“Bannables” – you like that term? (hint: nod *yes*) I like it anyway. The only way it could be cooler would be if it was bananables . . . but that wouldn’t make sense; though it has a raging cool ring to it.
“But what IS a ‘bannable’?” you ask. C’mon, you can figure it out. Just take “able” as the Latin suffix. It means “capable of.” Thus “bannable” is that which is capable of being banned. You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? That’s right – the Mighty AR-15 (and similar such pieces, high capacity mags, the AK, etc.).
You see, a loyal SHTFblog reader who is also a firearms dealer sent me a note just a couple days ago saying he went to order some AR uppers from his wholesaler. He called – couldn’t get through; called – couldn’t get through; called – couldn’t get through; called – got through, but they were sold out of . . . EVERYTHING! He had to go to another, more expensive distributor for the pieces. The rush is on!
Then, just today, I’m surfing the internet and I find this news clip from Florida:
But WAIT – there’s more!
- Texas –Assault weapon sales spike before election
- Texas – gun sales up
- Oklahoma – Gun Business Booming as Election Nears
- South Carolina – Uncertain times trigger boom in gun sales
- CBS News – Gun Sales Thriving Despite Tough Economy
- Ohio – Politics and Economy Drive Gun Sales
- Virginia – Gun Sales are Up
- Connecticut – Gun Sales are UP in CT
- Alabama – Is the Election Causing Gun Sales to Spike?
- North Carolina – Gun sales boom in the Wilmington area
I could continue as the news list goes on and on and on, but I think you get the point – it’s happening all across the nation.
So what do YOU think? Is it time to make that purchase? Does it matter? Do you care? If a bear shits in . . . never mind.
I will say this, because I love my loyal readers, here’s a free plug to dude that sent me the note:
Want to buy your bannable? Go visit dude’s page on Auction Arms. You’ll see he has an M4 listed, an FAL, parts, etc., all at good prices. If you don’t see what you’re looking for – contact him. He’ll ship to an FFL near you (you know, so long as you live in a state that allows whatever it is you want). Tell him Ranger Man sent you.
