The reason why the prices went up on ammo is because the DHS is buying up billions of rounds nation wide creating a supply shortage.
Hollow points that can't be used for training purposes or in international warfare are being drained from the market as well.
Best case scenario is the feds are looking to stockpile them so they can re-sell the product at bloated prices,the exact crime you wrongly accuse ammo manufacturers of.
I thought you people liked capitalism.

Now you hate it?

Boy, you just can't decided which side of the line to stand on, can you?

The only part I'd tweak is the solution theory.
Liberals love to define,re-define and isolate the problems.
Theres never even a tentative solution because that would require meaningful change,which would require action in turn requiring leadership,all of which this nation is in short supply of.
Liberalism is about liberals first and country second. They don't make many decisions that doesn't involve more government or control over the people.

Not everybody having health insurance--more government
kids are too fat--more government.
people getting shot and killed--more regulation
wealthy people have a lot of money---more government.
people annoyed with smokers in public--more government.
people dying in car accidents because they're not wearing seat belts--more regulation.

There is no pragmatism in liberal solutions. Liberals don't regulate unless it benefits them in the process.

It's all the government's fault?

Of course it is and my toaster told me it's raising the price per slice.

Police would have new authority to take firearms away from Texans who are in a mental crisis under a bill the House approved on Tuesday that is now headed to Gov. Rick Perry's desk.

Senate Bill 1189, by state Sen. Joan Huffman, R-Southside Place, would allow police to confiscate guns from people who are experiencing a mental health crisis if they determine the person is a danger to themselves or others.

You're a prime candidate for this law.

Poor delusional teabagger.

There is no shortage.

There are idiots that decided they needed to buy another 5,000 rounds because some other idiot insisted there was a shortage.

I find it very entertaining.

You better go out and buy some more.

Democrats did that with Humphrey–Hawkins Full Employment Act.

In response to rising unemployment levels in the 1970s, Representative Augustus Hawkins and Senator Hubert Humphrey created the Full Employment and Balanced Growth Act. It was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter on October 27, 1978, and codified as 15 USC § 3101. The Act explicitly instructs the nation to strive toward four ultimate goals: full employment, growth in production, price stability, and balance of trade and budget. By explicitly setting requirements and goals for the federal government to attain, the Act is markedly stronger than its predecessor.(An alternate view is that the 1946 Act concentrated on employment, and Humphrey-Hawkins, by specifying four competing and possibly inconsistent goals, de-emphasized full employment as the sole primary national economic goal.)

Explicitly states that the federal government will rely primarily on private enterprise to achieve the four goals.

Instructs the government to take reasonable means to balance the budget.

Instructs the government to establish a balance of trade, i.e., to avoid trade surpluses or deficits.

Mandates the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to establish a monetary policy that maintains long-run growth, minimizes inflation, and promotes price stability.

Instructs the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to transmit an Monetary Policy Report to the Congress twice a year outlining its monetary policy.

Requires the President to set numerical goals for the economy of the next fiscal year in the Economic Report of the President and to suggest policies that will achieve these goals.

Requires the Chairman of the Federal Reserve to connect the monetary policy with the Presidential economic policy.

Right, that form of socialism is called American Capitalism today by applying Keynesian economics which the US has been on since FDR & the Passage of the Employment Act of 1946 which Its main purpose was to lay the responsibility of economic stability of inflation and unemployment onto the federal government and with that the free market was no more.

