  1. It appears as though America is preparing for a fight. When everyone has a weapon, will there still be a need to keep performing these? This government (both pols & bureaucrats) had better see just what it is that it has sparked in the American people and begin to perform their duties as prescribed by the Constitution. And nothing more. Of course they will do neither.

    1. Yup and as the article mentioned ,the checks are just for individuals who may buy more than one at a time, like the two I purchased for the PATCON raffle.
