Faster Than A Speeding Bullet

Ammunition sales up 42%, says the Washington Post. The stuff is just flying off the shelves.

The Post points out that these increased sales of ammo and guns are coming at a time when violent crime is low and actually declining, drawing the inference that gun owners are acting irrationally.

Yet the Post is quick to offer sympathetic coverage (and editorial endorsement) to every slipshod academic study that links increases in violent crime to increases in civilian firearms ownership.
