Obviously this is a government conspiracy by the democrats to remove ammo from the shelves so that people cant overthrow Lord Obama.

I wouldn't necessarily say such.

Heavy buying will of necessity lead to shortages, and at some point the demand will taper which will lead to greater availability.

REMEMBER: DO NOT attribute to conspiracy, that which might well be the result of stupidity.

And no, I'm not calling anyone stupid. The market demand is as a result of the words and actions of the idiots in office.

Better to be prepared for war NOW, than later.

I wouldn't know since I never bought ammo in my life. All I ever used was what the army gave me to use on the firing range.

Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act (HR45)
2-16-9
Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill
HR 45 introduced into the House.

This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.

To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless:

·It is registered

·You are fingerprinted

·You supply a current Driver's License

·You supply your Social Security #

·You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing

·Each update - change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25 - Failure to do so you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.

·There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18.

They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 yrs. in prison.

If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of many options to read this. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family - pass this along.

This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense - chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.

If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe. After working with convicts for 26 years I know this bill, if passed, would make them happy and in less danger from their victims.

"Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth." - George Washington

Our founding fathers knew that history repeats its self whether anyone cares or not. To ensure that the people of the republic remain in power is the 2nd amendment.

These leader where way ahead of their time and wanted to ensure we could defend ourselves if we needed to.

I don't know if it will get to that but I would rather be safe then sorry.
Yep

During a Saturday interview with WWTC 1280 AM flagged by Smart Politics, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) slammed President Obama’s cap and trade plan, warning that it would have “the impact of forever changing our country.” She was particularly incensed that the bill was meant to address global warming, which she flatly denied was a human-caused problem:

BACHMANN: And actually, we want this debate because the science is on our side on this one. And the science indicates that human activity is not the cause of all this global warming. And that in fact, nature is the cause, with solar flares, etc.

Instead of merely opposing the legislation, however, Bachmann compared Washington, D.C. to “enemy lines” and urged her supporters to become “armed and dangerous” and fight a “revolution” against cap and trade legislation:

BACHMANN: And really now in Washington, I’m a foreign correspondent in enemy lines. And I try to keep everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington.

I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us, having a revolution every now and then is a good thing, and the people — we the people — are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States.

Listen here. Bachmann’s global warming denial comes at 3:52; her call for armed revolution begins at 9:40:

This is just the latest evidence of Bachmann’s disdain and disrespect for America’s government. Last fall, she unwittingly caused a firestorm after saying she was “absolutely” concerned that then-candidate Barack Obama “may have anti-American views,” and called for a McCarthy-like investigation into “anti-American” elements in Congress.“I think people would love to see an exposé like that,” she told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

Apparently “traditional American values,” which Bachmann insists she represents, include endorsing the armed overthrow of our own “enemy” government.

You can't make this stuff up.
