No. Ammo is protected the same as firearms under SCOTUS' interpretation last year in the Heller 2A case.

No, of course not. Gun folk are paranoid and that is the only reason they are buying up everything.

What about banning imported ammo? No more cheap Wolf?

The micro stamping thing might be going into effect as soon as june, i cannot quite figure it out exactly though if it went through or is still being proposed.

So many dealers are out of stock right now and have been for 3 months. . . What gives?

I've been in 3 gun stores in the last 3 days and each one has been well stocked with ammo. Walmart may be out, but ammo is still readily available.

The micro stamping issue is dead in the water. First of all, none of the bills that require it immediately have actually passed. Second, all of the bills that have passed say that it is a good idea and will save the children but will only be required once it is free of patent encumbrances, yadda, yadda. So about twenty years or so.

Dealers are out of stock because 1) Obama has said he wants to reinstate the AWB and 2) people want to be prepared just in case the economy gets so bad that there's social unrest or worse. The store shelves also low on ammo because the military is still consuming ammo at a high rate and the police are building up large stockpiles.

Seriously, why would you spew this garbage without any sort of evidence? Hearing something from someone somewhere does not constitute fact. How did you try to "figure out"? Did you do any searches on the appropriate websites? What did you turn up?

It is this kind of irresponsible propagation of information that is causing a lot of this panic.

Brazil passed a law a few years back limiting ammo to 50rds per year:eek:
Thats enough for me to stock up,its not getting cheaper.

Apparently A LOT of people think it will, since everyone is buying it up like Cabbage Patch dolls in 1985.

a outright ban on all ammo i don't think will happen but without a doubt i think these 2 possibility's can happen.

they already want to move the lead ammo ban for hunting state wide, then why not ban all lead ammo use for target shooting as well to save the environment.

and i'm quite sure the UN and other Anti-gun groups would love to kill importation of ammo or make it so costly to import they just give up on importing the stuff.

The Scenario.......

Step 1 - A dozen or so sporting goods stores are supposedly robbed and cleaned out of ammo.

Step 2 - Guy shoots up a school yard. He's never found, but his car is and it's loaded with thousands of rounds of ammo

Step 3 - In order to "Save the Children", a law is passed requiring all ammo to be registered and a waiting period is added. Sales limited to registered weapons dealers. "We're not BANNING it, just making sure that crazies don't get hold of it".

Step 4 - 2A is "upheld", but really, who needs more than 100 rds per year to defend themselves?

There you go.....it's worked before.

Gotta go adjust my tinfoil hat.

No, but I don't think federal 22 is going to ever get below 13.50 a box that Walmart has it for now so stocking up isn't a bad idea. I do think that othe calibers may come down a little bit though.

Don't absurd.

I was floating the idea that this keeps coming up in things I read and I read one thing that says yes its happening then I read another thing that says no it won't happen.

Go back and re-read that. Now was I making a statement of fact, or was I sounding like i was asking what other people thought.

There was a CA bill that came very close to passing a few years ago. I would have required serial numbers on all new ammo plus forbidden possession of non-serialized ammo outside one's residence.

Agreed Taxing is a bigger near term issue than banning.

So is regulation. Not the banning kind of regulation. The harassment kind of regulations. (In some respects I think all gun regulation is some kind of minor harassment) I am sort of surprised there isn't a 10 day wait period on ammo. One that begins after the 10 day wait for your pistol is over if you are a new buyer.

One signature. Executive order.

Probably using "Home land security" as an excuse.
Republocrats, Domocrans, same team...Government, not the people.

I'm a constitutional conservative. I believe in the ideals of our founders.
Unfortunately all presidents believe that they are to run this country.

Bush took rights away using the war as an excuse, now Obama will do the same.

BINGO! And I bet that same Executive Order will also ban imports such as Saigas and Wassr, etc.

It is better to believe that ammo will be banned and then be surprized when it isn't, than to believe that ammo won't be banned and then be surprized when it is.

Uh, you have stated you are 17 years old, how do you even buy ammo? You might want to keep info like this under your hat so to speak. Just a thought.

One shouldn't worry too much abut Ammo at the federal level. One should be very concerned about importing ammo into the state at the state law level.

We will have to fight and will have a much harder time beating an ammo bill in California.

That bill will never pass. Its a colossal waste of taxpayer dollars for all the paperwork to take on, and in this day and age of the state being bankrupt, there is no way they will pass a bill that would require hiring even MORE employees.

My biggest concern is a repeat of what they did with cigarettes. When the liberals can't address an issue head on, they pass legislation under the guise of funding "education" or "health research". I can just see millions of $ being added to ammo sales to fund social programs aimed at stopping violence in the streets of California. The money would, of course, flow through the pet social programs of Feinstein, Newsom, et al.

We have already seen a lead ammo ban and remember the whole Black Talon ammo. I don't that Black Talons were banned but so much pressure caused production to come to a complete stand still.

I am sure the gun banners will follow Europe's example and ban "military" cartriridges, armor piercing ammo also seems to be their go to crap when they talk about which guns need to be banned.

I was in Reno yesterday & toady. I called 2 stores to ask about 7.62 ammo. One said was totally out, the other said 3 boxes per person. I should ve asked him if he meant 3 per household as well. The price was 6.00 USD for a box of 15 rounds , some russian brand he said.
