    Gun stocks are surging after Omar Mateen shooting

    President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, both called for stricter gun-control measures in statements on Sunday.

    And amid prior calls from the White House to toughen laws, gunmakers have reported increased demand for their products; the concern among consumers is that guns may be harder to buy in the future if stricter legislation is passed.

    It's very telling that the only folks who come out on top of these shooting tragedies are the NRA and their bosses in the gun industries (and the politicians in their pay).

    Really, I am not surprised about the shoot. The gay/lesbian/trans community has been an in-your-face community in respect to issues that many have religious objections about.

    I think religion has killed more people than any guns.

    If the abortion community was in all the malls trying to convince folks to have abortions and were in our faces, I would bet that the same thing would happen.

    As far as the sale of the gun model, not surprising either .. a proven winner...as well as gun stocks in general.

    I hope all the gays sue the place for being GFZ and not protecting them.

    With those kinds of results, maybe the Saul Alinsky progressives who normally benefit from violence and the breakdown of social order will stop orchestrating such attacks. I mean, if your tin foil hat is tight as to imply some grand conspiracy theory, let's at least get the actors straight, shall we?

    No conspiracy theory. Mass shootings are good for business for the gun industry. True or false?

    FALSE

    It is the response of the establishment to mass shootings that is good for the gun industry, and the electorate's awareness of that response.

    TRUMP you prog!

    The "establishment" (whatever that is) is not running out and buying guns and ammo because they are afraid of sensible gun laws. It's the small, but fearful and gullible demographic that reacts this way every time the NRA claims that gun confiscation is just around the corner. That would be the regressives. The vast majority of the US isn't going to take the "more guns" philosophy sold by the NRA as a solution to the gun crime problem much longer. That's what the NRA types are afraid of, the loss of sales, not the crime itself.

    Liberals, as beebobby again illustrates, see a opportunity to advocate for further erosion of our individual liberty.

    YES! TRUMP is the anti-establishment and UN-politically correct President to castrate the progressive movement in the USA.

    TRUMP is the Country Class candidate against the Ruling Parties democrat and repugnican.

    Though Donald is depicted as smug and arrogant by careful selection from the anti-media, we should ask ourselves if we really want to see Shillary's image on TV nightly, filling billboards along the interstates, AND painted as huge murals on the side of high visibility buildings across our country.

    See a typical picture of her linked below - she would be the government here to help you.

    Mass shootings and other terrifying events are good for increasing government power and mounting attacks on our rights. True or false?

    Mass shootings are also good for highlighting which party is working toward reducing them and which party wants that NRA paycheck.

    There is not a spit of Pearl Jam difference between the Ruling Parties, they are all progressives suffering from the political diarrhea, legislating to make-things-better while we suffer the consequences. Democrat and GOP are bad-cop worse cop played on the political stage.

    TRUMP the PC establishment. The GOP is over.

    Typical, gutless, progressive dodge.

    And how do you propose to reduce mass shootings?

    By creating even more unarmed, defenseless victims and defenseless victim zones?

    A person intent on mass murder, who spends months or longer planning his deeds, who is willing--perhaps even anxious--to die in the effort is going to be deterred by what gun laws exactly?

    A riotous mob intent on burning and looting and beating innocent people to death are deterred by what laws, exactly? But a few Korean shopkeepers can protect themselves and their livelihoods with a couple of the guns you progs so hate.

    Another mass murder, committed in a statutory gun-free zone. And your answer is to create more gun-free zones and more gun-free victims?

    What is it your queen likes to say about the definition of insanity?
