No.

I'm sorry, but I will not support scalpers and price gougers.

Your kids can't even sell lemonade in your front yard without Governemnt permission.

So much for freedom.

The whole aparatus for 'hard' tyranny is in place now. Its amazing to me how many people don't see it.

Check out the 9/11 book "Extreme Predjudice", it very interesting.
I can't agree more. Have you seen Florida in the news yet. You can get fined for sagging your pants. Now I don't sag myself, but now they are telling you how to dress. And not to mension New York's Large soda ban. Now tell me if that is NOT tranny.

Personally I think the proper punishment for sagging your pants is for someone to reach out and slap the sh!t out of the offender. Don't need no laws for that.

If we stop selling them for good, I will quit.
...taking down black rifles out of respect makes about as much sence as refusing to sell Bicycles because Lance Armstrong shamed the Tour De France...

Hope Accademy figures this out before they become the next Smith & Wesson.

Just back from mall. Went to dicks to see. They pulled all 223 ammo, they pulled anything w pistol grip, pulled everything but conventional stuff. No clerk at the counter, instead, two officers sporting glock 22 were one aisle over. Seriously.
