Or is it just because Obama got reelected and it's the holiday gift buying season that people are panic buying like I am? If so, when can people expect for the stocks to refill?
many gun owners really detest the term, "assault rifle" as it's a term conjured up by the gun hating media and politicians to paint certain looking types of firearms in a bad light. they would rather people believe the firearms are at fault and not the idiot or mentally deranged individual using it for violent purposes. so therefor they make them appear to be evil and bad. myself, i refer to my Bushmaster M4A2 Carbine as an AR platformed semi-auto rifle.
in light of these current tragic and senseless shootings that have occured over the last several months, many people are panic buying and this in turn does two things, depletes current inventories and drives prices up, because of the fears of another AWB like we had several years ago.
