    Has anybody ever bothered to ask the question that's more important than, "Do I have enough ammo?", which is of course, "Do I really need a storage shed full of ammo?" In any event, make no mistake about what drove up prices, if they indeed go up.

    I planned ahead so there won't be any ammo or gun shortages in my house.

    It's funny because this comment says something that couldn't have happened if the comment was actually true.

    I try to stay stocked on ammo regardless. I've been doing a very bad job at that lately. Been shooting more than buying. The problem is, any purchase NOW will be thought that it's a panic buy because of the election results, where as some people, just simply need ammo.

    People who have an incessant need to buy ammo because of an insecurity of never having 'enough' makes me wonder if secretly they have teddy bears to help them through those dark and scary nights. Maybe they go to bed with the lights on. After all... the darkness and the inability to see IS really scary...and those shadows...yikes!

    Personally I can "never have enough ammo" because I shoot a lot, not because of some desire to hoard tens of thousands of rounds to make me feel safe.

    The UN treaty won't do anything to us, at all.

    UN Arms Trade Treaty will not limit Second Amendment rights as the NRA claims - Charlotte Society & Culture | Examiner.com

    "Quite plain and simple, the U.N. has no intention whatsoever to limit Second Amendment rights afforded to Americans by the United States Constitution. Furthermore, if the U.N. attempts in any way to limit Second Amendment rights or for that matter, if the U.N. oversteps the sovereignty of any state, the United States will immediately cease its support for the ATT. For the NRA to promote the claim that the ATT will limit Second Amendment rights is not only misleading and irresponsible, it also serves against the protection of human rights."

    This conspiracy theory really needs to be put to bed.

    It's a zombie issue. You can shoot it down but some crazy voodoo shaman keeps on raising it from the dead and throwing it in your face hoping you'll get infected and join in. Kinda like the Birther movement.

    If the Chicken Littles don't chill, we are going to be reading accounts of citizens pulling guns on one another to cut the ammo line at Wally World and Cabela's.
