#1 Well he sure as hell can't talk about the budget or anything else. Besides, keeping guns away from increasingly pissed off Americans is a win for him.

#3 What you may not be hearing about is the wholesalers who have shipments of guns and ammo from overseas who their shipments locked up in Customs warehouses. The US Customs Service is reportedly sitting on the shipments, awaiting guidance from Washington. Gun shop inventories are vanishing and many will soon be out of business. Some retailers have terminated the sale of guns and ammo. I suspect the next shoe to drop will be domestic manufactures of guns and ammo giving it up as well.

Welcome to the Police State.

#4 best gun salesman in the history of the world. Too bad he doesn't get a commission that could be applied against the national debt.

#6 No links Rob, shop owner and distributor telephone conversation only. They are trying desperately to restock shelves, but cannot receive shipments. I am searching the web for further supporting data.

#7 From some of the gun/shooter/hunter blogs I have been reading, to say there is "panic buying" taking place would be an understatement.

#8 Anecdotes from here in the reddest of red states: major city pawn shops that would each typically have dozens of used ARs in stock are sold out (the last fair examples fetched 3-4x the price of a very clean example brought prior to the 2008 election); ammo in many calibers is simply unavailable, larger quantities are sold out (often with no expected restock dates); 30 round AR clips that sold for $10-12 a few months ago are fetching upwards of $75 and are sold out in most shops; etc.

Panic buying is definitely an apt description for what's going on here.

#9 I have personal knowledge of Customs holding up deliveries as well, Besoeker. The reason given for the hold-up is "more inspections".

#10 Might not be without good reason. Drudge is headlining a Magazine Size ban. Which makes no sense and I'm not even sure how that's within his power via Executive Order.

#11 Obama's running "Smear" Ads saying "The Republicans are trying to scare you, Saying what's going to happen, DON'T BELIEVE THEM".

ON, I'll wait untill you step outside the Law, THEN I'll say BELIEVE HIM.
