I've stocked up on ammo for a couple reasons. One, I don't know whats going to happen. I don't recognize my country any more.
I also buy food and non perishables in bulk to save money. It's all going to go up in price. If I have room to store it, it costs me nothing to do so. Food, clothing, toiletries, everything goes up. We went through an ice storm here a few years ago. Some people were without power for weeks. I dont want to rely on the Government to rescue me. To me, buying ammo is no different than keeping staples stocked up for an emergency.
Might be a good time to sell those AR recievers in the goody box.
Realistically, this is going to be worse than 2008. It won't hit my area as bad as some, but I fully expect ammo to go up a couple dollars a box. AR's will go through the roof. I may even cash one of mine out if it gets high enough.
I am part of the problem. I decided a great way to forget about some recent unfortunate events would be to make a mountain of brass at the range. As I was grabbing gear I stopped at the ammo. Why use any of what I have stockpiled while it is still available on the shelves so freely?
Even a revived AWB wouldn't do anything to the availability of ammo. However, those that are in a panic about what the election means to our country are likely to make things difficult on the rest of us for the next few months. So, instead of taking the range ammo I have here at the house I went to Wally World and bought everything they had in 9mm, .40 S&W, and 45 ACP. Yeah, I'm a jerk and helped the process along. But my ammo stocks are still full.
So Timmy I believe you're right- with a little help from me your predictions are likely to come true.
Heller was 5-4. I find that very scary. Just one could be all it takes.
I would answer the rest of your question but that would probably put me in violation of the no politics rule. But in short, I believe that many believe we are on the cusp of financial ruin.
The many's belief was that one candidate, due to his background in business, and his choice of a VP, who had specialized in fiscal matters, was our only hope to stop the downward economic spiral we are in.
