Gun Sales Hinge on Obama Re-Election

Posted on: September 15th, 2012

As Cabela’s Inc. CAB +0.45% prepares the selection of guns it will sell for the holiday season and winter hunting, the outdoor-gear retailer has two plans: one if President Barack Obama is re-elected, and one if he isn’t.

The Sidney, Neb.-based retailer and other companies in the guns-and-ammo business say if Mr. Obama wins a second term they are preparing for a surge in sales—the same as they saw after he was elected in 2008—from buyers fearful the president would back policies to make buying a gun more difficult. If Republican challenger Mitt Romney wins, though, the chain plans to stock more items such as waterproof boots and camouflage hunting gear.

“If Mitt Romney is elected and there’s no perceived threat on the freedom to own guns, people might decide to spend disposable income on things like outerwear instead,” said Joe Arterburn, a Cabela’s spokesman.

    Obama is just the puppet. He isn’t even a major player. They (the global elite which includes the Bilderberg Group, the Jesuits, the Zionists, etc.) will continue to come at us. Their prize is the uninterupted assult on Israel. We are the interupters. We will need guns for generations to come, on into infinity.

        Reports of the “elite” are all over the internet however most people consider tthese reports “conspiracy theory”. The Muslim Brotherhood is part of the Bilderberg Group. The reason nobody in the main stream media pays attention to the string pullers is that the string pullers own the companies that are the main stream media. We are talking about 130 families that have controled the money of the world for hundreds of years. THEY are the ones we need to “pay attention” to. But hey, I agree and I’ve posted it on twitter to defund all muslim nations and withdraw all of our people, that way the nuke threat exists.

          What do you do when you get a splinter in your finger? You take it out. Right?

          • DJ_Fisher

            Absolutely…however our faith has been watered down by many “men of God” and been made more “politically correct” than accurate as far as the work and Word of the Lord goes. People now days would think King David was a war monger and not a man of God’s own heart. I myself want to be caught resisting evil whatever that takes.

    Nobama is a loser, an empty suit. Has been from day one. He’s nothing but a willing puppet with someone, probably George Soros pulling his strings. If it isn’t on his teleprompter, he has no idea what to say, & certainly doesn’t know what to do. He’s a faculty room theortician with absolutely NO practical experience in anyting of value! He so badly needs to be impeached & removed from office!

  • marineh2ominer

    I would like to comment but have been sensored .

    • John The Baptist

      Hay marineh2ominer, Why were you sensored? Because you told the truth or your mine?

  • JOHN T. FOX

    I’M BUYING AMMO NOW AND IN THE FUTURE REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME OF THE COMING FIXED ELECTION.
