The 6th annual National Buy Ammo Day/Week is upon us.
Rather than wax eloquent on the subject I will let the founders of the movement explain;
November 19 is National Ammo Day.
It is a nationwide BUYcott of ammunition. You buy ammunition. 100 Rounds a person.
The goals of Ammo Day:
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!
Check out the National Ammo Day website and replenish a 100 rounds or more.
You don't have to break the bank to make a statement either, two 50 round boxes of .22 Long Rifle (everyone has a .22 don't they?) can be had for under 5 bucks.
Personally I have been holding off on buying some ammo for my Granddads ole' thutty tue Winchester in anticipation of Ammo Day. If you time it right you might get to see me at Scheels on the 19th.
