is that whenever Democrats announce they would like to do something like this, the level of distrust spikes, which drives up gun and ammo sales: the precise opposite of what the liberals would like to see happen.

      I think that much of the time, anti-gun Democrats are operating on envy. Take California’s ban 8 years ago on all rifles chambered for the .50″ Browning machine gun cartridge, and not just the semi-automatic Barrett M-82. They’re overwhelmingly not being used in crimes, as a $9000 rifle that’s almost five feet long and weighs 30 pounds isn’t suitable for typical criminal activity. Their main civilian use is target shooting at very long distances, a purpose for which the .50″ BMG round excels. Why does an ostensibly rational adult get worked up over someone blowing up rocks at 1000 yards, instead of the criminal gangs who still use low-end pistols and revolvers for their business? Mental illness and envy, that’s why. The Barrett and other .50″ caliber rifles have not been banned in California because they’re a social problem, but because liberal bed-wetters are intimidated by their size and power.

      The same goes for so-called “assault rifles”. High magazine capacity is intimidating. Rifles with separate pistol grips are intimidating. Bayonets are intimidating (but when was the last time you heard of a bayonet crime?). Attachments like flash hiders and muzzle brakes are intimidating. Folding stocks are intimidating. By focusing on strictly cosmetic features on a type of rifle that has existed for over 100 years – the Mexican Mondragon (1901), the Winchester Model 1905 and the Remington Model 1908 – the left has made it plain that the appearance of weapons is what causes their mental anguish, and not any alleged crime problem associated with them. Perhaps instead of demanding that other law-abiding citizens change their behavior so as not to offend their delicate sensibilities, the left could collectively grow up.

      I won’t hold my breath.

    In South Africa the ANC keeps making it harder and harder for Whites to have firearms. In fact the Street Sweeper shotgun, which was designed for Whites in South Africa, was declared a “destructive device” by Lloyd Bentsen during the Clinton regime, thus depriving law-abiding Whites from having this effective self-defense firearm.

    Make no mistake, you are in trouble, deep trouble and it will make South Africa look like 1950s America. Then there is the Bolshevik element in the government. As I said, DEEP TROUBLE.

      Unfortunately, all semi-auto shotguns with detachable magazines are now “destructive devices” under US law.

      Once I was off federal probation, I rearmed by making myself an electromagnetic coilgun. Since it isn’t legally a firearm, I can have it, and since it isn’t legally a firearm, it also isn’t legally a machinegun. Instead of the capacitors other coilgun experimenters use, I substituted a homopolar generator (a.k.a. Faraday wheel). Power is supplied by a pair of sodium-sulfur bus batteries on an ALICE pack frame. It uses mil-surplus flechettes for ammo; I get about 6100 feet per second, and relaxation of the field inside the projectile seems to be the major hurdle.

      • Liberalsuck

        Yes, shotguns with detachable magazines are “destructive” unlike our military using drones, missiles, bombs, serene nerve gas and fully automatic weapons. (sarcasm off)

    The comments on the original article are great examples of the monumental stupidity of trendy White leftist. Their thoughts are literally “oh no, stupid paranoid people are buying guns ,what should we do” or “Obama didn’t take away guns before so you would have to be stupid to want to buy one now”. I wonder, are they really that stupid and uninformed, or are they more likely upset that Whites are arming themselves and thus may present problems for their 100% diverse White free vision of the future? I think it’s obvious America is a failed state on the road to collapse, hopefully sooner rather then later but the how long is hard to tell.

    I always assumed leftist who are opposed to guns only are because they want Whites disarmed and neutered. If the police started kicking down doors in Compton looking to confiscate guns then these same leftist would cry racism. Everything is about hurting Whites, nothing else. Thus I think most Leftist know America is on the path to ruin, and they don’t really care what comes after as long as Whites are gone and ensuring criminal diversity are the only people with weapons is the best way to make that outcome a reality. So for gentile Whites I would say liberalism is more like a suicide cult then mental disorder.

