Election and gun prices
So I walked into a pawnshop yesterday looking for a banjo. No banjos but lots of guns. I used to be into guns due to a previous occupation. So I look them over and notice that the new handguns are all going at full retail and the used ones are almost the same price.

The fellow behind the counter tells me this election has been the best thing that ever happened to the gun industry. I guess it's like the generator shortage just before Y2K. I know people with 20,000 rounds of 5.56 NATO ammo under their beds. And apparently you can't buy 22LR ammo anywhere.

And just like the generators, next year all of this stuff will be on the surplus market. That's scary.

Ah, now it all makes sense. The preppers must be buying up all the banjos!

EDIT: I put this into the Casual Coffeehouse hoping it would be tongue-in-cheek. If it turns political I hope the Mods will move or remove it.

RE: Election and gun prices
America is the best thing that has happened to the gun industry in general. The election is just a slight upswing on the graph. Dodgy

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

If? Dodgy

Don't worry, that never happens. OPs that mention guns in the US never turn political.

RE: Election and gun prices
Step 1 - Be afraid.

Step 2 - Buy a gun to be less afraid.

Step 3 - Repeat steps 1 and 2.

Step 1 is the precursor for pretty much every action any human takes. Step two varies but is ultimately an attempt to accomplish the same objective by different means.

But be wary when the people profiting from Step 2 are telling you lies to kick-start Step 1.

I wasn't afraid when I bought my computer. Fear didn't motivate me to go see Doctor Strange at the movie theater yesterday. Fear is a terrible epistemology.

Not quite so. More accurately stated it would be that fear is a terrible foundation on which to base your epistemology.

Fear itself is quite useful. In fact our evolution depends on it.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
