National Ammo Day/Week

Posted by Richard on November 19, 2007

Today, November 19, is National Ammo Day. And in deference to those who have trouble keeping to a tight schedule, Nov. 17-25 is National Ammo Week. It's been dubbed a "BUYcott of ammunition," with gun owners urged to buy a hundred rounds:

The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens.  Make your support of the Second Amendment known–by voting with your dollars!

There are an estimated 75 MILLION gun owners in the United States of America.  If each gun owner or Second Amendment supporter buys 100 rounds of ammunition, that’s 7.5 BILLION rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens!

The gun/ammunition manufacturers have been taking the brunt of all the frivolous lawsuits, trying to put these folks out of business.  Well, not if we can help it!  And we CAN help it by buying ammunition on November 19!

I plan to do better. I'm heading over to Big 5 Sporting Goods in a little while to pick up a 250-round "mega pack" of 9mm Remington UMC for just $49.99, and a box of 525 CCI Blazer .22LR for just $12.99.

That Tanfoglio Witness CO2 BB pistol on sale for $39.99 looks tempting, too. I don't go shooting very often; with a BB pistol, at least I could practice in the basement.

And besides, this one's powered by that evil greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide. I like the idea of simultaneously thumbing my nose at the enviro-whackos and the anti-gunners.

    RG, can’t a person be an “enviro-whacker” and support the Second Amendment? Though I don’t own a gun, I do support the “right to bear arms” for any law abiding citizen who feels the need or has the desire to have guns in their home. I also believe that the climate change the world is going through is exacerbated by modern man’s excessive use of fossil fuel. There is no dichotomy here!

    Mo, I didn’t say the enviro-whackos and anti-gunners are one and the same; sorry that wasn’t clear. I know there are plenty of people who consider themselves environmentalists and/or are global warming believers who support the 2nd Amendment. Likewise, I’m sure there are global warming skeptics who favor gun control.

    I was just making a joke regarding the BB pistol — firing it releases carbon dioxide into the environment, so it should bother ”both” those who worry about CO2 and those who think guns are evil. 🙂

    BTW, I bought the BB pistol. It’s fun!
