With President Gun-Grabber, Joe “Shooting for Tuesday” Biden and DiFi pushing for new firearm restrictions, inauguration weekend was more about empty shelves than empty promises for gun enthusiasts. For more than a month, Twitchy has been reporting on long lines at gun stores, surging NRA membership and record crowds at gun shows.
As Obama celebrated his second inauguration, ammunition was increasingly hard to come by in the nation’s chain stores and mom-and-pop shops. Academy Sports is limiting some ammo purchases to one box per customer.
I just left Academy Sports. Only able to buy 1 box of each caliber ammo. Only one AR-15 left in the store bought by a friend of mine.

Good mass today. Then a quick stop by Academy Sports to purchase my one box per caliber ammunition per day limit. Reminds me of rationing.

I saw this coming about a year ago. @wyona440:Ammo impossible to find; Academy rules one box of bullets allowed per purchase, when in stock.

But finding even one box of some types of ammo is proving difficult. More evidence of the only successful Obama stimulus:
Frustrating I can’t find ammo anywhere. @academy and Dick’s were cleaned out. I guess gun owners are in a frenzy. No range anytime soon

Empty ammo shelves at Cabela’s. Not one AR-15 on the shelves either. Happy Inauguration Day. twitter.com/caseywmoore/st…

Even online retailers are unable to keep up with demand.

Ammo shortage? Shoppers have a pretty good idea about who built that.
There’s no ammo left in this town! Thanks Mr President…
