NEWS RELEASE
CCRKBA SAYS BUY AMMO, SUPPORT THOSE WHO ENABLE EXERCISE OF SECOND AMENDMENT
BELLEVUE, WA – Second Amendment supporters should buy ammunition November 19th to support freedom, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

Monday, November 19th is National Ammo Day, described as a BUYcott of ammunition. 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.

According to the National Ammo Day website, each law-abiding supporter of the right to keep and bear arms is encouraged to buy 100 rounds of their favorite ammunition. Supporters are exhorted to “Make your support of the Second Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!”

“Gun stores, ranges, and ammunition manufacturers across the country are under constant attack by a barrage of federal, state, and local regulations, frivolous lawsuits, and protests,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “If every gun owner bought 100 rounds of ammunition, that would put an estimated 7.5 billion rounds of ammunition into the hands of law-abiding gun owners dedicated to defending our constitutionally-protected individual right to keep and bear arms.”

Mark A. Taff, CCRKBA Executive Director, went one step further and encouraged gun owners to not only buy 100 rounds of their favorite ammunition, but to fire those rounds on their local gun range. “I can’t think of a better way to spend a Monday evening than putting some rounds down-range to improve our marksmanship skills. Hitting what you aim at is crucial to responsible armed self-defense.”

Taff also stated that it was important to not only support your local firearms & ammunition dealers and ranges with money, but also with moral support. “The number of licensed gun dealers has plummeted, in part due to harassment by the BATFE, so it is important that firearms dealers know that gun owners appreciate the sacrifices they make and the abuse they endure to ensure that we have the practical ability to exercise our rights.”

I'm already rather stocked up. My wife'll have a fit if I go out and buy more ammo and store it on the dining room table. My closet is already full.

spanielsells: tell your wife I said it's OK, think of it as an investment- you're beating inflation. Don't worry, you'll make more money. I have faith in you!
Cheers Roman :D

Good thinking gal!
By the way, sorry I haven't commented on your new, old avatar. You look GREAT as a well armed woman. (just don't tell hubby).
Or tell him the truth- I'm nearing 65, out of Viagra and harmless- just ask my wifey!

I just bought 200 rounds of 9mm and 100 of 12 ga. today. Can I get credit for participating in this effort, or do I have to buy more on Monday?

Nope! You have to buy more, I know that will most likely upset you! You may have to visit some gun shops or a sporting goods store or two, not a fun way to spend a Monday. ;) ;)

I am off for the day too, so I can shop until I drop! Or until Mrs. Sig drags be home by the ear!
