Most of what most have said here is true, mostly. However, it is still true that there is no "free" in a free market. Someone pays something. The last things that will happen is rationing and price controls for guns and ammunition. Which reminds me: what happened with such things during WW II?
It's hard to imagine but there were times when demand plummeted. Skeeter Skelton said that during the depression, stores would sell ammunition by the round but cause folks probably couldn't manage the price of a whole box. Ah, yes. The good old days.
I still believing in patronizing the local gun shop but frankly, it's a little harder when there are more than one to pick from. But I'm not such a good customer anymore since I've pretty much given up all things gun. Money shortage, you know.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
Buy War Bonds.
