The Sales of Guns and Fortress Mentality.

Some people lose a lot with the conomic crisis, but others are big winners: there has been a boom (8 to 10%) in the business of gun sales lately. Why? Fear of the economy.
Apparently, some Americans are afraid of "more crimes and civil disorder should the American economy turn for the worse as more people lose their jobs and homes, while prices continue to soar and credit card bills pile up". So what's their response: buy a gun.
It also seeems that others may be afraid of "tougher gun control measures if Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is elected." (ANH)

I guess we should expect more shootings like this in the near future.
I guess some people would do anything.... There promises to be fun times ahead... ! Gulp!
