I got up and read my email this morning. It said the ammo was in short supply in this country. CNN had the report. Can you imagine such a thing? This ammo shortage is a good six months old and CNN is getting around to reporting it? Heaven help us! The next thing you know they will say it is a shining star in the mud of the economy. We bought one and a half billion rounds of ammo in December of 2008 and CNN never said a damn thing. Since then January, February, March and April have gone by and still not much ammo. I'll tell you a little something, CNN, there are billions of rounds of ammo in this country. Reality is when you stop believing in something, it still does not go away. No matter what the left wing agenda is in this country. We CITIZENS have access to all kinds of ammo. BATHTUBS FULL OF AMMO. And the ammo makers are gearing up to make even more of it. Plants are running 24 X 7. Manufacturing expansion is taking place. We know crime is going to go up. We suspect Martial Law is going into effect. We positively look forward to foreign troops on our soil telling us what to do. You corrupt media bastards don't understand! We are tired of your shit and so now, let's get it on! We know what is coming! Our favorite trend watchers are people like Mr. Roubini and Mr. Celente. Mr. Bonner chimes in with a word of encouragement every now and then. It would appear that we are being attacked by ravenous Fascist Pigs and it is sink or swim time. Methinks the Pigs need to sink and us good folks swim to safety.
The guns supply got a little better recently. In fact, there are guns practically everywhere you look to buy them. The prices are not reported to be going down but the supply is strengthening. And it is good that the gun thing is catching up with itself. We have other things to acquire besides guns and ammo. We also count value in Beans and Band-aids.
The State of Montana has passed and signed into law a statute that says any gun made in Montana and sold with the intention of not leaving Montana does not have to conform to any federal firearms laws. This is a push, because the commerce clause of the constitution says there ain't any regulation of anything that does not cross the state boundaries, at least by federal law with permission of the constitution. About 5 or 6 years ago the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals out of San Francisco ruled in this very manner but it got no publicity. Some guy was making a machine gun out at his house in the dessert of Arizona and the BATFE got wind of it and busted him. The appeal of his conviction was mostly overturned because the fedgov had failed to prove the man was going to engage in Interstate Commerce with the gun and failing that, a lot of the case was thrown out. They got him on some nickel-dime violation and he got a few years but nothing like they were trying for.
But if Montana can manufacture guns with MADE IN MONTANA stamped on the receiver, then a citizen of Montana can buy one of those guns and not fill out any federal paperwork. Happy days will be here again. Texas will probably be next to enact such a thing and Indiana will fall in line soon enough. Man! Just think. I could own a gun that didn't have the federal government breathing down my neck all the time. I wonder if that would apply to beer and wine and hard liquor. Sure would be nice to get the government out of my beer cooler! Tobacco products could use a little relief also. In fact, a lot of things could use a little less attention from the fedgov. Hell, this move by Montana could be the start of things getting back to the way they're supposed to be in this country. I know. Fat chance. But allow me to have my little dash of escapism once in a while. Stay alive.
