    Look at how fast it went south! Now think about us turning it around just as quickly. I believe it can be done.

    We've been "reasonabled" right into the gulag.

    Fight every law and intrusion as if it was a complete destruction of the right.

    Wow! Get a load of the description of the "real bargains in rifles". Was there a brand called "Japs" or was everyone's skin thicker back then and weren't so politically correct to use such a ... umm... derogatory name for rifles of Japanese descent?

    Also, could you see us all rushing down to buy surplus war weapons today? Gee, I wonder how many AK, AR, .50BMG and other rifles are surplused from the war on terror? Quick, come on down and pick through our wide selection of retired service weapons from the SEAL Teams and Marine Recon. Get 'em while they last!

    Damn! Is that my alarm clock beeping at me? I must have been dreaming!

    My cousin in Iraq says they have destroyed thousand upon thousands of weapons captured in Iraq.....those days of true army surplus is gone. Sad.
