    Elizabeth Warren is calling for a 50% tax on ammo. Will this happen? Probably not.....but what if the dems win the election and the Senate next year? It's safe to say you can kiss your gun rights goodbye!

    BUY AMMO NOW!

    I am NOT being a fear monger, alarmist or conspiracy theorist, just issuing a friendly reminder that you better be buying ammo now because next year it will be in high demand, and that means short supply.

    **** UPDATE ****
    PLEASE SEE POST #752 FOR A "ONE YEAR LATER" MESSAGE!!!

    Chris Rock said it years ago: don't need gun control.....need bullet control. $5,000 a bullet. No more innocent bystanders and if someone got shot, they must have deserved it. (was funny as hell at the time)

    Didn't post skit because of language but it is on YouTube if you need a laugh

    Yup....those crazy idjits are really gonna have to save up some money before they go on a shooting spree....that'll really make them think twice. But at least the gubermint will get a few bucks from the deal.

    The ammo tax scheme is not new. I see it d.o.a.

    One should treat ammo buying like retirement saving. Invest X amount each month or quarter. When the price is down, you are buying more. When the price is up, you buy less. "Dollar cost averaging" works as well with guns and ammo as it does with an index fund.

    You should never not be saving for retirement, and never not be buying ammo. In each instance, trying to time the market usually leads to failure.

    Probability that she wins the nomination AND the election:
    29% X 15% = 4.35%

    Edit: Correction, these are dependent events so the probabilities can't be multiplied.

    Yet another example of how ******** love their regressive taxes proving they don't really care about the lower and middle classes, nor do they care about actually solving problems.

    You could tax ammo 10000% and it wouldn't have stopped a single mass shooting.

    The dems aren't going to win anything next year, matter of fact they'll lose seats. Watch and see.

    Trust me, I don't want to be right, but I think we all know what's coming.

    This time next summer, when 22LR bricks are selling for $80-$100 each, I'm going to bump this thread.

    Stay tuned.

    Oh, give it a rest, Chicken Little. The sky is just fine.

    The last time we had a "bank run" on the arms and ammo industry was in '07 and '08 when Obama was gaining the lead in the presidential race.
    Remember how that worked out for us? Shortages of guns, powder, bullets, supply chains completely empty of primers, dog eat dog behavior over the few who had the commodities, price gouging ...
    And nothing significantly changed in the gun industry during the Obama years. It has taken YEARS for our industry to recover from that- some aspects are still in recovery mode.

    No, we don't need to start that alarmist fear mongering again.
