So before you mock someone, try to think of the possibilities.

Lighten up professor. We are way offtopic here, but really my comment didn't need a desertation of ammunition costs and it wasn't meant to be taken that serious - 3 paragraphs serious. He could have been shooting off BB guns for all we know, or spitballs, but neither BB's or even 22 rounds are ideal for home defense or his end-of-the-world anarchy scenario for obvious reasons. For the record, standard 9mm rounds cost about $150 for a box of 500.

Now lets get back on topic...

Talk about overreact. I love firearms as well, but not enough to shoot off $500 worth of ammo.

It goes pretty fast on full auto! LOL

And it was more than $500, but we only do it a couple or three times a year...just to stay proficient.

If you're going to block such things, block it all. Let the system collapse, of course those in congress are wealthy and if the established system collapsed so would their wealth....
All these bailouts make me sick. Just really, really sick. Why can't the spoiled CEO's and board members of these places just take their millions and start a new business somewhere? Why do the hardworking tax-paying people have to bail out the sneaky rich people who got themselves into these messes in the first place? It just all smells really corrupt and rotten to me.
