something in the air

Anybody out there Google'd "Ammunition Shortage" lately? The topic came up a few days while co-workers were complaining of ammunition for their rifles being unavailable, not in limited supply, but none on the shelves for quite some time now.

One theory is pointing to the current administration for the lack of ammo in this USofA.

One Texas gun shop owner, Johnny Dury, says this ammo shortage "...started the day that Obama got elected. It is when everything just went crazy in the gun business." He says people are buying the guns to protect themselves because they perceive Obama's policies as socialist and rewarding those "people who are not working hard."

"Everybody was scared he was going to take the ammo away or he was going to tax it out of sight on the prices," Dury says. "So people started stocking up, buying half a lifetime to a lifetime supply of ammo all at one time."

What does a "lifetime supply of ammo" entail, and where the hell do you store it? More importantly, when do you decide it's time to use it? I would ask how does one afford a lifetime supply of ammo at one time, but the article reminds us that the people buying it are the types who indeed are hard working, no hidden meaning there.
