HYSTERIA: U.S. ammunition suppliers report a shortage


Consider this: A gun store is limiting the amount of .22-caliber ammunition a customer is able to purchase at one time to one box. Since the government began talk of limiting guns the shelves of gun stores have been emptying as rapidly as supplies are replenished.

In addition to .22 shells being in short supply, 9mm, .40 and .45 are virtually non-existent. Those stores that do have these cartridges in stock are commanding higher prices.
