Free handguns from

“A week after the election of the nation’s first black president, gun buyers across the country are flocking to gun stores to stock up on assault rifles, handguns and ammunition. Some say they are worried that the incoming administration of President-elect Barack Obama will attempt to re-impose the ban on assault weapons that expired in 2004. Others fear the loss of their right to own handguns. A few say they are preparing to protect themselves in the event of a race war. — L.A. Times

I support the right to own a deer rifle or a shotgun or a handgun, for that matter. No point in talking about race war or assault weapons. That’s moron country.

But here’s a wager I offered today and I’ll extend it to readers who really believe the new administration is going to take away your right to own a handgun.

You buy a new pistola for, say, $500. If the right to buy or own a handgun is limited in any way by the end of Obama’s first term, I’ll pay you $500. If not, you pay me $500. We’ll give the money to an agreed-upon third party to hold.

What do you say? Here’s your chance to get a free Beretta (or whatever). Hit the comment link and we’ll set it up.

  1. I think that you may be misreading a lot of this retail “gun-gorging” as fear of any kind of coming governmental interference in our perceived constitutional rights.
    PE Obama and his named AG Eric Holder have a track record of anti-gun legislation, but that’s not a problem for most of us who still consider the Constitution a legal guide for our counry.
    What’s of real concern, and this is the case for a lot of folks, is the potential for societal discord. If the economy continues on its downward slide, we might have a problem.
    The cost of food and domicile has risen considerably over the past year. Those who can’t afford housing or food will eventually seek it out and will try to get it one way or another.
    It might be prudent to be able to guard and protect one’s family as you can in the face of such a threat.
    Sadly, firearms might be the only way to handle such duties.
    I’d love to take you up on your $500 bet, but I think your money’s misplaced.

  2. You are a man who puts his money where his mouth is! Refreshing and impressive! (I only buys guns from the black market, which no restrictions will ever affect. No bet.)

  3. I thought this was interesting as well. I need some new guns, but I don’t want your bet. I just want to protect myself from all the neocons with new guns.
