It's chest puffing. We heard the same in 2016, 2012, 2008. A lot of people got duped into buying overpriced firearms/ammunition during the last big run (2012), and 8 years later they seemed to have forgotten that the people with the most to gain by selling truckloads of guns/ammo are the people amplifying the panic using social media.I have seen some pretty direct statements from folks on both fringes about what they might do if their chosen candidate loses. I choose to believe they're all just puffing their chests, and that our society will mostly continue as normal regardless... but I also choose to be prepared for the worst. It's my opinion that Caputo shouldn't be saying this kind of thing from his position, but the threats of widespread violence are there regardless of who wins. It would be very naïve to pretend it can't happen here as it has so many other places.
The manufacturers and distributors are in on it too. Selling 20 cent/round ammo for 40 cents/round will put a new boat under the Christmas tree.It's no accident that Dems have huge amounts of their hedge-fund money sunk into gun and ammo makers... every time they fire up a panic, we run to stock up, more money for them.
THIS is true too.The manufacturers and distributors are in on it too. Selling 20 cent/round ammo for 40 cents/round will put a new boat under the Christmas tree.
....yeah but....9mm has 350 ft/lbs of energy.....45acp has 425...... 40Small and Weak has 500......556 or 762x39 each have 1800.... 308 or 762x51 have 2700.It is written, "Yea verily, I say unto you that the .45 is unclean and used by those who's thumbs are not opposed. It is the caliber of the those with the low forehead and dimmed vision. Exalt ye instead in the virtues of the 9MM that is both swift and powerful, delivering death and destruction in great quantity to those that have thin shields. let it be known throughout the land that the 9MM is good and has my favor."
Only if Trump wins re-election will there be any more riots, but only in the cities, and not in the suburbs. Nobody in the suburbs will tolerate rioters.
Damn Camo, that really hits it on the head. I know you are right, I am just not quite ready to accept it.In all seriousness.... no matter who "wins" the elections this year, America as a concept, Liberty as a principle, and freedom as a result of responsibility... these have already lost.
This was my exact take. The rioters were not able to project beyond the inner city sh*t holes they were rioting in and therefore were no threat. I espoused that here and other places. It was right for a while.Only if Trump wins re-election will there be any more riots, but only in the cities, and not in the suburbs. Nobody in the suburbs will tolerate rioters.
I think Caputo got too kooky for his employers, he’s been put out to pasture. Radio silence since his rant.
