Ammunition Hottest Selling Item at California Gun Show

The liberal progressives in the federal government are doing everything in their power to disarm the American people and to prevent them from buying ammunition. Some states are also following the example of our socialist leaders by trying to pass state laws that ban certain weapons, restrict the purchase of ammunition, require universal gun registration and background checks and restrict private sales or transfer of firearms.

Millions of Americans are deeply concerned by the outright unconstitutionality of these actions. In the past year and a half firearms sales have hit record numbers with hundreds of thousands of American citizens arming themselves in preparation of the coming Second Revolutionary War.

California is one of those states that is run by the Democratic Socialists that support President Barack Obama’s anti-gun, anti-Constitution, and anti-American agenda. That can be seen in the leadership they sent to Washington such as Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Dianne Feinstein. It was Feinstein who introduced sweeping anti-gun laws into the U.S. Senate.

As liberal as California is, there are still thousands of residents of the state that still value their Second Amendment rights to own and bear arms and purchase ammunition. That was evident at this last weekend’s Crossroads of the West gun show held at Cal Expo in Sacramento.

With ammunition supplies dwindling in many gun stores throughout the state, thousands of people began to line up early outside the gun show, many for the sole purpose of buying ammunition. One attendee said that he had arrived at 5:45 AM and was still 64th in line. It took him 3 ½ hours to be able to get into the show and purchase his ammunition.

Galen Miller, who attended the gun show, told a local news reporter:

“I was planning on buying some ammunition around here but the line actually wrapped around the building. When they talk about all the stuff going on and the bans, I think to myself, I need to get some ammo now before it’s gone.”

Tyler, another attendee who was interviewed outside the gun show said:

“They’re just trying to ban it because of mass shootings, but there’s mass stabbings they’re not banning knives you know kind of the same thing.”

Bob Templeton, owner of the gun show, also confirmed that many attendees were there to purchase ammunition, saying:

“What many people are coming for is ammo because there isn’t any available in the traditional channels.”

 

It seems that Crossroads of the West gun shows are going to provide thousands more Californians with the opportunity to purchase firearms and ammunition. When I checked their website I found 21 more gun show dates in various cities throughout California. There are also 22 gun shows scheduled for the rest of the year in Arizona, Nevada and Utah. Hopefully law-abiding citizens concerned about America and our constitutional rights will still be allowed to purchase firearms and ammunition at these upcoming shows.

The more firearms and ammunition in the hands of patriotic Americans will make it all that much harder for Obama and his fellow socialists to take the country over peaceably. When the time comes I pray that millions of Americans will take up their arms and fight against the tyranny of a socialist empire that is bound to destroy us all. A lot of blood will be spilled on America’s streets and in our homes and we can only pray that in the end that tyranny will be defeated in we can once again restore America to her former self.

    I bet more than one good citizen got followed home from this show.

    • Victor Magilke

      I'm sure everyone at the gun show was photographed.

      • catman

        Either that or their license plate number was recorded for future "reference". I havn't been to a gun show in over a year. #1. I don't have that kind of money to buy in quantity. #2. Having worked for and around federal agents/agencies, I know how sneaky they can be and nothing would surprise me.

        • Victor Magilke

          Mostly out of curiosity, I went to hear a speech by David Duke. Everyone was photographed and their auto license number was recorded.
          It turned out to be very entertaining. Duke was charismatic, very intelligent and humorous. And I might add he didn't need a teleprompter. In fact, he never even had a script.

    the saturation plan of welfare to people who are not born in California has worked well. Legal or illegal mot vote dem to get a free check.

    Getting this state back will be a task but if conservatives want a voice in California, they better start working at the local level in the Republican committee office. The local committees run the show

    Why is this administration so intent on disarming America? Very convenient when the Newtown killings happened before Christmas, helping the neo commies with their gun grab. There are too many subtle signs from this corrupt administration which point to 'something bad about to happen in America.'

    • Hotnike

      Did this administration have a hand in the Sandy Hook shooting? I'm sorry, but I won't put anything past this bunch of liars.

      • Michael G.

        Neither would I!

      • http://twitter.com/ZivaKS Kathy Skaggs

        Odd how Sandy Hook happened to childern right before Christmas. I hope that if the goverment had something to do with this to push their agenda that they are punished. If not in this life in the next. I feel bad that I think that our goverment could do something like this but I don't put it past them.

    • Victor Magilke

      You are right Rem. The feds are buying up ammo as fast as the manufactures can produce it. The government, DHS, has enough ammo for a 20 year war. Something bad is inevitable.

      We as Patriots are obligated to defend our country against the Obama tyranny. .

      • Remington 870

        Victor...maybe half of America will defend our country, the other half will be standing in line waiting for their free stuff and when their free stuff runs out, they be coming for our stuff. Make every shot count.

        • Victor Magilke

          I second that Rem. Lock and Load.

        • Michael G.

          To wound only...that draws others of 'em out.
          Check out the movie: "Shooter" They make a very good reference to this approach.

        • Victor Magilke

          Remember what G. Gordon Liddy said, " Shoot them in the groin." He's pretty knowledgeable. I'll take his advice.

