"Price gouger's should be hung by their fingernails"
I have to say that general statement is out of line. Those being "gouged" are the ones who didn't properly prepare when they had an opportunity at normal prices. The buyers have the choice of not buying.
The bigger problem I have with all the "Johnie come latelies" is their overall effect on nearly everything related to firearms-not just semiauto rifles and their ammo.
Yes, I've taken advantage of the situation to market some items at a considerable profit, BUT all those buyers were quite happy to pay the asking price.
