Gun laws and unintended consequences

Instead, I refer only to the unprecedented, sustained spike in firearm and ammunition sales since the election of Barack Obama. Since the election, even those who have no interest in gun issues (whether on the pro-rights side, or in favor of restrictive gun laws) can scarcely have avoided hearing and reading innumerable accounts of the vastly accelerated rate at which the American people are arming themselves.

The primary reason for this, of course, is concern that draconian gun laws are on the way, and that the window of opportunity for legal acquisition of firearms and ammunition is closing. Talk from government officials of banning so-called "assault weapons," heavily restricting gun shows, gun registration, ammo registration, etc., only reinforces that kind of thinking. [More]
