The Best Barometer of How the Election Will Go in November is Gun Sales

From day one of the violence in Seattle and Portland, President Trump offered federal help but those cities’ mayors and each of the others whose cities were being ravaged declined his offer.  As a result, half of all black-owned businesses in the affected cities have been destroyed by the rioting or lost to the lockdown. It is hard to take seriously the mantra that “black lives matter” when in fact they have become a mere political tool of the left.

Most of the media failed to report on the cold-blooded murder of a five-year-old boy by his adult neighbor. Why? The child was white, the murderer black which does not fit the left’s narrative of the day.  Mayors Bill de Blasio of New York and Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C. are all hat, no cattle, when it comes to actually caring about the lives being devastated by the disorder they have willingly allowed.  As President Trump said last week, “this election will determine the future of private gun ownership in the United States.”

Biden is clearly lost in a fog of confusion due to his mental decline and will say anything his handlers put on the teleprompter but Kamala Harris is as far left a candidate who has ever run for high office; she is Bernie Sanders in a dress.  She and her fellow “progressives”  mean what they say;  they mean to effect a defenseless society.

Will a majority of Americans choose to be disarmed like the Germans under Hitler, the Russians under Stalin and the Chinese under Mao or will they vote to preserve their constitutional right to bear arms? The astronomical surge in gun ownership these past months tells us that no, they will not vote to lose their Second Amendment right.  Self-defense is a human right.  

The left, thoroughly deranged by Trump’s 2016 victory, will gladly see our once civil society destroyed if its destruction will see Trump defeated.  Their plan is doomed to failure.   If gun sales translate to votes, it will ensure his re-election.

    We only need a few percent of the new gun owners to switch to a conservative vote, but we will like get much more.

    Have you seen this video of 5th Ave. in DeBlasio’s NYC? Even Saks is totally boarded!. This world renown shopping district has been abandoned.

    This is how Democrats run cities.

      Even the NYPD police union turned on the democrats and endorsed Trump.

          Well she prosecuted and jailed more of them than I ever would have if I had been in her position and I’m one of those old gun owning white guys. She hid evidence of innocence, something I find despicable and should disqualify her from holding public office. She kept people in prison past the end of their sentences to do labor, again dispicable and the sort of thing that should get her thrown in jail for time equal to the overage she caused other people to serve. She is half Indian (dot not feather), 1/4 white, and 1/4 jamaican. Her ancestors weren’t slaves, they owned slaves and she has publicly stated it. If I were black I would not support her.

          Being in Illannoy, I can tell you that for the state to go for Trump, Chitcago would have to be overcome, and that is highly doubtful. Vast areas of the state south of that urban s***hole are Republican majority, but not enough to make a difference when the fools to the north vote in their typical Democrat fashion.

        6. avatar Dude says:

          Tulsi pretty much ended Kamala’s run in the primary. The media wants you to forget that. Tulsi will probably stay quiet about it because she’s a socialist.

          I was always a bit concerned that Gabbard actually had the best chance, of all the Dems, to beat Trump. She was the only one who at least came across as rational.

          Fortunately, she went straight at the Clinton machine and that’s Dem suicide.

          She could have had widespread appeal. I’d boink her. You’d boink her. Hillary hates her and she’d boink her. And Bill would definitely boink her.

          The ONLY possible rational for Tulsi Gabbard hanging out in the demtard cesspool is to be the only sane person in that freak show. She would be accepted in the Rep party but she would be one of many/several smartish attractive gals. In the Dem party she is unique. Was a marketing theory. Apparently wrong theory. Might have worked 20yrs ago but today dems are too far gone.

      2. avatar Former NYPD says:

