Between military consumption & this potential ban on imports it’ll be near impossible to obtain .308 win.

Quickie quiz: which amendment comes after the First Amendment?

For an administration that does not shrink from Censoring political speech protected by the First Amendment, it cannot be much of a step to interfere with Second Amendment rights.

You can’t find .30 right now for that matter.

I have 300 round of .308, mostly federal. I sold my .308 AR10 a few months back.

I wish I could say that this is a surprise... but alas- our Republic is on its way out to the dustpan of history.

A significant fraction of the .308/7.62x51 and .223/5.56x45 ammo I see available is imported. Virtually all of the 7.62x39 and7.62x54R is imported.

About half the 9x19 and .45 ACP that I see available is imported.

Note to all:

Brass is reusable.

Further note: your gun is useless without cartridges. An attack on ammunition imports is directly and intentionally an attack on your right to keep and bear arms.

The Obamaramous should remember that the American Revolution started over the government trying to seize weapons.

But I guess that is what his “Civilian Defense Force” is all about.

30 carbine or the bigger stuff (e.g., 30-06)....I just bought some -06, had a flyer that was selling surplus bandoliers of 30 carbine with strippers and cardboards).

‘30 carbine or the bigger stuff (e.g., 30-06)....I just bought some -06, had a flyer that was selling surplus bandoliers of 30 carbine with strippers and cardboards).’

I picked up a AR-15 just yesterday, and the gun shop just finished selling off 18,000 rounds of 30-06 in ‘strips’.

I’ve seen the ad in cheaperthandirtdotcom for the .30 with strippers a ‘silencer’ cardboard...Cabela’s is now offering .30 in 300 round ‘ammo boxes’ according to the email I got from them yesterday as well. $178 per box of 300 rounds.

So...everyone should be howling to their elected officials, from the House to the Senate, all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Let them know that this will NOT be acceptable to law abiding US Citizens, and that it should be dropped, immediately.

If they are just floating a trial balloon, we’ll shoot it down. IF they are wishing to proceed, they’ll likely have to rethink it.

It’s time to take back the country.
