Ammo still selling out

Sportsman's Warehouse today, first time in a couple of weeks. Worse than ever. No rimfire at all except two boxes of CCI 22 Short. Handgun ammo basically gone, just three boxes of 50AE and maybe a dozen 44 mag. Long gun ammo was just a few scattered boxes in between very wide gaps. Gun racks are half empty. It seems people are buying anything that shoots. Clerk says even BB guns are selling out.

I figure places that sell steel utility buildings should be busy. People couldn't have any room left in the house or garage......

What puzzles the clerk is that people are buying ammo and guns, but very little cleaning gear ?

Cleaning gear...what?? You need to clean these things???? Can I just put 'em in the dishwasher???

Some of the folks I've seen in the gun stores taking home a firearm over the last four months are just plain scary. The only consolation is that this insecurity will die down someday and these folks will put the firearm away and never touch it again.

The consolation is these people will learn and join the ranks of gun owners thwarting the democrats plans to ban them all.

I hope you are correct. That would be an ideal outcome.

When people see thugs in the streets beating up elderly, harassing people not to mention burning and looting then they realize that self defense is not as the media characterizes it, white supremacist. They then realize what the 2nd Amendment truly means.

Some poll says that most people want the election winner to fill the SCOTUS seat. I think that's what Trump is trying to do !

There have been 29 vacancies in election years and the president has put forth 29 nominees:

I have previously written up the history (mainly here and here) of Supreme Court nominations in presidential election years, or in lame-duck sessions following a presidential election. To summarize: there have been 29 such vacancies, and presidents made nominations for all of them, in most cases promptly:

In 19 cases, the president’s party held the Senate; 17 of the 19 vacancies were filled, the exceptions being the bipartisan filibuster against Lyndon Johnson’s nominees in 1968 and George Washington’s withdrawal and resubmission in the next Congress of a nominee who was ineligible to be confirmed (he’d voted to create the Court, and the Constitution made him wait until there was a new Congress seated). Nine of those 17 were confirmed before the election, and eight after. Three were confirmed in lame duck post-election sessions even though the president had just lost reelection.
In ten cases, the party opposing the president held the Senate; only one of the ten got a nominee confirmed before the election, two were confirmed after the election when the president’s party won the election, and one (Dwight Eisenhower’s nomination of William Brennan) was a pre-election recess appointment that was confirmed by the new Senate in the new year after Eisenhower was reelected.
It is, however, true that none of the nominees confirmed before the election passed the Senate later than mid-July. Why? Mostly because the Senate was out of session. It was once common for the Senate to be out of session for much of the summer and fall. Leaving aside cases where a nomination was already made and rejected before mid-July (by one means or another, including the Republican rejection of the Merrick Garland nomination), there have been six cases where a vacancy opened or was unresolved between mid-July and the election:

Very true on the BB guns and air guns. People were digging old air guns out of the closet during the early lockdown phase of the pandemic to have something to shoot at home. It's been a record year in the air gun industry. Fortunately, pellets and air guns are still available on line, but availability and selection are limited. Nowhere near as bad as in the regular gun and ammo market though. We've been shooting our air guns all summer, rather than burning up ammo for the powder guns. Still have a good supply of rimfire ammo and some centerfire, but replacing what we shoot is a real problem, right now.
