“It’s widely known the ammunition shortages continue.” – Smith & Wesson CEO Mark Smith.
As gun sales soar across America due to increased crime and fear of Biden’s gun policies, ammunition is still difficult to find. Gun sales rose last year after the death of George Floyd that triggered riots and random attacks on innocent civilians. Rising crime in urban cities like New York City also contributed to the rise in gun purchases for protection.
According to Fox News, Smith & Wesson said it shipped nearly 2.5 million units last year, up 70% from 2020.
BACKGROUND CHECKS HIT AN ALL-TIME HIGH LAST YEAR:
This is why it’s concerning that ammunition is still hard to find. A gun isn’t much use without the ammo unless a gun owner makes their own bullets.
Rob Southwick, president of Southwick Associates, explains why he expects the demand to continue, “Frenzied purchasing and empty shelves often fuels further demand increases. We do not see demand softening in the near future.”
SOME CONSPIRACY THEORISTS BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT IS INVOLVED:
When the ATF knocks on your door, at least you’ll know whose ammo will be in their guns.
