As liberals and gun haters dance in the blood of children in their call for new gun laws, survivalist need to wake up. SHTF comes in a wide range of disasters. Sometimes its hurricanes, earthquakes or other natural disasters, sometimes its losing a job or financial collapse,,,.
In the case of December 2012, it was a crazy kid with a gun that gave liberals and gun haters the needed fuel to call for more gun laws.
Over the course of a few days gun stores were stripped of every AR-15 they had, and all of the ammunition they had in stock.
The following days people became desperate to get their hands on an AR-15, magazines and ammunition.

This post is for the sake of prosperity, and for historical purposes. I feel that it is important to document what happened politically and in the shooting sports industry shortly after the Sandy Hook school shooting.
December 14, 2012 – Adam Peter Lanza fatally shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, and Stole 2 pistols and a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle. Adam Peter Lanza then drove to Newtown, Connecticut where he processed to enter the Sandy Hook Elementary School. After entering the school, Adam killed 26 people. The victims included twenty children and six adult staff members.
As emergency responders entered the building Adam killed himself.
The nation is shocked that anyone could inflict so much violence on children.
December 15 and 16, 2012 – News starts coming out that Adam suffered from Asperger’s syndrome, which is a form of autism.
Dianne Feinstein and Joe Lieberman vowed to introduce legislation to ban “assault weapons and high-capacity magazines”.
Cerberus Capital Management says they are going to sell Freedom Group, which is the owner of Bushmaster, as well as several other firearms companies. The news focuses on Cerberus Capital Management, Freedom Group and Bushmaster. There is no mention that Freedom Group also owns Remington, Marlin and several other brandnames.
In his speech at the December 16 vigil, Obama called for a renewed push for a better America, using “whatever power this office holds”.
