Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

I just got back from Sportsmans Warehouse and the shelves are bare. Not even a damn box of primers. I don't get it. I can understand a run on ARs, but bullets, powder, and primers???

    Fear............. fear has become the ultimate tool of this government, fear of inadequate representation, fear of unconstitutional "laws", fear of executive action by a regime with no respect for the limits imposed on american government. Not unjustified fear but fear none the less. In this case fear of ammo shortages and or restrictions imposed. Hopefully this "run" on guns and ammo will help remind them, there are limits. Then again they may think pushing people into a corner and poking them is advantageous to there true end.

    I am pretty certain there will be zero impact to reloading supplies if some sort of ban passes. They are going after assault weapons not supplies. People hear ban and just go crazy on everything even items not even listed in pending legislation.

    IMO it is get it while you certainly can. Bird in hand. I doubt there will be any bans on reloading supplies.
    Now, there has been "background checks for ammo", the natural progression is "background checks on reloading supplies".
    So, like I said.... just as simple as bird in the hand.
    You will not lose money on the supplies.
    Look at ammo prices .223, 5.45x39, etc....

    Maybe this sums it up... As legal, law abiding Americans, a free people, we don't like to be watched, monitored, etc.