        Just to let you know, that just because you never heard an endorsement being given by NYPD’s union president towards republicans in the past, doesn’t mean that WE the officers never voted towards the right. And as a former New Yorker, I can say that we know the Donald better than anyone else in the country. I remember growing up in NYC back in the 80’s, when the city, specifically speaking, the island of Manhattan, was referred to as the city of sins; when drug dealers and addicts, prostitutes with their pimps, homelessness and crimes of all sorts was an everyday part of life. It was then police commissioner William Bratton, under the Giuliani administration, that implemented a new way of policing, which eventually led to the massive crime/vice cleanup the world has ever seen in NYC.
        Donald Trump was the man with a vision, who started to invest heavily in NYC, and prompted (other) real state investors to do the same and invest/develop major projects all thorough the island. Not many people in the 80’s could share his vision, that NYC could rise from the ashes of what it once was, and yet here it is.
        And now, it’s quite saddening for me to witness how all of that hard work is being destroyed by the lack of, or in this case, the p.o.s. leadership currently (MIS)managing the city.
        People say that Trump is responsible for diving this country. NOT TRUE. I reply to that by saying that he’s the one who’s had the guts to show the world how corrupted AND pervasive the democ-rats in this country truly are. You’d have to be blind, mentally challenged and/or very ignorant of the facts, not to see/acknowledge what’s going on in all democ-rat run cities.

      LifeSavor,

      We only need a few percent of the new gun owners to switch to a conservative vote …

      Sadly, I don’t think that will be enough. Remember, sources are claiming that maybe as many as two million people purchased their first firearm in the last six months. That probably represents about 1% of the population that is of voting age. And when you account for the fact that not everyone (of voting age) actually votes, that number of new gun owners is probably something like 0.67% of voters. Even if 3/4ths of those new gun owners abandon voting Progressive and instead vote conservative (I think that is overly optimistic in my opinion), that only represents about 0.5% of voters/votes.

      While I am happy to see any increase in votes that support our natural, inalienable right to keep and bear arms, I fear that an additional 0.5% of votes will not affect the outcome of the general election this Fall.

      I think a much more likely outcome is that a substantial number of people in the ideological middle will punish Democrats at the polls for standing down and allowing the rioting, looting, burning, vicious violent attacks, and murders. Whether or not their punishment takes the form of staying home (instead of voting for Democrats) or actually switching sides and voting for Republicans remains to be seen.

          True enuf Coolbreeze,

          Pro 2A people are now attempting to project their logical thinking upon Democrats, the party of Feminism and feelz. They vote with their feelings and emotions, even if that vote is against their own interests.

          Listen to a quote from their “dear” leader Sandy Cortez; ” I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

          So facts, logic, and truth be damed, its all about ma feelings!

      2. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        Coolbreeze,

        Oh, wow! I think you are spot on.

        As you and others have stated, our common mistake is trying to assign rational thought to people who are not rational — that our irrational political enemies will somehow begin thinking and acting rationally.

        Consider a rapist who expects to easily rape a women only to discover the woman pointing a firearm at him and determinedly saying, “NO!”. At that point, does the rapist reconsider the moral question of rape, determine that the right thing to do is to NOT rape any women, and walk away a reformed person? Of course not. Instead, the rapist either decides to roll the dice — proceeding to attempt to rape the woman anyway and see if she really has the stones to pull the trigger — or the rapist runs away deciding to find an easier woman to rape. Both outcomes are morally wrong and irrational. Just as the rapist will not suddenly begin thinking and operating rationally, neither will our irrational political enemies.

          Saying “people” is to general. This needs to be distilled further, as I intentionally included the word Feminism. It is the feminist mind(set) that is behind this logical and factual failures. This is very important to understand why they come to the conclusions they do.

          I believe that almost all of your assessments are correct. The only point (off the top of my head) where I believe you are wrong is your contention that our nation would somehow be better off with Biden/Harris rather than Trump/Pence.

          For the record, I do not view Trump as a paragon of virtue and readily admit his many failings. I doubt that I would be friends with Trump if we ran in the same circles. The only reason that I vote for Trump is because, of all the viable candidates, he supports/produces the best overall results for the people of our nation. Nothing more and nothing less. I wish others would do the same.

    Wrong, wrong, WRONG. Angry people *vote*. They are enraged, and they will crank the rage up to ’11’ in the run-up to election day to further drive Leftist turnout.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ve seen the worst of the Left’s treachery. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is finally circling the drain. She likely won’t last a year. They managed to frighten Roberts into not voting against them, they may not have the same luck with the rest of the bench. Their legacy is at stake. They will do anything to protect that.

      Absolutely. The press that was obsessed with the imaginary Russia scandal for three years, isn’t even admitting that they were not only wrong, but they’re now doubling down on the fake news by not reporting on the real scandal of democrat, media, and deep state (viva la resistance – who was it that said that?) collusion to derail a presidential campaign, and then take down a president.

