Sign Of The Times – Bullet Shortages

I disagree with the AP on this one.

Shooting ranges, gun dealers and bullet manufacturers say they have never seen such shortages. Bullets, especially for handguns, have been scarce for months because gun enthusiasts are stocking up on ammo, in part because they fear President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass antigun legislation — even though nothing specific has been proposed and the president last month signed a law allowing people to carry loaded guns in national parks.

I believe more people agree with Condoleezza Rice than are worried about gun bans.

Unless the U.S. leads the charge to stabilize Afghanistan and other volatile regions, “you can be assured you’ll have (terrorist) attacks from there again,” Rice said.

Or maybe more of the liberal violence that Nancy Pelosi mentioned?

    There is a pervasive and insidious disparity about the possession of firearms and ammunition, particularly as to quantities of either which may be lawfully possessed. Supposedly, the shortage of ammunition has to do with folks hoarding or maybe just an increase in the purchase of firearms and ammo in contemplation of the failure of the Constitution completely in the manner by which democracy was eliminated under George W Bush.

    There seem to be NO patriots in Congress, perhaps a few un-neutered last term Republicans have spoken out against the administration and Congress’ trampling of the Constitution. Blurting out two words of contempt recently cost one South Carolina Congressman a formal assault from a cadre of lifetime appointed racists and welfare ranchers. This liberalized, substitute government never rests in their desire to disarm citizens. Concern that the sale or possession of firearms is a real threat to individual liberty is genuine. People are voting with their pocketbooks, purchasing weapons for self defense, an astute politician is aware of this.

    DeadTed Kennedy would often poison any legislation that did not meet his addled perusal by attaching a rider requiring a per bullet federal tax or mandatory ammunition registration requirements.

    Although DeadTed was a Virginia resident for at least the last 40 years of his abominable life, the state that enabled him and his sordid family has grossly intolerant laws pertinent to the quantity of ammunition you may possess. There are regular reports of police seizing ‘stockpiles,’ ‘arsenals’ or ‘armories’ of either ammo or firearms for matters such as outstanding parking tickets. Or, as they are wont to do, property tax ‘appraisals.’ Yep, an assessor/appraiser shows up and wants to see inside your home, see your basement, try to determine if your property has had additional investment for them to tax. Pity the loss of a homeowner discovered to be in possession of unsecured ammunition or firearms! They will not likely be unsecured for long.

    Home invasions by Massachusetts government employees is never a violation of privacy–there is always the matter of the ‘common good’ to contend with.

    As a result of the socialist capitulation of Massachusetts and their kowtowing to the evil spirit of DeadTed, the law was abrogated yesterday such that the governor may now appoint a replacement Senator or surrogate Kennedy stand in.

    On the substance of that affront to western civilization, I have rebuked Massachusetts and renounced my residency. It was embarrassing enough to have disgraceful license plates on my vehicles and shameful to have to show a Massachusetts driver’s license at airports or customs facilities, before the corrupt government ‘elected’ to defile the most liberal state in the country with their most recent shenanigan. I’m finished with this place.

    And, it is not a moment too soon! I have possessed a variety of firearms over years of collecting and acquiring accessories and ammunition in various calibers. Massachussets would stop at nothing to remove those lawfully possessed items from me, if they only knew.

    Texas! That’s the place for me!