    Honest question, are most White leftist as totally stupid as the commenters on the original article? I am something of an anti social introvert and don’t meet new people often, so I honestly don’t interact with any and don’t count any among my friends. I doubt many minorities read salon. If Whites can truly be that stupid and unable to think critically or in anything other then bumper sticker slogans and just sneering condensation then maybe liberalism is a suicide cult for the mildly retarded.

    • Svigor

      Lefties are by definition less capable of rational, independent thought than normal folks. Everything comes down to tribalism for them. E.g., people who buy guns are the enemy. Everything they say about people who buy guns flows from that; none of it has anything to do with principles.

      • JSS

        I normally agree with what you say svigor but not on this one. I don’t think White libs consider armed diversity the enemy. I don’t think they have any problem with the bloods or ms 13. I think with them in the end everything comes down to what’s bad for Whites.

      • Liberalsuck

        The people who follow leftist philosophies are very illogical, emotional and prone to be violent when you disagree with them. The people who are at the center of pushing leftist politics and leftist philosophies aren’t stupid. They are smart, deceitful, conniving snakes who know exactly what they’re doing.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Remember that whites who spend a lot of time on the internet are disproportionately young, and most of them attended public school. They’ve just gotten through 12 years (or more, if they went to college) of cultural marxist propaganda. They seem stupid now, but they’re not all beyond saving. Every day, more whites wake up.

    • WHITE DAWN

      JSS, I am like you. I am not sociable, and never have been, since my early teens when I realized the vast majority of fellow teens were total idiots (compared to me).

      I see things TOO clearly and have a hard time playing the social game. So, let me answer your question.

      The majority of people do not think. They feel. They feel first and their thoughts, if they have any, follow their feelings. Now, where do the feelings comes from? Instinct.

      So,If you are not thinking first, nor using thinking as you experience a feeling, then your actions will come from basic animal instinct…..just as most people behave today like monkeys.

      This is bad for Whites and good for Africans in today’s world. Whites have instincts different from Africans since our evolutionary paths were dramatically different. Our Sub-Species developed traits to enable our small hunter tribes to survive multiple harsh winters that culled out the uncooperative and those not intelligently selfish, could not plan ahead, and could not control their sex drives.

      Africans did not need to do any of this. Their constant mild weather and easy food source enable extreme short term thinking and no control over their sex drives. Life was and is cheap to Africans.They also did not need to cooperate for reasons of individual survival. They cooperated to enable raids on other tribes, rather than to deal with extreme weather changes.

      Thus, these Liberals Whites have excellent traits for other Whites. In other words, caring and helping and “peace and love” are excellent traits for Whites helping Whites, but they are the path to slavery and extinction when you have Africans around. The Africans use are kindness and planning to live off us and basically destroy us.

      They are trapped in a Borg Cube where everything, literally everything from the TV News (MSNBC) to the text-books they read (that one by Howard Zinn) is Far Left. Nothing else enters their mind and they are incapable of critical thought from lack of excersizing their mental faculties.

      The works of intellectual right-wingers like Oswalt Spengler, Martin Heidegger, and even Ferdinand Celine are totally outside their realm.

    If I was going to purchase a semi-auto rifle today, I would be tempted to get an AR-15 chambered in either the 6.5mm Grendel or the 6.8mm SOCOM round. The 5.56mm NATO is adequate for urban fighting at close ranges, but doesn’t have much wounding power at long range.

    My pick in a handgun would be the FN Five seveN in 5.6mm X 28. With the FN it should be possible to produce armor-piercing pistol ammunition by reloading empty cases with the steel-cored SS-109 (a.k.a. M855) bullets, though seating depth and cartridge overall length might raise issues.

    I once wanted to experiment with duplex loads (two bullets) for 7.62mm NATO, but never got around to it. Pairs of the 110 grain bullet intended intended for reloading 30 carbine probably would have worked quite well.
