An armed citizenry and its enemies
March 24, 2012
Sturm, Ruger & Company, America’s 4th largest gun manufacturer, announced that it has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders. Not too worry, though. This unusual problem stems from the fact that Sturm, Ruger booked over one million firearms orders in the first quarter of 2012. And the company acknowledged that, “the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders.” New orders will be accepted, starting in about 60 days. Smith & Wesson and other domestic gun makers are presented with similar opportunities.
What does this mean in a country where the President and the Attorney General are dedicated to draconian gun control laws, in spite of recent SCOTUS rulings in Heller and McDonald? This Administration relishes the use executive fiat to bypass Congress, and enact new federal regulations to further their own hard left progressive agenda. We can expect a multi- front assault on gun owners, gun registration, ammunition sales, and firearm distributors, much like the Administration’s brutal regulatory attacks on the fossil fuel and power production industry.
