    FDIC, Oh-ba-ma, and the guns

    So, what's your thoughts on this recent surge of news on this? I can't help but feel a bit alarmed. Should I go buy that new AR asap?

    Do you think labeling manufacturers and dealers as "high risk" would really deter banks from giving credit to them?

    Of course. But find a better excuse than this fear-mongering garbage.

    Ok, I have lots of excuses I could use

    I hope fear-mongering is all it is. It's easy to get swept-up in the collective paranoia that evolves from the internet these days. With a lack of credible news sources that portray our world as it is and not as it seems (or should seem), it's almost impossible to know what one should value as important.

    Gun sales have slumped tremendously since January. A good round of fresh fear-mongering is needed to stoke the retail fires. But I don't think this one is going to be the one.

    I realize I've been a bit cryptic Adam, so let me explain. Think about how large the gun and ammo industry is. Big. Ok, now consider what they really do to advertise...not big. Ask yourself, what drives sales in this market? Let's say beyond legitimate use consumption. Fear. Yep. Watch what happens to gun sales right around elections and after any shooting tragedy. Problem with this kind of spotty new is that you can't really even tell who is behind it. Combine that with slumped first quarter firearm sales across the board...well, like I said, find a better reason to get that AR.

    I do understand that this supply and demand is triggered by outside influences that are ever so delicate. I haven't had the time to look into this too much and I guess, I'm just being lazy and seeking opinions from ya'all in an effort to quell my fears.

    I do value the feedback on this virtual world of ours, as there are many different views and the majority of members are older and wiser than I and therefore, you have more to base your opinions on than I.

    Thank you for your responses.
