Panic gun buy coming soon in the near future?

I just programmed a huge job for one of our gun parts supplier companies and itís a staggering order over several months. Iíve not seen this amount of an order from them like this before. Iím thinking they know something or anticipating something coming.

Iím afraid that with all these left wingnut loony tunes going out and doing a mass shooting is causing all politicians to think about caving in on gun control.

What say you?

Maybe, but i doubt it. The market has been way down lately because i think the market is over saturated. Alot of companies have died off this spring and summer. I think two big distributers have folded in just the past 6 months. Furthermore, no legislation has any chance of passing. You might see an uptick this week or maybe next week, but overall, no there will not be another panic.

I've got a poly lower that I bought in the Sandy Hook gun buying craze, I wouldn't mind a bit of a scare to drive prices up so I can sell it

I was a lucky sucker and bought a bunch of blem 80% lowers when they were stupid cheap. I see an increase coming but not like we saw years back.

Only thing federal I see happening before the election is red flag laws. I would not be surprised if after Trump goes after something completely unrelated like suppressors. But most of the panic buying will happen on a state level. Based on new laws the rush in ďfor the childrenĒ.

If you are doing the programming of a job now it would mean the order was placed weeks or months ago? So nothing to do with recent events. Possible new government contract for the gun manufacturer?

Tin foil hat on . They are betting against Trump in 2020, which will lead to panic gun buying.

I know of at least one guy in CA that sold his serialized lower back to a FFL and converted everything to 80% built. As far as the ATF is concerned, he's rid of evil black killing machines.

It's so fucking retarded.

I say it will be ammo. They will try to go after fully built guns, but that wont take. They will go after what comes out (didnt OR add a tax to all bullets bought?) That will allow them to go around the 2nd, but still track who has what. I can remember as a kid being able to get the 700rd box of .22, for around 8-10 bucks, Last I checked it was twice that for a 550 rd box. Trump will add the bullshit ERPO laws, as it will "look" like he is doing something (they are mostly in place anyways with the 72hr hold and Domestic's in place, (ask Everdouchecanoe how well they work).

Nothing will change until society as a whole changes. This transgender bullshit, both parents working until dead, and the violence that pummels us 24/7. These young men do not have any role models (or are flat not taught how to be a man)to teach them any respect.

We, as a society, have caused this, And now we cant stand the monster it has become. Blame the gun, cause it is easier to do that, than fix the true problems.

Agree. Mental illness is part of it, but not 100% of it. Neither of these last nutjobs would've set of any mental health alerts.

The fool in Ohio did. Had letters to an old girlfriend, had written a "hit" list on a bathroom wall, and some other signs that should have set people off (like the idiot in the Denver Theater shooting and the church shooter a few years ago) They failed again to recognize issues and this shit happens. Thats how well the ERPO's work. This guy was bat shit crazy (hell he shot his own sister). No gun law would have stopped him. People shooting back would (did).

I have no doubt, just not sure if it will be a run on ammo or guns

Every time Oblamer mentioned "Common sense" gun legislation, AR15s flew off the shelf. I heard Biden mention a buy back and ban if he gets elected. Good luck with that

I don't think the dipshits like Biden realize that gun confiscation isn't going to go like they think. Just think " we want local LEO to go door to door and take the evil guns from citizens "
