    Yep, does seem to happen every election cycle. This is early for it, but I think people on all sides are more politically agitated this year than usual, so it probably makes sense that it would start earlier.

    Considering there are good arguments that both candidates will be looking to pass gun control bills, what else would you expect?

    True. Got to more all that inventory before they get stuck with overpriced stuff again after the hype dies down. The distributors are. A big part of this problem.

    More guns and ammo in the hands of the peons is not necessarily a bad thing.

    I wouldnt put it all on the gun shops. Everyone is afraid if the "freedom" Obama will have if he wins this election.

    In 2008 I rushed around and bought an AR-15. Heck, I can buy them at Dicks Sporting Goods now!

    Well the masses believe Obama is gonna take all their guns away BS again. The manufacturers feed on all the BS and are cleaning up in the process. They love all the spin and propaganda.

    It is..in the wrong hands. There are some folks I'd like to see disarmed, they make it bad for us.

    The gun stores aren't twisting anybody's arm to come in off the street to buy anyhting. They depend on consumer demand. Just my $.02 opinion.

    Yep, either way we have a candidate with a much less than ideal gun history.

    I agree. I'd like to see gun ownership go even more mainstream.

    :rant:

    This is why politicians can get away with assault weapons bans, because people don't understand what a "right" is. Are there some folks you'd like to see unable to practice their religion freely? The fact is scumbags are going to give responsible gun owners bad press in the same way that racists give everyone with free speech bad press. The answer is education and personal responsibility, not disarming people.


    As with last time around I expect prices to peak in October and most everywhere to be sold out of high demand items by mid October. I'll be doing my capitalist duties and buying low and selling high.

    If any of you are short on high cap mags or ammo pick it up now before the crowd goes wild. Actually a month or two ago would have been better, but better late than never.

    I believe in three things:

    The possible
    The probable
    and the infinite stupidity and greed of people (with politicians seemingly having a corner on this market).

    Now apply this to the current "buy as much as you can" and "get what you can now" mentality. Frankly, I don't see these people as gullible as late to the party.

    People can say what they want....but a second AWB or something even more reaching is hardly tin foil hat conspiracy theory; the fed did it once.

    If Obama can push through a 1200 page Health care bill which created how many different agencies and had to be passed "to see what this bill can do" does anyone even doubt for a second a 2nd Amendment limiting bill couldn't be at least introduced? If this happens...then watch the frenzy.

    I seen some guy holding a S&W M&P15 AR and the sales guy was weaving the tale, "I'm not sure how long I'm going to have it in. If you wait too long I might have bare shelves and if Obama wins who knows what is going to happen :wow:"

    For me its just annoying. I got what I need, so I'm in no panic, but it make buying the guns and ammo what I want for fun a PITA."
