Quote of the Day
It would appear that New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s emergency order banning the carrying of firearms in Albuquerque has had an unintended consequence: Sales in the city’s gun stores are booming.

‘Busiest day I’ve had in months’: Guns flying off shelves in Albuquerque after gov’s anti-2A move
People buy banned books because they are, or are about to be, banned. The same applies to guns.
In this case the buying more guns in the face of a ban to carry them in public doesn’t make quite as much sense. But maybe they were buying them so they could carry them in public in defiance of their criminal governor.
You would think that a politician capable of getting elected governor would have a better sense of human nature. For someone that opposed to gun ownership one would think she would not engage in behavior that would, obviously, increase gun ownership and public carry. But, yet, she did.
People are strange. Rationality is just a thin veneer over a whirl of emotions. And many people don’t even have that veneer.
