Shok I am an extreme liberal. They are not talking about liberals they are talking about anti gunners. Which are conservative as often as liberal.
I think its pretty far from normal but I think maybe the worst of the panic buying is over. Maybe things were not as bad around here but we still have places with AR15s at around msrp and lots of other things in stock at local retailers. I would never pay msrp personally but to each his own. Ammo supplies have been iffy but I was at scheels in waterloo and they had hundreds of pounds of powder 19-22$ ish wide variety as well. I'm not sure there was any ammo sold out other then 223, the other common stuff was in stock.
I could be wrong but I think obama is pushing this so hard so he can use it for a horse trade on things he really cares about. Time will tell I guess
