Ammo Rationing at Wal-Mart as Panic Buying Sweeps United States | The Register (UK)

More and more ammo shortages throughout the country. Whether it is just hype or not, a lot of folks are arming up on both sides. If you pile a bunch of kindling month after month in your backyard in a fire zone, eventually the kindling is going to erupt in a ball of fire. If people and the government are buying record amounts of ammunition, then it is only a matter of time before the ammo goes off somewhere.

I hope that our country is not headed down this destructive path, but it appears it may be imminent at this point. I am praying that both sides will pull back from the brink. Nevertheless, people have to be informed and prepared no matter what happens.

The USA is suffering the most severe ammunition famine in living memory. Gun fanciers, fearing a Democrat crackdown on every American's right to pack heat, are clearing shelves at ammo shops and hoarding cartridges...

The shortages are so bad that retail globocorp Wal-Mart has been forced to introduce rationing at the ammo counter in many of its stores. Depending on calibre, customers may be limited to purchases of just 50 rounds at a time.
