It's becaues the common citizen can planly see that the Administration is preparing to disarm us one step at a time. I saw this coming and got myself 10,000 rounds put away. let them come.
When ammo goes onto the shelf at walmart it's gone in just a few min.
Homeland Security has order 1.6 billion rounds and no one is asking what for!

Why don't they just use drones? Too bad paranoia is not in shorter supply. You sound like you are doing too much Meth tonight.

Partly its because of the crackdown on guns recently and the massive buying spree that has resulted from it, but mostly it's because we all see something bad on the horizon. Preppers, survivalists, hunters, and handloaders are all stocking up on ammo in preparation for the proposed ban or regulation of ammo that the government wants to impelement.

I love all the weapons Obama is pushing into the hands of Americans. I feel safer by the day. Thanks Obama for the gun proliferation!

There has been no crack down on guns as of yet. It is just that gun owners as a group are paranoid. By the way ammunition has a finite life span, stockpiling is really not well through out.

Gun owners must grow up or there will be stricter gun laws enacted, it is common sense.

Well its 9mm and .40 cal ammo that they are stocking up on. But who has the reason for the SSA? Is there guna be a geriatric revolt?
The official explanation is that the ammo is being bought for "personal defense and practice". Although why the SSA would need any weapons at all is odd. All sorts of other gov't agencies are buying up vast quantities of ammo lately, even the National Oceanographic Society, supposedly for the same purpose. And now amidst a proposed ban on AR-15 "assault weapons" that the libs think we don't need, the DHS is seeking to buy more than 4,000 of them for "personal defense". Funny how we can't have them and don't need them, but they think they do. And now there's a litmus test being forced on our military leadership asking them whether or not they'll fire on American citizens. This is why I need my guns and ammo.

Paranoid dribble.

Do you make money from gun or ammunition?

Oddly enough, I can. I've been an amatuer gunsmith for several years and occasionally do make repairs for friends. But no, I don't make serious money from them. I have them so that thugs and killers can't take what I have because they know nothing better than entitlement and robbery. If you don't like it, that's your prerogative. But just because we have different views doesn't make one of us better or worse than the other. Don't try to force your beliefs on me because you think it's better.

If you are not trying to force your beliefs on people, why start this topic? Physical fitness also increases brain function.

I didn't start this thread. Just commenting. I don't force my beliefs on people. I just state my opinion and try to keep objective. I just don't like the way that some people say "think like me or you're stupid and afraid". I don't say that to others, nor do I try to convince them that I'm right and they're wrong.
PS - Don't assume that because I don't think like you or that I carry a gun that I'm some overweight fatty, as you say. It almost sounds like you have some problems with yourself since you're so obsessed with physical fitness. I'm not buff or anything, but I consider myself fit. Maybe you should look at yourself before judging others.

I know that physical fitness will make you safer that a gun!!!!
You need to look at the other people want to or do carry a gun.

In the end does carrying a gun pass the WWJD test?

Jesus would carry a single shot rifle because with a single shot you save ammo, everyone knows Jesus saves.

Really He would not go armed, it is hard to turn the other cheek when you have a .40 with 15 in the mag and 3 spares in your pocket.

Preach on preacher man. I was wondering when a man of God was going to tell us what Jesus would do.
