This article shows what first steps are put into place by leftist governments to stop people from defending themselves. My Uncle Ray always said that the most significant move could be the control over the production/sale of primers. All reloaders take heed... time to start stockpiling primers is near. Bullets are already hard to find and very expensive in the USA, severely impacting efforts to stockpile them.
For those reloaders who cast their own bullets, as I did... be careful with the fumes. Be serious about a facemask and ventilation, or you can end up with high blood levels of lead, antimony, mercury etc. I had to undergo 3 hour chelation treatments for 12 weeks due to breathing the melting linotype and wheel weight vapors with just a paper mask... very expensive.
ONE THING is very clear: if the government takes stringent steps to impact it's citizens ability to defend themselves, you can be certain that the government has plans to restrict liberty. Such as... free speech http://www.laht.com/article.asp?ArticleId=344535&CategoryId=10717
... and property rights of citizens http://www.laht.com/article.asp?ArticleId=344531&CategoryId=10717
Thanks Rick for the heads up!
Bet several governments around the world have something similar in mind.