      They don’t care if the country burns because they HATE the country. They don’t care if they create racial division because that helps them get votes. They no longer have logical solutions that they can defend. They don’t have to worry about that because they know the corrupt, propagandist media will do everything in their power to lift them, and smear the other side.

    2. avatar Serpent_Vision says:

      Media covered it, and the killer was quickly found, arrested, and charged. Some seem to think it OK to exploit the tragedy to push some narrative about media bias (as if there weren’t ample evidence of actual bias to point out).

        “Media covered it”

        The media waited days to cover this, and then only briefly covered it after they were called out for not covering it. Some still didn’t cover it. Notice the dates:

        That’s the point. Anytime the race is reversed the media is all over it, pushing their white on black racism narrative even if there is zero evidence of it. Why do you think we’re having riots? It’s all based on manipulation by the democrats and the media.

          The “coverage” the media provided is nothing like what it would have been under different circumstances…days of wall-to-wall preening about BLM crap. The child execution received about the same “coverage” as the slaughter of black children each weekend in many major cities.

          Right, Sam, it’s almost as if the race of the victim does not matter, it is the race of the killer that must be reported. Unless, of course, the killer is black, whereupon we delete the entire story.

That’s their power, just like the democrat party has been doing for decades in order to divert from and hide their own racism. It’s time to call it what it is. It isn’t a sea of good people.

    Unfortunately as with All elections it comes down to the Lesser of the Evils. At this time in Our Nations history that is more apparent than ever. Simply because of the divisiveness among the citizenry. Our nation has been rolling down the hill to this point for the last 60 years (since the 60’s). As the Nation divides itself along clear lines of difference in perception of everything from Politics, Religion and Civil Rights. This is nothing new in the history of Nations. It has happened many times over the course of Humanity. After many years of study and research on the history of Government effects on Civilization. It has become abundantly clear that in every case these divisions lead to the same place. Rebellion followed by War followed by the Downfall of the Civilization and a slow rebuilding over time. The Human species has yet in it’s thousands of years of existence learned to live peaceable with itself. Power, Greed, Lust, Fear and Divisiveness have always brought it down to it’s Baser Elements. Violence and Control. If Our Nation can survive the Tumultuous Times We are facing no one can be sure. If not. The consequence as history has shown will be filled with. Pain, Suffering, Destruction and Death. Be Safe Out There Maintain Op SEC ans as always Keep Your Powder Dry

      The mask is off. People need to realize that this won’t be 2008 or 2012 again if Joe wins. Obama was cautious at first because he’s a good politician. Joe already said he wouldn’t run for a second term, and everyone knows there’s a good chance he won’t make it through the first. That would make Kamala the incumbent, and give her an advantage in the next election.

      As I know Trump isn’t responsible for Covid, this is a non-issue to me.

    The fatal assumption that most of the comments operate from is that the election will be relatively honest. The Dems will utilize electronic manipulation of votes, the voting of illegals, the use of gangs (as in NYC and LA) to round up and vote ballots, etc. This will result in at least the delay of the final count of votes on election night. The Dems will then vote in the House to declare Pelosi the presiding President and order the military to force Trump out of office. When the majority of the military does not follow this command (the generals will — but Company grade officers and NCO’s will not), the House will invite in UN “peacekeepers” (Chinese troops). Most probably, the US is about to have a civil war.

      3. avatar LarryinTX says:

        I cannot agree. A coup needs to be quicker than that, if we were moving in that direction, the population of DC would be near 100 million on inauguration day, and Pelosi best not be within 1000 miles. It would be a good day for local police to take a holiday, as well.

          Equality is the gold standard. Equality of poverty is virtuous. Everyone must have little, before anyone can have more. It takes a village to run a village. Each citizen should be responsible for ensuring no citizen falls behind economically. Every dwelling becomes a storehouse for the village, each taking what they need, giving what they can. When everyone is equal, none need bear the shame of few achievements. Some are to produce, some are to consume; each is essential to the other.

      *Renegotiated the job killing NAFTA
      *Appointed two supreme court justices

      *Outed the corrupt former FBI director Comey

      30 years later, there will be almost as many Hispanics as the entire population was in 2040.

    I wish I could be as positive about the meaning of gun sales but I have doubts about how a person wanting to protect themselves turns into a vote in a voting booth months later.

