Old Trooper send us a link to CBS News in which they report that Little Chuckie Schumer has asked that gun retailers stop selling guns while the the Senate debates gun control;
The New York Democrat says consumer demand for guns has gone up in the weeks since the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.
Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won’t help if more of them have recently been sold.
Sorry, if we’re not being helpful, Chuck, m’boy, but that’s kind of the point. Besides, gun retailers can’t sell what they don’t have – as far as I can tell, shelves are bare at most places in the country. I know that the magazines I back ordered last month are not expected until April. So there ya go, you get your wish, but only because gun manufacturers can’t keep up with demand. Neither can magazine makers and ammo producers. I figured now would be the time to buy the bolt action rifle I’ve been wanting since they aren’t being considered for the ban. Everyone was sold out of those, those. Funny how that supply and demand thing works, isn’t it?
