But legislation comes slow-they'd know about the bill in time to protest.

Several gun manufacturers have already either stopped selling to law enforcement or moved their facility to more friendly state..

In all honesty, I'm surprised the administration hasn't gone after ammo. It would seem to me, far easier to to get the bills through. Adopt laws like Mexicos, no citizens are allowed to own law enforcement or military rounds. Permits needed to store over a certain amount of ammo. Or simply classify primers are DD's.


I think you overestimate this administration's commitment to gun control. I think the AWB is both silly and inevitable-they've bween pushing for it since the last one expired.

Otherwise, I don't think there are enough anti-gun far left wing politicians out there to really push anything beyond that.

That's really been an issue with building a solid pro gun base since the 80's in my opinion. All attempts at gun control are interpreted as steps towards confiscation so there's no discussion to be had. I partially blame the NRA for this exaggeration.

As far as ammo, don't forget the government needs ammo as well. If they restrict the private market they could face shortages in protest.

Tell him to come up to VA and buy from Quantico Tactical. They like Mil and LEO. I hate that all the true nut-jobs think that the popo and military are some sort of evil cohort in on the gun control movement. They aren't. Sure, some state agencies have come out anti-2A, but the vast majority of city, county, and municipal all say they won't enforce any crap laws that come out.

Or the day when you find one box of .45ACP for 60 bucks on a shelf next to a stack of .45 GAP at 26 a box.

I never thought I would see the day that 7.62x54 is cheaper than .22lr.

with prices the way they are I'm no shooting much any more. when I do shoot I damn well hit what I'm aiming at.


Yeah I don't shoot either. Just not worth a couple hundred bucks in ammo plus range fees.

Nobody's trying anything with ammo, the preppers and nuts are buying mass amounts of ammo because of gun control talk (totally logical amirite) then when the rednecks go to get the ammo the nuts alreadt bought they assume Obama has cut supplies and panic.

In turn, the ammo companies are sending out less ammo to keep the market rush going so you have guys waiting at the doors when the shops open to buy two boxes of .22 ammo they refuse to shoot because they don't understand basic economics. If they'd quit buying ammo they won't shoot there'd be ammo.

So annoying.

Natchez still has normal prices, so do some of the bigger stores.

Gunbot.net is what I cruise, good deals pop up occasionally but they go fast.

A year ago, that same box of 50 9mm cartridges would cost between $12-20.  Now prices have skyrocketed 450% because people are being retarded.
