    Firearms purchases booming in Wisconsin. Orders ... send dealers scrambling

    http://www.jsonline.com/business/fir...150321895.html
    It is amusing when the Brady Dunce-in-the-box, just one of the nations most prominent gun control organizations, is selected to remind us that correlation is not cause. It's like pulling the string on a cheap Chatty Cathy doll, "Math is hard. I don't like logic." God bless the Bitter Clingers.

    Sounds like Wisconsin is due for a crime increase of a similar amount because that's what the Brady Campaign says. Oh wait, crime isn't increasing at a rate like that. Oops I guess the Brady Campaign lied to me. I wonder what else they are lying about?

    Signs Of The Times.....Ruger Suspends Taking Orders....They Received 1 Million So Far

    You have to love it when a major U.S. firearms manufacturer says..."Hold on!...We Received A Million Orders And Can't Take Anymore Just Yet!".

    One of many links: http://offgridsurvival.com/rugerstop...tinggunorders/


    Official Ruger Statement:

    SOUTHPORT, CT –Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR), announced today that for the first quarter 2012, the Company has received orders for more than one million units. Therefore, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

    Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Fifer made the following comments:

    The Company’s Retailer Programs that were offered from January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 were very successful and generated significant orders from retailers to independent wholesale distributors for Ruger firearms.
    Year-to-date, the independent wholesale distributors placed orders with the Company for more than one million Ruger firearms.
    Despite the Company’s continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.
    The Company expects to resume the normal acceptance of orders by the end of May 2012.
    “The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the People of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” -- Samuel Adams

    “Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”

    —John F. Kennedy

    But, but, but, the Brady Bunch said firearm ownership was at its lowest level ever. Who am I to believe?! /sarcasm

    For what little it is worth WI isn't the only state enjoying record fire arms sales. I work part time in a small mom & pop pawn shop in a rural area and our handgun sales have boomed and from the other dealers that I have talked with have seen the same thing. The dealers in the state of AR are seeing the same thing. Despite what the Brady Bunch whines the crime rate has gone down also except petty theft and some are getting their ass shot off for that even.

    "The Brady Campaign also says "the percentage of American households with a gun has been steadily declining over time" and that gun sales are concentrated among people who already own guns."

    Apparently they missed the DOJ release earlier this year saying that while gun ownership continues to RISE crime has been going DOWN .

    FBI also says firearm ownership continues to rise.

    Too bad Brady Bunch doesn't actually check the yearly statistics for homicide, suicide and accidental shootings. They might be embarrassed by the facts. They just publish their baloney and expect that nobody will verify it.

    Thats why our government should require truth in advertising for any charitable organization. Blatantly falsifying data to gain donations is criminal in my opinion.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?
