If those LA cops are any indication they might need about 40 shots for every patriot.

Or preparing to avert one. Depends on one’s perspective.

We're at this point in this country:

If you're not familiar with the Battle of Helm's Deep, in the movie, Aldor, this gentleman, holds his arrow waveringly and eventually loses his grip and launches the first shot against the orcs.

It's only a matter of time. The nation is truly on pins and needles.

The military are our sons and daughters.

The Police are our neighbors.

The Department Of Homeland Security lives in their mother’s basement.

I think we’ve got the edge for the Civil War V2.0 that 0bama is fomenting.

Hey, lefty sheeperals who want to feel good about yourselves for supporting progressives, listen up, and know that you're responsible for it:

This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

This article been debunked.

In fact, people associated with Smith & Wesson have scoffed at this blog’s claim that they can only produce ~300 guns per day.

the people are sending a loud and clear message to their government.

Back off. Stop encroaching on our personal liberties. Limit yourself to your Constitutionally granted powers and nothing more.

Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, don't appear to be listening - and those just the states I've read about today... the jury is still out on what the Fed will try!

"AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated!...Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line."

Nothing like government instigating panic and hysteria through its manufacturers.

“This is a society preparing for war.”

My Rock River LAR-15 5.56, with optics, is just for shootin’ rabbits.

My Remington 870 tactical 12-gage, extended tube, etc., is just for birds.

My old .308 rifle and 30.30s are just for deer.

My handguns are for shootin’ moles and frogs.

All of the food, my medications and other stuff that I have stocked up on, is for when we go on extended camping vacations.

About that big cave looking hole I have been using my backhoe to dig into the side of my mountain, well, that’s just going to be a large fruit cellar.

Nope, I am not one of those Civil War people.... I’m not worried about that kind of stuff, because I know that Obama and our government leaders will take care of me.

A few observations:

(1) As a reloader, I am aware of the shortage of reloading parts, but it is not as bad as described. Last week I purchased two pounds of powder, but to find the exact brand and type I wanted, I needed to visit four stores that usually carry what I want. I saw primers in various sizes and brands while I was looking for powder. There are shortages, but mostly just low stock in most stores.

(2) Yes, there are also a lot of calibers of loaded ammo that are in short supply and many shelves are a lot more bear than normal.

(3) The local gun shop I went to had lots of bolt action rifles (including Arisaka’s and Nagants) and lots of shotguns. It also had lots of semi-automatic handguns and rifles, including several black rifles that Dianne F wants to ban. The price tags on the black rifles were a lot more than I wanted to pay and a good $300 to $500 more than what I could have purchased them for say a year ago.

In short, there is a huge demand caused by panic buying and resulting shortages. As someone who frequents gun shows, I think this is great, as in a few years there will be lots of buying opportunities as people get rid of older weapons, or inherited firearms.

I suspect that a lot of folks are “upgrading” the firearms they have. That is buying a new pistol in a service caliber or a new rifle with better features than the one that was in their gun safe.

We are the “most armed” country in the World, with around 88.9 firearms per 100 people. This work out to about 280 million firearms. So if just a small percentage of the 319 million people in this country deside to buy a couple of boxes of ammo or a new handgun, then the demand can overwhelm the supply chain.

“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.

Statement: "Guns And Ammo Production Maxed Out: “This Is A Society Preparing For War”"

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.

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.
