I think we are entering a whole new era of gun sales trends. owning a pistol and having your CPL is something people talk about in the lunchroom now. People, especially women, who I never thought would own a gun are asking me for advice about what to buy. The inability of the government to protect us from criminals, illegals, and mentally deranged individuals is now becoming apparent to many people, and they do not want to be helpless in their own home.
Thank you for articulating my exact feelings on many fronts. Liberals want loonies on every street corner in NYC and SF, and will never question their noble status. So you get to live with them. But they will never take ownership of their policies that created the situation.
