Ruger Stops Accepting Firearms Orders?
I know. It's been well over a month since my last blog post. But I simply have not had the time or the inclination to post anything new. Very soon I hope to review the new 20 inch AR-15 that I built from Del-Ton components, as well as a couple of other little projects.
With access to a new range coming soon, I will be doing some serious shooting, which I hope will supply me with plenty of writing material.
I was browsing my regular firearms related websites this evening when I ran across this little news story.
"Ruger Stops Accepting Firearms Orders"
Apparently, the run on firearms and ammunition has already begun, even though the election is still months away. I remember the run back in 2008, and it was not pretty.
This time, we may actually have something to really worry about.
We are in the middle of one of the most Anti-Gun, anti-self defense, anti-freedom administrations in the history of the US. If Obama does manage to get re-elected ( which I believe is a very real possiblity) he WILL make a move on firearms. He has been quoted multiple times as saying that he WILL work towards gun control, even if it is under the radar.
Now whether or not this order freeze by Ruger Corp. is legit or simply a ploy to drive up demand, I do not know. But I can tell you now, that months after the 2008 election, ammo and tactical rifles of all makes and model were not to be had in shape or form.
I would suggest to anyone considering a gun purchase to do it now.
