<<Gun and ammunition sales across the country have risen sharply since
Sept. 11 as more Americans take what many consider to be the most
personal step toward feeling safer: arming themselves.>>
NY Times 12/15/01

<<At the Firing Line, a South Philadelphia gun shop and pistol range
where there has been a 20 percent increase in the sale of guns since
Sept. 11, the owner, Gregory J. Isabella, said the economy may be
sour, but that has not stopped sales. He said he sold 58 guns in the
first 20 days after the attacks, an increase of 20 percent or more
over the same period last year, and sold 18,000 rounds of
ammunition in the same period, an increase of more than 30 percent.>>

.......18,000 rounds sold in one gun shop in just 20 days!!.....I love it!!.......sounds like folks in South Philly know the meaning of the term "personal protection".......I don't spend much time worrying about threats to the 2nd Ammendment, or Sara Brady, or the Million Moms because I know that Americans simply aren't giving up their guns....period. The only way the American public will ever be disarmed is at gun point; and they will resist at gun point....

pass the 5.56...
