    When I watch and listen to him talk, I observe a masterful con artist. In my opinion, he appears to be weak and afraid to stand up to his own party on any issue that may adversely affect our country’s best interest.

When you consider buying a rifle because it may soon be banned from retail sale, you're making an economic decision based on your perception of the cost/availability of the rifle in the future. That's called speculation. When you stock up on ammo and supplies because of possible civil unrest or social disorder that's, again, speculation, because you're implicitly assuming that you won't be able to get those supplies as easily or at the same price in the future.
    All of this I understand my friend. The point of the article which is being lost is saying that the current run is not due to market manipulation or speculation as much as it is fear that Obama will ban the guns, for he he bans the guns, there would be no market at all for them then right? No speculation can come from a Banning of guns, for no market would be there other then black market. So the author's point of fear is more of a point then market speculation (if we use ban) as the focal point right and that's what started this recent run was Obama getting into office and the fear that a ban would follow soon afterwards.

    "(Obama) respects the constitutional rights of Americans to bear arms," an administration official said this week. "His administration is committed to protecting the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport and use guns."
    Yeah right.

    Thats why Obama( who proposed a 500% tax on ammo in Illinois)
    and took Biden as his running mate(author of the AWB), Clinton as his Secretary of State(would rather be over the UN),Pelosi, the Speaker of the House and 3 rd in line, (who cant tell which way is up on a gun) Holder, the Attorney General( and partly responsible for killing men,women and children in Waco and Ruby Ridge)all of which have repeatedly stated that rights of gun owners need to be curtailed to prevent crime.

    Don't think so............ When did politicians put jobs over personal agenda and whoring for votes?

    How many people were employed by the tobacco industry, and how many attempts are being made to put it out of existence?

    The same can be done to ANY commercial endeavor, including [especially] guns and ammunition.


    Excellent point! As a rural North Carolina resident, I've seen the impact.

    Couldn't agree more... Everything that comes out of his mouth is calculated and artificial. Just my opinion....

    Last week's gun show I went to was held in a county with lots of liberals here in Metro Atlanta and guess what, the waiting lines to get in WENT TOTALLY AROUND THE BUILDING, it took me almost 40min just to get inside... when I went to the georgia arms table, it took me another 40min just to buy reloading equipment... the line was very long and there were many first time buyers of gun stuff... and as I said, this was in a LIBERAL section of Metro Atlanta.

    People are concerned about losing the right to own a firearm, and many people are excising their rights... tied with the current political climate, it's easy to see what's going on.

    Even most liberals have no problems with private ownership of firearms. Its everyone elses guns they want banned.

    The shelves in the local Cabela's here in my state, had no shortages whatsoever, of ammo. (for the record).

    If there's a "run" .........it doesn't appear to be evident in Connecticut.

    Good investments... the WASR AK with the canted front sight you bought for 300 bucks 3 years ago now goes for 7 or 8 hundred... I wish my other investments performed like that...

    Why the run on guns and ammo?

    It could be because of fear of all the criminals that will get turned loose to save money. It could be because of the constant assault on our basic freedoms. It could be because of the fear and uncertainty of what nonsense will be handed down from Washington, regardless of the edicts constitutionality. It could be fear of our enemies now that we had a Fearless Leader who prides himself in kissing the backsides of every petty dictator he can find. It could be because of the fear of what will happen when the inevitable collapse of our economy occurs due to the staggering mountain of new debt and policies that stifle productivity.

    Or it could be, consciously or unconsciously, that folks will not stand for their homeland being turned into a socialist dictatorship, and are preparing for the worst.

    My gun club is not taking new members at this time. Ammunition is pretty scarce. IMO it is due to the thought that in the future guns will be restricted. I think that is correct. Fortunately, the Supreme Court has said that the right to bear arms is in fact a right.

    I went to a local show Saturday.
    lat month, horrid time parking, long lines to get in, couldn't move without meeting your neibhor.

    Saturday:
    Pulled right into a parking place
    Walked right in the door
    no problems at all walking around.

    vendors were all griping about the low attendance but it was the 1st sunny 80 degree weekend in our area.
