I personally think the best way to 'put them in check' is to have them lose money by folks not buying their over-priced products. Having the government do it is a slippery slope."Good reason", that's my words, my thought process, maybe not the governments I don't know. But I would think, because government is SUPPOSED to work for us that we have some input into what they deem is reasonable and prudent.
I would accept reasonable price increase(s) if they were based on known common contributing factors like more expensive manufacturing costs, material cost increases, delivery cost increases etc, but to simply raise your prices because a **** load of people want the product you're were selling yesterday for a dollar and today for five is just wrong.
Larry, I absolutely agree with you that I certainly do not want government sticking their nose in my business any more than they already are. But someone needs to put these clowns in check.
Not only that, but if they are selling product, in the day and age of the internet and instant price checks, ARE their prices too high? Or are they catering to folks who are willing to pay a premium for ammo they really need? And if that's the case-is it gouging? Because it really sounds like the free market working, to me....
