So is this a result of fear of civil unrest, federal government unlimited detention of American citizens, or both. Increased interest in sport shooting is poppycock.

I was driving around Michigan about this time a number of years ago and stumbled across Ted Nugent's show on the radio.

He was plugging a local gun shop with this wrap to the commercial: "And remember, ammo makes good stocking stuffers!".

BTW the picture with Santa is from the Scottsdale (AZ) Gun Club.  If you are ever in the Phoenix area take the time to check it out.  Very nice store and range.  The range has Class 3 weapons (machine guns) available to shoot.  They also have a very large seclection of guns to "rent" there and try on the range.  Gives you the chance to try before you buy.

First of all, Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. Gun manufacturers in the United States are making humongous earnings thanks to the stupidity of these mules.
The Federal government has already a comprehensive -and constantly updated- national database of all gun owners in America, so when it is time to implement Martial Law due mainly to social unrest (Google NSPD51), they will order the surrendering of all weapons in exchange for food coupons – HASTA LA VISTA Second Amendment.
Those who decide not to obey this emergency decree will be considered enemies of the state and a potential threat to National Security, thus all law enforcement agencies in the union (including the US military) will have green light to use deadly force against gun owners who may opt to put some sort of resistance during the confiscation process.
In the end, Americans do not have a single clue of what Martial Law is all about and it will be virtually impossible to educate these brutes about the subject itself.

that depends on whether or not serving military personnel feel like shooting US civilians. Somehow i don't think they will feel like it. In fact i am guessing quite a few will instead feel like shooting whoever gives them the order.

Hugh Clowers Thompson, Jr., DFC, BSM, PH, AM (April 15, 1943 – January 6, 2006) was a United States Army helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. He is most well known for his role in stopping the My Lai Massacre, in which a group of US Army soldiers tortured and killed several hundred unarmed Vietnamese civilians, mutilating their bodies after they had been murdered.

First of all, He isn't well known and secondly, he obviously didn't stop the the My Lai Massacre.

Sun, 12/04/2011 - 02:46 | 1943337 CrockettAlmanac.com

Obviously he did stop the massacre.

 

Thompson: What's going on here, Lieutenant?
Calley: This is my business.
Thompson: What is this? Who are these people?
Calley: Just following orders.
Thompson: Orders? Whose orders?
Calley: Just following...
Thompson: But, these are human beings, unarmed civilians, sir.
Calley: Look Thompson, this is my show. I'm in charge here. It ain't your concern.
Thompson: Yeah, great job.
Calley: You better get back in that chopper and mind your own business.
Thompson: You ain't heard the last of this!
Realizing that the soldiers intended to murder the Vietnamese, Thompson landed his aircraft between them and the villagers. Thompson turned to Colburn and Andreotta and told them that if the Americans began shooting at the villagers or him, they should fire their M60 machine guns at the Americans:[8] "Y'all cover me! If these bastards open up on me or these people, you open up on them. Promise me!"

well according to McCain, who ironically was imprisoned as a POW in Vietnam, we'd just call those villagers 'associated with terrorists', then even if they were US citizens, since the entire world is the battlefield, the president could unilaterally order a drone strike to wipe out the entire village.

It would make no difference if said village was in the mainland of the USA or in Yemen.

"that depends on whether or not serving military personnel feel like shooting US civilians"

It amazes me how many on this site pin their faith on US soldiers somehow being too noble to shoot US civilians.  I'd suggest that that the US military has a long and proud history of killing and maiming civilians, in vast numbers, all over the world.  WTF do you think Hiroshima was?  I'd further suggest that your idea that this would magically stop at our borders is, to say the least, misguided. 

Get real guys.  The military has to be assumed to be the enemy, until it proves otherwise.

Its all kept by the gun dealer...none transmitted to the government (except under certain circumstances)...unless and until you go out of business.  And then it cant be collated.  It is open to inspection.  

 

That is current procedure.  of course this could change at any time.

