A friend in a rural, upstate New York has just emailed me intelligence that gun shops in his area have now entered the hoarding stage on even .22LR ammo. My friend reports that “dealers are breaking up 50-round boxes and selling the ammo in smaller 20-round lots in plastic baggies (just like drugs).” That is, when they even can get the ammo.
I have written often to you that ammo would be better than money and that you would be wise to load up. In that I have regularly emphasized .22LR ammo, my advice remains stronger than ever. The gun pictured is a Stevens12-gauge tactical, which my friend recently picked up new for the bargain price of $279. If you can do as well, I’d jump at the chance.
And by the way, my friend’s local gun shop will now sell only to locals who are known by the longtime owner. Out-of-staters and outsiders of any stripe can now forget it. The scenario I outline for you here is just a straw in the wind, which in coming years is likely to turn into a torrent. The government, as it now stands, is on the march. And your 2nd Amendment rights are in the crosshairs. Allies like Sheriff Richard Mack, Oath Keepers, and the NRA stand for your 2nd Amendment rights. Be certain your House member and senators are on the team. If not, work hard to get rid of each. I will be posting here at Richardcyoung.com those congressmen who will be in the midterm election, especially in need of your help.
