CA gun show draws 10,000 people ‘getting ready for the next revolution’

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/01/12/ca-gun-show-draws-10000-people-getting-ready-for-the-next-revolution/



What drew an estimated 10,000 people to a Northern California gun show? Simple. According to one attendee, they’re scared.

“Obama wants to take everybody’s guns away,” said Bob Daziel, who stood in line with hundreds on Saturday to get into the Crossroads of The West event in Daly City, California. “So they’re down here buying ammo, buying guns, they’re getting ready for the next revolution.”

Organizers told KGO-TV they were surprised at the record turnout, believing it to be spurred on by the recent discussions headed by Vice President Joe Biden regarding gun safety.

“It was constructive dialogue,” said Bob Templeton, the event’s president, who attended the meetings this week between Biden and members of the firearms industry. “But I think they had their minds made up when they came in the meeting.”

3. Of course they're scared.

Why else would they arm themselves to the gills?

4. Morons

In any case, all these "look at how many guns people are buying" stories are meant simply to dissuade us from doing anything about this public health crisis because, well, "it wouldn't matter anyway." The gun nuts are whistling past the graveyard - so to speak. Move forward with stringent legislation, and we'll see how they crow about their packed gun stores and shows.

6. They want to use fear to scare other Americans into adapting their political agenda.

"I got a gun. Do you want to argue with me? Obama wants to take our guns."

10. Riddle me this, oh gun-owning paranoiacs : If Obama is going to take all

of your guns away, why waste hard-earned money on a whole bunch more new ones?

HMMMMMM?????

I've yet to hear that question asked of this group.

13. Simple

 

Most new gun control legislation "grandfathers" currently owned weapons and equipment affected by the new legislation.

11. I googled the title to see more local responses.

The story is up on Stormfront, so I guess we can infer what really prompted this excitement here in normally sane NorCal. I'm also going to guess a lot of out of towners made a special trip here to the Cow Palace.

14. I wonder if the Cow Palace officials will verify that attendance figure.

All I've read or heard is the event's organizers spewing that figure. Since in most events at the Cow Palace the State of Ca gets part of the gate I'd like to know if the CP officials will verify that figure. I do not believe anything gun proponents or right wing shills tell me.

15. And the gun manufacturers laugh all the way to the bank.

fear and stupidity are their best marketing tools. Best of all they don't have to lift a finger to push either one of those things. The right wing willfully carries their water.

So bring it, gun-crazies!
