The store where I buy had stocked up on EBRs (mostly M4 clones) during the summer. They were pretty much cleaned out by the end of November. But they say that a small but steady stream of new product has been coming in since then. But that gets whittled down every weekend, when more people come in to buy.
The auto companies should include a certificate for a free "EBR" with every car. It's a cheap incentive, and would get people buying cars again. There's no depression in the firearms industry right now. People are definitely aware that this could be a "use it or lose it" situation.
America’s Rifle to go with your American car - I like it.
Problem is the carmakers would think EBR means Emergency Bailout Revenue.
