What a Country!

What a country we are. What I'm about to tell you won't surprise those in class who have been paying attention. In the wake of the horrific shootings in Arizona on Saturday, guess what's one of the hottest selling products around in Arizona and other states? That's right: the Glock semi-automatic pistol that a lunatic used to kill six people and wound 14 more last Saturday.

According to one Arizona gun dealer: "When something like this happens people get worried that the government is going to ban stuff."

Chew on this:
One-day sales of handguns in Arizona jumped 60 percent to 263 on Jan. 10 compared with 164 the corresponding Monday a year ago, the second-biggest increase of any state in the country, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data.
Handgun sales rose 65 percent to 395 in Ohio; 16 percent to 672 in California; 38 percent to 348 in Illinois; and 33 percent to 206 in New York, the FBI data show. Sales increased nationally about 5 percent, to 7,906 guns
I'm telling you, people, this nation is certifiably nuts.
