The REAL Ammo Shortage

Just throwing this one out for comments.
The post below (from a link in the the box o truth forum - Supply and Demand 101) puts things into clear perspective for the current ammo "shortage". But I think a couple of obvious questions didn't get answered:

1. WHO started the panic?
2. ...and why????

I have my theory on who really profits from all this but wanted to see what other members think.

90% agree

ebear -
I think you have one of the players dead on. This smacks of the "oil shortage" last year when prices were at $5 a gallon on the West Coast and the oil companies (BUSH) made hundreds of millions in profits.
But I think there is also much more to it politically ...from the Prez on down.
For example - lets start a rumor (or a war) which drives up profits for a select group and deprives certain foreign interests of some of the raw materials they want which then can be bartered back to these same foriegn interests at a higher price to eliminate some of the enormous debt our government owes them.
The gun industry and its suppliers are gearing up peak workforce, (forget the stock market) money is flowing again. Granted its just a small sector of our economy but I see it as a blueprint for things to come..."ride 'em hard and put 'em away wet"...just ask GM and Chrysler how that feels.
Notice how the bankers always seem to come up smelling like roses - when they are primarily responsible for the current state of most citizens (worldwide) economic health? Where did our $350 billion go? Certainly not for US HEALTHCARE...are your mortgage payments any smaller post bail-out?
Our politicians are bought and paid for on each side of the isle and they are only free to do whats best for the "chosen elite" of this country.
Ammo shortage - what ammo shortage?

...shoot 'em if ya got 'em!
