Much has been said over the last several months concerning firearm violence and stiffer legislation on the purchase of firearms. Speculation on limits on the type of firearm ownership and magazine capacities has been bantered around causing paranoia on all sides of the issue. Legal firearm and ammunition sales have skyrocketed due to potential legislative action on both the state and federal level. Much of the turmoil is due to a lot of hype and trepidation.
