This is the time most people on this board (aka current gun owners or experienced buyers) can let the masses go to the gun shows, Dick's, Cabela's and the like.

Just stopped at a pawn shop my MIL's boyfriend recommended. While I did walk out empty handed he had several dozen revolvers, Glocks slightly overpriced but not by much (3rd Gen Used Glock 17 with 2 high cap mags and night sites for $525-but the night sites were starting to dim), he has several pretty much new 870's for $300. I had never been there before was the real reason I went.

His ammo was wayover priced...and his high caps were crazy...but guns he had a plenty. He actually had several AR package deals with cases, 4-6 high caps, slings, etc on mid-end rifles (Bushmasters, RRAs and the like) for about $1200. The last show my BIL went to had dealers asking $2000+ for similiar rifles.
Now when asked when I think things will change I answer "The next time Thomas (aka the fed) robs Peter (aka the 53%) to pay Paul (aka the 47%) and Peter pulls a gun...things will change"
