This was the only time my degree in Political Science ever helped me. Early in the campaign it became obvious to me that the Repubs. couldn't find their butt with either hand, and while they nominated Romney they actually hated him. And it's very difficult to beat a sitting President. Jimmy Carter does not count, so I bought enough ammo, mags, and another AR before the elecction and way before the trajedy in CT. Now I just watch and wait. In about 9 monthes to a year, there will be a lot of buyers remorse and cheap ARs and Minis to be had. Patience is the key and put aside some cash.
