Massad Ayoob on the coming election... buy ammo now.

Postby mauser1959 » Mon Apr 28, 2008 9:49 pm

One of the best American gun writers on the coming election and his ideas on the economic situation and what it means. I believe that this is a good read, no matter if you just hunt fowl or if your into other kinds of hunting. Just remember that if you hunt with a semi auto , there is a good chance that no one running for office is your friend.

I like how he calls the AR15 a sport utility rifle.

Ammo prices are going up, who knows what the next prez could do about guns. You just can't be certain, but i still think this is fear mongering....

Perhaps it is fear mongering , that being said , it still will not hurt you in the slightest, to have at least a K of primers on hand , with the shot , wadding and powder, to make them into shells... It is sure a lot cheaper to have what you need, than to have an air club. I heard one of the people running for office has made the statement that it is stated in the BORs that it your right to carry a gun, but it says nothing about ammo... however I have not been able to verify that statement so far.

You are correct, it never hurts to have it on hand. I'd rather shoot my gun than use it as a club!

What if your gun shoots a club?

Back on topic if you ask your local gun shop guy I bet he will tell you that he is doin alright. People are scared to death and are buying guns and ammo left and right. I am saving for a little black gun of some sort just so I have one before the ban takes place.

If guns ever get banned I have it all planned out. I am going to randomly assault innocent civilians with fruit. All kinds of fruit, oranges, apples, peaches, even bananas. I'll walk into a store and start throwing fruit at everyone, causing panic and fear. I'll act just like I'm seriously brandishing a weapon. And I'll recruit anyone I can. We'll see how long it takes to ban fruit, and have anti-fruit people.

I own a black rifle (actually two) and use the one to shoot pigs with, and the other stays in the trunk of my car in case of some sort of civil unrest. I also own a ruger mini 14, (which was not considered an assault weapon in the last ban) which I use for coyotes. However from the smart ass comments from McSwine, and some of the comments by the two democratic candidates, I am not reassured as to how long shooting can continue as a viable lifestyle. I hope to God that I am wrong, and that all the above is just bunk.

No way you get credit for that. I have quoted Red Dawn and mentioned it at least 8 times in my 1000 or so posts. Check the signature.

be careful stockpiling explosives... I knew a guy who died in a fire when his powder lit. He didn't have time to get away. Store it safely... not in the garage near any bench grinders or any other potential spark sources.
