But we have an idea, based on how they were used: to protect their owners' homes, businesses, farms and families, and to resist the tyranny of government, which during the American Revolution was the British crown.

And state wildlife agencies, all benefiting from funding flowing from federal Pittman-Robertson excise taxes on those items, are still raking it in.

    Add the U.S. Postal Service to the list of federal agencies seeking to purchase what some Second Amendment activists say are alarmingly large quantities of ammunition. Earlier this year, the USPS posted a notice on its website, under the heading "Assorted Small Arms Ammunition," that says: "The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition. If your organization wishes to participate, you must pre-register. This message is only a notification of our intent to solicit proposals."

    Copper Is Getting Smoked After Bad Chinese Data Mamta BadkarMarch 9, 2014, 7:56 PMÔāô ÔÉē Copper futures are down 2.5% in early trading, to $3.0060 per pound. Copper has been taking a beating recently and it is likely that the recent decline in Chinese exports weighed on the data. Chinese exports were down 18.1% on the year in February, after rising 10.6% the previous month. Imports however were up 10.1%. While economists have warned about reading too much into Chinese data in the Jan-Feb period because of the impact of the Lunar New Year holiday, this has raised concerns about...

    The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has posted a request to purchase ďassorted small arms ammunition,Ē reports political analyst Michael Lotfi. The solicitation by the USPS was posted on FBO.gov, the federal governmentís federal business opportunities website. The process is now underway to arrange for the purchase of guns and ammo for some undisclosed use by the post office. As Lotfi points out, it is curious that the postal service can afford to arm itself given their precarious financial position: The USPS has been posting $1-5 billion quarterly losses for years. In fiscal year (FY) 2012 alone the USPS lost a...

    Let me tell you why you can't find any .22 ammo. Yes, people are buying it and selling it online. Yes, people are hoarding it. But these alone are not enough to make the supply at gun stores as low as they've been. The manufacturers are cranking out .22 as fast they can. 24/7. Wide open. Some are still backlogged for over a year. Where is it going? Why isn't it reaching the smaller stores like it used to? Here's the secret: IT IS.You see, when your local gun dealer tells you he only got a few boxes of .22,...
