Muta: Tilting windmills is the primary function of a small government.
Molavian: notto: kortex: Fark is so very liberal these days. It almost makes me want to stop reading the site. Sadly, I enjoy the humor.Reality has a liberal bias.No, it doesn't. Your perception of reality is distorted by your liberal bias.Today's Fark is way left of center. Fark of yesteryear was much more centrist in dispensing snark.
Mimic_Octopus: crazy huh ? care to tell me where all the target grade and price 9mm and .40S&W has been for the past farking year then asshole ? Dont tell me the gun nuts are buying it, they are forced to spend goddamned $500 a case on tactical hollow points since a box of regular FMJ has not hit a shelf since last summer. A little expensive to practice to proficiency at that rate wouldn't you say ?
ZeroPly: Calmamity: EvilEgg: Wouldn't the manufacturers just say "great!" and add a second shift or something?As I understand it, the manufacturers are all running at full capacity (supposedly), and the next step would be building new facilities, which none of them are willing to roll the dice on.I want someone knowledgeable to explain this to me...The ammo plants have been running at maximum capacity for YEARS now. Since Obama took office, they've been running extra shifts and cranking out huge quantities of ammo. In the last 5 months it went full retard - one of my nephews who works at Walmart said that a skid of ammo came in and people were taking vacation days to come in and buy the maximum allowed, once word got to them. One guy brought in his 5 year old and 7 year old to try to buy extra ammo under their names (no-go, not even at Walmart).So who is stockpiling all of this? Joe Bob can't possibly be hoarding 250,000 rounds of 22LR in his basement. So is all the ammo winding up with shadowy consortiums? Speculators? And there just aren't enough ranges in the US to burn this much.
detritus: Except the DHS has been buying a ridiculous amount of hollow point ammo under the Obama administration, and good luck finding any on the shelves right now. Regardless of the intent, the industry has not been able to keep up with civilian demand.
KittyGlitterSparkles: Also, if you know where to look on the internet, you can find ammo. Luckygunner has plenty of 223, 9mm, 40 cal, 7.62x39 ect. At least they did last night.

nmrsnr: Triumph: This is about keeping government agencies from wasteful spending, not about the ammo supplies in retail stores.You'd be right, except that Inhofe and Lucas explicitly said that you're wrong:"President Obama has been adamant about curbing law-abiding Americans' access and opportunities to exercise their Second Amendment rights," said Inhofe. "One way the Obama Administration is able to do this is by limiting what's available in the market with federal agencies purchasing unnecessary stockpiles of ammunition.""After hearing from my constituents about the shortage of ammunition in Oklahoma and the Department of Homeland Security's profligate purchases of ammunition," said Lucas. "We have introduced the AMMO Act of 2013 to curtail these purchases so Americans can exercise their Second Amendment rights without being encumbered by the federal government."
Aarontology: There isn't an anti-Obama conspiracy theory yet that the House GOP hasn't attempted to draft laws to combat.
