The Effect of the Ammunition Shortage

The ammunition shortage caused by the recent push for more gun control has gotten out of hand. It’s actually bad enough that suicidal individuals have to hold up gun stores with empty firearms just so they can acquire a firearm to shoot themselves with:

The incident began around 7:30 p.m. Saturday along Commerce Boulevard in Fairless Hills.

Sources tell Action News that he went into the sporting section and asked to see a shotgun and ammunition.

The store clerk complied and McCarty allegedly pulled out a handgun and told the clerk to undo the gun lock on the shotgun.

Witnesses say McCarty then took the shotgun and ammunition and ran to the bathroom, barricading himself inside.

At least I’m assuming the man was unable to acquire ammunition for his handgun since he didn’t kill himself with it.
