Why is everyone scooping up every AR or "assault" rifle they can find? Everyone heard about the recent tragedy in Newtown, but what is driving people get grab all these types of guns now? I saw a guy bought (4) AR-15s and another guy must have had at least (40) 30rd clips. I almost got swept up in the frenzy, then I stepped back and asked myself, WHY?? I wasn't looking at buying one last week, why now? The only reason I can see is...
1. They might be banned, so get'em while you can
2. Reselling at a premium price (investment)
3. Doomsday preppers?
4. Protection? if so from who?
Let me say I am not in favor of restrictions or bans. You can't help but smile after dumping an entire clip in a short amount of time. Just curious for your reasons
