Thats a good point.
People freaking out about an Assault Weapon Ban that isn't even up for a vote is leading to a lack of supply for ammo.
Cheaper Than Dirt, Bass Pro. Cabelas, etc, are completely sold out of ammo. Kind of crazy.
In Illinois you have to apply for an ID card to purchase or use firearms at a gun range. The waiting period went from 30 to 60+ days, because of a record amount of applications since Sandy Hook.
you guys should look into learning how to craft your own
Their initial budget was around $35 billion when they were created after 9-11. The 2013 budget is around $46 billion.
When you add in inflation the budget has only increased by about $4 billion or so annually.
They haven't used weapons to prevent terrorism, but they have arrested a few dozen people or so that had intent. However, many of those people were given fake bombs by FBI agents in "sting operations" and then arrested.

I have a client that sells metals to different manufacturers. He says that they are running at full blast. They too are having hard times getting necessary supplies to manufacture the ammo. There has been no justifiable explanation for what DHS is doing. I am surprised that you or CMXI doesn't have a halfway reasonable explanation from the other side of the aisle.
It's not regulations its uncertainty. Right now it's better to be the guy who's too cautious than the guy who wasn't cautious enough.
Who said it was a one-off purchase by the Feds, they most certainly have the ability to do this in perpetuity.
Your #5 is just laughable.

It's both. If uncertainty about regulations did not apply, banks would be lending a lot more money. Instead, everyone is hoarding cash despite the facade of recovery. It's still happening despite what we're told. Everyone from small business to multi-national conglomerates are still hoarding cash and stripping every last penny they can out of their overhead...economic and regulatory uncertainty.
As far as ammunition regulations are concerned, if the government was intending to ban certain types, wouldn't it be prudent to take a lot of it off the market in an indiscreet way prior to action?

What do I say I am?
1.) Ummm...okay whatever. What the hell do you want anyone to say here?
2.) As of now they aren't.
3.) see my first response to this point, your main point throughout the thread, that I have already addressed
4.) Doesn't look like they are going to be able to regulate much of anything.
5.) stupid point.
Happy now? I addressed the only point worth addressing in your last post, a point which owned you so badly that all you could do was bitch about me not addressing all of your asinine points.
