This is very scary. What are these people going to do with these weapons? If they want to shoot guns at people, why don't they join the Army. Oh, wait, that would require some courage and discipline. Sorry I asked.
The phones at gun shops across the country are ringing off the hook. Demand for firearms, ammunition and bulletproof gear has surged since the Dec. 14 massacre in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 20 schoolchildren and six teachers and administrators. The shooting sparked calls for tighter gun control measures, especially for military-style assault weapons like the ones used in Newtown and in the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting earlier this year. The prospect of a possible weapons ban has sent gun enthusiasts into a panic and sparked a frenzy of buying at stores and gun dealers nationwide.(By the way, bulletproof vests won't protect you against the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.)
