Conservatives have said President Barack Obama is "coming for your guns" and had a "strategy" to get reelected and then "erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights."
But with gun policy again in the news after the Isla Vista shooting, it's worth considering that Obama's legacy on gun control may ultimately be defined by the executive orders he issued in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn. And absent any concerted effort by Congress, the fear that encouraged a spike in gun sales after Obama's election and reelection may have all been for naught.

Obama and his liberal extremist armies will do it through ammo. Have you tried to buy ammo lately? It's high in price and keeps going up. Go try and get some .22 ammo. The same with assault rifle ammo. It's created a black market. They'll do it through the ammo. That's my answer.

"Obama coming for your gun" is some NRA bull that they thought up to increase the gun sales from gullible buyers.
Looks like the sales are higher than ever, lol.
U.S. military and police officers have about 4 million guns total, while U.S. citizens have about 310 million

The Libs are really terrible at everything they do, but they just keep trying over and over again, little by little, forcing us to make one small concession after another until they have what they want.

The 7% that own 65% of the guns in the US are interested in rational justification of a very irrational hobby. It doesn't matter much what the reason is. Anything will do. Obama's liberal extremist armies. ROLMFAO. fool.

With firearms and ammunition.. How much is really needed? and is there a limit in law regarding how many guns someone can posses?
I can see the 'collectors' ideology for the firearms but the vast amounts of ammo? Is it more 'incase of war' or just simply that recreational shooting is very popular as in shooting ranges/hunting or both?
