Short answer? Right before Dickhead got himself re-elected.

It's true, he's the best gun salesman in America's history.

And the body count in Chicago is leading the pack.

He must be so proud. Give him a teleprompter, and

he'll tell you why...

A very thoughtful post...... but you have it azz backwards. It is the fear of the President that caused the panic buying. So far, and we are five years in, I haven't seen the President do a damn thing to cause a panic......Now, on the other hand, the NRA has panicked plenty of people into doing silly things, like buying ever round that they can get their hands on an burying it in their back yards.

Place the blame where is belongs.....fear, panic and greed.

I disagree. I know for a fact that shortly after Obama was elected in 2008 homeland security and other federal agencies began buying ammunition in massive amounts. I believe the exact words were "if every agency in this state, local and federal, were to have all their people start shooting now, we couldn't fire this many rounds in a year. That's how much they started bringing in over there. They ran out of space so now they're storing it in semi trailers in the parking lot. They're creating an ammo shortage on purpose."
