Ammo disappearing faster than a speeding bullet.

If you can’t take people’s guns away, make it impossible for them to use the guns. That seems to be the government’s strategy as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) buys up millions of bullets.

Of course, it’s not just DHS that’s purchasing ammunition. As gun-control legislation increases and fears mount that guns and ammunition will become increasingly more difficult to acquire, gun owners are trying to stockpile ammo as well. Not only are stores having a difficult time keeping ammo on the shelves, some local law enforcement agents are also struggling to find what they need.

Storeowners in New York state, where gun control laws have already been toughened following the tragic shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, and elsewhere, are telling customers they need to arrive within one day of a shipment to get what they want, or are limiting purchases to several boxes per day.

It’s not the first time there’s been a run on ammunition, but some sportsmen are saying that the current ammo shortages are nationwide and are the worst they’ve ever seen. With other states also considering tougher laws, the situation is not likely to improve in the near future.

Have you experienced any recent difficulty in purchasing ammunition for your guns? If so, which particular ammo is proving tough to find? Have storeowners told you why these shortages are happening? Do they have any idea if and when things will return to normal? Please let me know what you are encountering in your neck of the woods.
