How many times have you heard the gun control crowd insist that the nation's current surge of consumer ammo buying is it the work of paranoid gun nuts fretting over non-existent threats?\
Just last week, Salon.com fretted how "gun owners terrified of nonexistent plans to restrict ammo are hoarding bullets."
Yet in the mainstream media today, there's stuff like this:
Democratic lawmakers are pushing like never before to regulate or tax ammunition sales. They say the logic is simple: A firearm is nothing but an expensive paperweight without ammunition.And soon, in Connecticut, you'll apparently need a state-issued eligibility certificate to buy ammo.
Begs the question: Are ammo shelves empty because of paranoid panic buying, or is it prudent acquisition before government restricts supply?
