The New Gold

The new gold isn't gold. The new gold is ammo. Those who have it will be able to barter above and beyond the value of simple gold coins. Homeland Security and other federal agencies have bought billions of rounds of ammunition over the last six months. The government is stockpiling ammo, food and medical supplies.

Smart people will do the same. The government can't be wrong. Right?

Thousands Line Up Outside Cal Expo Gun Show To Buy Ammunition

Thousands of people lined up for hours outside Cal Expo to buy ammunition. The line wrapped around the building for the first day of the two-day gun show.
You’ve heard the early bird gets the worm. At the Crossroads of the West gun show it couldn’t be truer.
“We got here at 5:45 a.m.,” said one person. “We were 64th and it took us 3.5 hours.
“”This is for my rifle,” said an attendee.
Ammunition is a hot commodity at Cal Expo.
“I was planning on buying some ammunition around here but the line actually wrapped around the building,” said Galen Miller.
“What many people are coming for is ammo because there isn’t any available in the traditional channels,” said gun show owner Bob Templeton.
And the heated debate on gun control is prompting some gun owners like Miller to stock up.
