    ^ Yep. Trump is unlikely to want new gun laws implemented, he's pro-gun rights. So it's not that surprising that gun sales would be down.

    CH - you would not believe the stuff that goes on in SA. One informal taxi driver was caught using a vice grip instead of a steering wheel. Another was caught with a female passenger holding the petrol tank on her lap in the front seat next to the driver. She got a discount on her fare for this inconvenience. Most of these taxis are overloaded, not roadworthy and many drivers are not licensed. They do not obey the rules of the road, cut across other motorists and play racing games with each other to see who can make it back to the pick up point first. 235 people killed over an Easter weekend is actually a 'good' statistic. Many times the tally is a lot higher than that. Buses plunging down mountainsides because of driver fatigue is another norm. And the authorities do practically nothing to change it. They just pretend it's not really happening. Insane.

    Most politicians display some form of psychopathic tendencies. The common trait amongst them is that they fail to have any empathy with other people. They only see their side of the equation. True leaders, which are in extremely short supply these days, put themselves in the other person's shoes before deciding the next move.

    My guess is Trump won't make it a second term.

    The politicians don't care about us because they are rich.
    Like actors, they live in a world all their own.
    I have yet to make up my mind about Trump.
    Still so very happy Hillary did not make the cut!

    Hard to find a person who does not already have a gun in N.C.
    In western N.C. guns are hard to find to purchase because almost everyone has several.
    There is a shortage of guns there.
