Did any Patnet'rs go out and buy an AR15/AK47 because of the possible ban?

By Scagnetti   2012 Dec 30, 5:39am   5,061 views   23 comments   watch (0)   quote      

Just curious if anyone went out to buy any type of modern sporting rifles (AR15, AK47, M14, etc.) for fear of any future firearms restrictions or ban? I bought another AR15 the day after the Sandy Hook shooting (pre-panic price), and from what they are selling for on gunbroker.com, I could more than double my money! I wish I would have picked up some more 30 round magazines and possibly some more ammo though. Prices out there are crazy so I'll have to wait! Check it out! What do you haters think of my purchase?

I'm still waiting for the TR-116:

That micro-transporter is hella cool!

EDIT: Those that hit the dislike button - you DO realize this is a fictional weapon don't you?

You're right, that is cool! You know what else is cool.....I also bought this concealed/disguised knife. Looks like a normal spoon huh?

Nope...it's a 2.5" serrated blade tactical knife! Boo ya!

Every retailer sold out of the AR-15 from the Pacific to the Atlantic down to the Gulf Coast.

I think so...For those that are sitting on some nice modern rifles, you may want to sell off some excess. People are making a killing on them! It's not just rifles either, but magazines and ammunition!

I prefer my forced modulated laser pistol.

Granted, it does look like a dildo, but it will incinerate up to 12,000 feet.

What does it incinerate? People's buttholes?

Isn't it ironic that the more the government pushes to restrict these types of items, the more demand there is for them. I bet people stocked up on whiskey too right before prohibition.

I had a very similar thought. I think it looks like the ultrasound's dildo-cam at the OBGYN's office.

Damn, the guv'mint is smart! Now the Army and National Guard can sell off their armories. The profit will easily fund medicare, Social Security AND enable tax cuts for the 0.001%

No semiautomatic assault rifles for me. The sound of one firing attracts other zombies.

I did however purchase a couple of crossbows and lots of arrows. Whisper quiet and you can retrieve the arrows for another kill if you run out!

Get one of these babies and you'll WANT the sound to attract more zombies!

They prohibited alcohol and created huge mafia they couldn't defeat until alcohol was legalized again.

They prohibited drugs and created huge drug cartels that are impossible to stop unless drugs are legalized again.

Now they are shooting for weapons, I really think our government is either completely sinister and is in on this with the cartels or just plain idiotic.

They can't pass such a legislation quietly without someone making a stink about it. Republicans won't go along with writing off 2nd amendment.

This is just the LEFT making all this noise about trying to ban guns, because they can't accept the social failures of our society. It's much easier to scapegoat and to blame someone... in this case the gun owners.

Hurting people who bear no blame... that's what the LEFT is good at, ban something, hurt someone in the process, feel good, accomplish nothing, and move on.

Maybe they are sinister idiots colluding with the cartels?

After Fast & Furious I'm not sure if it's too far fetched... they flat out armed these cartels.

I don't know, would be an interesting statistic to see. I'm an existing gun owner, but I saw several folks at the local gun shop taking permit test... might just be everyone shopping.
