ABC News reports that buyers in record numbers are flooding into gun stores. Ammo is flying off the shelves: “The reasons for the spike, last seen in 2009, include fears that a second Obama administration might restrict gun ownership and the popularity of TV shows devoted to doomsday preparation and killing zombies.”
ABC does not present these explanations as mutually exclusive. On the contrary, they are mutually reenforcing. They are signs of the times. C’mon, people: Connect the dots!
Enterprising writers, take note. There is a best-seller of monstrous proportions to be fabricated out of this story.
