Black Friday gun sales are way up, so much so that the NICS system became overloaded.

Reports from around the country show a strong interest in firearms:

Seemingly oblivious to the fact they’re losing the culture war, the Times calls upon Obama to go after Congress on the issue:

“… Mr. Obama talked about starting “a broader conversation” about reducing gun violence.  The best place to start is in Congress, which has been grossly negligent toward constituent safety for the past 20 years as it bows to the demands of the gun lobby …  Mr. Obama is free of the pressures of campaigning — and free to lead the nation toward sensible laws that can help reduce the flood of guns and related homicides.  The need for strong leadership on this issue is growing as statehouse politicians cave to ever more lethal demands from the gun lobby …”

Congress, however, is not free of re-election worries and that should keep any gun control proposals bottled up, assuming Obama even cares enough about the issue to try and do something on it.

    This constituent’s idea of safety is owning a gun. Of course, the statist douchebags at the New York Times take the opposite view, but defenselessness is not safe, regardless of how politically convenient it is for the leftistas at the Times, who have an agenda that they mean to ram down our throats. May they be extremely disappointed in all their endeavors.

    [...] Sales volume crashes the National Instant Check System. Stops sales. A right delayed is a right denied. [...]

  3. Black (Gun) Friday | Shall Not Be Questioned Says:

    [...] Strong interest in firearms sales in blue states. Overall sales on Black Friday were so high it took down the National Instant Check System, which was unable to keep up with demand for background checks. No related posts. [...]

    “… Mr. Obama talked about starting “a broader conversation” about reducing gun violence.”

    Cook county, Illinois, (Chicago – Obama’s hometown) just imposed a $25 tax all gun purchases. How is that going to address the inner city, African-American on African-American violence that constitutes nearly all the “gun violence” in Cook county (Chicago)? Perhaps they should impose a tax on African-Americans for the violence that they perpetrate. May we “broaden the conversation” to include that discussion? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Douchebags!
