The Federal government and/or the current presidential administration has apparently decided that since it can’t rally the support to outlaw guns across the nation, it will unilaterally buy all the ammunition casings so that no firearms ammunition can be made for civilians to purchase. For instance, along with many other types of ammunition, there essentially appears to be no .22 Long caliber rounds for sale anywhere in the Southwestern portion of the nation. The merchants selling these products all state that the shortage of ammunition for sale is because the Federal government has bought the nation’s entire supply of shell casings for whatever stated reason.
It seems that the government has determined there is more than one way to skin a cat when it comes to revoking any Constitutional Rights to bear arms – an enumerated power left to the American populace by the Nation’s Founding Fathers and a Right of which the current administration and its allies obviously don’t approve. Of course, as a self-professed Constitutionalist, I have previously blogged on this matter several times.
