I have noticed since the recent election, that there is has been a run on guns and ammo. I understand the concepts of free market and supply and demand, but I also perceive what appears to be a very dangerous precedent being set. At a recent gun show in Conroe, the price for an AR-15 increased from around $1,000 to near $2,000 in a little over 24-hours. This seems to me, blatant greed, price gouging on a scale that would have landed the perpetrators in deep kemchee had this been done during say Hurricane Ike. This goes outside the bounds of supply and demand. I just today read of a new owner in Michigan going to pick up a pistol he had recently purchased and paid 50% down on, being told that the firearms had increased in price $100+ dollars because of the new Obama law. I understand everyone's concern over this new CIC and his overt disregard for the 2nd Amendment, but aren’t we playing into his hands by pricing firearms and ammunition out of the range of the common citizen. I have to ask, once the dust settles, how many of these "New" gun owners are going to be loyal to the pro 2nd amendment crowd and how many will turn-away at the obvious greed that seems to be permeating the culture.
