    We are talking about panic buying in this thread, not federal laws.
    OK, I'll bite. So what's causing said panic buying?

    Ignorance and fear. Period.
    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

    Ignorance and fear create...insecurity. A mentality that say's "I'd better get mine now before it's all gone".

    I remember the gas crisis back in the 70's where people with more than half a tank were sitting in line to make sure they got enough. These are the insecure people that create the shortage. The problem is these people don't know when they have enough. For many people there is never enough.

    Never enough gas
    food
    guns
    Ammo
    money

    The list goes on...

    But the list was about having as much as possible of certain items. So it would have to be reliable womEN.



    Speaking of that: Q: Do you know what the punishment is in Saudi Arabia for having more than one wife?





    Answer: You have more than one wife.

Looks like I'll be doing the same for the next four years, judging from the numerous "ammo shortage" threads right here at DC. Thanks for asking.
    OK friend. I'll put money on my predictions. Let's make a wager shall we? By putting our money where our mouth is it carries more weight. I'm not rich nor a gambling man so, just for the principle of the thing, how about one brand spanking new US Dollar? We check back in 6 months and we pay up one way or the other?

    So just to clarify my position: I predict all "tactical" style rifles will go way up in price and there will be a panic run on ammo. Clear?

    Well obviously, that wouldn't do. One wife is supply enough.

    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."

    Things like this are why I don't support the NRA. They lie to get people riled up.

    I started this thread in jest (satire I guess) to make fun of what's about to happen because, as I've said in other posts, I'm stocked up. In fact, most of us here are probably well supplied.

    But since you asked the question:

    Quote Originally Posted by dbglock View Post

    OK I'll really lay it out for you.....MANY formerly anti or middle ground folks are in fear of and ignorant about what happens next.

    I'm not talking about gun bans or new laws. I'm talking about the United States in general. With debt mounting and the economy on the rocks there is real fear. Fear about what happens next. There are tough times ahead in the US, of this there can be no doubt. How bad will it get? Nobody knows how bad and that is where the fear and ignorance come in.

    There are fears about increased crime and lawlessness due to increased unemployment.

    There are fears about the National Debt.

    There are (well founded) fears of the dollar losing it's place as the world's currency and all of our money suddenly losing 9 to 25% of it's value overnight.

    There are fears of a total economic meltdown, mass inflation, hysteria and rioting similar to Argentina a decade ago. In fact, our financial numbers are worse than Argentina and well past the historical tipping point.


    Because of all of the above mentioned fears in the US I believe that many former NON gun owners will be flocking to the firearms market, probably en mass. The 2008 election was a catalyst for a massive run on arms (for entirely different reasons). I believe this election will have similar results.

    Well, yes. I guess that's the third step.

    I like non political gun organizations. I mean non political as in, only takes the side of gun rights and nothing else. Wayne LaPierre went off the deep end a while back.

    Shortages? Consider:

    Replacement of Ginsberg, Breyer, Kennedy and possibly Scalia in the next 4 years with younger Kagan/Sotomayor ideological clones. Could be the end of the 1st, 2nd & 4th amendments as we know them today. Just a thought.
