Gun Sales Soar In Aftermath Of Newtown Killings

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As so often happens when dealing with the fickle public, the aftermath of the news of the second worst school massacre in US history has led to precisely the opposite outcome to the one desired by the media and at least part of the general population. Because in the backlash for gun control at its tamest, and against weapon ownership of any kind at its most rabid, driven primarily by those who don't own weapons, everyone else decided to think one step ahead and preempt what may soon be yet another governmental subjugation of a constitutional amendment. The result? An absolute surge in weapon sales in the days following last Friday's tragedy.

The Guardian reports:

Karl Durkheimer is more coy than might be expected of a man with a pistol on his hip.

 

Durkheimer's gun shop looks to have enjoyed record sales of semi-automatics – "modern sporting rifles", as he calls them – and handguns at the weekend. But he doesn't want to talk specific numbers.

 

Nor is he terribly keen to speculate on the causes of the sudden demand. But he acknowledges that it probably has everything to do with a man killing two people with an assault rifle last week in a Portland shopping mall less than 10 minutes drive away, and Friday's massacre of 20 small children and seven adults on the other side of the country in Connecticut.

 

"Handgun sales are up substantially and modern sporting rifles are up astronomically," he said after a few days when his shop, Northwest Armory, was packed with buyers sizing up the most popular pistol in the US, the Glock, and the military-style AR-15 assault rifle, which also comes with a pink stock for women. "The people you see are twofold. There are first-time buyers who are in fear of what the future will bring. But most of what you saw is people hedging their bets that there might be a political policy put forward by the liberal side of the government."

 

Durkheimer means his shoppers fear that the shock of the Newtown, Connecticut, killings might cause the public and Congress to support a reinstatement of the ban on some of his most popular lines.

 

That's a picture replicated across the US from California to Louisiana, and even in Newtown where Robert Caselnova said his gun shop saw high demand for assault rifles in the days after the killings. The nationwide increase in sales was reflected in longer than usual delays for legally required background checks which in some cases took hours rather than minutes.

 

The surge in sales is not unusual. Following a mass killing at a Colorado cinema in July, applications to buy guns rose more than 40% in a week. The murder two years ago of six people during an assassination attempt against congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was badly wounded, prompted a 60% increase in gun sales in a single day in Arizona.

And while we have been following the slow and steady rise in gun sales, punctuated by two key events which have sent gun sales soaring, namely the Obama election and reelection, the pick up in sales seen last weekend is unprecedented. And to confirm fears that whether by way of the Second Amendment or not, various chains may halt gun sales, earlier today we got confirmation from Dick's Sporting Goods that they have suspended sales of rifles nationwide:

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (DKS), the largest U.S. sporting-goods chain, has suspended sales of modern sporting rifles in the wake of the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, as the community mourns victims of the massacre.

 

Sales of all guns have been stopped at its store closest to the shooting, the Coraopolis, Pennsylvania-based company said today in an e-mailed statement.

 

Dick’s is pulling the products after 26 people -- mostly children -- were killed during a Dec. 14 shooting rampage at an elementary school in Newtown. The chain, which has more than 500 stores in the U.S., sells guns and ammunition in stores and not online, according to its website.

 

“We are extremely saddened by the unspeakable tragedy that occurred last week,” the company said in the statement. Dick’s is removing the guns “out of respect for the victims and their families.”

Noble gesture, to be sure, but all it is really doing is leading to even greater sales at all other gun retailer outlets. And indeed, as fears that more and more companies may halt sales, the scramble to weaponize themselves, will keep Americans busy for days and weeks to come.

On the question of how gun owners see last Friday's tragedy, the Guardian had this to add:

The buyers regard the Newtown killings as a tragedy, but view any connection to their right to own weapons as a political ploy aimed at depriving them of their guns.

 

"It's terrible what happened. It's just plain evil," said Richard Merritt on the steps of the gun shop after browsing assault rifles with a thought to buying himself one for Christmas to supplement the handguns and hunting rifle he owns.

