    My 68 year old liberal mother (who thinks I am one of those crazy preppers) just bought herself a pink SIG 9 mil. She has confided in me that she wants to get her concealed carry and wants my hubby to teach her to shoot and break it down before she takes a class so she doesn't look like a complete idiot. I'm not to tell my VERY LIBERAL sisters who may never let their kids visit again. I literally fell off my chair from shock when she told me, dropped my phone and everything. Called my hubby, he said get ready. Something big is coming!

    Maybe he finally rubbed off on her after 49 years. He has more my mindset on things and is an avid gun collector of antique double barrels. I hope he hasn't pissed her off royally. I think its just a safety thing with the way the world is now. She is afraid someone will hurt her or her dog Annie when they hike or are travelling.

    With all the "Home Invasions" happening to Older Folks, every day on the local News Stations, It is NOT unheard of that Older Folks who have been getting by, by "Hiding in Plain Site" are waking up to the REAL State of the Neighborhood.... Good for Her, and tell Hubby to be gentile with GrandMa... and start out with some 9mm Practice Loads, and work up to the "Man Stoppers" that she will need, once Operational....

    They are arn't worried about conservatives. they are fully aware, of the mind set of their own kind.
    Liberals are stirring trouble every where , they know there is real trouble ahead .
    Other forums indicate liberals are arming as well including the gun shops I visit. .

    Be sure to tell her. "Welcome to the Republican Party." Taking responsibility for your own defense is the first step toward independence and freedom. A true sign of the onset of conservatism!

    And, [winkthumb][winkthumb] for Mom!!

    Liberals are indeed gearing up. Was at the local gun barn looking at a crate of Russian SKSs I was thinking about buying laugh all you want a SKS is a good cheap dependable rifle :) and the 10 left in the crate were in new condition and well greased for long term storage. Anyway as I was doing the FFL paperwork, in walks a flaming liberal from 60 miles to the South that I have engaged in several heated debates with over the years. This is a guy that breaks down in tears if you even say the word "GUN" SO I sat in my little cubicle observing, he was picking up Sig 1911 and a AR, So I walked up behind him with my finished paperwork and looked over his shoulder and said "Nice set of weapons." The clown looked like a deer in the headlights standing there stuttering and sputtering. "Of course they ain't going to do you much good when you have zero awareness of what is around you." I offered. He finished up his pick up paper work and scrambled for the door with his new weapons, turning to say " I Trust this will not be mentioned to anyone!" I said buddy when someone like you that, gives lectures at the local colleges about the need to remove all guns from society, walk into my favorite gun store and picks up not one but two guns and extra hi capacity mags....... You can bet your flaming little ass I am going to tell this story to everyone I know!" After he left all red faced, Sam the owner tells me there has been a real rush of Moonbats buying guns since the election. And the CC class he teaches is back logged with them taking the class to get their CC. What he says scares him is not so much them having guns, their mind set and some of the questions they ask him. Most he says express that their reason for buying guns and getting the CC is to protect themselves from all of the violent Trump supporters and the police. He said one asked him "If a Trump supporter hillbilly type is approaching me and I believe he is armed and could be a danger to me..... can I shoot him?" Sam says in many ways he feels like he is selling guns to 5 year olds that have not fully developed the ability to reason. I guess a good number of them are getting turned down on the background checks as well due to felony convictions and answering honestly that they are on prescribed mental medications. It was a interesting conversation. It amuses Sam they they are traveling 50-80 miles from the two liberal strong holds to the small town gun shops to make their purchases, when there ample numbers of gun shops right there with a half a mile of where they live. Interesting conversation, even more interesting seeing one of the most anti gun people I have ever met arming up.

    We don't see liberals arming up around here. There aren't any in this county, for which I'm entirely glad. I got really tired of explaining to sheep why I was carrying before I moved here.

    Just two strongholds of them down here in Southern IL. due to the Universities. And the last few years tons of Chicago Liberals migrating down here. Which I wouldn't mind except all they do is piss and moan about how backwards everyone down her is and start trying to change here to there.

    Both Alarming and Amusing, and I have no reason to doubt Sam I have known him for over 40 years...... That they are wanting weapons to defend themselves from Violent Trump supporters and LEO. To the best of my knowledge Trump supported violence has been limited to defending themselves. Pulling a gun on a LEO never ends well. If I were the puppet master and wanted to ban guns, I would encourage my puppets to get guns and CCs and then do stupid stuff with those guns and then cite how the Citizens just can be trusted with deadly weapons. At that point there would be no distinction between Conservative or Liberal, the NRA would be hamstrung and the sheep would be singing my praise for protecting them from the violent wolves. You know kind of like paying protesters to get violent and calling the peaceful folks the violent folks.

    In Seattle, they have a $.05 per bullet tax........ so we see people from the city come out to the neighboring towns to buy ammo. I will have to ask the guy at my favorite small town shop, if he has seen an uptick of lib's buying firearms.

    I see it as amusing but not alarming. Whatever reason people are arming is good for us all! Most of those people are going to defend "their" rights when they didn't give a poo about "our" rights! That's a tiny step to the right.

    The difference being we support the right for ALL people to keep and bear arms - they only support the right of LIKE MINDED people (and authorities, of course!).

    EXACTLY @3M-TA3.
    I see no difference between that and hollywood having armed bodyguards. Same mentality, just that the "poor" libtards can't afford a sec team..
