“With over 300 million firearms in America in the hands of private citizens, the people are sending a loud and clear message to their government”
They are not listening which is the most dangerous part of it all.
True enough. They’d have a brief sense of impact, though.
You could be 100% totally in the right simply defending yourself buy the time the news media is done smearing you you will be no better then some no good street criminal and the police will exercise extreme prejudice on you same as Dorner, the Branch Dividians and Ruby Ridge. I have never seen so many trigger happy cops as the video of the Dorner shootout. What the hell were they shooting at? did they have a clear view of the target or were they just getting some full auto trigger time??
The ammo bubble will eventually pop and that my friend is when I am going to buy some.
We are a chummy bunch, no doubt...
Not like those “up north”.
Natch, my sister went & married one of THEM, and lives there to this day. At least he’s a 2A conservative & they’re in the Hillsdale area...
Response: Agreed if you mean Social War.(Some call it Civil War.)
Comment: The only problem being the left is more highly prepared, better leaders, has access to better equipment, has access to better propaganda promulgation; better organized, and an overall higher intelligence. As of the next five years the left would wipe the conservatives off the face of the earth. For conservatives to prevail much work has to be done.
My two (rep and senator) stated they'd both be voting against the original bill as presented, however, it appears my rep has voted for this latest version. It goes to the senate next, and I will be reminding my senator about his statement to me.
As for my rep, I will be reminding him of his prior position shortly.
That is the real problem; I have enough ammo for any real need, but I'm not going to burn it up at the range anymore.
A few hundred IRA members with armalites tied down the English army for decades.
And most ranges won’t let you pick up your brass either.
One of the reasons I chose a Beretta 92 9mm was that I thought if ammo ever became in short supply, 9mm would be one of the last calibers to become short in supply and somewhat affordable.
15 years later, this has come to fruition and while the cost of 9mm ammunition has at least doubled, it can still be found. Most of the high prices are dealers and sellers gouging gun owners. Shame on them.
I use the cheap stuff at the range (Wolf, S&B) and have about 250-300 rounds of it on hand.
I also have 100 Rounds of Hyra-Shok ammunition and another 100 Rounds of Cor-Bon ammunition which is saved for when the Defecation hits the Oscillation and was purchased several months before Obama was re-elected at normal pricing.
At this point, I’m going to hold off on buying more as the prices are way too high.
I have a variety of rounds from birdshot to buckshot for my Mossy 500, probably about 75 total.
If anything, I will stock up on some 12 Gauge when the next Gun Show rolls into town.
A good every day carry knife should be on everyone’s list as well.
I have a good quality but inexpensive and Kalifornia legal Pazoda CRKT folding knife with the combination straight/ serrated edge. It has a pocket clip and I always carry it when I go out since I can’t carry a firearm in Kalifornia.
After breaking it in and with the help of some WD-40, I can actually open it with a flick of the wrist and without using the thumb-hole assist.
I’ve never been a knife guy, but I’ve become fond of this little knife and found out the hard way that it has the potential to do some serious damage.
There is a simpler explanation for all of the gun/ammo sales than the dramatic “going to war” scenario.
First, this is the economy being stimulated in one of the ways easily available at the moment. Food, energy, entertainment, guns, etc., all fall under the heading of “consumer spending”, the single biggest component of the US economy. This component needs to keep moving, and it is, through fear.
Secondly, the government is not concerned about “going to war” with this population, at least half of which are willing livestock already. Between large-scale data mining of social media websites, comments sections of news articles, public forums, medical records, and other readily available financial data, the government has all the information they need to win a “war” without ever firing a shot. They know names, IP/MAC and real addresses, employers, bank accounts, friends and associates, etc., etc., and can shut down anyone they want with nothing but paperwork. 99% of gun owners will turn in their guns the day their ATM card stops working. The other 1% will get mopped up Dorner-style.
We are “free” only so far as we delude ourselves.
“99% of gun owners will turn in their guns the day their ATM card stops working.”
I disagree and think that most gun owners would be more determined to keep their guns once their ATM card stops working.
If that day comes, guns will be worth more than their weight in gold.
I wish in the short term Armalite would focus their employees on loading trucks so they can move the hell out of Illinois.
