Know Your Enemy: Tea Party News
As per guns, we think all guns should be banned or there must be a level playing field--everybody must pack! We must be able to defend ourselves and our families from White boys gone mad or black boys gone mad! But America is the world's number one gun seller, after all, mass murder is big business for these global terrorists and their permanent wars with over a thousand military bases around the world. Now the chickens are coming home to roost, so just be prepared, the Tea Party ain't started yet! --Marvin X
(Bloomberg) – With President Barack Obama endorsing sweeping gun restrictions in the wake of the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, prices for handgun magazines are surging on EBay (EBAY) and semi-automatic rifles are sold out at many Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) locations. Enlarge image U.S. President Barack Obama
Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, said yesterday that it would continue to sell guns, including rifles like the one used at Newtown, where 26 people, most of them children, were killed on Dec. 14. By contrast, Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (DKS) suspended sales of similar guns at its more than 500 stores.
Searches of five kinds of semi-automatic rifles on Wal- Mart’s website showed them to be out of stock at stores in five states, including Pennsylvania, Kansas and Alabama. Wal-Mart doesn’t sell guns online, instead asking customers to input a zip code to see if their local store carries a specific weapon.
“We remain dedicated to the safe and responsible sale of firearms in areas of the country where they are sold,” David Tovar, a spokesman for Wal-Mart, said yesterday. He didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on this story.
Wal-Mart has about 10 modern sporting rifles, the gun industry’s term for firearms that look like an M-16 military rifle, listed on its website. The retailer removed a description and picture of the Bushmaster AR-15, which was the model used in Newtown, after the shootings.
In 2006, Wal-Mart reduced the number and variety of guns it offered in stores, and replaced them with more upscale products such as exercise equipment. It then reintroduced firearms to many stores in April 2011 as part of strategy to add merchandise back to shelves and revive sales growth at its Wal-Mart locations in the U.S. Gun Revenue
The move may have helped as U.S. Wal-Mart stores posted their first gain in same-store sales in more than two years in October 2011. Wal-Mart doesn’t disclose how many guns it sells, though at an analysts’ meeting in October it said gun revenue gained 76 percent in the first half of this fiscal year. The chain advertised a Sig Sauer M400 as one of its Black Friday doorbusters last month, offering the rifle for $50 off at $867.
Cabela’s Inc. (CAB), an outdoor retailer that also sells guns, didn’t return several calls seeking comment on whether it planned to change its firearm policies. Hunting equipment, which includes firearms, made up 41 percent of Cabela’s sales in 2011, according to a company filing. The retailer doesn’t provide sales data for just guns. Prices Tripling
On EBay Inc.’s auction website, shoppers have recently bid up gun magazines. The current bid for four Glock handgun magazines, ammunition for one of the guns used at Newtown, is $118.37 compared with $45 on the day before the shooting. The bid for seven Glock magazines hit $201 on Dec. 17 from $71.01 before the massacre.
Gun buyers have flooded other firearms retailers too. The Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte, North Carolina, racked up more than $1 million in sales yesterday for the best single-day performance since the store opened in 1959, according to Justin Anderson, director of online sales. At the top of shoppers’ lists was the Bushmaster AR-15, the model of rifle used at Newtown that sells for as much as $4,000 and had almost sold out, he said.
Revenue at one of the largest U.S. gun stores surpassed even the spike just after Obama was elected president in 2008, Anderson said in a telephone interview. Sales weren’t as robust when Obama was re-elected last month because the president hadn’t backed major new gun laws, he said. ‘Concrete Proposals’
Today, Obama said his administration would come up with “concrete proposals” by next month to curb gun violence.
Speculation over stricter gun laws will continue to boost sales, Anderson said yesterday.
“It’s kind of the perfect storm for the gun industry,” he said. “When these things happen, even though it’s sad, it does pick up sales.”
Wal-Mart has received some pressure to curb gun sales in the past. That continued this week when Lauren Buglino, a fourth-grade teacher from the Bronx, created an online petition on Change.org exhorting the retailer to stop selling rifles like the one used at Newtown. It had more than 57,000 supporters today.
Wal-Mart entered into an agreement in 2008 with the Mayors Against Illegal Guns that included video recording of purchases and the use of databases to identify people who have bought guns recovered in crimes.
When Wal-Mart added guns to stores in 2011, Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston criticized it for trying to increase the number of guns on the streets, according to the Boston Herald.
Menino and Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The mayor is founder and majority owner of Bloomberg News parent Bloomberg LP.
Get ready. They’re coming for your guns. We knew it would happen and the time is here. The scourge on gun owners has begun. Right now government gun grabbing plans are being covertly organized.
It is the truth and the Tea Party is hearing the battle cry of U.S. Citizens:
"Do NOT let the government take our guns!'
This insane attempt to gun grab is being fueled by the U.N., the Obama Regime, Global Communists and The New Socialist Party - of which, I might add, Barack Obama is still an active card carrying member.
IF YOU VALUE YOUR RIGHT TO CARRY AND YOUR RIGHT PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY...YOU MUST READ THIS
Our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is in grave jeopardy. That profound and inalienable right is being shoved aside as our Constitution gets trampled and Old Glory is turned into a laughing stock, a mockery of America.
You better believe it when I tell you that Barack Obama and his commie buddies are hell-bent on seizing, not just America’s guns...but our will to resist.