 

"But there's people trying to use that to say I'm responsible because I own a gun. Where's the connection? The only people making one are doing it for political ends because there's not one of these massacres would ever have been stopped by a law that takes my gun away. But now they're talking about doing that again, I think this may be the time to buy."

 

Durkheimer is sick of gun owners being painted as the problem. Like many, he feels demonised and vilified for the crimes of a few because he enjoys hunting and shooting ranges. That puts him on the defensive when groups campaigning for tightened gun regulation might be better off trying to win him over with assurances that their calls to restrict the sale of assault rifles and magazines that hold large numbers of bullets won't end with the confiscation of handguns and hunting rifles.

 

"It's just another thing that will drive a wedge between us. Instead of the United States being a melting pot it's more polarised," he said.

Well, class warfare in the US is nothing new. And of course, what is most ironic, is that it is precisely the fear of forced, unilateral rejection, by either or all three branches of government, of the original constitution and its various amendments that has Americans scrambling into gun stores. And thus the closed loop nature of the problem: by threatening to take away America's guns, the government is only exacerbating a problem that is steeped in 200+ years of history and is engrained deep in American psychology.

What is the solution?

We don't know, but we do know that the government stepping in confident it can and will fix and regulate everything is precisely what will only make the problem far, far worse.

We do know that heart of the problem is far, far deeper than one or more tragic mass shootings can reveal. In fact the full extent of the problem begins to be unmasked courtesy of the chart we showed yesterday, and which was to be found, ironically enough, in the most recent Smith and Wesson investor presentation.

30 Round PMAGs, the ultimate barter item...

In KronyKomradeAmerika, Cerebus divests out of incredibly profitably lines of business to go on Uncle Sugar's mammary gland.

Here's what we've been told, in the wake of an objective (and subjective) tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School:

1)  The culprit was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, which falls under the category of an autism spectrum disorder via the DSM-IV.

2)  The culprit was anti-social and was inclined towards non-empathy, according to former classmates and others who knew him and/or grew up with him.

3)  It has been reported by several "anonymous" law enforcement sources that the culprit had a history of legal troubles, but this is unconfirmed as any record pre the age of 18 or 17 would have been sealed per juvenile status.

4)  The culprit used firearms, including the primary rifle that he used to murder nearly all of his victims, that he stole from his mother, in furtherance of his sick crimes. The culprit never purchased any firearms in his name, or at all, and therefore never underwent federal or state background checks, nor was he screened or approved for a permit to own or carry any firearms.

5) There are an estimated 300 million firearms of all types, from shotguns to pistols to so-called "black" or "assault" rifles, in the lawful ownership and custody of an approximate 50 million American Civilians, 99.99% of whom never violate the law, let alone harm anyone (with without use of a firearm). Think about that; An incredibly small fraction of a fraction of a percent of owners of fireamrs ever threaten, let alone harm any other person during their lifetime.

Yet, here are anti-RTKBA politicians and an incredibly biased Main Stream Media, in the immediate aftermath of a genuine tragedy, exploiting it by using illogical & specious arguments, irrelevant information and dis-information, and empty rhetoric that is purely calculated to foment public support for their true agenda, which is to chip away at the foundation of a critical element of the 2nd Amendment, and in ways that would not have prevented the Sandy Hook tragedy, I might add.

Senators Feinstein & Schumer, along with Mayor Bloomberg & President Obama have absolutely no intellectual honesty on this subject, and the Main Stream Media yet again shows why it's an institutional failure of the highest order (it does not educate its readers/viewers/listeners, as a cornerstone institution of a true democracy dependent of an electoral process would do, but it spreads misinformation, half-truths and propaganda).

 

While the anti-RTKBA agenda crowd will renew their dogmatic, irrational push to try and legislate away the right to purchase magazines holding more than 10 cartridges of ammunition, they will never want an honest debate on the efficacy of such a piece of legislation, since:

"...of 12,664 murder victims last year, [just] 323 were killed with rifles, according to the F.B.I.’s Uniform Crime Report."

That's correct. 97.5 out of 100 homicide victims last year were killed with handguns, knives, glass bottles, hammers, baseball bats, fists, etc., and not rifles of any kind, let alone "evil, black, assault-y" semiautomatic ones.

