The worst part of it all, is we're price gouging and f'ing over our own "people". Meaning, dealers and private sellers are making it damn near impossible for the average person to enjoy, or further enjoy, our right to gun ownership.
You're blaming the wrong people. The "dealer" started the auction at a very reasonable $599. It's the "buyers" that are running up and paying the high prices.
If folks would quit paying high prices then they would come down.
