Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammu-Nation

The nation's largest semi-automatic rifle dealer (that would be your local Wal-Mart, by the way) is instituting a national limit on ammunition to three boxes a day as paranoia over "Obama's gun grab" ramps up towards a fever pitch.

"In order to take care of as many customers as possible, starting Thursday, January 24, all ammunition sales were limited to three boxes per customer, per day as supply is limited at this time," Wal-Mart spokeswoman Ashley Hardie Read said.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is the world's largest retailer and the United States' largest gun seller, a position that comes with a lot of responsibility. In the past, the company has said it tries to provide firearms and accessories in a responsible manner without interfering on the customers' right to own firearms, Christian Post reported.

According to data from the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, nine of the top 10 days for firearms checks in the U.S. from Nov. 30, 1998 to Jan. 27 2013, occurred since the shooting at Newtown Elementary School, Dispatch noted. 

In other words, gun and ammo sales are at record highs since Newtown.  As I said earlier today, Wayne LaPierre and the NRA know exactly what they are doing.  Gun makers are suffering shortages in firearms and now ammunition because they believe armed fascist government agents are going to come and take their guns from them, and by God they will water that Tree Of Liberty if they have to.  The reality of that is nowhere near that, but the NRA isn't going to do a thing to moderate its rhetoric when the NRA's job is to lobby for the gun industry, and the gun industry has never had better sales.

At some point we're going to have something like Ruby Ridge on our hands.