What? That piece of drivel has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard – I feel sorry for you! What has conservatism ever accomplished to benefit society – nothing absolutely nothing. Conservatives agree only on one thing: They are right and the rest of the world is wrong! Being prudent, frugal, religious, moderate and "All-American" is not what makes a political conservative – not by a long shot. Most liberals, in fact, are all of these things. These are common sense and virtuous ways of living. Liberals want a small government and low taxes, the smallest and lowest we can have and still maintain a modern, fair and just society – and that is the difference!
Liberals love the Post Office, the Interstate Highway System, the National Parks, the space program, the National Weather Center. They are mighty proud of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, plus their local firemen and law officers. They wholly support and fully realize the importance of programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. To support all these things they are willing to pay their fair share in taxes.
On the other hand, they don't support military escapades just because some party tells them to. They don't believe that corporations are people. They don't like it when the super rich get away without paying their fair share of taxes.(But the rich pay most of the federal taxes, conservatives like to say, of course they do – they own 90% of what can be owned, their stake in the game is huge, they don’t pay nearly as much as they should). Liberals do not like corporations that ship American jobs overseas, nor those that have turned into bullies or pirates.
And most importantly: Not for a New York second do liberals believe that capitalism can regulate itself.

that is true about Modern Liberals which there is nothing truly liberal about anything these Modern Liberals advocate.

Classical Liberalism vs. Modern Liberalism and Modern Conservatism

The Sociology of Modern Liberalism.

Most liberals — at least mainstream liberals — believe you should be able to say anything you like (other than yelling fire in a crowded theater), no matter how much it offends and, for the most part, no matter how seditious. They also believe you should be able to publish almost anything as a matter of right. But they reject the idea of economic rights. They reject, for example, the notion of a right to freely sell one’s services in the labor market. The New York Times in particular supports minimum wage legislation that keeps people from working if they cannot produce at least $7.25 an hour.

Similarly, in the liberal view of the world, the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker have no fundamental right to enter their chosen professions and sell their goods to the public. The medieval guilds that Adam Smith criticized were in this view not violating any fundamental rights when they restricted entry, controlled prices and output and imposed other monopolistic constraints. The same principle applies to modern special interest legislation.

Liberals are not advocates of special interest legislation per se. But they are apologists for it in the sense they believe that economic regulations should be decided by democratic political institutions, not by court-enforced rights to freedom of contract. So if butchers, bakers and candlestick makers succeed in obtaining special interest favors from government at the expense of everyone else, that is a legitimate exercise of political power.

The New York Times believes that you have a right to engage in almost any sexual activity in the privacy of your own bedroom. But the Times does not believe you have a fundamental right to rent your bedroom (or any other room) to your sexual partner – or to anyone else for that matter. Indeed, the Times is fully supportive of the principle of government regulation of who can rent to whom, for how long, under what circumstances, and at what price.

The liberal’s view of rights is closely connected to the issue of trust. The editorial page of The New York Times does not trust government to read our mail or listen to our phone calls — even if the caller is talking to young Arab males behaving suspiciously. Yet the Times editorial writers are completely comfortable with having government control their retirement income, even though Social Security has been managed like a Ponzi scheme. They are also willing to cede control to government over their (and everyone else’s) health care, including the power to make rationing decisions about who lives and who dies!

What liberals believe is that THEY alone are the arbiters as to what "a fair share" is. Who made liberals king? After all, 10% of $100,000 is $10,000. 10% of $1,000,000 is $100,000. With a flat tax, the wealthy still pay much more than those who earn less.

No, what liberals do is attack small groups of Americans because small groups of Americans can't vote them out. They steal money from everybody else to give goodies to their supporters. Why do you think that such a failed President was reelected? Half of the people in this country are supported partially or entirely by the federal government. We have the most government dependents in this country in decades thanks to Democrats being in charge.

When was the last time liberals ever regulated anything without it benefiting them or their party? When? Liberalism is about cradle to grave government--the exact type of government our founders were against. Liberalism is about making as many government dependent people as possible. The more government dependents, the more likely Democrat voters be they on the dole or working in the ever expanding government. The Democrat party is the party of irresponsibility. After all, if every American were self-reliant and responsible for themselves, then who would need Democrats?

They don't write the laws or the government. That's why we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world.

It's bad enough you guys try to blame everything on Bush, but now Reagan? What's next when that doesn't work? Nixon?

If Reaganomics was so bad, why did it work for Reagan? Why did it work during the 90's when Clinton was in office for 8 years? Why did it work for most of Bush's years?
