    U.S. 2012 Firearms Sales Outlook Promising after Record-setting Year

    December marked an unprecedented 19th straight month of background check increases when compared to the same period in the previous year. Another indicator pointing to robust gun sales is the federal excise taxes collected on the sale of new firearms and ammunition, which have risen 48.3 percent over the last five years. As sales climb, recent FBI data shows violent crime continuing to fall in the United States, with homicides dropping out of the top 15 causes of death in the country.

    Free Americans Buy 10,800,000+ Guns in 2011
    Law abiding Americans now easily qualify as the most heavily armed population in the world.
    The final number, of 10,800,000, is considered conservative by experts because the this number does not account for the multiple purchase of guns at the same time or the guns bought and sold legally, person to person by US residents, which rightly so, do not require a back ground check.
    So what does 10,800,000 look like?
    The guns purchased by American men & women in 2011 is more than one gun for every active duty military member in the worlds fourteen largest armies combined.

    Russia Russian Federation 1,027,000
    North Korea 1,106,000
    South Korea 687,000
    Vietnam 455,000
    India 1,325,000
    China 2,285,000
    Iran 523,000
    United States 1,468,364
    Republic of China 290,000
    Brazil 327,710
    Pakistan 617,000
    Egypt 468,500
    Cuba 49,000
    Ukraine 129,925
    Above Total = 10,758,499

    If any real catastrophe of large magnetude were to occur do you really think that a gun is going to “save” you?

    How odd that this article should be here today. About three nights ago, I had a very strange dream. In the dream there were authoritative figures all around. There was a female authoritative figure that was giving me some very vital information. She said that I should be storing foods like granola bars, dried fruits, and the like. She had a very stern look about her. She said things were going to get very bad. The dream was rather scary, due to the air of urgency. There was an urgency to the dream. I woke up with a start.

      Weird I had two dreams with authoritative figures in them too (strange military outfits looked from the 40s) but in one they were going from house to house with guns I was trying to escape from them and kept grabbing food from empty houses and I also grabbed random people on the streets to help them. The other dream a group of authoritative figures came to my house and told me to pack because a huge earthquake was going to happen and I was at the epicenter. Scary.

    This is just the tip of a very large movement, it is very similar to the reactions animals experience in nature when there is a imminent seismic event.
    Some of us can see the trees in the forest clearly, many cannot, even worse is they don’t beleive the train is roaring down the tracks, they continue in denile. We, as a nation cannot fix a problem until we acknowledge it, satan has succesfully deceived everyone.
    At least when they come for us we know they are coming, who sent them, and why.

      couldn’t agree more with you….let’s start the ‘spiritual storing’ now. ‘man does not live on bread alone’ I’m sure God is warning us, for a reason!

    Finally, some Govt statistics that are pleasing to look at.

    Americans are arming themselves, to include the one’s who cause trouble. This could get real nasty if this happens.

    ps I tried to contact Reuters News to show them the error but you have to jump through hoops to contact them. so much for the free exchange of information on the internet. SSS

    I think it’s smart to always have a good 3 months worth of supplies on hand, as there can be many things that can bring on a short, temporary shut down of either local or regional society. These could include natural disasters, terrorist attacks, plagues, or even just a blackout. I’ve been thru a few situations that shut the whole region down from anywhere from 4 days to 3 weeks, and it was chaos. Having a supply of food, water, and other essentials can get you thru a short term disaster. I don’t think this way just for the year 2012, this is a good way to live every year of your life.

  9. SSS says:

    Reuters has mistakenly mis-identified the leader of the Millerite movement of the 1840’s as Joseph Miller. The Baptist preacher was in fact William Miller who preached the end of the world and the return of Christ in 1844. Obviously that did not occur, but out of that group came the movement known as Seventh Day Adventists who still proclaim the nearness of the LORD’s coming yet setting no specific date.

    The farmers actually came thru the great depression of the last century fairly well. It was a couple of decades later that the banks started killing the small ones off. I’ve been moving that way myself -towards more self subsistence. mainly for monetary reasons though. Its got little to do with living or any apocalypse. I look forward to death. Not in any hurry to get there though.
    Have a great day.

    “We can stock up on food and water. We can organize emergency plans for our families, but we never really know what is going to happen. We can do all that is good and necessary to take care of our families, but in the end, if we are not right with the Lord, it is all for nothing.”

  12. Colleen says:

    Amen Tim, I totally concur with you. God bless.

    A Perfect Storm Drives Record Gun Sales
    http://247wallst.com/2012/06/28/a-perfect-storm-drives-record-gun-sales/?utm_source=247WallStDailyNewsletter

    It is no secret that gun sales are through the roof. Still, up over 27% year over year? That is what Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: SWHC) disclosed today. What we are tracking today is not the results of one company. This says a lot about society as fear and concern prevail for many Americans.
