Dave Hardy notes record gun sales, which we certainly have been hearing a lot about, but it also looks like it’s happening in Australia too:
Equally interesting, it may be a global phenomenon. In Australia, New South Wales to be specific, gun control advocates are upset becauseÂ gun permits are up about 25%, and uo about 80% over five years ago. It’s also interesting that they have formed a “Shooters Party” in Parliament.
They’ve formed a shooter’s party, largely because they have to. The increased level of sales is making the gun control crowd (Rebecca Peters) in Australia stand up and loudly proclaim that something must be done. They are proposing that people be limited as to how many guns they may acquire.
In some ways I find the foreign gun control organizations refreshingly honest. They don’t like guns, and want to restrict them as much as they can. They make that abundantly clear. You don’t see these people playing up victimhood, and trying to convince everyone they are just out to honor victims, in an attempt to appear sympathetic. The foreign organizations know what they are out to do, and many have the power to do it. When you look at the contrast, you kind of wonder how much our gun control crowd is just mulling about feeling sorry for themselves these days. Not that I can blame them.
