USA Today... as usual a few weeks late to the story.... has noticed that arms and ammo sales have 'picked up' a bit.
One thing I can say without reservation... the fervor with which people are arming themselves is something unprecedented in my lifetime, I believe. Sure, we have had runs on gear, and occasional price wackiness after some politician does something ignorant.... but this time seems very, very different.
I will refrain from using the phrasing that comes to mind most easily, as I would consider it inflammatory. Throwing gas on this fire is not a wise action, I think.
