Fact is, every new push for gun control has resulted in firearms buying sprees where tens of thousands of additional guns are put into people's hands.
What's made the AR-15 such a big seller in recent years? The fact that gun control activists have been so adamant about the "need" to ban them.
I wonder if these activists have any idea show much cheaper ARs have become in recent years.
Typically, ARs used to start at around $800. Now, because of economies of scale in manufacturing, and increased competition among makers, they typically start at around $500 now, and sometimes can be found for less.
ARs used to be one of the pricier choices on the racks at gun stores. Now they're among the least expensive. And gun control activism has played a big part in pushing the trend.
