The British are envious again

So, once again the Brits are envious. This piece running in the Telegraph today tells a story of their own worries and envy in my opinion.  Back here at home, it's pretty simple math if you ask me. The American people are watching the aftermath of Fast & Furious and they can plainly see what this president's agenda was and is.

Americans buy record numbers of guns for Christmas 

According to the FBI, over 1.5 million background checks on customers were requested by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in December. Nearly 500,000 of those were in the six days before Christmas. It was the highest number ever in a single month, surpassing the previous record set in November. On Dec 23 alone there were 102,222 background checks, making it the second busiest single day for buying guns in history. The actual number of guns bought may have been even higher if individual customers took home more than one each. Explanations for America's surge in gun buying include that it is a response to the stalled economy with people fearing crime waves. Another theory is that buyers are rushing to gun shops because they believe tighter firearms laws will be introduced in the future.
