Walk into Big 5 Sporting goods, Wall Mart, K Mart or any store that sells .22 LR ammunition. This is sporting ammunition. It is used for target shooting. It is used to teach young children safe firearms practices and basic marksmanship. It is used for hunting small game such as rabbit. It is used by farmers to shoot rodents who destroy their crops. It is not a military round and has not been used in any of the recent tragic events. The shelves are bare. There is no .22 rim fire ammunition for sale. Fact.
The following facts can be verified in MANY media stories and on many TV news stories.
Employment has increased dramatically at the ammunition and firearms factories. These are small companies in most cases. Fact.
Let me ask you to think about recent events in California where a highly trained (according to the media) ex-military man and police officer went on a rampage (and is still at large) shooting innocent people and law enforcement officers. I ask myself if this could be a plot by the government to show that guns should not be in the hands of anybody including trained people? Perhaps it is nothing more than the media and administration using the timing of this tragic event to their advantage. Consider some of the facts about this ex-military ex-law enforcement officer. He was fired for testifying against others for excessive force or something like that. I may have my facts wrong in this example so please feel free to fact check on your own. There are two sides to every story and if somebody is hired by the LAPD and has risen to the ranks of an officer in the U.S. Navy and THEN flipped out could there be some other question that need to be asked?
It would not be the first time in history that our government, the media, law enforcement or court system twisted data and situations to support their agenda. Fact.
