As I reported earlier, there is now a shortage in the ammunition market. The old saying goes: Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action. This shortage is therefore looking like it’s being caused by government fiat. In the past month:
- UTM is ordered by ATF to stop selling to the civilian market
- Explosion at Hornady, where one manly, FUGLY looking female employee was killed while mixing compounds for primers
- CCI, Speer, Remington, and Federal were sold to a foreign corporation
- Lake City cancels all commercial contracts.
We know that Biden said more than a year ago that he wants to cut off ammunition sales to the public. He tried last year to cut off the funding to the plant, but was stopped by Congress. So, it appears that he is trying a new tactic.
Mr Guns and Gear has some information on this:
This is not the end. Expect things to accelerate. I think that 2024 is going to be a rough ride.