I'm quite confident that nearly all the homicides that were perpetrated this weekend in Chicago, land of some of the most restrictive firearm ownership laws -- yet land of an abnormally high homicide rate-- were done so using "low capacity" handguns and revolvers.

The Gun is Civilization
by Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret)

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force.

Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.

People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.

People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.

The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable.

When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation... and that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

Question: What do you get when you breed ignorance with fear.

Answer: Increased gun sales directly after yet another school blood bath.

Ya-know, call me crazy, but I have a suspicion that the increased security being forced upon America might, just might, have something to do with this type of shit.

Fear is a virus which needs to burn itself out. I can't wait for the lights to go out and the muzzle flashes to begin.

I just hope it becomes a reality TV show so I can watch it each night with dinner.

Yes, your questions are indeed valid.

Perhaps it's a Hegelian Dialectic solution to the problem of disarming the US public of semi-auto assault rifles (High velocity rounds).

Semi-auto AR's are more dangerous than machine guns as they are light, very accurate, somewhat compact, and you can pack lots of rounds into tight containers (mags) which can then be stored in vests. Machine Guns tend to be larger, heavier, deliberately inaccurate, ammo requires bags, and you can easily stop sales of link.

There are 310 million people in the USA.  One person used a weapon to kill 26 people.

In other words: 1/310,000,000,000 of the population did something horrible with a gun and suddenly we have to pass EVEN MOAR! gun control laws that affect 309,999,999,999/310,000,000,000 of the population?

Notice also the MSM's careful characterization that the firearms Adam Lanza used were "legally registered" to his mother.   That means he did not access the weapons lawfully (they were not registered to him).  And once he disposed of his mother, his status was that of murderer.

So the accurate description of the lunatic who shot up the kids, at the time of his entry into the school, was that of a murderer who had seized weapons unlawfully

Yep, it was intentionally skewed from the beginning by The Main & Very Lame Main Stream Proxy of Propaganda.

An accurate headline would have been along the lines of "[D]evelopmentally Disabled*, Firearm & Black Ops Video Game Obsessed Sociopath Kills Own Mother, Steals Firearms & Goes on Horrific Killing Spree."

*I use the term "developmentally disabled" because that's how the culprits own brother reportedly referred to him.

 

p.s. - Who here wants to debate whether a 12 gauge shotgun would be nearly as lethal, IF NOT MORE SO, in the unfortunate, grim statistical bracket of fatalities, if something such as a Mossberg 590 were used instead of an "evil, black, semiautomatic assault" rifle, under similar circumstances?

He was probably taking an SSRI or Ritalin/Adderall, most of which affect your norepinephrine levels.  High levels of norepinephrine are associated with high functioning from a learning standpoint (shooter was a smart kid) and akathisia, which is characterized by heightened aggression and dissociative behaviors.  These symptoms can be aggrevated through increased agonism (ie., flow) through NMDA-glutamate channels, which can be affected by diet (stuff like MSG, hydrolized proteins, protein isolates, etc.).

I watched a PMAG video on a retailer site. I "ain't" telling you where because they have them still in stock.

They tested PMags against other comparable mags like metal USGI, metal HK's, Thermolds, Orlites and maybe Lancers.

Some guys ran em over with a bigger Chevy pickup.   They ground em with the front tires.  they did burnouts with the rears.  PMags held up. 

They had a video GI's in that hellhole Iraq (bring em ALL home now Dear Mullah O).  They were running em over with HummVees.  The PMags held up which was insane.   It finally failed with a high speed pass by a HumVee.   The Hummers are now mega heavy crew cab pickup trucks.   They must weigh at least 8,000 lbs now.

