Guns, But No Ammo

For weeks news has been leaking out that Obama intended to limit civilians’ “clinging to their guns” by making ammunition expensive. Now Commentary Magazine explains how it’s going to work. The new regulations will eliminate the common practice of selling spent casings from military bullets to private companies that used the casing to make bullets for police departments and private citizens. The government will lose 80% of income they have been receiving from selling the casings and the cost of ammunition on the civilian market will skyrocket. So, not only will hunters and sportsmen hardly be able to afford ammunition, but neither will your local police department. Plus, the department of Defense will require more tax money to stay at the same level of preparedness. In other words, everyone loses, but the gun control freaks will get to feel self-righteous.
