More on gun sale craziness

Lyles likens the recent buying spree to the 1994 surge that preceded a 10-year ban on semiautomatic military-style rifles. Lyles said most of this year's gun buyers are worried that President-elect Barack Obama will re-impose that ban.

"I lived through the Clinton years, but a lot of others in this business didn't," said Lyles. "Two out of every three gun shops in Virginia went under [during the 1990s]. You can only sell so many guns to police departments and federal agencies."

This gunstore owner points out that Obama doesn't have to ban guns to take them away from citizens. Most moonbats that I know say that it won't happen, but they have no idea that an outright ban may not be what does the damage. Shutting down gun stores and gun shows, combined with a steep ammunition tax, will do the job just as well.

Yup, you don't have to outright ban something, you just slowly & incrementally regulate it out of existence.
