Apparently the wars we’re fighting throughout the world is causing a shortage of available ammunition for police officers in the United States:
Police chiefs around the state spoke of rising costs and long waits to get ammunition.
“We used to spend between $12,000 to $13,000 a year but now it’s around $16,000 to $18,000,” Hazlet Police Chief James A. Broderick told the news service.
Some chiefs said orders take a minimum of six months to get filled, and often take up to a year.
I think ultimately this is a good thing. Two things would occur if the police are no longer able to obtain large quantities of ammunition; they would need to learn how to shoot well and wouldn’t be able to murder as many innocent people. I’m sure a shortage of ammunition would have benefited Jose Guerena as the police not only murdered him in cold blood but also took 70 rounds of ammunition to do it.
