My son bought an AR15 in October at a local store nearby his home in tiny Sweeny, Tx. I was visiting him (I live near San Antonio) and he decided to buy ammo later. Christmas time, I visited him again and he regretted not buying ammo, since he couldn't find any by then. I have been trying to buy ammo since then with no success. I finally found some 9mm, but every other kind of ammo has been sold out. This certainly was not a hoax! My neighbor bought her first gun a few days ago and could not even find 9mm., after searching many different stores. She asked me if she could borrow a couple of bullets for now. I pray that people do not become complacent again. This is no joke or "hoax"!
That's because people are going crazy and are stocking up on ammo.

Yes, I read about that, Dianne Feinstein is an old and outdated politician she should get off politics and do what the rest of the old dirty politicians do this days, become a lobbyist for some pimp corporation.
no only she will make more money but also will probably get more laws passed

Of course this bill failed, it is unconstitutional, what was this crazy lady thinking.?

Yeah great we can keep our assault rifles, but what good is any gun without bullets. Maybe that's why the gubment is buying up all that ammo, to make it harder for us to find or buy them.

Plenty of 308 Ammo at USA ammo.com.

Prices look good.


Try the Colt LE901. It's new.

Great news! Now i'm heading out early tomorrow morning to gander mountain. Maybe the line will have ceased some.

It's funny how people are so butthurt over losing their gun control push. Freedom and common sense won, control lost. If you don't like semi auto rifles, don't buy one! That's the great thing about the bill of rights, you can choose to exercise those rights, or you can choose not to.

Your rights end where mine begin.

I think you have all been played.


The whole Obama thing is being played. Why? To begin: True. We can't have a nation of socialists starving in the streets. Why they can afford drugs and not food is anyone's guess. Big Brother has to give out welfare and food stamps so we don't have emaciated corpses lying around.....except for the ones who were eviscerated by amphetamines.

Wait! Are you saying they can afford amphetamines because they use their food stamp card as barter? Fifty cents on the dollar? Okay, mystery solved.

The antiwar is silent because Obama is their Messiah. 'Nuff said.

The global warming crowd has been silent because they likewise have Messiah Obama posters on their walls.

Like, do we care if crime ridden New York and Chicago pass their gun laws? No. Not really. We don't go to New York or Chicago.

And by the way, Chuck Norris shaved his beard. Socialists are really in trouble, now.

She was attempting to recieve the pity votes. She ended up looking like a clown in front of thousands of people (including those watching from home).

You can not win if you just work your way around the questions and attempt to sucker them up with a tear or two from personal tragedies.

I would not call it a stunning defeat; anyone could have seen this coming.

The Feinstein Wives have made the AR so popular that .223 ammo gets scarce. Everyone has an AR and needs the ammo. They rise at four in the morning to be at the store to snatch up the new supply of .223.

Truth is about ammo is that up to 2007, ammo manufacturing had oversupplied the demand. Ergo, ammo manufacturers laid off shifts and slowed down production.

The Feinstein Wives have resurrected the demand with a vengeance. Now the ammo manufacturers have rehired for the midnight shifts. Ammos on its way back.

Meanwhile, buy from the Mafia black market dealers

There is NO earthly way...or even cosmic way....a member of the NRA can out-cliché a socialist.

No way. Can't be done.

Assault weapon is a made up term. It is neither illegal to own or purchase a class III weapon and they can still be found, some for under $5k, thus his statement is false.

Bingo! Give that man a silver cigar.

Big Bro goes after the ammo cause there's waaaayyyyyyyy too many guns out there already. And there always will be.

But ammo manufacturing has re-cranked up after a hiatus since 2007, thereabouts. Supply and demand. For a spell, people weren't shooting as much. The Feinstein Wives have changed all that.

We actually owe a debt of gratitude to the Feinstein Wives. Oh, goody.....San Francisco is still using handiwipes for protection. Like, okay. Good for them.

Russia and China have built AK manufacturing plants throughout Latin America...and Cuba. Buy Russian or Chinese.....and I purchased a Chinese made 12 gauge at a better price than the Remington. The Chinese 12 gauge works like a charm.

There are more gun sources out there than oxygen.

Oh, the Feinstein Wives all stomp their feet in unison.

