Let me lay this out for everyone:
I am a gun-loving American. I am a full supporter of the Bill of Rights, Constitution, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
I own a shotgun, 22lr, 9mm, and an ar15. I go shooting as often as I can and am hoping to get some reloading equipment for Christmas!
My question has to do with panic-buying whenever there is an executive action scare. I'm just a little confused by it. I can totally understand ammunition, powder, primers, etc. because those are expendable items.
Here are my assumptions:
1) New people are realizing the dangers in society and are wanting to learn responsible gun ownership for protection.
2) Gun-lovers who have been saving up for a gun realize prices are about to rise because of Type 1 people so they go out and get it now.
3) You can never have enough guns!
I am still planning on getting a good bolt gun for hunting and target shooting, a revolver because why not, and another pistol for the misses. Then when the future kids are ready, a 22lr bolt for them.
I do have friends that own over 30 guns just for themselves, but I guess I'm just a gun minimalist. I would rather have a big store of ammo, magazines, and supplies. You can only shoot one gun at a time (two for the BAMF's out there).
For those who have a little more experience and understanding in life (I'm still a young buck), could you shed some light for me on this? I would greatly appreciate it. Are my assumptions right? Are there more cases?
And for those who are Type 3 people, how did you convince your wives to let you get another gun every time there's a gun scare? That would be a very nice ability to have! Haha
PS- to those who do not agree with my lifestyle or my beliefs, I ask you to disregard this thread and have a lovely day.
