Why Gun Sales are Skyrocketing - One Theory

Article after article has been written on the skyrocketing sales of guns and ammunition.  There are lots of theories as to why, but nobody seems to have pinned it down.

I can't explain the whole trend, by I can explain my part in it.

With the rise of the Occupy movement, there has been much talk, mostly veiled but some very overt, that the rich need to pay their fair share, and if they would not, they'd be forced to via violent means. 

In chat rooms, websites, and social media everywhere the rhetoric is getting more and more threatening.  There are forces at work that absolutely desire that this cold war turns hot.  They crave the day of comeuppance that they feel will set the world right.

I take them at their word.   

I'm not rich, but I guess I'm technically a "have," and as such feel like I am a target.  I'm spending some of my hard earned income on the ability to protect myself and my family.  I won't go into details as to what and how much I've purchased, but suffice it to say I'm well armed and continue to augment what I have.

I may be a target, but sure as hell refuse to be a victim.