You see, the Global Communists’ dream is to disarm America so WE THE PEOPLE can’t fight back when they finish annihilating our rights. Gun ownership is in perilous danger of extinction. Obama is getting worried that he can’t deliver on his global communist promises to his liberal progressive masters regarding the disarmament of America - and his desperation is mounting.
It is time to stand up and say:
"NO! YOU WILL NOT TAKE OUR GUNS!'
We need to stand together to protect our
Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Now that Obama has been elected for a second term he’s going to turn up the heat.
Here’s what he’ll do... Incrementally, he will attempt to grab our gun rights.
a ban on a select type of weapon.
Then it will be a ban on the manufacturing of certain types of bullets.
Then it will be severe limitations on the amount of ammo you can buy.
It will go on like this - he will eat out the heart of the Second Amendment unless we stop him and his minions!
But, I will tell you right here and right now: We’ll be damned if we will let him get away with it. WE stand with them and WE will not be bullied out of gun ownership or our right to bear arms. Obama will try an end-run around the Constitution within the next few weeks, but we’ll be waiting for him.
"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading."–Thomas Jefferson
Of all the half-assed notions spewed from the vile recesses of liberal sink-tanks comes the unfounded idiotic notion that the Second Amendment CAN be infringed upon by the limitation of States rights - or by denial of Second Amendment rights to our citizens and our military men and women!
Obama’s toxic rhetoric is not only unconstitutional, but outright unfounded. Not only is there nocase law to establish such outlandish and off-base claims, but it is an insult to anyone who can read the Constitution.
As usual he’s making this sh*t up to serve his own world commie agenda.
GUN GRABBING IS COMING AT AN ACCELERATED PACE FROM MANY DIRECTIONS.
WE MUST ACT NOW TO FIGHT BACK!
TeaParty.org says, "We are proud to stand with Second Amendment organizations and gun owners across America. Together we shall prevail!'
WARNING: the anti-gun coalitions, Communist Party, Neo-Nazis, Washington liberals, politically diseased politicians and the anti- freedom freaks with their feverish lust to remove our fundamental rights will stop at NOTHING.
We cannot sit by and wait or watch idly while they pursue their disgusting agenda. And do NOT, I repeat, do NOT underestimate what they will do.
THE ANTI-GUN PINKOS ARE RESORTING TO:
Condemning military heroes as unfit gun owners
Using tragic events to peddle their anti-freedom wares.
Forcing child indoctrination against gun ownership
Fueling foreign disasters to invoke public sympathy against the Second Amendment
Employing media broadcasts to infuse guilt and shame, targeting firearms owners
Perverting the meaning of the Second Amendment by politically diseased politicians
Persuading dirty judges to rule in a jaded manner on gun critical cases
Vilifying gun shows as unsafe, illegal, dangerous and illicit.
THE ANTI-FREEDOM, ANTI-GUN MOB IS GROWING
...but we’re bigger and more powerful!
The United Nations agenda is pushing to disarm all Americans. Think about it: why would they do that? For POWER over the people. To make American citizens defenseless so when they put their commie conversion plans into action, we have no way to defend ourselves or to fight back!
WE THE PEOPLE MUST NIP THIS IN THE BUD AND DO IT NOW! BUT HOW?
I know this is not an easy topic and the thought of gun grabbing should scare the bejezus out of you. It does me. I assure you that there is help - a way to fight back hard and win! The Tea Party is committed to preserving the Second Amendment right of the people to keep and bear arms.Every time socialism and vile One-Worldism rears its ugly head we must slap it down. Body-slam the anti-freedom idea to the mat! It is time to take-off the gloves. WE THE PEOPLE must send Washington a message they will never forget. They need to hear us loud and clear. I told you moments ago the Tea Party is committed to your constitutional right to keep and bear arms and we are doing something about it.
Our Tea Party Combat Conservatives have created a powerful fax blast that will shake Washington to the core!
We named this fax blast after the noble 45 caliber. We call it the "45-GUN FAX."
That’s right. This new fax blast will knock your socks off and theirs, too. Well, actually it is going to knock the notion of gun grabbing and Second Amendment annihilation right out of their beady little heads.
Yep, it’s HOT! Searing and blistering hot. And, we’re going to send it to all 100 Senators and 435 Members of the House of Representatives
Send it to all 100 Senators and all 435 Congressmen for a total of 535 faxes to the Washington establishment!
GunOwnership1 45 Gun FaxI want to tell you that for some of our other Fax Blast Washington programs we receive a $57.00 donation, but because we’re SO PISSED OFF we want to send 535 faxes in your name for only: $45.00. That’s it! You save $12! All I can say is WOW!
That $45.00 represents the Second Amendment, gun owners and gun owner and activist groups all over the USA. What a way to honor our gun friends than with a fax named after the .45 caliber!
READ THIS: The "45-Gun Fax' is waiting for your approval! If you like what you see, then lets blister Washington and let them know we are going to stand our ground. NO ONE and we mean NO ONE messes with our gun rights. WE THE PEOPLE RULE.
"I am deeply concerned Washington thinks they are in charge. We must remind them they are our day laborers and they do our bidding" Steve Eichler – CEO/Tea Party www.TeaParty.org
You, my friend and fellow Patriot, have seen for yourself the threat that is now at the door.
Gun shows are in jeopardy...
Gun ownership is on the brink of collapsing...
Gun ownership databases are being prepared for installation...
To make matters worse, the president is siding with the U.N. and their anti-gun and anti-freedom agenda!
