#1. The antigun President; #2. The anti-gun Congress; #3. Fear Of Loss. Of the three, fear of loss is more responsible than #1. and #2. combined. #1. and #2. were the motivators. Fear spreads like fire in a 60 mile an hour wind. The anti-gun gang in Congress got all goosed-up-tingly thinking they had a champion, which they more than likely do. The shooters and non-shooters see the anti-gun triad of life formed in D.C. and think this is it. I lived in California in the early 70s when a marketing class at U. C. L. A. started a toilet paper shortage. They put out the story that the biggest maker of T.P. had burned down. In one week you couldn't hardly find a roll in L.A. County.

As for gun sales, at this time if a manufacturing facility has anything to do with guns, personal-protection, ammunition or stuff that will go on a Picatinny rail, they are working three shifts. If they can find the skilled staff. Sales forces say they have never seen it like this. They do fear the dry spell that usually follows spikes after any rapid rise in any market. The pipe is filling up.

A side benefit of all the stock piling? One day the owner of the hoard wakes up looks at the stuff that has been just sitting there and decides to take it out to the range. Also the fear of loss drives them to JOIN THE N. R. A.! There's an idea, THE N.R.A. does more for 2nd Amendment understanding than any two gun organizations put together. Join them as well and when you do get involved Give back or there is no future. Think of the children. Where have we heard that before?

E-mail your state and federal governments. Tell them, "Leave My Gun Alone and while your at it, quit spending the money like you had it." They do want to keep their jobs. Members of Congress can suffer from fear of loss just like anyone else. What do you think? Contact me with a thought.

Yours, Jeffrey