    Especially with the media distorting and hiding information from citizens and all the previous lies and fake news that has been presented against Trump both politically and personally.

    I know if I really hated or despised a candidate, the possibility of what their opponent might do if they won may not change that hate into a vote.

    Keep in mind a lot of folks don’t get how much the Dems will take away guns. They think that their gun will not be taken just other peoples. Sadly this is how people think. They don’t think anything bad will happen to THEM just the other guy.

    Plus they may not understand what some of what is touted by Biden will mean to gun ownership and may not believe it will get anywhere in Congress.

    So it’s NOT a cut and dried thing. Especially on something that directly affects a small number of people. (I know it affects a lot of people. I’m saying most folks don’t see it that way. It’s why we’ve had so many fights and lost about it.)

    ” the best barometer of how the election will go in november is gun sales”
    WRONG
    the best barometer of how the election will go is how many vote by mail ballots go out
    my gut feeling on this is that the reason democrats have been acting like they have *with no fear of repercussion at the polls*
    is because they already have a fail safe plan in place to steal the election
    “insurance policy 2.0” or whatever
    i hope im wrong
    beause this is our last chance to vote ourselves out of all this shit thats been happening lately
    after this…it gets ugly

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Remember that we must show up to vote at the polling booth! Regardless of mail-in voting, your vote is important enough to make sure. If you can get an absentee vote as well, all the better.

    “As President Trump said last week, ‘this election will determine the future of private gun ownership in the United States.'”

    it may be impacted. but for PRIVATE GUN OWNERSHIP to be denied?!? thanks to Biden and the Democrats, or eventually, that being the start of an inexorable process?

    LOOK HERE, the RIGHT to OWN GUNS is an inherent, basic, fundamental, God-Given right that is not given to us by the government! when the government we have created, now run by the politicians that were haphazardly voted into office, tells us we no longer have that

    INHERENT, BASIC, FUNDAMENTAL, GOD-GIVEN RIGHT

    well they can fuck off now can’t they!

    the government which we created so long ago, in a time no less chaotic but infinitely more pious, intellectual and wise, had included the presumption of God-Given Rights, and this denial of that particular God-Given Right would be to reneg on that agreement.

    supporters of the 2nd Amendment will realize that. many others don’t support the 2nd Amendment and will agree with the denial of that right, because they don’t care, even wish for it, and will support the illegitimate action of the government.

    the government must have forgotten that the people have given, and the people can take away. it has happened before, with the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, and numerous lesser revolutions, and should be an obvious fact.

    the problem is that the people are divided on the issue, and too many of them, and the government, will be on the wrong side of the issue. yet it is in the best interests of the supporters of God-Given Rights to not overthrow our government, which is the best government there ever was when it functions right, but to preserve it instead. there is nothing wrong with the form of government, only the idiots that will have taken it over and who ignore its precepts.

    THERE COMES A TIME when those on the side of Freedom, Liberty, Rights of the Individual, Equality, and the Just Rule of Law must set our government back on its right course, DESPITE the wishes of the rest of the population, or even those within the government who pretend to rule us all according to the wishes of that other half of the population and coincidentally their own nefarious purposes.

    how that is supposed to be implemented is anybody’s guess but it won’t be pretty.

    what President Trump said is an indication that that time is coming. soon.

    Or high gun sales could mean Americans believe the future is Seattle and Chicago, with fewer police officers.

    1. avatar Chief Censor says:

      Clearly increasing the police state doesn’t solve or stop crime as advertised. It’s been decades with no improvement from this strategy.

      I would take an educated guess that crime around the world was going down in the last two decades because of access to the internet. Most crime comes from gangs and poverty. Young people have been spending most of their time on the internet rather than outside. Not being outside prevents them from joining gangs and running around town after school to commit crime. The 14 year olds are spending their time playing video games, on social media and other internet based activities. The internet has become the baby sitter and the after school program that used to prevent children from hanging with gangs. However, poverty is not getting better under Trump’s response to covid, thus crime will increase for some time. Hence the increase in gun ownership from those typically opposed to using violence over property crimes.

      The increase in gun ownership will have a greater chance of decreasing crime than adding more police or funds to the police department. The would be victim is better at preventing crime if they are armed than an armed third party responding to a call for help from the victim. Mexico and Brazil show how increasing the police state and decreasing gun ownership does not decrease crime, it actually increases the homicide rate significantly and corruption too.