  You've illustrated a point many of us here are painfully aware of.  It's nearly impossible to sway someone with facts once they've committed to a particular belief or agenda.  In the early 90's, in my home state of Illinois, the governor backed a bill to ban the possession of "assault rifles" .  According to the uniform crime report at the time, only 14 deaths by rifle had occured here in the previous year.  The report gave no info on what types of rifles they were.  What an idiotic waste of time and taxpayer money. The current governor is pursuing the same path based on emotional pleas to legislators and the public.  It's easier to do that, than to address the second worst state deficit, and ongoing corruption evidently.   Illinois is home to major gun manufacturers like Springfield Armory, Armalite, and Rock River.  I'm sure they will figure out a way to keep collecting tax revenue from those makers of evil black guns, while doing everything in their power to ensure Illinoisans can't own them.  The thought of it makes me sick.

The best part about LMT is that if you can tell your wife you merely bought some more tools from "Lewis Machine & Tool Company" if she sees the charge on your credit card statement.

And yes, the .308 they're providing to the Brits is quite accurate and extremely reliable.

The media seems so desperate to push their masters' gun control agenda.  The only problem is, a large number of people just aren't buying it.  Instead, what they are buying is more guns, mags, and ammunition.  I happen to think that that, too, is an irrational gesture, but it seems awfully hard to communicate with our representatives in government these days.  Going out and buying a gun sends a really clear message about "shall not be infringed" though.  And honestly, why should my rights suffer because some mental piece of trash committed a violent crime?  And spare me all the warm fuzzies about how difficult it is to deal with mentally ill people--as long as they make no overt threats to anyone else, that is one thing.  As soon as they become violent, that is quite another.

I was in my early teens back in '94, had gone to a gun show with my mom prior to signing of the assault weapons ban.  Begged her to buy me an UZI ($1500 at that time) for investment purposes/to preempt the gov when I would be old enough to own it.  Not surprisingly she did not.  I did however buy a couple 25rd mags for my Ruger 10/22.  When I sold it a few years later, that was a strong selling point and increased the value of the package.

 Believe me, this is still fresh in my mind and I guarantee it is in the mind of others who are old enough to remember.  Any talk of gun regs and sales are going to go through the roof.  Good time to learn gunsmithing I suppose, not everyone knows how to take care of their firearms.

Yeah, always the lone ranger fantasy of Americans. Like how many said if people had weapons on that theatre where the batman shooting occurred, everything would be fine (disregarding smoke, darkness of the theater and later police intervention not knowing who was the original shooter).

This post and these sort of comments are the true cognitive dissonance.

It's not that America is particularly more violent than other similar countries. It's just more lethal. Because it's a society permeated with guns.

Damn, I live in a country who had multiple coup de etat, who had a dirty war were 30000 just vanished from the face of the earth and all. And if you speak to everyday people NOBODY would be telling you the gun fantasies I see from Americans. Thank heavens over here weapons are not socially acceptable. And thus we have a lot less gun deaths per capita than the US, even though we still have violent crime of sorts...

And freedom wasn't won from the Juntas by the force of arms, but by the force of the people TOGETHER and the awful missteps that military govt commited. Should be a lesson to all those fatty military wannabes in their "liberty" militias or whatever. Freedom was communally won, not through individual gun toting fat-asses. Not even through guns.

I can't remember the last time America had 30,000 people vanished and multiple coup de 'etat...wait a minute...never. Great advertisement for guns you have there, paco.

And regarding the Aurora shooting, here's some facts to put in your pipe of douchebaggery:

The ONLY effective countermeasure to active shooters has been the sole responder. 2/3 of the time the responder was a civilian, and 80% of the time that person was unarmed.

There has not been a single active shooter scenario where multiple police officers gathered together and went into the building to stop the shooter, because by the time police arrive and organize, it's over.

Maybe the reason why you see "lone ranger fantasy" is because in the real world, you're probably going to be on your own. And you can hope that you packed your balls that day, because you're going to need them.

Communal force of the people is horseshit - freedom is won by individuals who band together with a common purpose.

"And freedom wasn't won from the Juntas by the force of arms"

Perhaps not in your neck of the woods, but there are examples where it was, specifically Cuba and Nicaragua.  More to the point, it's not about winning so much as raising the cost to your oppressors to the point they think twice.  It's also about dignity.  The Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto had no chance of victory and yet they fought to the bitter end.

