Recently, someone asked me whether the prospect of a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives would affect my future firearms purchases. The answer is an emphatic “yes.” Although it won’t affect the number of unnecessary gun purchases I make – that number will remain ridiculously high – it will affect the types of guns I buy.
Before the recent poll numbers indicating a possible change in leadership - in both the House and Senate - I was focusing strictly on gun purchases designed to improve my versatility as a hunter. Since people often call from around the country to invite me hunting I always have to be prepared to take anything from the smallest squirrel to the largest grizzly bear. Now, I’m thinking a lot more about tactical and self-defense models.
To be sure, Pelosi would love to see something like the Clinton “assault rifle ban” of 1994 put into place early in her tenure as Speaker Pelosi. (It really hurts to write those last two words!). But in order for that to happen, two things will need to take place. She’ll need a Democratic Senate majority and a Democratic President. Needless to say, both of those things cannot happen for over two more years.
So I’m preparing now for a worst-case scenario by setting aside about five thousand dollars to be spent on weapons and accessories that may well be targeted by future Democratic leaders. There’s a strong possibility that all of those funds will be spent on products made by the fine folks at Springfield Armory.
First and foremost, I plan to stock up on 13-round magazines for my main home and car defense weapon – the .45 ACP XD by Springfield. These magazines will be almost as rare as a feminist orgasm if the Democrats take over. After that issue is resolved, the fun will really begin with my next rifle purchase. It will be an easy choice, given what I’ve heard about the Loaded Standard M1A Rifle.
This gun fires the highly accurate and powerful .308 Winchester round. It comes equipped with a ten-round detachable magazine but don’t even think about buying this gun without getting a few 20-round pre-ban magazines, too. This is really the ultimate survival gun for those who refuse to relinquish responsibility for their safety to the local, state, and federal government.
