President Obama’s promise to reform federal weapons laws in the wake of Newtown, has apparently created a run on gun and ammunition sales.
One store in Kansas City said it sold three and a half years of ammo in three days.
Experts said people are stockpiling ammunition ahead of any possible ban.
Hard to find items include bullets for semi-automatic guns and hunting rifles, as well as 30-round magazines.
“We have seen a lot of requests come in for ammunition,” Chris Coad said, who owns a Kansas gun shop. “People are wanting to buy it in the case quantity.”
“We have limited to an certain ammo, where they can only buy five boxes at a time.”
