    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.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    But since you asked the question:



    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 written.

    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.

    If I had the extra cash, I'd do the same thing, for the same reason.

    I, too will keep it on the 2nd. How many people, precisely are now allowed to carry firearms as a result of Heller? Folks like you and me have Ohioans For Concealed Carry and Buckeye Firearms, and the politicians they helped along the way to thank for our current status. Similarly, the people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have the recently-pro-gun Mitt Romney's signature on this: "Assault Weapon" Facts and Information for MA Residents

    How many would have lost their rights if Heller went the other way? Who knows? What other decisions would have followed a Heller loss?

    It's not what we have my friend, it's what we will lose with a long term shift in the SC. That is what is scary.

    Yup, that's why it wouldn't have been much different if last night went the other way. My state has awful gun laws he said he was never going to touch.

    It becomes a debate between the slippery slope, current events, and history. I know that Ohioans enjoy more 2nd amendment-related benefits now than at any time in history, unlike the folks in Massachusetts.

    True, true. Sadly, I think we will see what a one judge shift looks like in the next four years. I am still mad at daddy Bush for hosing us with his nominees back in the late 80s/early 90s. Only time will tell.
