Ammunition has been in short supply way longer than what the meida tells us . For about a year and a half I've not been able to find what I wanted sometimes for weeks and if I didn't get it right when I seen it the next day it would be gone.

Looks like we not only need gun control but also ammo control. When these "cowboys" stockpile ammo that they "think they may need someday" to protect themseleves against the tyranny of our government (sarcasm) while law enforcement has problems getting the ammo they need, something is seriously wrong!

What we really need is mouth control. People not having a clue what they are talking about making decisions on what we can and can not do.

Just furthering the story and propoganda. This is nothing new and it helps further the push for more control. When will people wake up?

This adminstration began its anti-gun agenda long before the Newtown tragity. Do a search for " Obama's gun ban list" and you will notice it was published in November, weeks before the shooting in Conn.

Irisheyes, that might be the most disgusting comment i've ever read on here. You are clearly ignorant, misinformed, or both.

It's a reflection of the times in which we live. People have to get past the thinking 'it could never happen to them'/ 'or here'(nutso whacko's could be living up the street or pushing the cart in the next aisle, we don't know). If an intruder is heard moving about in the middle of the night or the light of day(all those daytime break ins happened smack dap in the day light remember), I certainly feel better knowing that the intruder is going to be met with a solid means to stop them in their tracks instead of with me helpless and held up in a closet on the phone waiting and hoping for the authorities to get there.

The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country. Add that the DHS has purchased 1.6 BILLION ammo and sniper rounds. Maybe legal gun owners and our rights under the 2nd Amendment should be the least of our worries.

Then there is this: "Individuals around the US have begun reporting the site of strange, new, heavily-armed FEMA fighting vehicles. What would a disaster relief agency like FEMA need with 2,500 brand new GLS armored fighting vehicles? According to the agency’s own mandate, as well as President Obama’s recent Executive Order, the answer is ‘population control’ during a time of Martial Law. One set of images made available by Rense**** shows trailer after trailer carrying these new DHS and FEMA armored fighting vehicles, complete with machine gun slots. They’re labeled with the usual backward American flag and the title, ‘Homeland Security’. Below that and the DHS logo, it also reads, ‘Immigration & Customs Enforcement’. Joining those markings, the black vehicles with white lettering also display ‘POLICE/RESCUE’ on one side and ‘Special Response Team’ on the other." So, how's that koolaid tasting Obama supporters?

"After the realization that this tragedy would be capitalized on politically, it led people to make purchases they would otherwise not have made or to purchase items sooner," Could not have said it better.

Tessie, did you forget to take your meds with your koolaid? Google it yourself, numerous print sources to choose from to read. Not one of the ones I read came from Fox, CBS, NBS, ABC, CNN or MSNBC News. Or of course you can chose to remain ignorant. As for hearing me 'speak', I don't remember seeing you at any of the debates or Meet the Public events and I don't really remember going on any 'rants' at them. Or you didn't bother to approach me to tell me of your concerns for my mental health. Now I have spoken in front of Council in the past but again, don't think I was taken away for 'ranting' at them by that nice police office who is always there. You must watch the council meetings on TV because again, don't really remember seeing you at the meetings I was at. By the way, how's the dog park thing going? Did we ever find out who would be liable if a dog bit another dog or person? The city or the dog owner?

Slogoin. I wouldn't help them. They would probably hit you over the head with a club cause u have a terrible gun. Now if my life or families safety were in danger, that is different. They can go gut their own protection. Maybe Feinstein, Cuome or Bloomberg, Soro, Piers Morgan would have time to help them.

oneill, if you knew anything at all about history, you would know that the militia was every free, able bodied man. I suggest you take a crash course in the subject. The 2nd amendment was designed to protect the people from a tyranical government. Now if we use your definition of militia, it would completely defeat the entire rational of the 2nd amendment as the government would control the militia.
