Who is stocking up on reloading components?

If the Kenyan is re-elected or if Mitt Romney gets elected, I can see tighter gun control laws in our future. The Kenyan has told Sarah Brady he will get with the gun control program in term TWO.

Mitt Romney did two terms as governor of the Peoples Republik of Massachusetts. He signed the state assault weapons ban during his tenure and he has refused to answer a Second Amendment Foundation inquiry on his stand on the 2nd Amendment. In Massachusetts, one MUST have a Firearms Identity Card to possess firearms in the home and to buy ammunition. One MUST get a license from the local fire chief to buy and possess reloading powder in the home. A newsman asked Mitt Romney why he did not relax the draconian Masssachusetts gun control laws during his tenure as governor. Romney said, "I did not rescind Mass gun control laws BECAUSE they are working!"

Romney should have looked at neighboring states of NH and Vermont with less stringent gun control laws harassing honest citizens, and WITH MUCH LOWER crime rates! Romney is not an advocate of the Bill of Rights.

My advice is to stock up and circle the wagons.

I'm stocked up. Yes Mass gun laws are beyond however understand that Mitt was a GOP govoner in a 98% Demorat legistature. His policy aint't good but it ain't all his fault. Up until a few years ago whatever Kennedy wanted he got on a state level. Personally I would rather another canidate but he cannot be worse than Nobama. I do not see him getting booted. We are stuck in socialism for another 5 years.

Some of us have been stocking up

I recall the primer crunch of the 1990s. At that point, I started a regular stocking pattern of adding powder, primers and bullets to my stash. Just a can or box was added every month. At this point, I am in great shape.

Even if Romney wins, he will likely have a Republican controlled House or Senate or both. One or both of which will act a check on any radical gun control proposals. It is important to get everyone out to vote in like-mined candidates. Take care...
Joe

The real critical thing that we must do in the coming general election is to make very sure we all vote and more importantly that we work to help generate votes for the candidates that will ensure the continuation of those ideals we hold to be absolute, like the 2nd.

It is not going to be enough to talk, you will need to help by doing and funding. I have a stock of materials like you, but if reloading is outlawed through some BS executive order using the ATF's pseudo law making ability it could get bad very fast. Just watch the: "People are demanding" HS that the libertoids like to throw out to see if it sticks to the wall.

You see what happened with multiple sales in the border states, the ATF did the illegal deed, got and are getting people killed, then demanded a new set of regulations to protect the people from the people, not the ATF, and the totally bogus regulation is then backed up by a nimrod judge. Justice went out the window with this "three cents in change" administration.

Now that Perry has dropped out, the only real gun supporter left is Ron Paul and the MSM has made amn sure he'll never ever get the nomination, After all, he supports the Constitution.
I'm sorely afraid it's gonna be BOHICA regardles of who gets in.

Thumbs up

Well, as pretty much expected, the First Illegal ALien is back in for another ruinous four years. Yes, I learned my lesson during the runup to the first failed 'election', the "2008 Immaculate Deception" - I saw the prices ging up and availability of ammo going down, and stocked up on components, and gst the turrets and dies to load everything I shoot but rimfire - seventeen calibers at this time - soon to add another when I get a .270WSM rifle from a hunting buddy. Lucky I did, else I wouldn't have been shooting in 2008 to 2010. Took that long for stocks and supplies to get back to 'normal' though prices have stayed ridiculous.....
The Brady Bunch would be shocked if they knew how much ammo and components I have stocked away - I will not go through a shortage again!

Well I had to revisit this thread.. Been a couple or so months now of all these shortages. Primers are nowhere to be found..powder pretty much the same..and when it does show up..holy crapo. It gets scarfed in a hurry. Same with 22 rimfire. Ya know the last time this happened it took a little while but things did get back to normal...except for prices. They of course stayed HIGH. What do y'all think is gonna happen this time?? The Homeland Security Gestapo is buying 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammo..7000 M-16 Personal protection weapons(that's what they are calling them)..but ours are Assault weapons and 2700 assault bombproof vehicles. At the height of the middle east war the whole contingent of US troops fired 100 MILLION rounds of small arms ammo in one YEAR. all 100 thousand or so troops..and Homeland Security..all 45,000 of them(which includes janitors etc etc) NEED 1.6 BILLION rounds?? and M-16s and assault vehicles. WHO in the hell are they gonna use them on?? I don't see half a billion screaming Chinese at the western shore..or a whole buncha Russkys at the eastern coast..and the Canadians aren't invading yet. Neither is the Mexican military..so that only leaves one group of people for them to use these weapons on.. Soooo it seems that only leaves...The American citizens. PLEASE tell me I am wrong!!
So tell me. Do you see the supplies of ammo and reloading gear getting better anytime soon. Unhappily I do not..but I still hope

Skeet,
I know you are delusional because the military used 1.7 billion rounds in 10 years of war not just two wars, but several "brush wars" plus Afganastan and Iraq.

There are actually 200,000 or so that now work for DHS, including the Secret Service, Border Patrol and the Coast Guard, but FEMA is the gorilla in the closet, you need to read their capability in an "emergency." They are the ones no one paid attention to, and in the guise of powers needed due to a natural disaster, they have very wide and very invasive powers by just declaring an emergency. If those powers are used against the people rather than to help the people, there is really no checking them. I have watched these folks in action after several emergencies were declared and it is not hard at all to see them or them being directed to abuse.

Yep, there are several elected legislators asking the very same question and yesterday in response to an information demand letter (they have 30 days to respond by law) old Janet simply said the request was not for 1.6 billion rounds, it was for "up to 1.6 billion" and the clowns just bit off on that, like it was a real answer to "why."

You keep asking why bud. DHS is the 3rd largest budget/employer in the US Government.
Ed