Guru Gobind Singh, 10th guru of the Sikhs and founder of the Khalsa made this a matter of doctrine for all who follow the Sikh Panth.  "When all else fails, it is righteous to take up the sword."  You can't do that if you don't have a sword, and if they try to take that from you, it's safe to say that all else has failed and to go down fighting.

Live as a slave if you wish.  Slave to the old order, slave to the new.  It makes no difference.  Like they said in Russia.  Today me.  Tomorrow you.  Your only real choice is how you respond.

We haven't been given any indication of the kid's motives.  The Asperger explanation is BS.  I know people with Aspergers who are good, level headed individuals, love kittens and wouldn't hurt a fly. So let's not start stigmatizing people with Asperger's, who in some ways are more critical and less emotional thinkers than the average member of the electorate.

Let's see. Tarantino makes a movie that caters to 13% of the population and possibly offends most of the rest. Voting with your feet could have a powerful effect on this.

Great story, thanks.  Doesn't fit their narrative...

The controlled media (which we have all seen how powerful its propoganda generation is through the last two Ron Paul campaigns) is now saying there is a majority support for gun control (because we're a democracy, not a Republic right ?!?!? WTF...) and gun sales are falling and stupid "Elmer (I hunt and hunters don't need no assault rifles) Fudd" politicians are now ready "to talk", and the brainwashed "progressives" who feel the need to "civilise" the country through disarmament are juxtaposed against the reality of sales and background checks going ballistic (pmag 30's are getting mighty hard to find in stock) while more and more Americans are arming themselves and saying "that's it, you can't have them."

The PTB really want to start a shooting fight.  If that happens then they can really crack down as the gloves are off.  The police state apparatus is in place.  Internal TSA weapons checkpoints on our highways (but no armed guards at schools).  They need to have a use for those municipal police who have armored vehicles with .50 Brownings turret mounted on top right?  What better use than driving through the walls of some "right-wing, crazy prepper-hoarder, mentally unstable bitter clinging, backwards Constitutionalist gun-nut who doesn't understand the Founders were talking about hunting with musketts when they wrote the Constitution, and should be killed outright,"?

Thanks 'takeaction'. Here are 2 more examples: armed Israeli mall shoppers thwarting 3 armed terrorists planning a multiple site attack, and 2nd, after hearing shots,  Mississippi high school principal Joel Myrick running to get his gun from his car (campus was, until then, a 'gunfree zone'), confronting the shooter who was next planning to go shoot up the junior high, who then hit a tree trying to escape armed Myrick, and was held at gunpoint until the police eventually arrived:

Many are surmising why obama censored out from his other massacre references the 13 dead/29 wounded Fort Hood massacre, "the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001" (Senate report), by Palestinian descendant, Islamic extremist and Anwar al-Awlaki petitioner, Nidal Malik Hasan?

John Lott has done the worldwide math on gun control (it doesn't add to zero), and it is sickening to watch exploitive american leaders from president on down jawbone citizen taxpayers along what will be one more wasteful, dead end, bureacratic and tragic road which eventually the entire country will have to walk back.  The answer is hiding in plain sight: Israel encouraging some 1/3 of its populace to remember to carry their guns, resulting in the world's lowest homicide/attack rates.

Pelosi + "guns" = Jeffrey Christian + "silver"

I bet Pelosi is a big advocate of silicone "guns".  Y'know, double-Ds for all along with matching botox cheeks.

I've been saying it for years, these old broads need a good reaming to take the edge off. They would soon drop these rabid agendas they have.

Ok then, how about you take one for the team and give Ms. Pelosi a ride on your baloney pony. Thanks in advance.

 

I'm curious as to the primary payment method for all these gun sales...credit cards?

Well it's 50/50, but I would chance it. The way I see it, it's Pelosi, nobody has probably been near the cooter for fear of the mouth and personality attached to it. That being the case it may be pristine and quite lovely. Or it might have teeth.

2013 will be the year of anti-prepperism.  

Drones will focus their efforts primarily on preppers.

Guns will be taken away.

Gold will be impounded.

Food reserves will be confiscated to save the Obama minions.

Then you will have all out civil war.  We'll call it 'The Drone Wars'.
