Paranoid Gun Freaks Prep for Re-election

The same thing happened four years ago. Mouth-breathing yokels are buying guns in preparation for the re-election of the president. You know, because they're patriotic Americans.

Gun sales are booming across Texas, and some buyers say their growing belief that President Barack Obama's re-election is inevitable is fueling their race to bear more arms.

So brisk have sales been that the rush has created a nationwide shortage of firearms and ammunition, the Star-Telegram reports. Fort Worth gun shop owner DeWayne Irwin said the rush is similar to one seen shortly after the president's 2008 election.
