With the defeat of an Anti-Gun Bill in the U.S. Senate via a failed filibuster breaking vote 54-46 (needed 60 to bring it to debate and vote); we see the demise of the most recent hurdle being erected in front of law abiding citizens. Opinions of the bill vary from person to person but I believe that we can strengthen modern checks as opposed to introducing more and more redundant checks. I could write on and on about my views of the topic but that's not why you're here. I've already read post proclaiming this is the end of the Gun/Ammo Run of 2013...
Does this mean I'll be able to find ammo?
In a word: no.
How about guns and magazines?
You should be good in that department. We've already seen rifles gathering dust on shelves locally.
Ammo is another story...
It's not that manufactures aren't making rounds at breakneck speed in prodigious amounts; because they are. It's because of the guy in front of you that buys 2,000 rounds of .22LR and 500 rounds of 45ACP and smiles as he swipes his credit card and says, "I don't even own a 45," and gives you that stupid smirk.
You've seen this guy. He doesn't shoot through a brick of 525 .22LR in a year, but he buys thousands of rounds every time he finds some because you know; it's hard to find. He buys hundreds of rounds of 9mm at a time because his buddy said that they aren't making it anymore, so 'these' boxes must be the last ones and therefore must buy them all! Even though he doesn't own a single firearm chambered for 9mm.
Next time you see this guy and he's saying he can't find ammo anywhere (as he's buying hundreds of rounds) tell him he's why. If, by chance, you are that guy; STOP IT!
