Ammunition Shortage.jpgIn the last 6 months I am sure everyone that owns a gun is aware of the current ammunition shortage.  There is alot of speculation of why this has become a problem. The shortage doesn’t effect all types of ammo , atleast from what I am seeing. For instance if you shoot 7.62X54r your in luck Dunham’s has plenty military surplus as do the gunshows and other dealers. You can also find 12 gauge target loads about anywhere so skeet and trap shooters your in luck too. This biggest problem is for .223 .40 and 9mm ammo is the hardest to find. I have recently visited a local gun show to find pretty much nothing except guns.  I was searching for reloading supplies, ammo, and other misc items and found nothing but limited and overpriced ammo.  I am amazed how this is working out. As far as our local gun stores they have been getting a few boxes of ammo but they are usually $20 or more of hollow points.  I’m not really in favor of shooting that type of ammo for target practice. I did see 100rds of 9mm FMJ for $50, not a good deal.

Now lets discuss the root of this problem ,if you didn’t know  its the federal government. Since Obama was elected its pretty clear the liberals would love nothing more to remove the guns or ability to use them from law abiding US Citizens.  This would at any point in the future allow them to run us over with their style of government. Every dictator in history first disarmed their citizens first. I believe no matter what anyone says or what the Feds excuses are they are buying this ammo up to keep it from everyone else. THEY WANT TO WAGE A WAR AGAINST US.  They are draining the system of its supplies. There is no logical reason for this. The ammunition manufactures are filling gov orders and pushing everyone else to the back of the line. It goes farther than that, if you think reloading your own ammo will help you then good luck on getting supplies b/c the manufactures are buying bullets, powder, primers, and alot of supplies needed for reloading. You add this to the scare that Obama being elected and the Newtown shooting, everyone is buying anything they find. I am not sure what the solution is for this, but I wish there would be a real answer from someone at the federal government. DHS will not even answer to anyone even our own senators or congress. This is ridiculous, someone should get some real answers. Are we going to sit back and wait for them to eliminate a way for us to protect ourselves and our family. We cannot afford to let this happen.  This is a known problem and we need answers and a solution. Let me know what you guys think. I propose we start emailing manufactures of ammunition and ask them to stop selling ammo to the Federal Government until they give a concreate answer and proof of why they need 1.6 billion rounds and and other 360,000 in the last order. This isn’t for the US Military (they are getting cut) this is for the DHS, Department of Ag, FDA, IRS, you know all the federal agencies that need alot of ammo.  Even our local Law Enforcement agencies are having problems obtaining regular amounts of ammunition. You have read the news and there is more to this.  Some firearm manufactures are refusing to sell to state and local law enforcement agencies if the laws prohibit the residents of that state from owning them.  I wish they would restrict the Feds in the same way. with ammunition. This is an arms race with our own government against every us citizen. The worst part is we elect them and pay for them to make these decisions. I hope people are rethinking the last election and how they voted. This is what you get. Wait till it gets worse, it will be a log time before it get better. I just hope its not too late for our country.
