Gee, why hasn’t this received more media attention?
Let’s add it up:
Here we go again.
A 19-year-old gunman fired off an AK-47 in an elementary school in Georgia. No one was injured.
And in other news, 3 savages in Oklahoma shot a young man in the back as he was jogging. The victim died.
The almost total lack of media coverage (and the overly-careful wording of the little coverage that had been published) sent a clear message about the race & culture of the people involved. The eventual publication of pictures of the perpetrators confirmed this suspicion. One perp reportedly danced as he was being booked.
The parents of the perpetrators claim that their little angels couldn’t have done this because they are good little boys. Look at the pictures of the little angels’ twitter feeds and see if that claim is plausible to you. One of them was in court this week to sign papers for his probation status.
The cops are trying to claim that it was a crime of boredom. The savages used a .22 revolver, which none of them could have legally possessed.
And the usual suspects are starting to beat the gun-control drum. It will get louder.
Example: one of CT’s own state legislators wants to ban video games from using realistic weapons in them. Even though he admits there is no evidence connecting video games to violence.
Don’t let them seize the narrative. Write letters to and call your representatives at all levels of government and make your voice heard.
Have a gun. And be aware when you are out in public.
Or else this might happen:
WWII veteran Delbert Belton survived being wounded in action during the Battle of Okinawa only to be beaten and left for dead by two [Afro-American] teens at the Eagles Lodge in Spokane on Wednesday evening.
Up until today, I hadn’t actually seen any price gouging on ammo. Heard about it, read about it, but haven’t seen it.
But today that changed.
Went into a gun store with Crapgame (not going to name the store, but it isn’t one of the 2 notorious gougers in the area) and looked around. On the shelf I saw a 500-round bulk pack of Winchester XPert 22.
I figured it might be a good idea to stock up, since I am shooting more .22 these days.
There was a little sticker in the corner of the box. It said: $70. (I checked MidwayUSA when I got home; their price was $30.99.)
And there was a 525 round box of Federal bulk pack ammo priced at $65.
Neither box included lubrication to ease the pain of the ass-rape being offered to customers.
Now, I am not one of those people that equates price increases with price gouging. I am mostly in the John Stossel camp. Business is business. A vendor needs to be able to make a profit on the products they sell, after factoring in all of the variables. And prices have gone up across the board for ammo, and I accept that reality.
But there is no way in hell that this gun store is making less or the same profit margin on that ammo that they would have made before the sale. They are being opportunistic dicks.
I don’t want a government solution to this problem, like NJ did.
If you see stupid prices on ammo, and you aren’t in desperate need of that ammo, DON’T BUY IT! Let it sit there until the dealer gets sick of staring at it and makes the price more reasonable, or until someone who does need it desperately comes looking for it.
That’s the only way to restore some sanity to the ammo marketplace.
That, and more production.
