We have seen the balance of powers in the Government toyed with through executive orders, and judges who legislate from the bench, or disregard their Constitutional duties to send a message.
The above is a quote from Magman454. You so hit it right on the head. This is the crux of our problem. We are letting a few judges decide what is going to happen in our country.
"I just sold a $550 AR upper for $900. The guy who bought it is thrilled even after I told him what I paid for it. Ask me if I lose any sleep. "
So you are a carpet bagger ! you are part of the problem.
Look it up.

It is better to avoid than to run; better to run than to de-escalate; better to de-escalate than to fight; better to fight than to die. the very essence of self-defense is a thin list of things that might get you out alive when you are already screwed.- From “Meditations on Violence
It's actually the distributors that are mostly responsible for the high prices right now. When I was at the last gun show, I saw a PMR-30 for $1200.00. As I was looking at it, the guy running the table came over and we had a little talk. I asked him why it was priced soo much higher than MSRP. He said that he calls the distributor with a list of what he wants. The distributor then puts a quote together with what is in stock, what is backordered, and the prices. If something that is popular comes in, the distributor calls all of the stores that requested the item, and basically sells it to the highest bidder.
After confirming that I would not be buying the weapon, he showed me the invoice that had the PMR-30 on it. He was only asking for $100.00 more than he paid for it.
Self defense is not a part-time job!
