Channel 2 news here in Houston just reported that the FBI ran 129,000+ firearms background checks on Black Friday! Maybe we should rename it to "Black-powder Friday"!!

At one point after Obama got elected, I expected gun sales to surge and then eventually settle down. The fear factor however has turned from one of no longer being able to get the type of guns you may want, to one of actual fears of needing guns to protect yourself and your loved ones because of the policies brought about by those currently in DC and the economic mess not just in the USA, but the world in general. I've seen person after person who never had a desire or inclination of owning a gun now buying and asking for help or training with a gun. More women are now arming themselves. Many of these are senors. It doesn't speak well for the world we are living in today....but I'm proud of those who refuse to be willing victims!

Saw that too...

Black Friday in 2008 got 98,000 background checks for firearms!

BTW, where's Dominique? She's the only reason I watch channel 2 :)

One of those background checks came from my wife's new gun purchase. Tomorrow I'll tell her she's an important statistic.

Definitely a good statistic to see. Now if criminals would look at that stat, maybe they'll keep their heads low and learn how to shoot a gun properly for once. They're definitely gonna need it.

Not sure where she is and definitely understand what you are saying! I watch in the mornings just for the traffic report...Jennifer Reyna!

Call me crazy but I feel adversity breeds innovation and makes us stronger and I think *IF* our country survives this dark time were in (and have been for awhile) that our nation and Americans as a people will be better for it. I pray we will be anyhow...
