No matter how many times the pouty Open Carry zealots lose a battle or make the gun-owning public look bad, they never seem to connect the dots between their stubborn attention-whoring behavior and the clear negative consequences that they cause.
Did they learn after they pushed Starbucks into the arms of the gun control lobby?
No, they did not:
“Chipotle is asking customers not to bring firearms into its stores after it says gun rights advocates brought military-style assault rifles into one of its restaurants in Texas.”
Way to go, idiots.
Now, I cannot seem to locate my Magic 8-Ball, but I will go out on a limb and make a prediction anyway: this clear and uniformly negative result from their behavior will not stop Open Carry Zealots from being idiots yet again and playing into the hands of the Brady Bunch.
It’s almost like they are doing it on purpose. Maybe they need to be investigated to see if they are taking money from Bloomberg to act this way. It’s hard to believe that a rational human being could screw up so often and not realize that they are screwing up.
I have read a lot of articles about the ammo shortage. Some on the internet, some in glossy gun magazines. Lots of people claim to be able to explain the situation, but no one seems to be able to point to any proof that they are right.
2 weekends back I went to a major dealer in CT to see what ammo they had.
Pallets, literally, of .40S&W, .45acp, .223 and .380. Enough hunting ammo to keep people’s rifles sighted in. A little .38. A single countertop display of match .22 for $12.99/50 rounds. And no 9mm at all.
I personally bought a Ruger SR22 many months ago to address the lack of 9mm, but now there is no .22 to be had! My .40 and .45 guns are getting more frequent workouts because I can replace any ammo I use in them.
If all you have are 9mm and .22 caliber guns, you’re pretty much out of luck. At what point do you step up and buy a new gun in a caliber that you can feed?
