44. Well, duh
Of course they didn't say it out loud. But if you don't think the majority of the ammo hoarders in the time periods listed were moved at least somewhat by the president's race, you're spending too much time reading NRA literature and too little time reading the splc web site.

You're pretty much proving my points about the NRA membership. I don't blame the brass - they're making tons of money spreading fear and lies. But the people who send them money I must admit I have grave doubts about their grip on reality. Clue: Renewing the ban on assault weapons does not mean that pretty soon all guns will be confiscated
