Tales from the Land of Cognitive Dissonance

If you ever wondered why newspapers and the journalism profession in general is in such dire straits, letting guys like Bryan Miller of Ceasefire New Jersey write columns for you should be a good indication.

The press has been full of reports in recent days of gun shop owners across the country claiming sales have climbed dramatically since last Tuesday's election. Said owners attribute this supposed spike to Barack Obama's election as, per the quoted remarks of a Seattle gun shop owner: "He wants to take our guns from us and create a socialist society policed by his own police force."
Overlooking the craziness of this gun retailer's sentiment, I am highly skeptical of the sales claims. Note that gun dealers are the ones making them. I've seen this happen numerous times over the years.

Here’s a tip for you Bryan, get your fat lazy ass to a gun store and see the crowds for yourself.
