81. Firearms are almost always discretionary purchases
Edited on Sun Nov-16-08 08:17 AM by slackmaster
The money people are spending on guns and ammo is money that is NOT being spent eating out or travelling, attending sporting events, or being donated to charity.

Another unintended consequence of our party's stated policy.

OTOH maybe some good will come of people giving less to their churches.
