One of the scarier things that has happened since the election was finalized is the enormous increase in gun sales. Yes, it is good for the economy, but really! People are so afraid that Obama is going to take away their guns that they have deluged the gun shops and gun shows and are arming themselves to the teeth. Apparently, sales of assault weapons are through the roof. Obama is definitely against people owning these weapons, as am I. Why do ordinary citizens have the right to own these guns? Or semi-automatics? Does anyone have a real need for one either to hunt or for personal safety?
