Limitations on ammo, guns, driving panic

As the Obama regime continues to advance restrictive gun-control legislation, average Americans are attempting to stock up on ammunition, which is in short supply. Ammo was the big seller this past weekend at the two-day Crossroads of the West Gun Show at the Ontario Convention Center in southern California.  “The line to purchase ammunition snaked around the exhibit hall,” said Bob Templeton, gun show owner. “It was taking nearly three hours for shoppers to make their way to the head of the line,” he said.

Not only are private individuals feeling the pinch, but law enforcement agencies nationwide are also affected, as firearms and ammunition fly off the shelves across the country, causing some dealers to limit sales.

Ammunition shortage continues to increase demand and prices, stripping some store shelves bare as gun owners rush to buy ammunition in anticipation of restrictive new gun laws.

CNS News runs a report, Ammo Manufacturers Scramble to Keep Up with Demand, Reassure Eager Customers, complete with information from various manufacturers.

As examples, here in Phoenix the disturbing news is that the Phoenix Police Department has stopped providing officers with 100 rounds of ammunition per month for practice. Tennessee’s Highway Patrol is still waiting for rifle and shotgun ammunition ordered in November.

Reports of government stockpiling of ammunition, and the lack of reasonable answers has increased public concerns. Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) and 14 of his House colleagues, who signed onto his March 5 letter, have asked the Department of Homeland Security to explain its purchase of approximately 2 billion rounds of ammunition of various calibers over the course of the last year — a fact which is believed to be exacerbating the bullet shortages. In his letter LaMalfa asks, “Are these purchases being conducted in a manner that strategically denies the American people access to ammunition?”

Great question, Congressman.

Additionally, the Social Security Administration posted this notice requesting a quote for ammunition indicating its intent to purchase 174,000 hollow point bullets. Why does the agency that is charged with sending senior citizens their monthly social security checks need bullets? Click on the first link under RFQ and read page 4.

Watch as presidential candidate Barack Obama, at a 2008 campaign event, declared he will not take Americans’ guns away:

“When you all go home and you’re talking to your buddies and you say, ah ‘He wants to take my gun away.’ You’ve heard it here; I’m on television so everybody knows it. I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.”

Maybe not.  But denying us the right to buy ammunition produces the same results, doesn’t it?

    The Obama administration (I like your use of the word “regime”) is obviously exercising its ability to control what’s available on the commercial market. How much clearer does it have to be for American citizens? Is it any wonder there is “panic” buying? I’ve been to Walmart numerous times and they have no ammo. The clerk told me that deliveries arrive (when they do arrive) between 6 and 7 am and there is a line outside the door that starts forming at 5 am.

    Here’s more!

    Why would the feds be purchasing and hoarding a billion rounds while going to exceptional lengths to disarm American citizens?. Those who are still brain dead need to wake up. Obama didn’t get elected by intelligent and informed voters.

  4. LD 19 Committeeman says:

    Obama doesn’t have to make any moves to confiscate weapons. They are irrelevant without ammunition. We might as well lay in a supply of rocks and slingshots.

    A vote for Obama was a vote against liberty and Constitutional freedoms. Thank the AEA for dumbing down our youth and ensuring our demise.

    There is a much more direct line of attack in play:

    “Repeal the Second Amendment Now”

    “By Repeal the Second Amendment Now”

    “To be delivered to: The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama”

    “Petition Statement”

    “Repeal the Second Amendment Now. This anachronistic, poorly worded amendment prevents us from passing real gun control measures that will be effective in stopping the ongoing gun slaughter. It should be no more a constitutional right to own a gun than to own a car.”

    “Petition Background”

    “Enough is enough. Americans shouldn’t have to be worried that an irresponsible gun-owning parent’s recklessness will result in the slaughter of their young children at school. We need REAL gun control. Stringent rules such as those in Australia or the UK. Dramatic reductions in the numbers of guns in American homes. In order to do that, we must first repeal the 2nd Amendment, to remove the deadly constitutional right of all Americans to own as many lethal weapons as they desire. Repealing the 2nd amendment won’t automatically make all gun ownership illegal, but it will allow us to move forward and create the rational rules we need for the 21st century.”

    Think the above petition is an isolated incident? Think again! It’s part of a coordinated effort. Here is the “Mexico” rationale:

    “May 15, 2012”

    “NBC News Contributor: Repeal 2nd Amendment So Guns Can’t Be Smuggled to Mexico”

    “When asked “what can Mexico legitimately ask of the U.S.?” Castañeda responded “It can ask what President Felipe Calderon has been asking and what every president has been asking for the past 40 years, which is, stop consuming so many drugs and repeal the Second Amendment…”

    “Castañeda is more than qualified to offer commentary on the subject. He served as foreign minister of Mexico from 2000-03 and is currently a Latin America policy analyst for both NBC News and Telemundo.”

    “ORCAS ISLAND, Wash. — A former Seattle police chief is calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment, and the controversial idea is drawing both praise and scorn.”

    • Night Owl says:

      Terrifying stuff, euby. I hope Americans wake up before it’s too late. Reacting to incidents, as horrific as they may be, is a disastrous basis for enacting legislation that restricts our Constitutionally guaranteed rights.

        Hi, Night Owl! :-)

        The “New World Order” people want to do away with the entire Constitution as it is the biggest legal obstacle to global governance.

        Watch this video of Joe Biden openly pitching the “New World Order”, trying to make it sound benign and in the interests of America and Americans:
