Good post, OP. Thanks for the info.

Of course, that's what they want...civil unrest.
 Quoting: rainlover


The scary part of this is, there are a lot of inexperienced people purchasing firearms. Inexperienced or with no experience. Many of us older people grew up with guns and have lived in rural environments. Using a firearm properly is second nature for many of us. This is not so for newbies who are scared and purchasing their first sidearm or long gun. Firearms in the hands of untrained beginners is what I consider dangerous.

Just my personal opinion. Comments?

 Quoting: Nikola Tesla


This was on my mind as well. I've been around guns most of my life & I'm FAR more concerned about the urban areas than the rural ones, that's for sure. I wonder how many of those that bought guns bothered to by a complete, caliber appropriate, cleaning kit...

If you think this ammo shortage is a joke or lie, simply call your local shooting range. Mine is not selling ammo except hallow points to be taken from the store. They said they are having supply problems and have limited supply to be used only at the range. I've been stocking up at Walmart for a while now smartly

It's pathetic that you can't put together the least intellectual argument. The heck with you. I tried to give you the benefit of a doubt. I bet you have never read the Constitution or the Bill of Rights, nor understand them.

You probably haven't read a history book either.

I'm not arguing the constitution or bill of rights and I didn't give my stance on the gun control. I know how badly you want your doom but i'm sorry to say this isn't it. Make your own doom if you need it so bad.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29746178


Nope. Scratch. Your claim is entirely without merit. I posted replies to your assertions about "demons". You need to scroll back or actually read instead of a diatribe on One World Government because that has absolutely nothing to do with guns in a gun store.

If you don't understand Natural Right, the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, what any of those words mean I used, what the issues are, the legalities, the role of a constiutional republic, the difference in a system with Checks and Balances, the role of the Legislative versus the Executive versus the Judiciary, you cannot possibly debate gun control.

That's insane, foolish, asinine to image you can toss a goofy naive idea and then expect anyone to take you serious.

Even if it were pertinent, you'd have to illustrate how that would be superior. As a matter of fact, such a thing would be illegal and revolutionary, so basically you're talking about Treason.

You won't get any respect unless you learn how to debate.

You can't even punctuate a sentence.

And still you have posed one shred of evidence that your illegal treasonous ideas would be palatable or justifiable or even better than our form of government.

Grow up.
 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid


Get off my ass about punctuation who gives a shit really. I didn't say one world government would be better than what we have currently, I said it is possibly the best shot at a peaceful world. Your attacks really are pointless.
And what would you classify the gov. as if they sent DHS to load us all up with hollow points? I'd call them evil demons ya.
My point to anyone who might buy into the b.s. spread around, the government is not all evil traders and our current gun situation is not to start a civil war and enslave us.
And as you can see if you have an opinion that doesn't spell doom for all then these people will work as hard as they can to put you down call you a shill and attempt to make you look like you are wrong. I'm sure most don't even realize what they are doing.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29746178





You are a shill.

Absolutely ZERO doubt about it.

Either that, or just a world class imbecile.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1448568

OK, I'll bite. Glad to.

Who called them demons? That's a weak way to debate. It's outright lying of what was posted. Talk about extreme; you're the perpetrator of extreme comments.

Yeah, they galvanized gun-owners and the NRA among others. They definitely are in cahoots with each other. Have you ever seen the membership for the Council on Foreign Relations? Trilateral Commission. It's on both sides of the political spectrum.

Are you seriously telling me that the media except for Fox News (and I'm not a fan) is not liberal? Are you stupid or just obtuse? That's well established. It's a no-brainer.

They will never ever quietly take our guns and ammo. It's an inherrent(given at birth) inalienable (can't be removed) natural right of a constituional republic. You did actually graduate from High School or College, right? You did listen when discussing The American Revolution. You know that The Bill of Rights was made to guarantee those rights, and that they can't be legislated away without Amending the Constitution. I bet you can't debate that whatsoever.

One World Government! Are you insane? Why would the American people ever give up their soverignity? Do you know what that word means within the context of a constitutional republic? Are you daft? The People of the USA are soverign, not Obama. The People.

If you're not a shill, you're the lamest weakest excuse for an American citizen that I've ever met.

There are no ideas there that are not entirely circuitous and illogical to boot. There's no evidence of your assertions. There's no meat.

In all honesty, I feel aghast that you're a product of the American educational system. And actually, a bit sorry that you didn't put forth the most rudimentary effort to try.

And peace, who wants peace by accepting the slavery that would result from losing our self-determination? That's the worst aspect of your thesis, not that there actually is one buried with that mud puddle you squirted on the page.

Re: View From Cabaela's & Bass Pro Shop--WOW Getting Real Folks!!!
Today this gun thing got real for me.

I was in PA today and went to BPS and Cabela. I was stunned.

At BPS they were almost totally sold out of ALL handguns. CASES and CASES were totally empty. GONE. They were totally out of 9mm, 357 ammo and just about everything else. I took pictures but since there's people in them I'm not going to post them. Staff says they can't get anything else at this point, their suppliers are out. There was a sizable crowd scanning the empty cases and shelves. Salespeople I talked to said they are convinced that if anyone tries to take weapons from Americans there's going to be a civil war. They said they're seeing people who used to be anti-gun want to get one because they're afraid of what they think is happening.

Later, I stopped at Cabelas. This place is right off the highway and very visible from a distance. The crowd there was even bigger. They still had a few --very few--handguns but nothing left that was a carry piece, imo. I'm sure they were depleted of the little they had by the end of the day. As for ammo, they were limiting to 10 box max. There was almost nothing left.

i'm finding it hard to convey how real all seems to be becoming.

No, it's not "hundreds of thousands of rounds of hollow points" that the DHS has purchased... no... IT IS 1.7 BILLION ROUNDS of hollow points purchased by DHS (in violation of the Geneva Convention to use on the battlefield, btw). The sons-a-bitches are looking to put 5 rounds or more in every man, woman, and child in the United States of America. Shameful...

Safely use your weapons talk is crap.

No one will be touching them (other than practice) until the time comes.

Oh, this panic buying is going to breed a bunch of irresponsible gun owners has to end.
That is the tactic they are using.

The 2nd amendment does not state that we must be proficient with a weapon, only that we have the right to it.

People should know how to use a firearm. Truth is, most people would only use them at point blank range.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1589374


When the 2nd refers to "well regulated militia necessary to ensure the security...", the term "regulated" means more than just managed, but also that "well regulated" would also mean familiar, trained, and skilled as it applies to "militia".

I was at Cabela's in Hamburg in the middle of December. I went intentionally to buy a .22cal. AR type weapon that I had my eye on specifically and I had credit dollars from the card plus their employee discount that they offer to regular customers once per year between just before Christmas and New Year.
When I arrived I was almost number 500 in the gun department. They were up to 3 hundred something. I waited 2 hours to be handled by a clerk, I moved as quickly as possible, getting the gun and telling the clerk to box it sight unseen. I then had to go to the background check area and work on a computer filling in information. Another clerk came out in a reasonable amount of time,and I signed a few papers. It was then another 3 hours of waiting for me to get approved because of the backlog and it is true that they have increased the size of their background check unit! Well, I spent the time talking with "bitter Pennsylvanians clinging to Guns and God" as Obama said, and most of them are not from any big city.
A lot of them believe that civil war is coming and they are hunkered down for a long fight.Don't think that Americans won't use their weapons. There will be no taking away from these folks.
Maybe in a liberal city like Philadelphia people who don't know their rights will be trampled on but up there in Hamburg you are going to suffer.
Also was able to buy over 500 rounds of ammo very easily last week at a typical suburban Dick's sporting goods store.
These people are sane, not gun nuts, but used to roughing it. God help us if Big Daddy goes after our guns.

Nope. Scratch. Your claim is entirely without merit. I posted replies to your assertions about "demons". You need to scroll back or actually read instead of a diatribe on One World Government because that has absolutely nothing to do with guns in a gun store.

If you don't understand Natural Right, the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, what any of those words mean I used, what the issues are, the legalities, the role of a constiutional republic, the difference in a system with Checks and Balances, the role of the Legislative versus the Executive versus the Judiciary, you cannot possibly debate gun control.

That's insane, foolish, asinine to image you can toss a goofy naive idea and then expect anyone to take you serious.

Even if it were pertinent, you'd have to illustrate how that would be superior. As a matter of fact, such a thing would be illegal and revolutionary, so basically you're talking about Treason.

You won't get any respect unless you learn how to debate.

You can't even punctuate a sentence.

And still you have posed one shred of evidence that your illegal treasonous ideas would be palatable or justifiable or even better than our form of government.

