Victor Davis Hanson observes: In short, Obama will always poll around 45 percent. That core support is his lasting legacy. In a mere five years, by the vast expansion of federal spending, by the demonizing rhetoric of his partisan bully pulpit, and by executive orders and bizarre appointments, Obama has so divided the nation that he has created a permanent constituency that will never care as much about what he does as it cares about what he says and represents.

I was in Greenville, S.C., a couple of weeks ago, and stopped by the following stores: Allen Arms, Sharpshooters Gun Club And Range, Academy Sports, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Walmart. Allen Arms had some handgun ammunition, as did Sharpshooters. No 5.56 mm, no .30 Carbine (well, they did have Wolf, but I won’t put steel through my rifles). The shelves at Academy sports, Dick’s and Walmart were bare, as if a tornado had made its way through the stores.
I have also recently stopped by Firepower (Matthews, N.C.), Hyatt Gun Shop (Charlotte, N.C.) and Walmart (Charlotte, N.C.). Hyatt had some ammunition, but their stocks were way down. I did pick up some .30 Carbine from Hyatt. Firepower had some, but were down in stocks too, and 5.56 mm ammunition was higher than it was the last time I purchased it.
At Walmart I would have bought .38, .357 Magnum, .40, .45, .30 Carbine, 5.56 mm, and 22 WMR. I’m not picky. I need a lot of all sorts of ammunition. Tonight here is what the closest Walmart ammunition shelves looked like. A few oddball rifle cartridges on the very bottom.
