I absolutely love the NRA's logic. Obama is going to take away your guns. He hasn't done anything of the sort yet, and in fact has loosened some gun regulations, but he'll take them away - that's the plan. It's masterful. He's lulling you into a false sense of security because it will be that much sweeter to tear off the second amendment from the constitution itself and wipe his butt with it in front of you. He's just waiting for the right time to do it.

The right time being, of course, only after an incredibly difficult not remotely guaranteed re-election. Masterful.

Now the NRA would NEVER blow something our of proportion for their own gain would they?

I write copy for a sporting-goods company. The more our ammo sales go up (and BOY are they spiking now, just like they did in '08), the more my faith in the future of humanity goes down.

The Right...They're just so f*cking STUPID.

President Obama should support a tax credit for buying and registering a gun, just to f**k with them.

That is actually a valid point.

Been stocking up for about 2 years now. Mostly 12 Ga 00 Buckshot, .223/5.56, 45ACP and 22 LR. Also non-hybridized seeds, food and water.

When it all goes Greece I want to be prepared.

You know if the NRA didn't have so many people scared shiatless about how the government was going "take yer guns away", then maybe those same people wouldn't put such a high demand on the ammo market and prices could come down a little.

Seriously. It's impossible these days to find good, reliable, inexpensive ammo. You've already stocked up, arseholes.
 
2012-06-19 02:37:40 PM
The only two things that keep my idiot neighbor from buying more ammo: He's too cheap to buy at the jacked up prices and his house is packed with the leftovers from Y2K and 2008.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: President Obama should support a tax credit for buying and registering a gun, just to f**k with them.


Gun registration is unconstitutional. You have to call it a "Firearms Transfer Database" like Massachusetts does. They aren't keeping a database of the guns you own, they are keeping a database of every time a gun changes hands.
 
2012-06-19 02:39:50 PM
There is a local Gun & Pawn shop that's been running ads on the radio as to how gun sales rose last year at election time and how it's happening again. And how we need to 'Send a message about how serious Americans are about their 2nd amendment rights'
Dude is a total nut.

/his tag line is 'Faith, Family, Firearms. It's the American way'
//Living in GA, the majority probably agree with him.

Well, for buying. And Congress could do that, too, if it wanted, under the Militia clause:

Article I
Section. 8.

The Congress shall have Power ... To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;


Hell, Congress could legally *REQUIRE* you to buy a gun, especially if you are a male between the ages of 18 and 45.

Maybe if the government would start acting like the book 1984 was a warning and not a good idea we wouldn't be doing our due dilligence to be prepared to do our part to stop it.

No; this thread is a continuation of "violent crime will skyrocket due to increased firearm and ammunition sales" discussion.

I bought guns yesterday. Because when the Christian Sharia becomes law they'll come for guns first. The Left take guns away? Please. The Right continues to show more and more how oppressive and willing to stomp on rights they are daily. I'll be plugging fat, brainwashed, American flag suspender wearing Teabag patriots from my front porch when they come to take the guns away. Because after guns it will be minorities, atheists, non-christian religious folk, etc.

The NRA is, at this point, a propaganda machined for the republican party. They excel in hyperbole and fearmongering.

Really? Do you grow all your own food from those seeds now? Why do you think you will suddenly master agriculture when the SHTF? Not to mention you will be a season behind on food production unless you are already doing it.

I always chuckle when people think it's some kind of sign of some political movement when the weather gets warm and ammo sales goes up.

I guess more people at the range should alarm me. It must be a result of NRA propaganda and racist Obama hatred and has nothing to do with the nice weather and the cold and rainy months being over.

The main purpose of the NRA is to keep fat old white impotent conservatives from feeling threatened by non-caucasians. Had a convo with by brother right after Obama was elected; he was saying how hard it was to find ammo, and how expensive it was. I told him it was because the pants-wetting cowards in the right wing were AFRAID Obama was gonna take theyer guhns, so they were stockpiling. BOOM! Simultaneous glut and shortage of ammunition, and all the life's savings in the ammo manufacturer's pockets.

See, the folks in charge of the NRA are smart - they know how to push the buttons of insecure, uneducated FOX news viewers (but I repeat myself), and convince them that they should buy bullets instead of gold. Which, to be fair, is probably smarter in the long term.

So now the waterheads of the American Right are totally broke, sitting on cases of ammo while their kids go hungry and uneducated, and having a miserable time of it, all because they were dumb enough to be tricked into buying ammo instead of food.

And they blame Obama.

10. Tax everything.

This country is so wacked... it's like half are stoned and the other half are on bath salts. Then the third half are on meth... (wait, what?)

I fear for the president's safety. Hell, there are days I fear for MY safety with some of the crap that I read. But perhaps it's because of the respository of stupid and crazy that is aggregated before me every day here on FARK.

I have been here for about 4 years. And I still keep coming back.

Damn you, Drew... I just can't quit you.

2012-06-19 02:51:56 PM
I've been stockpiling 22, simply because that is what I shoot mostly. Still have most of the 45 and 7.62x51 I bought 5 years ago, simply because I don't shoot the centerfire a lot.

Why stock up on the 22? Because I couldn't find any to buy during 2009. And I've got a new GSG-1911-22 and a 22 conversion on the way for my FAL.

This issue is going to get really fun in about 70 years when shoulder mounted thermonuclear launchers and handheld laser vaporizers are on the market.

Liberals like me will be in coffee shops waxing on about how the founders would have been totally fine with AK47s with extended banana clips, but they never expected the second amendment to cover pocket sized predator drones.
