This will solve everything.
“It’s been insane,” Rocky Mountain Guns and Ammo employee Jake Meyers told the Denver Post in reference to the marked increase in gun sales across Colorado observed in the wake of Friday’s deadly shooting in Aurora.
According to the Post, Friday to Sunday saw a 43 percent jump in background checks approved by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation over the previous weekend.
On Friday alone there were 1,216 checks — 43 percent higher than the average number of checks requested during the previous two Fridays.
More guns! Go!
I have absolutely no doubt the rush came from people convinced that the shooting would lead to the government banning guns. They buy it every single time. They’ve been buying it for decades. Suckers.
Newsflash: no one wants to completely ban guns. We just don’t think you need assault rifles or 100-round drum magazines.
