Everyone knows that many of Kel-Tec’s firearms are difficult to find. At normal dealer price, as opposed to paying way over MSRP, they can be nearly impossible to get. Due to how clearly supply lags behind demand in many cases, there’s a lot of finger-pointing and blame, a lot of well-intentioned ‘suggestions,’ and plenty of rumors. All of which were in evidence in the comments to my PMR-30 review from six months ago and in basically every Kel-Tec-related post before and since. Recently I had the chance to talk to Kel-Tec and get a high level overview of why this problem actually exists and what the company is doing about it. Unless it’s specifically quoted below, the following is mostly my paraphrasing rather than direct quotes from Kel-Tec . . .
“It is not surprising that the authorities in this poor West African desert nation [Niger] . . . are nervously watching Boko Haram, a sect in neighboring Nigeria suspected of killing well over 400 civilians in the last five weeks alone, including children watching a soccer match over the weekend. The group’s fighters have made a habit of quietly slipping across the border into Niger to rest, rearm and refit, officials say — a pipeline the nation is eager to shut down with the Pentagon’s help. But instead of launching American airstrikes or commando raids on militants, the latest joint mission between the nations involves something else entirely: American boxes of donated vitamins, prenatal medicines and mosquito netting to combat malaria.” That from nytimes.com. To use an expression you don’t often hear in that part of Africa, oy vey . . .

When debating with people who oppose Second Amendment freedoms, no matter what they say or what red herring they introduce, the responses should be as follows:
- Can you define the English term “well regulated” as it was used and understood in the 18th century?
- Can you define the English term, “the people” as it was used and understood in the 18th century?
- Can you define the English term, “bear arms” as it was used and understood in the 18th century?
- Can you definite the English word “infringed?”
All arguments in favor of gun control or against the Second Amendment are essentially moot, since the amendment itself indicates that the government is in fact prohibited from infringing on this natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right. That being the case . . .
