The gun grabbers want sales of ammunition limited, and in at least one case it’s starting to happen – just not as a way to disarm the public as they had hoped.

(Reuters) – Walmart has started to limit sales of ammunition to three boxes per customer per day due to limited supplies, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

Sales of guns and ammunition have risen across the United States since the December 14 shooting at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school.

Walmart U.S., is the largest unit of Wal-Mart Stores Inc the world’s largest retailer and the largest U.S. gun seller. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based retailer had said that it works to strike the right balance between serving hunters and sportsmen and ensuring that it sells firearms responsibly.

“In order to take care of as many customers as possible, starting Thursday, January 24, all ammunition sales were limited to three boxes per customer, per day as supply is limited at this time,” spokeswoman Ashley Hardie told Reuters on Wednesday.

In this case the laws of supply and demand trumps…

    Supply’s pretty much nonexistent locally. Might be a few boxes of 20 gauge, but that’s it. The rest of the ammo cabinet is an echoing void….

    Same here. Mother Hubbard’s cupboard is pretty much bare. Local range shop normally has three, 3 level cases full of handguns for sale. Since November’s election, you can now combine everything into 1 case and still have room to spare. Am waiting for Barry and Dianne to be named “Salesperson” of the year.

    This sort of news warms my heart: millions of Americans are voting with their pocketbooks. Perhaps it’s an indication that they may also vote with their ballots.

      alot of voters might not care about a particular politicians voting history, but if that politician is the one who just voted to make your brand new $1000+ AR15 illegal, it just might stick in your memory at the ballot box.

    I happened to be walking past the sporting goods counter a few weeks back just as the clerk there was unpacking a shipment of 7.62×39. I grabbed 12 20-rd. boxes and just over $5 a box, pretty much the going rate. Haven’t seen any since. Tonight, there was only some 9mm and 44 JHP. The rest was hunting rifle ammo and bird shot.

    The message needs to be expressed through weapon sales the the citizens of this country are the owners and not a bunch of crony, professional politicians who have all the perks of life on our dime. ww

      Absolutely. These fatcat politicians, from Barry down to the local wardheeler, are nothing more than the hired help: we pay them to see that the trash is picked up, the roads are kept up, and that the (uniformed) foreigners stay the hell out. I’m not unwilling to give them decent pay, but they do, indeed, need to remember that WE are the owners, not them.

    He may not know how to create jobs but Barry sure has a knack for spurring ammo sales.