I am glad to hear that this did not pass. I do think there should be some laws in place on who can own a firearm but not far different from what we have in place now. Basically I don't want those who are violent or heavily medicated to be allowed a firearm. I am not sure I agree with all of the prohibitions on some now though. It is these laws that need to be looked into and not bans.

Also it would be great if more could be done in the way of mental health. Certainly there are leaps and bonds that could be taken in this area.

Upholding the second Amendment is priority. I believe that the people should be able to own anything the military does so long as one can afford it. Why cannot I not have a full automatic weapon to have fun with on my days off. For outright shooting a full automatic weapon is a bit useless unless you use 3 shot bursts.

For this matter though they are looking at banning rifles that are semiautomatic. Meaning the trigger has to be pulled for every shot and not just held down. You have to be some super human to use one in a automatic fashion. For the most part they are made to look military like but are not military grade. They are not assault weapons. That is a catchy word used to cause fear.

People often use the term ammunition clips for magazines. They are not clips, even if you call them that just as your car (not talking about an electric car) does not have a motor, it has an engine.

These terms have become so common though that despite the technical terms many still use them and most will know what you are talking about, even if you sound stupid using them.



As for the scaring kids in a school. Why should they be scared? Kids should be taught about firearms and the responsibility of them from an early age. My son who is 6 will soon be shooting a Winchester 67a .22. When I first showed him guns he was a bit shocked at first, but has been talking about wanting to shoot and happy that he has a gun to shoot. They need to learn the proper handling so that more accident's do not happen. I think the most accidents with kids and guns are from people not teaching their kids well enough or soon enough.


No one has the right to restrict what weapons I can own.

Good point. I wont be carrying a gun to any school thats for sure.


Why not? Afraid of what you might do?
Don't trust yourself?

I have zero issue with legal gun owners carrying a firearm around the most prescious in our society.



Not at all. Afraid of scaring the kids to death.
Very dramatic view there...not at all near "realistic" but I guess if one makes decisions solely based on emotional diarrhea then I guess that over-dramatic comment might make some sense



The kids who see nothing but death on tv
Its a sign of a true fool to see the issue with this as GUNS...and NOT MEDIA...


see 6 year olds shot to death and probably go to school a tiny bit more fearful than when you and I did.
you are confusing me man...is this as dramatic as you made it seem above or is it "a tiny bit" more fearful? regardless I hope you have the mental fortitude to acknowledge the gun-free zone didn't WORK...it never would...and it never will.

These one hit wonders, and mental cases who shoot up schools and public areas are in the SEVERE minority...So severe that IF and only IF...the rest were as well armed and willing to carry as these mass murderers are...they would stand NO CHANCE at all of pulling off anything remotely close to "mass"...it would be significantly LESS damage done overall. But of course you will dismiss this with the Hollywood made reality idea you have about how the wild west was...and you imagine everyone shooting everyone and use that as some flimsy platform to continue on with your illusions...


I don't feel like having one child see a gun in their school without knowing if its for protection or murder. Maybe that's why?
What concern are others people's children of yours? I've notice a trend with you and it seems you aspire to inject your opinion into others livelihoods like some kind of aspiring politician...hell even your self-portrait avatar is indicative of this...as if you are duplicating the pose of some prominent societal figure.


I don't think I've ever seen you post anything that involves YOU minding your own business...

If you don't want YOUR children to be around guns that is absolutely 100% your choice...see that's the beauty of the constitution and the bill of rights and the libertarian nature...we don't FORCE you to do ANYTHING...you don't HAVE to exercise your rights...the one and only limitation is that you make decisions for yourself and ONLY yourself and suffer the consequences of those decisions or reap the benefits of those decisions for yourself...

If you don't want guns around your children...don't own a gun...if you don't want them to see violence...throw your TV out the _..never turn on the NEWS...trust me the world will seem way less chaotic when you stop making the TV and MEDIA your reality...

step outside your door take in a deep breath of fresh air acknowledge the lack of chaos...and realize nothing is as chaotic as the TV/MEDIA/NEWS tells you it is...

something tells me you wont though...something tells me you will step outside look in your neighbors window and harass him for something you disagree with...it just seems your nature to do so.
