I am fully aware of that. What's your point?
You, with your tiny little mind, just stated that banning cannabis is unconstitutional - cannabis is being grown by US farmers! So you think you are fully aware - I wonder of what? Your wingnuz drivel is pathetic ... how's your hero Glenn Beck?

You are not getting it!
If manufacturers meet the demand, the demand ceases. If the demand ceases, people find better things to do than lobby congressmen. If people don't lobby congressmen, Democrats get their way. If Democrats get their way, manufacturers go out of business.
On the other hand, if manufacturers maintain regular production and demand stays high, people lobby congress. Democrats fear losing re-election if they vote for further gun control measures. Manufacturers stay in business.
Stupid. I dont think they could make enough right now...I know a dozen people in my small area who cant find rounds they need...If they were there they would buy them.....Dumb business tactic.

You are looking at it from the other side, and not looking at the big picture.
I'm not saying its right, wrong, good, bad, or otherwise.

Regardless, you and they should have prepared. I would love to get my hands on certain calibers of ammo right now. Latest word is 4-6 weeks. But there's no danger of me running out of any ammo for any caliber firearm I own anytime soon.

It is not dumb at all.

The oil companies do it every day.

Try going to a car dealer , you will be lucky if the part you want is in stock.

An ammo manufacture is going to sell all he has without the increased cost and headaches of increased labor and administration of going full tilt 24 hours a day.

The solution is loading your own or waiting.

Since the founding of this country, marriage is the word we use to define the union of one man and one woman. The quest here is for government to redefine marriage between any two people. Most people resist this. It's been voted on state by state.

Marriage is not a liberty. Marriage is not a right. Marriage is not a club. Marriage is not a Constitutional right. Marriage is the government recognition of one man and one woman. That's it.

If the SC rules that marriage can be between any two people, then we open up a Pandora's box. The ruling would not only apply to two people of the opposite sex, but to anybody who believes their rights have been violated.

That means if I wish to marry my father because he's 83 years old and I can benefit from his SS money after he passes, it must be granted. Or perhaps I lost my job, but my sister is still working, and I could be covered under her medical care plan where she works if we wed.

The US Constitution does not mention marriage, heterosexual relationships, homosexual relationships nor incest. Like Church and State, it's not in there. Liberties and rights have to be written somewhere in order for us to respect them.

<quoted text>He works for Winchester. I mean one of biggest ammo makers. And if they dont ramp up most others are not I would assume. I had asked him if they were short of material he said no. Warehouse full he said....Dont make sense. To me that is the bigger potential scandal then gun bans. Is the government making these companies NOt produce more?? If so that is to me a great evil and unconstitution attack on our society.
Did you ever think maybe staying at normal production is safer than getting in a hurry with something like smokeless powder? It may be a safety concern. When factory employees get in a hurry, or work overtime, work tired, etc. accidents happen.

<quoted text>Yes liberals have made a mess. But also there is mess from the right also..I mean look at gay marriage bans and fight to ban abortion and many of the other "morality" laws....Those are unconstitutional also....
Why should gay marriage be considered a constitutional right. Show where marriage is addressed in the constitution.
Abortion is basically murder to erase the consequence of unprotected sex. How can you agree with banning capital murder, first degree murder, second degree murder, but not abortion?
A lack of morality is a majority of why the country is in the state it is in. Most people can't see it or admit it.

<quoted text>You could cure that with a flat tax.
If you made money and forget about giving it fancy names like income or wealth it would have the rich paying more.
Let's say 15 % is fair and a man or women makes 25,000.00 dollars a year.
25,000 x 15%= 3,750.00
Now lets say a man or women makes 2.5 million dollars(remember in this scenario it does not matter how)
2,500,000.00 x 15%= 375,000.
Now if my math is correct we have the rich paying more .
The liberals view that as attacking the poor. In their mind the poor lazy slobs shouldn’t pay income tax and we should give them money to reward their laziness.

<quoted text>Shows how out of touch you are! Your idea of fair tax makes about as much sense as national sales tax, where the only tax is on money spent. My 25000 which is all spent to survive and your 200,000 that you spent to survive is taxed at lets say 20%. Bottom line I am taxed on 100% of my made money(as you call it) while you would be taxed on 10% of your made money. Now back to your system my 25000 minus - 3750 tax leaves me 3750 in debt. Your 2.5 mil minus 375,000 leaves you with 2.125 mil in the bank. All off of the back of my labor for you. Please get real. You are close to having the right idea though, and that would be a progressive fair tax with all loopholes eliminated. See how easy it is to paint your own picture with numbers and the 1% are the professional painters.
If you would get off your lazy ass you could earn more money. Your view punishes people for their hard work and rewards the lazy.

Want more money? Better yourself, gain the skills needed to earn more. Want more money? Be innovative and create your own job. Want more money? Spend less time bitching and more time earning.

When I was young I worked two and three jobs to earn more money. I invested time in education and I took risks. I was self-employed most of my life. I’m in Florida now because a company made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Do you believe that was a gift? It was the result of many years of hard work building a reputation. They wanted my skills.

Get off your butt.

<quoted text>lol! And that's where the equality ends son. So really government puts money in your pocket.
You view deductions as the government putting money into someone’s pocket? Really? Do you understand how any of this works?

In retail do you believe the deduction “cost of goods sold” leads to the government giving retailers money?
