Default The gun market surrounding this election

I saw a headline that there were more federal background checks in October than any month in history.

All of this in preparation for a possible Hillary Clinton win.

When Obama won it kicked off a HUGE run on guns. So some lessons were learned there. So the run-up on the gun market has started much earlier.

If Hillary wins the market will continue to explode.

If Trump wins the bubble will burst and there will be a lot of guys who bet wrong on the market.

expect some fire sales and good deals on Black Friday. It will be a buyer's market.

Whites are much more likely to commit suicide with a gun than blacks.

Blacks are much more likely to commit homicide with a gun than whites.

It's kind of a curious thing, esp. the lack of suicide among blacks. Something well known to people who study suicide. Despite the poverty, racism, etc.

There have been a lot of things that liberals have flip-flopped on recently. For example, suddenly they are very open to the idea that the election could have been hacked. Or the results are invalid. Or that secession may be a good idea. Or that there may be a need to rise up against a totalitarian govt. Or that citizens should be allowed to be armed as a guard against a dictator. This was all crazy right-wing talk just yesterday.

What this all reveals is that arguments are fungible and not process oriented. Very few people care about process.
