I agree 100%. Gun control on the national level is dead and buried. And even if it ever happened, the government would be no more successful in confiscating all the guns than they have been in stopping illegal drugs.I thought it was interesting that the police & military only dealers were cleaned out almost as fast as the regular gun stores. I had a buddy (fellow Army CPT) that drove 4 hours to an LE\MIL gun store to buy 3 LWRC rifles at over $2k a pop during the panic. I mean, the price was normal for LWRC, but the guy already owns over 100 assault rifles (pretty much every cool thing you could think of, converted G36, Tavor, AUG, MSAR, etc.)
My dad's in the same camp, constantly buying more and more guns and ammunition that he never shoots.
I just see the panics as money making opportunities, because I know there's no chance of national gun control passing anytime soon. I had some schmuck writing me checks out of his retirement account a year ago.
These are mostly the same suckers who were buying up tons of gold at $1700.
