I just went to the gun show yesterday. You may be spending the whole month's pay checks on ammo if you get your setup.
Prices are triple what they were a month ago.
223 ammo is $999.99 per 1000 rounds.
The AR-15's that sold for $800 to $1500 a month ago are now $2200 to $ 3600.
In conditions we’re in currently nearly everything at gun shows will be priced higher.

I can get cases of .223 for just $400. Maybe I should buy it and sell at gun shows.

So do you have any theory as to why Officer Crowley lied in his report? What was he trying to pull?

Actually, YOU misquoted and misread information from Officer Crowley's report that I pointed out to you earlier...that you never responded to. On several points you were wrong and incorrect.
I was both "wrong" and "incorrect"? LOL.

You could make a decent profit (25% minimum) from what I saw on Sunday.

We need cuts to social programs. Liberals are like a teen with a credit card. They’re not out of money until they reach the credit limit. Then they want a limit increase. Eventually that money must be repaid. What are your plans for that?
You know a lot of Republicans want to do away with the socialist programs named Social Security and Medicare. But I have yet to see a Repub turn 65 and not signup for either program. Hypocrites.

Did YOU..."Sante Fe Spammer"...?

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising AmericaÂ’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a Sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our GovernmentÂ’s reckless fiscal policies....Increasing AmericaÂ’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here'. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and Grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

NICE! And, this is the second time under Obama's presidency that he has wanted to raise the debt ceiling.

Liar. You can't even post one instance of a Repub saying they want to do away with either of those programs. You just remark while having Huff-n-Blo pecker marks across your cheeks.

If you can get 1000 round cases of .223 for $400, I would jump on it. Especially if its not that burdan primed, steel cased crap.
A month ago, I could buy boxer primed, brass cased .223 for just under that $400 per 1000 mark. Now, that same ammo is nearly 3 times the price.

A copy of Crowleys' resport is available online. All you have to do is type "Officer Crowley's report" into Google. Read the report and then tell me what I'm wrong about.

Oh yes I did specify it on page 144, post #3089 and #3090...I'm sure you saw them like you have the rest of these.

Even has a link to Officer Crowley's report for you...so you can refresh your memory since you had several things wrong.

Well, at least we are reading from the same report. I think you may be splitting hairs though. Here is the point I was making. You right wingers always claim to be against too much "government power".

The whole "second amendment" business is all about freedom from government oppression, I thought. In other words, you guys claim to be ready to shoot it out with the "government" if they try to assert too much authority over you, right?

But here, with the Gates situation, you apparently feel that it's ok for the government to arrest a citizen, just for "talking back". So which is it? Even going along with your point, that Gates was yelling and shouting insults at the officer, I have to say "So what?" After all, Gates was in his own home. I thought you second amendement types were all about "a man's home is his castle" type thinking.

So you see my confusion. On the one hand, you puff up your chests and make threatening noises about how the government better not tread on your rights. But then, in Gates case, you make the opposite argument, i.e. even if you are in your own home, don't talk back to the government. Again, which is it?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
