Storing Nuts

Ammo manufacturers can’t keep up with the demand for bullets.

Shooting ranges, gun dealers and bullet manufacturers say they have never seen such shortages. Bullets, especially for handguns, have been scarce for months because gun enthusiasts are stocking up on ammo, in part because they fear President Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass antigun legislation — even though nothing specific has been proposed.

If Congress can’t even pass a reasonable healthcare bill yet, I really don’t think they’re going to get around to doing anything about guns. I have the sneaking suspicion that the folks who own stock in Remington are fanning this because they know that no one ever went broke underestimating the fear and paranoia of the American public.

Meanwhile, I’m stocking up on nanoprobes just in case we get invaded by the Borg.
