If we had a black man as President, I may agree with you. however, his mother was as white as fresh snow in the Kansas prairie she grew up in. His
father is black in the true African sense of that description and the skin tone is proof of the dominance of that gene in his case ...however, to call
Barack Obama black as if that fit him as an identity is simply ignorant to his birth and heritage as a man.
What any of this has to do with the purchase rates of firearms by American citizens IS beyond me though. People aren't running out when times are
extremely hard for most, money is tight for ALL and spare cash is a distant memory ...to buy very expensive luxuries like firearms...all for baseless
and senseless paranoia or some misguided ignorance about the race of the President.
If, somehow, that IS driving this, though?? Well, it needs to be a national priority to identify and SOLVE those problems causing such a high degree
of angst and stress to people from coast to coast and all over our nation. Perhaps that stress comes from Washington. Perhaps close in one's own
Statehouse. However, the numbers here show it's a very REAL thing and it's not a healthy one.
If the gun grabbers would stop the panic and rah rah B.S. talk? Perhaps fewer guns would be bought in panic-buying, hence less guns on the "street"
and an EFFECTIVE method of gun control.
^^ Of course, that would require a politician to shut up for more than 24hrs. Not likely to happen in my lifetime, so I guess I need to see about
buying some stock in the gun manufacturers. Their future seems bright in an otherwise dark night of economic bad news.