        • Conservativesniper

          That's a slow death. Takes a few days to bleed out that way. And with all the perforated tissues, it IS a death sentence.

        • Victor Magilke

          Thanks for the info. The American Patriots better stick together. We will need to be organized.

        • ARMYOF69

          In the stomach..Most painful and demoralizing to others near that target. AND..his buddies will have to carry him out , need an ambulance and other help. Watch most of the attackers run after that shot.

        • Phillip_in_TX

          Excellent movie! I have it on DVD.

      • Phillip_in_TX

        They aren't the only ones buying ammo.

        • Victor Magilke

          Law abiding Americans are buying ammo when they can get it. Right now it is very difficult to get the popular ammo. The DHS is buying it all up.

    • Spyder Dalton

      It's the one world order U.N. mandate coming soon to a theater near you...

      • Phillip_in_TX

        Maybe. Thier E.U. is about to "fall apart." Once the first domino falls (Cyprus) the rest will follow.

  • Breeze13

    I can't wait to get out of Kalifornia. Give it to Mexico or China. I'm going to AZ.

    • Victor Magilke

      I don't blame you Breeze. CA is a beautiful State but who wants to put up with all the Liberals, Violent Radical Blacks and Illegals? Jerry Brown will have their taxes so high it will be impossible for middle class white people to survive.
      I was stationed there twice and have visited CA many times but I don't have any desire to live there.

      • Michael G.

        I had family who lived there many years ago. It was always wonderful to visit there, but today, I don't think I even want to visit any more.

        • Victor Magilke

          I still have relatives living there but because of business reasons they are forced to stay. They love CA but they don't like the residents.

        • ARMYOF69

          DITTO.

      WELCOME Breeze13.

    I'm surprised they had ammo to sell, since you basically can't find it anywhere in stores or online without marvelous luck to be standing there when the shelves are restocked with scattered few items. Last .223 rounds I saw online, ballistic tipped jokers, were nearly $2 per cartridge.
    Even trying to 'roll your own', you can't find any supplies to cast bullets (molds out of stock) primers and powder are spotty and scarce. People know what's coming and are getting ready.

    Prepare while you can.

    We should force a bill that the Feds have to sell all their bullets. That will drop the market price through the floor.

    See The Two Minute Conservative at: http://tinyurl.com/7jgh7wv and when you speak ladies will swoon and liberal gentlemen will weep.

  • Victor Magilke

    It took some gonads to write this commentary. The author is right, I believe a revolution is inevitable. Every state has a shortage of ammo. The feds are buying it up as fast as the manufactures can produce it. The government, DHS, has enough ammo for a 20 year war. Congress needs to stop them from buying more ammo just to stop the law abiding citizens from having any to defend their families. A national government must protect the rights of citizens and of states' rights.

    Walmart says they aren't ordering more ammo, because they can't get it anyway, and have put a RATION of three boxes per person per week on what they have left, which is VERY little. I went to the Gun Store and waited in line to get in. shelves empty, no ammo to speak of, and no handguns or rifles, a FEW shotguns and rounds of Bird shot were left.

    • Phillip_in_TX

      Wal Mart is ordering ammo. Just have to check frequently. Ours had 1 case 9mm (10 boxes), .45 auto, .40 cal, and .44 cal. Now, I did ask the cashier working Sporting Goods if they left all 10 boxes in the case, would that be considered 1 box? She laughed and said no. Can't hurt to ask. The biggest thing is to check frequently. When ammo does come in, it doesn't last very long. The 3 box limit is supposed to be per day; however, there are ways around that.

      I was at Cabela's last week. They got some 9mm, .45 auto, and .40 cal, in. They left it on a rolling cart and didn't even bother to place it on the shelves. They currently limit you to 5 boxes of rifle or pistol ammo. No limit on shotgun shells.

  • catman

    If you have factory ammunition....KEEP IT for combat use. Otherwise, buy brass (or collect it at shooting sights), buy bullets, powder and primers, (even these items are getting hard to find and the cost is going up). Re-load your own for practice useing the least expensive bullets, use jacketed or hollow point bullets for combat. Join a shooting club and learn how to shoot tactically, not just at a paper target that stands still. Learn how to use cover and concealment. Learn how to move and shoot, learn tactical reloading procedures (how to reload your weapon while on the move). These are the things that will keep you alive when that stinky brown stuff hits the rapidly revolving object. It is going to happen if these socialist/communistic idiots in government don't change their ways and I don't see that happening anytime in the future.

  • Red55bird

    If one just set down and listen to the Liberal News Media, you think all gun owners were the scum of the earth, and oh we got to do something about these people. May I have your attention America please. All one has to do is look to what the Government is doing, homeland security 1.6 billion bullits order, and we the tax payer paid for this, also a very large order for long and short guns again the tax payer had to pay for all this. So if Obama can disarm the citizens of America, the only people to have weapons will be the police and the bad guys right. But think about this for a second WHO is the bad guys when all hell brakes out when the market and the dollar bellies up, you guess it Obama army of DHS folks.

  • ARMYOF69

    Time for everyone to learn reloading.
