    Angry Department of Homeland Security Investigating Large Ammunition Purchases

    Gunmakers can thank a former New York senator and presidential candidate for an ongoing boom in gun sales, if you ask one local firearms vendor.George Nemec, owner of Nemec’s Sport Shop & Farm & Garden Center in Warrensburg, said gun sales at his business began to increase about two years ago, after Sen. Hillary Clinton announced her intent to run for president. People were concerned about the possible impact of a Democratic president on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

    “Handguns, shotguns, rifles — it’s every type,” Nemec said. “People are worried the government is going to take their guns away, or they’re going to tax them (guns and ammunition) to death.”

    With a Democratic president in office and economic troubles fueling fears of rising crime, guns — and the rounds they fire — are a hot commodity these days.

    Across the country, gun dealers are reporting a big uptick in sales of both firearms and ammunition. Requests for federal background checks for prospective gun buyers have surged since last fall, with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms reporting a nearly 50 percent increase after the election of President Barack Obama.

    Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, said gun and ammunition sales around the country have risen in recent months.

    Gun sales going ballistic :: Today ::

    And I didn't read anything about any investigation by anyone into anything. One reported visit to one buyer over one purchase, atrocious though it may be in a free society, does not constitute evidence of a pervasive investigation. I surmise it was over some other issue than the number of rounds or otherwise was conducted by a couple of DHS agents bored out of their skulls trying to justify their pay checks.

    Don't retreat. Just reload.
