Default LGS sign

so i went into my LGS and upon walking in they had a sign that read. if you see a gun or ammo you like BUY it.. weapon and ammo shortages are expected in 2012. so is this a marketing ploy? or is there some info floating around about a shortage?

I've been thinking about that subject also. I would expect that if it looks likely that obama is going to get reelected there will be a g&a crunch.

Also, this is worth thinking about.

Remember 2008-2009?...ammo and handguns were both in short supply over fears of an Obama presidency. Same thing this year, NICS checks are already running 25-35% ahead of last year. Not a bad time to stock up on .45ACP and 9mm, both were difficult to locate last time...223/5.56 as well if I recall correctly.

A little of both. Elections bring uncertainties, and that brings a bit of panic. Panicked people want security.

It's not like manufacturers are going to put production on hold or anything. In fact, if they were smart, they'd boost production and prices a bit to make more profit.

Downsouth, god like productions has me as banned for some reason, I figured that would be hard to do considering I've never heard of them much less have ever visited them to piss them off.

And the Soros thing has been debunked as myth many times.

Why would that place ban me though? More importantly, how did they know that they probably should?

I couldn't even see what the site was all about, I clicked the link and it said "you've been banned" or something like that.
