All out of ammo: US cops can't stay stocked up as gun and bullet sales soar

Quote:A spike in gun and ammunition sales has caused a nationwide shortage that has delayed police training exercises and is putting a substantial amount of weaponry in civilian hands.

Police in Atlanta, Georgia have been forced to delay training exercises due to a shortage of ammunition. The police department has put orders for more bullets on back-order, while officers are being deprived of the training that makes them capable of handling weapons.

“When you can't get ammunition, it is very concerning,” Sandy Springs Police Chief Terry Sult tells WSBTV. “It affects our ability to be prepared. It affects the potential safety of the officers, because they're not as proficient as they should be.”

The Sandy Springs Police Department is facing a shortage of tens of thousands of bullets and is scrambling to restock. The neighboring counties are facing an equally dire situation, with both practice ammunition and duty ammunition in short supply. Douglas County Chief Deputy Stan Copeland predicts it could be 6-8 months before the back-orders come in.

“We're going to get very concerned at the six-month level if that's all we have in stock, because then we have to start planning and rationing,” Sult says.

Local ammunition suppliers are attributing the shortage to the spike in gun and ammunition purchases by civilians after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting sparked debate on tighter gun control regulations.

This is the first time in my life where I've seen and heard multiple people talking about taking up arms against the government.
The internet is thick with it. Not condoning it at all, violence is never a solution but admittedly it seems to be headed in that direction.
Never have I seen the States so polarized.

hug.gif Yup, I do believe this is all headed toward an orchestrated collapse. Americans must be disarmed prior to taking it down.
I've read this from several sources on the net, including a few outspoken members of gov't speaking off the record.
Is any of it true?
One supposed insider said he saw a map of the US that had 2015 at the top with all borders removed from Canada all the way to Mexico. dunno.gif

Buy up all the ammo and then proclaim the gun "problem" is so out of control that the police can't get ammo. The only way to fix this is to ban guns...


Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Sheriffs CAN Block Federal Gun Control

A high-profile former sheriff who once sued the U.S. government over its gun regulations – and won – says it is the local sheriff who will have to defend Americans when and if the feds starting banning and confiscating guns.


Not without ammo they won't coffeetime.gif

Seems like this whole deal is not so much about gun control as polarizing the situation and creating conflict. 13.gif

Good morning Shadow! hug.gif
spock.gif fascinating. The other thing is I look for UN troops to be brought in to enforce this, police are not going to do this and ditto for the military.
BTW, I predicted an EO would be req'd. for this and Uncle Joe fulfilled my prophesy - since I'm batting a thousand I figure I'll really go out on a limb and throw the UN thing out there.
I also predicted John Kerry would be the next Sec of State when 0b4m4 was promoting Rice. blink.gif Once you get their number, outcomes are a piece of cake, and the sheep go... how surprising. 15.gif
