Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 04, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with record sales of firearms, has fueled a shortage of ammunition in the United States that's impacting law enforcement agencies, people seeking personal protection, recreational shooters and hunters -- and could deny new gun owners the practice they need to handle their weapons safely.

We'll cause a diversion over here -- cut holes in the wire here, fire on all these machine gun positions. The B-Group comes across this area in a flanking maneuver -- and when you reach this bunker, you lay down grazing fire on this defilade. I think that's pretty simple. Anybody got any questions so far?"

So will spousal and otSo fine... here we go with another aspect of the republcl0wn death cult politics.

Firearms are the prefered method of dealing with an unruly relative... or suicide. They are rarely... I mean rarely used in self-defence.

So for all their mass-murdering find comfort in the fact that twice as many suicides are committed with guns by their stupid owners.

There are people here on the DR who are arguing, right now, that the McCloskey's used them in self defense.

I would have to post evidence of this but I've always read that they soar when a democrat wins the WH and then they cool off once a republican wins.

The fear the democrat is coming after their guns/ammo is what drives that.

As long as they can keep the cowering shivering gun clutching babies scared of [insert fake boogeyman here], they can keep selling guns.

Same tactic the GOP uses to keep getting votes. "Sure we're fascists who got a half million americans killed and tried to end democracy, but if you don't vote for us [your kids will be raped by a trans person in a bathroom and communists will take over the country]

Yeah let me spend my time searching your old posts like you do with mine. Finding a quote, then having you say it doesn't count because you used the word "sides" instead of "parties".

Then when you're finally cornered with no other excuses you lash out with personal attacks.

You are so predictable it's pathetic.

You get called out, get angry, start calling names, then it heads in a sexual direction. It all becomes calling your opponent feminine, talk about dicks and ---, more gay stuff...

Leads me to believe you have problems in the bedroom.

Ammo is gold. I've bought so much ammo and guns over the last 15 years that it's beginning to look like a 10 year return on gold. I literally don't have room for any more, I fact, I'm about to start making .75 on thr $. Yessindeed!

If you can forecast your needs, order online. Depending where you live, of course. I've been doing that a while now, much less irritating than haunting the gun stores looking for ammo. I was going to look at getting back into reloading, but powder and primers seem more scarce than ammo. I'm almost glad I didn't get drawn for a muzzleloader tag this year, I'm having a hell of a time finding powder or pellets.

That's exactly what it is. Same thing happened under President Obama. Couldn't find .22 ammo for 2 years. There's not a shortage. Ammunition manufacturers are turning out more than ever. Demand has skyrocketed due to paranoia that the Dem's are coming for our guns. People are stockpiling. Think of ammo today like toilet paper last March.

This is overall a pretty good article. freerangeamerican.us

Not paranoia as the rise in violent crime over this past year is the main factor driving the recent rise in gun sales, and many of the new new gun owners are women and blacks...

Then again, probably many are are totally unaware of that rise an the 'major media' tries their best to play that down.
