Wondering if the paranoia is coming down or if this is just market saturation. Judging by RWNJ rhetoric that is as high as ever.

pretty much any and all gun fetishists now have a stockpile of 15 to 20 AR-15 variants piled up on the bed with no revolution to use them in, no feds busting down the door, and not able to afford any ammo.

I have no idea what the used market is like but I expect prices for these penis-substitutes to come crashing down. The danger is the same sort of nutcase mindset that traffics in mass paranoia and antisocial behavior like this also can cross over into bank heists. I expect a rash of bank heists from these far right loons.

Potential buyers from outside the paranoid nut culture know they cannot get ammunition so there is no point in getting the guns.
Sales of .22 rifles, always a staple for manufacturers and retailers, have collapsed completely, since the ammunition is both expensive and hard to find. This largely defeats most of the purpose of these guns.
Ammunition hoarding is driven by paranoia and it is therefore paranoia that has killed gun sales.

I’m just hoping that things will chill out until the Democrats win the presidency in 2016 so that I can slowly stock enough reloading supplies to get past the freakout that will ensue after President Gilibrand’s inauguration ;)

Not to mention bringing down the price of used non-AR Fudd guns that I prefer :LOL:

Long guns and all ammo are readily available at our flea market again. The favored type has reverted back to hunting rifles and shotguns. The prepper stand, the guy who sold PVC pipe cacheing kits, has closed.

“Dey’re gonna tak r gunz” just doesn’t have the same cache, I guess. Even the most in-bred, camo-clothed warrior wannabe, children’s-park-open-carry-ak47-totin’ methhead must realize, in his few clear-headed moments each day, that it just ain’t gonna happen. Its not going to stop the NRA however from screaming about it. They’ve still got membership dues to collect and debts to firearms manufacturers to repay.

Obama and Homeland Security has boughten all the gunz and ammo!!!

Another possible scenario is that the gun fetishists are now dead broke from stockpiling weapons, ammo, and magazines.

No matter how nutty gun nuts get, sooner or later we’re gonna reach market saturation.

re: #9 Eigth Immortal

The market is saturated-crime has gone down as the population has gotten mostly past the age of violent crime. And with about 200 million guns, just about everyone who wants a gun can get one readily. And with crime, violent crime, dropping, there’s little real demand for new ones.

And with the saturation, those who use guns for that reason can get them cheaper used than new. Put that together with the immense durability of guns, and you have a very slow market.

11 CarolJ  May 21, 2014 4:35:22pm

That’s why I think the gun people have been becoming more and more radical: the universe of gun enthusiasts is probably shrinking, and the ammo is stockpiling, and the reasons for needing a gun are diminishing.

What’s a gunnie to do?

12 aagcobb  May 21, 2014 6:31:36pm

The gun industry desperately needs the 22nd Amendment to be repealed so that the President can run for a third term and they can scream “he really is coming for your guns this time!”

I’m surprised this isn’t already happening, especially considering the entitlement mentality and “God is on my side” so anything I do is righteous belief many have. In the 60s and 70s, Left-wing loony “revolutionaries” did their fair share of it.
