I've been receiving a lot of the same emails lately about the Ammunition Accountability Act (read bullshit act) coming into play in our near future. Our very near future. Apparently, after June 30, 2009 all ammunition manufactures are going to be required to 'code' all ammunition sold so it can be tracked by quantity and caliber(s) purchased by individual Americans. Yup, us law abiding Americans are going to be under the microscope once again, but this time, they're going to increase the power by 100x. Yup, it's that good 'ol gummint database again. Big Brother keeps getting bigger and we keep getting smaller.
Here's a little snippet from the emails that I keep receiving from my Well Regulated Militia buddies, men and women alike:
The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and
Indiana ) requires all ammunition to be encoded by
the manufacture a data base of all ammunition sales. So
they will know how much you buy and what calibers. Nobody can sell any
ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is
coded. Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011.
(Including hand loaded ammo.) They will also
charge a .05 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo you
buy will go up at least $2.50 or more! If they can deprive you of
ammo they do not need to take your gun!
This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona,
California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois,
Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New
Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South
Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.
I checked snopes on this issue, and they are apparently still researching the claim. I consider myself pretty informed when it comes to this topic, but this is the first I've heard of it, and that really bothers me. I wouldn't put it past this increasingly tyrannical government to try and slide this one in the back door (without the courtesy of Vaseline). We continue to lose more of our freedoms by the day, so I guess I shouldn't really be surprised by it's possibility.
Paul had a great point in an email he replied back to me. The government has no fucking clue what kind of black market they will enable if this is in fact true.
Thank God the gun show is this weekend in Del Mar. I'm going to spend my entire bonus check on ammo (and maybe a re-loader on the Visa). Hell, maybe I'll max out the plastic in hopes of getting bailed out by this inefficient bullshit cock sucking government! Everyone else is. Especially the assholes who come up with these bullshit regulations.
I will continue to build my ammunition cache until I cannot afford another dime on it. We are living in some scary times people, and when the shit hits the fan, I'm going to be ready. I will not go down without a fight of major proportions and I know a lot of folks who feel the same way. A LOT! It's time to bunker down and get shit done! Join the NRA. Get informed so you can educate the masses of liberal morons who instantly equate a firearm to a murder. Take a liberal to the range and show them how fun it can be. Just do something!
These fucking asshole liberal bed-wetters are linked in the snopes post, but I can't get any of their links to open up for some reason. Apparently they are the cause of this email flying around cyberspace, but who really knows? I don't doubt anything at this point in time. If anyone can send me any information about this, it would really be appreciated. I would like to get the word out to the true Americans who believe in The Constitution and will still fight to defend it.
I really wanted to verify this Ammunition Accountability Act before I posted it, but I have come up empty on the real deal, and at this point I just want to get it out there and let you make your own decision and ask y'all if you had any factual information on the subject that you could send me.
Scary times we are living in. As law abiding gun owning Americans, we're in for a four-year ass fucking of major proportions to say the least. Say a prayer, stock up, get a friend to stock up, and bunker down people!
As for you gun-grabbing liberal assholes reading this and twisting your panties in a bunch over something you know absolutely nothing about.... BLOW ME!
Come and get it, bitch!
To end on a positive note, Patrick is shopping for a new revolver and that puts a big smile on my face. Happy shopping Patrick! Piss off a lib; buy a firearm!
