Local Gun Stores Low on Ammo

CITRUS HEIGHTS–

Gun shop managers across the Sacramento Valley say it’s the worst it has ever been.

“We’ve never had this little of ammunition in our shop before,” says Michael Horne, assistant manager of Shooters Warehouse. “Usually we have 1000’s of rounds on the floor.”

There are supposed to be five boxes of ammo in each space and on every shelf in the store, yet most of the shelves were pretty empty Sunday.

“We’re not the only gun shop in town, the manufacturer is sending us less,” Horne told FOX40.

Since December, the store manager says there’s been an ammo drought.

“It takes time for demand to settle down so manufacturers can catch up,” Horne says.

It’s supply and demand, he tells us. People are lined up in his store to buy ammo more than ever before, fearing legislation will prevent them from getting it in the future.

“In the United States we have the loosest laws … the largest suicide rate and the largest homicide rates,” says Gov. Dan Malloy of Connecticut.

Shooter’s Warehouse expects to have a full stock of ammo by summer, 2013.

“Thank goodness we make a lot of our money off of the guns, we have no short supply of that!” Horne says.

    “In the United States we have the loosest laws … the largest suicide rate and the largest homicide rates,” says Gov. Dan Malloy of Connecticut.

    That is just flat out false !! The homicide rate in the US is about 4.0 to 4.5 per 100,000. The rate in Venuzuala is 67. Yes, 67, no decimal point. Mexico has a murder rate of over 22 per 100k. Both countries have complete bans on civilian ownership of weapons.

    The Suicide rate in the US is about 12 per 100k. There are over thirty countries with higher suicide rates. Greenland has a rate of over 108 per 100k residents. China, Japan, Cuba are among the countries with higher suicide rates and complete bans on civilian gun ownership.
