There can be little question that the Obama administration will try to assault the rights of gun owners everywhere…eventually. There is already word of an attempt at another silly “assault weapons” ban, which will be no doubt accompanied by the old canard of “we respect the rights of hunters but blah blah blah”. I am not so sure if another ban will go through as there are a lot of Donk senators from states where gun rights is a very large issue.
A more logical approach would be for the Dems to go after ammunition. Right after the election I read in a lot of places about the “Obama bounce” for gun manufacturers and ammo manufacturers alike. I, for one, have been shopping for an evil black rifle and have been stockpiling tens of thousands of rounds of ammo of different calibers for my enjoyment (and/or defense) later on.
The usual place that I purchase my ammo hasn’t raised their prices much, but they have been out of a lot of stuff lately. I just ordered from Cabela’s yesterday, and the prices were just slightly higher than I am used to paying, but I also had to eat the freight. All in all, not too bad of a deal.
I am interested to see in different areas of the country what the ammunition situation looks like, and if you are experiencing any price spikes or shortages.
