Because America is full of stupid bastards.
Yes, sadly they walk amongst the rest of us here!
With all the talk of gun bans, people are buying them at prodigious rates, exceeding the supply for the moment.
Cuz here in the US we have to many delusional rightwingnutjobs such as. lostinPENNSYLVANIA Who live in a bubble watch to much Faux News, vote for budget cuts to medical care which also cuts most in the mental health care areas!
I would think everyone that is a LAW ABIDING CITIZEN WHO WOULDN'T SHOOT ANYONE FOR SPORT IN THE FIRST PLACE shouldn't have any restrictions on the type of gun including full auto. The criminals that want them have them anyway. The government has them and wouldnt have any problem using them against you if they felt justified or maybe they just didnt like the color of your shirt. Why shouldn't I be able to have them too. I am not going to run out and shoot anyone any faster because it is fully auto vs a shotgun or a handgun. But you can bet the politicians will use it to ban them. Also what is assault about an ar15? It is just like any other semi auto rifle. Just about as long as a bolt action rifle. Let me guess because the miltary saw fit to use them? They use mainly an m4 now which is smaller than an ar. All these extra laws and bans only cost us more tax dollars to enforce. Teach gun safety starting in middle school and let every law abiding citizen carry concealed.
there won't be any bullets on the shelves soon either. do the math.... free land my a$$,,,
That is business. There is a fear and guns and money are changing hands.
I'd imagine it's just the opposite, that more people than ever are stocking up on more weapons than ever, that's been the general "trend" in the U.S. for decades, I see no end in sight.
It hasn't. LOTS of people have a gun. They say whatever they can to make people feel safe.
People that have access to media.
