It’s Happening All Over

Over the holidays, there were reports of a gun/prepper show in Las Vegas where they simply sold out of everything that went “bang”, and this morning, there is a report from California to the same effect. I find this not only indicative of the general mindset, but encouraging. If our fellow citizens are prepared to both defend themselves and feed themselves, then we have a much better chance of maintaining civility in adversity. Obviously, the powers that be intend to quash our ability to keep and bare arms, but it looks like the people -in whom all power honestly resides- have a different take on things.

Ontario Gun Show Draws Thousands Looking to Stock Up, Send a Message

With supply low and demand high, gun owners flocked to the Ontario Convention Center this weekend to stock up on ammunition at the state’s first gun show since a mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school reignited the dormant gun control debate and increased sensitivity across the nation to firearms.

Some 6,000 people had filled the center by Saturday afternoon, and more than double that figure is expected to attend the event, which is open to the public and ends Sunday. The massive turnout is something even the Crossroads of the West Gun Show promoter didn’t expect.

Hundreds of gun enthusiasts wrapped around the convention center to enter the gun show and inside the packed convention center, 720 tables display firearms, not including assault weapons similar to those used in the Newtown, Conn., massacre.

The ammunition tables became so congested on Saturday that promoters had to reroute the crowd. (read the rest here)
