Sounds feasible to me.
All of those guys are Masons anyway, so the 'brotherhood' will take care of each other.
Here again, the government appears is using it's leverage to restrict the ability of Americans to defend themselves when the time comes.
I was looking for ammo online last night. Winchester is not the only offender. Federal 300WM Match was priced at $94 A BOX!! This was at either Midway or Brownell's, don't recall which. No matter... that's just insanity!
So, now how do we counter this... I'm thinking boycott.
Just the way I see the dots connecting.

So who killed Kennedy ? Come on man, we all wanna know!
Good grief. Everyone is looking for a scape goat.
I'm a Winchester freak, & own a pile of them. That being said, I'd just as soon buy a used Win-70 & have another semi custom built on my favorite action of all time, for quite a few hundred $ more, than fork out what Winchester wants for a new rifle.
I'm almost, but not quite in agreement with Outlaw, with the major exception being I wouldn't own a cheapo Savage, because I like fit, finish, & feel of much nicer rifles. Cheap isn't the do all end all, & I think he & I both agree on that. But a Very high level of accuracy should be Expected for the price Winchester charges for their rifles, which is the point I believe Outlaw was making.
Especially when some cheap plastic, rough as a Cobb rifles (like Savage) are known to be Very accurate for a lot less $.
Everyone develops opinions based on personal experience. Now you've got one more.
Oh, & I'm not a Mason, or an Illuminate' or affiliated with the Masons, Winchester, or Kennedy in any way. Sheesh!