Grow up.
 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid


Get off my ass about punctuation who gives a shit really. I didn't say one world government would be better than what we have currently, I said it is possibly the best shot at a peaceful world. Your attacks really are pointless.
And what would you classify the gov. as if they sent DHS to load us all up with hollow points? I'd call them evil demons ya.
My point to anyone who might buy into the b.s. spread around, the government is not all evil traders and our current gun situation is not to start a civil war and enslave us.
And as you can see if you have an opinion that doesn't spell doom for all then these people will work as hard as they can to put you down call you a shill and attempt to make you look like you are wrong. I'm sure most don't even realize what they are doing.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29746178

You really never learned how to write a sentence, so naturally you're incapable of a written debate. You can't put together a coherent idea, so it's impossible to debate you.

There are no idea there that isn't entirely circuitous and illogical to boot. There's no evidence of your assertions. There's no meat.
 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid


I'd say you're the perfect example for a shill. Trying to pick at little things and take away from the point. Oh no you didn't use an apostrophe! SHILL!! blah blah that's all you do. Attempting to misinform people and cause fear is your agenda whether you know it or not is the problem.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29746178

Well actually, I correct my mistakes unlike you AC who can't be bothered. Oh yeah, you can't because you won't get an account.

Now see, if you understood debate, you wouldn't say a statement without showing clear evidence of it occurring within the body of my posts. As such, you're a little boy watching a card game of grownups.

If you understood debate, the process of intellectual discourse is to pick away at the thesis, statements, evidence, and conclusion and counter every argument from the opponent. But being a brat, you can't be bothered to learn what a debate is.

And still you have put forth zero ideas which demonstrate not only the topic at hand, but also any assertions you made.

Stick to something simple like learning how to turn on the cold water in your shower. A good dousing may wash away that nonsensical attitude and awaken you from your slumber.

Re: View From Cabaela's & Bass Pro Shop--WOW Getting Real Folks!!!
Today this gun thing got real for me.

I was in PA today and went to BPS and Cabela. I was stunned.

At BPS they were almost totally sold out of ALL handguns. CASES and CASES were totally empty. GONE. They were totally out of 9mm, 357 ammo and just about everything else. I took pictures but since there's people in them I'm not going to post them. Staff says they can't get anything else at this point, their suppliers are out. There was a sizable crowd scanning the empty cases and shelves. Salespeople I talked to said they are convinced that if anyone tries to take weapons from Americans there's going to be a civil war. They said they're seeing people who used to be anti-gun want to get one because they're afraid of what they think is happening.

Later, I stopped at Cabelas. This place is right off the highway and very visible from a distance. The crowd there was even bigger. They still had a few --very few--handguns but nothing left that was a carry piece, imo. I'm sure they were depleted of the little they had by the end of the day. As for ammo, they were limiting to 10 box max. There was almost nothing left.

i'm finding it hard to convey how real all seems to be becoming.

That's usually the most expensive way to buy prepper food. Why not buy an inexpensive stackable dehydrator, and then buy frozen food on sale, and dehydrate it?

See my sig for an explanation how to do it. It's probably the cheapest way.
 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid


I've got a nice, 9-tray high quality dehydrator, along with a lot of bulk grains (plus hand-operated grain mill), do canning, etc. etc. I'm quite a bit ahead of the curve that way.

BUT. It never hurts to look at alternatives, and if it really is "cheap" from my perspective, it can't hurt to add some of it to my preps & stores.

My dad told me he went to town today, and was set back by the way people were talking. They are no longer mumbling to their friends, or talking about what if's, he said everyone he ran into is blatant, as blatant as the guy who made the video the other day.

He said it was very disturbing that people are that blunt now.

This is the most tense this nation has every been since I've been alive. I've never seen so much distrust, anger, and willingness to lay it all on the line, I think they realize they will lose everything if they do, or don't do anything, and would rather go out with a fight.

No, you made no point. You made a subjective observation. A point would put forth an idea, hopefully an original one and supported by evidence. One could clearly make them about gun control.

Not that it would be relevant coming from an Aussie, because we're discussing American domestic policy that's unconstitutional, not Australian domestic policy. Of what possible difference could your observations make?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28870983


Yeah, Abi - see if you can find out what food he has with a 40 year storage life. Specifically, what has 1 year storage once opened?

The food we carry (WISE) is individual or dual meal packets sealed in nitrogen-flushed mylar bags, then sealed inside of plastic containers. This means you only open what you are ready to prepare. These foods have a 25 year storage life, and quite honestly that rating is for taste - it would still possess nutritional value beyond that point.

I'm hard-pressed to swallow (pun intended) a food product that would be good for 1 year after opened - not that is even realistic or worth dealing with logistically.
