Exclamation Weaponry; Discussion of Rights and Responsibilities

A new thread to talk about Guns and Ammo , gun violence and legislation , the other thread is now closed and all the discussion will move to this thread.
First thanks to Mal Hombre and SanteeFats for help with title of this thread

For the last several years I kept hearing rumors of the Govt. rationing 22lr ammo , I asked why 22lr , as yes it is deadly but no one I know uses this caliber for protection , we use it shoot off out in the desert as it is very cheap to buy , I was told this caliber is actually very popular in the inner cities ,
Last week I ordered 5 bricks of 22lr and my order was accepted and charged and then I received an e-mail telling me my first 3 bricks would ship the next day but the other 2 would ship after a 30 day waiting period , this is crazy as my brother bought 5000 rds of 9mm from the same company and they shipped his all in one shipment ,
Two different calibers and the same quantity but the smaller caliber is rationed
Now the next part of this rumor is the Govt. was buying up the difference in quantity from the manufactures , whether this is true I don't know
I am not a conspiracy theorist nut , sometimes rumors are based in fact.

I am not a gun owner but live with a Vietnam Veteran who is.

I have shot 9mm, .22, .38, and M-14 battle rifle from WW1.

I believe that the government should not have a monopoly on firearms.

I tend to agree with L.Neil Smith that the issue is like a Vulcan mind-meld that can separate freedom-loving statesmen from authoritarian politicians.

Have no firearm. Have noto shot anything more than a Nintendo light gun. As far as laws go I say "It depends", I would outlaw handguns altogether in private hands. Long rifles I would permit for hunting and self defensive purposes. I would enact these laws knowing full well that it would not solve America's gun violence problem overnight and with the laws a underground market would spring up, but over time I believe that with the laws & mandatory registration program that will go a long way to curbing the gun violence issue.

The M14 rifle was accepted by the US in 1959. If you fired an US WWI rifle, it would have likely been a 1903 Springfield or a 1917 Enfield.

22LR is a caliber lots of people stockpile. Preppers tend to believe that it will be a currency when the SHTF. Although the prices of ammo have fallen a bit, 22LR still seems to cost 10 cents or more per round. I don't really shoot it or stockpile it and my ancient memories of it costing less than 3 cents a round at retail outlets will probably never reoccur.

The law of supply and demand must be warping ammo costs to a great extent if 22LR costs 10 cents a round and 9mm costs 20 cents a round.

An example of the anti-gun mindset found on the coasts. If a student makes a pro-gun presentation, they get suspended - ?

I would not say all of the, more of the densely populated areas along the coast (big cities)

The second amendment is very clear.
"...the right of the people to bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."

And the original Founding Fathers are a great read on this, even through as late as the 1830s. But Americans would rather listen to the US media, than read all of the 'problems' of the times, many of which were not much different than the civics debates we have today.

But Americans don't read. They don't know about some of the early, American national issues with anti-government militias, Patriot-like Acts, etc... It still amazes me how Americans really don't know their own history, as it's repeated itself many times before, especially in its first 50 years of existence.

Just my own observation,
They know it, some just pick out the bits relevant for their own agendas

Indeed,
The ink that the Declaration of Rights was written with was barely dry before George Washington got 4 state militias together to quash a tax rebellion in Pennsylvania.
