Ammunition – get it while it lasts

March 1, 2009

You’ve probably heard about the ammunition shortages going on around the country. There’s a lot of speculation going on about what exactly is causing it.

Here’s my take on it: people are scared. I’m not saying that’s the only reason for the shortage. You can read here for some good information on the subject.

But like I said, people are scared. I think that there are a lot of people out there losing faith in our government, and with good reason. People that wouldn’t normally even consider owning a gun are purchasing them.

And then there is Obama’s stance on gun control. His policies will undoubtedly cause the cost of owning a gun to rise. It’s a strong possibility that gun owners are stocking up while they can.

I’m not sure that Barry thought we’d all cling even harder to our guns after he got elected. Doesn’t he know you should never underestimate the ones with guns?

    I couldn’t disagree more with your primes. There has never been an ammunition “shortage” in this country. As demand goes up so will the supply. I agree people are scared, and thus the higher demand. However, with all his blustering obama will not be able to make ammunition illegal. This is not britan, and no matter how hard he tries it never will be.

    If you look out there the anecdotal evidence would suggest otherwise. People are finding it harder at this point (not saying it won’t change) to get a hold of ammunition.And whether Obama succeeds in banning guns or not (which I believe he would do right now if he could), his actions will have an adverse affect on the market. In fact, it looks to me like just his TALK about the issue is having an adverse effect. So swinging back around to my point, until supply catches up with the current demand, we’ve got a shortage. ~T the D