What "wanklord" fails to take into account is that

a) America is chock full of military veterans armed to the teeth and fully aware of why the framers of the constitution decided to add the 2nd amendment;

b) a good percentage have stocked up on food and water, so food stamps for guns won't mean shit; and

c) the vast majority of the military will not obey an unconstitutional order - this is part of the "obey LAWFUL orders" that is drilled into the heads of American servicemen.  

That's what "wankers" outside the US haven't quite figured out: "the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

Why all the fuss? It's just Wanklord speaking out of turn again.

Gun laws vary a great deal according to which State you reside in.

Over the last twenty years or so, I have bought and sold dozens of guns via flea market, yard sale, and estate sale.

Hell, Wankie, I've even taken them in trade for handy man work once. I've never needed to provide identification unless buying from a licensed dealer in a brick 'n' mortar location.

so that means you need to have a lot of weapons so that you can get a lot of food ...

You have the idea.

One has one legally registered weapon that can be seized.

One also has 300 other weapons that are NOT registered and stashed in a safe location.  All the goobermint knows is what is registered.  They have no idea about all those thousands of guns that have gone missing from police lockers over the years, nor of the unrecovered stolen guns, nor of the guns dropped during street crimes,nor of smuggled weapons.

They only know what they think they know.  Their pronouncements of adequacy are mere bluster.  And the moment they seize the legally registered weapons is the moment all the hidden ones lock and load.

Not saying it won't happen, because the wanabe predators we have in government believe they are infallible in thier supremeness.  I'd wager there are way more individuals in Virginia alone that believe in their sovereign, god-given rights than there are bureaucrats in DC.  I imagine the House cleaning will be thorough enough, though pretty devastating.

Parasites in our government now think they have the power to issue dictates and to enforce those dictates with 'shoot to kill' orders.  They forget thay are outnumbered, in DC, by a factor of millions to one.

The Senate's near declaration of War on American citizens is the last alarm bell.  It's time to lock and load, and start marching, or targeting.

WankLord, Keep in mind. A green light for the government to use force is also a green light for the people. The use of force door swings in both directions. The government does not have a monopoly in this department. This is not Rwanda, or China under Mao,  Russia under Stalin, or Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. Most Americans understand that The People are the sovereigns of the United States and it's our duty to resist tyranny, subjugation, and to remain free using any means necessary. Believe it!

The government IS using force.  100 SWAT raids daily.  Things that one fella used to take care of with a tap on the shoulder and a "please come with me Sir".   Wako?

Yes the government is using force. If you throw out a number of SWAT raids you need to breakdown what the raids are for. Are they looking for heavily armed and violent Mexican drug gangsters? Are they looking for violent armed gang members? Are they looking for terrorists building an IED or a weapon of mass destruction? Are they looking for someone who's parking meter ran out? I don't know. 

One thing I can tell you, this is not Rwanda. We don't have organized groups of terrorists running around from town to town, neighborhood to neighborhood with machetes committing genocide, beheading people, castrating men, raping men & women, cutting womens breasts off, and cutting out nine month old fetuses from mothers. We don't have that here in the US. If crime in my neck of the woods even scratches the surface on that kind of wanton and naked evil, the bandits had better be able to run faster than the 2600 feet/second it would take my .308 Win projectile to reach them. We are not allowing that kind of criminality here.

The way I was taught... In a fight, a sidearm is your secondary weapon used when tactical reloads aren't conducive or your fighting to your rifle.

My friendly advice is to get a good primary weapon (AR variant, SCAR, ACR, etc.) with a good reflex optic (Aimpoint, EOtech) and a matching 3X magnifier with a throw-switch if you want to engage targets at greater distances. Of course plenty of mags and a bench loader will really up your lead dispenser status.

If it ever gets to that, we're all in this together...

Party on!

Michael time to step up your game.  The pistol is nice and works well in the movies, but like Floordawg said you need a rifle.  If you anticipate engagements at you doorstep .223 will be fine.  If you want to have a fighting chance at longer distances go with a .308 AR10 or even a good bolt action gun.  Spend the money for a good optic and good match ammo.  Then practice, practice, practice....
