The Nation's Pulse
The Citadel has gotten a tremendous amount of publicity in the last ten days.
Forget the silly attempts to do damage by MBV and his taint-sucklers, their attempts have failed in an epic manner. Every single day the projects add new people to the roster and each of the related III projects gains more customers. Forget the Leftist Media that have piled on, they too have failed. Every single negative story sends more orders and reservations into the projects.
Put it all in perspective for a moment. There is a much bigger story unfolding.
Nearly 2 dozen Americans have asked for guidance, asking how they can get a Citadel community going in their AO. The Citadel has hundreds of reservations on the books. Families and couples and single Americans from coast to coast, border to border, from college aged kids to retired seniors, have considered the idea of moving into a community with like-minded Countrymen and surrounded by protective walls, and they want a residence.
They want safety and they want people near them who see the world as do they.
The response has been humbling.
Now consider what we all witnessed this weekend at 2A rallies across the country. Armed men and women got off their couches and felt the need to show up. And LEO was, from every report submitted here, very polite and respectful. (That tends to happen when outnumbered by serious people who have lost their sense of humor about 2A ;)
Now consider that every gun shop, gun show and firearm and ammo manufacturer in America is essentially sold out of almost everything that is designed for a fight. You can still find many handguns, lever guns, deer rifles. But firearms and ammo designed for defense, good luck finding much. Americans everywhere have gone on a hunt to arm themselves. What scared them into action?
In just days nearly the entire national inventory of fighting arms and ammo to feed them, and accessories such as magazines, were gone.
You know that many, many people who were not engaged a month ago are now fully engaged and temperatures are running hot.
Now consider this final thought: What if every single person who has purchased firearms and/or ammunition in the past 30 days decided to pull their cash out of the bank and go to the store and turn it into food.
The banking system would implode in 3 days. The cascading failures that would follow would implode every single facet of the American economy. In days.
Still think the folks who want to live in the Citadel are wrong?