      Confused Americans believe the police department is meant to protect the citizens. This is very wrong and has been clarified by the government itself as such. The 2nd Amendment is what protects the citizens from all enemies. Self responsibility also means self protection/defense. An adult is responsible for their own life, not a stranger in a government uniform. No one values your life more than you do. Less cops means more personal responsibility and no illusion of a safe space.

      that “future” already seems upon us…and many are voting with their feet…

  31. avatar PMinFl says:

    With so many poorly educated voters, and so many NON gun owners and so many people looking for a free ride this election is very important for our rights. Poorly educated voters will believe whatever is fed to them on the nightly news. Non gun owners don’t see the need for guns in the hands of the populace. People looking for a free ride, medicare for all, free college tuition, and some politicians have proposed a $ 2,000 a week basic payment to all .
    Rights as we know them, God given, not provided by government are unknown to many young folks and to illegals…well forget it. While we deem our rights as all important, the youth of today just want someone else to take care of things.
    New gun owners may help in our just cause in that every vote for Trump is one less for Biden. Sad to say that our two party system is not serving us as it should. The both parties are different sides of the same coin, heads big government wins, tails we the people lose. Voting for a “republican” is not any guarantee of a constitutional conservative. God help us and bless us.

  32. avatar Chief Censor says:

    Doesn’t make sense to say Kamala is super far left. She isn’t really. Also Bernie ran twice, he is clearly further left than Kamala. And the Democrats chose Kalama because Trump said he will get reelected by being the law and order candidate. Kamala was a AG/DA who was very heavy handed in the enforcement of the law and put a lot of black people in prison to use as slave labor, which is no surprise knowing how Kamala’s family owned a plantation and slaves.

    Trump cannot be the law and order candidate with Kamala around. Being she is half black and a woman will help Biden with the female and black voting blocs. Pence is not likable with the average American because of his strong dedication to his religion.

    The media didn’t talk all that much about the 5 year olds death, that includes Fox news, because the killer was arrested within 24 hours and charged. Additionally, there are rumors about the father and mother of the child being in a strange relationship with the black man, they had invited him over many times (including the day of the shooting), they might have been doing drugs together that day and the father was the intended target. It seems the police wanted to give them a lie detector test but the parents refused and blamed racism as the motive.

    Democrats are not single issue voters like Republicans are. They are the ones buying a lot of guns after the pandemic was declared a national emergency by Trump. The civil unrest only increased the sales by this group further. Democrats did not become Republicans and single issue voters simply because they bought a rifle… They will vote Biden because Trump has become the new Hillary Clinton. They will chose anyone over Trump just like people did when they chose Trump over Hillary.

    It will be very hard for federal gun control to pass now that gun ownership is represented on both sides. The supreme court doesn’t want to touch any 2nd Amendment cases. The government doesn’t want to test gun control on the federal level because it doesn’t appear to be in their favor at this time. However, locally the resistance is weak in most places because people believe Trump is pro gun and the NRA is still important. Unfortunately, Trump gave Kamala a great strategy to impose restrictions on the 2nd Amendment through “executive action.”

    If it turns out Trump’s brother died of covid… it would seem almost a guarantee win for Biden and Kamala.

          They are basically a right wing article aggregation site. Sometimes there might be an author who you don’t agree with, but no they do not resemble anything Alex Jones says or his web sites publish.

          Townhall, Bretbart, redstate, hotair, dailywire, lewrockwell, pretty much the same in that they post articles from different authors. many others both left and right.

    Buying a first gun changes you. I had made the mistake of voting for Obama, believing his lies that he would be different from the other Democrats. And then there was the issue of nearly senile McCain and brain dead Palin. I bought my first gun in October 2012. Then came Sandy Hook. And then I got a CHP and a first handgun. Won’t say how many other guns since then, but I will say that in 2016 I voted straight Republican and will again this year. Buying that gun changes your perspective. You understand how much the proggies hate you, how they see you as a criminal when you bought the gun(s) for protection from criminals. You don’t vote Democrat after that.

      Congratulations smart person! You have found your way through the smoke and mirrors and seen the truth. Unfortunately, too few have the mental wherewith-all to do that. It will be a battle this year for control of the nation. One that, if we lose, will result in the end of the republic we hold dear.
