    This is a midterm election year, which usually doesn't garner the attention that presidential election years do. However, there's certainly the real possibility that we could be looking at one party government again, like in 2009-11. If so, I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that many of the insane gun control measures will get ramrodded through. Do you expect another round of panic buying this fall if the dems do indeed consolidate their power, or is a flip in the House (coupled with holding the Senate) too low profile despite the inevitable consequences?

    There will be another run before 2016.

    Buy ammo now while it's available and not insanely priced.

    If the Dems take it all expect massive gun control legislation to be passed. They are pissed they couldn't get it after Sandy Hook and they aren't going to care how constitutional or illegal any of it is. They will pass what they want and let the courts decide on if it should stand.

    As far as a panic if it does happen, history says it will, but my only question would be would it be too close to the last panic to be as bad? Of course if they are talking about banning anything, that anything will surely disappear overnight, but if they leave ammo out of it, perhaps that won't spark a feeding frenzy for ammo like we seen last year.

    I really don't know, but you can be assured I personally am not taking any chances. The worst that can happen is I have enough guns, ammo and accessories to last a few lifetimes. :peace:

    Yes, if the Dems take the House and keep the Senate, there will be a panic every bit as bad if not worse than post Sandy Hook.

    And that will be the least of our problems.

    While I think its prudent to be prepared for the worst, I don't think the sky is falling. We could "what if" this to death.

    I haven't heard any credible pundit suggest that the Republicans could/would loose control of the House even if they lost a few seats. Right now its 233 to 200 in favor of the Republicans. Most have suggested the republicans will pick up a few seats riding on the AHC, NSA, Benghazi et al fiascos. It doesn't seem likely they would loose 33 seats. Historically, a sitting president's party looses House seats in second term mid-term elections. Everything points that way.

    The Senate is a different story. Currently 53 to 45 in favor of the Dems with a couple of independents thrown in. 33 seats will be contested. Most are predicting the Dems, by a slim margin, will hold the senate but loose some seats. It's all comes down to the swing states. As long as Obama keeps doing what he's doing there is a possibility Republicans could gain the Senate. That is the race to watch.

    There are already ads being aired against several of the incumbent Damnocrats using the "If you like..." manure that was spewed when Obuttfuckcare's implementation was in progress. The Affordable Care Act is going to, quite possibly, bite some of the Damnocrats in the ass but if the kool aid swilling, low information, brain-dead voters are bussed out in force as they have been in the past, there could be some upsets in the midterm elections....upsets that will be disastrous for us conservatives.

    Though I dont foresee losing the House, I can see us picking up seats in the Senate. It all depends on WHO gets out and votes. Now is the time to talk to folks, spread the word. As far as "panic"....I am just buying ammo every chance I get. I dont care who is in power, all it takes these days is for some moron up there to utter the words "gun control" and people freak out.

    I bought a lot 18 months ago. Not much in last year. Felt good about what i had but its dwindled since. Ive been having the same thought. Might have to order a few cases soon.

    Historically the party of the President loses seats when times are good. When times are Jimmy Carter looks good now and ambassadors are dying bad, It's more likely to be a Democrat bloodbath in 2014.
