American gun enthusiasts have been hard hit by the ammunition shortage that has spread across the United States this year. The hardest-to-get item is the “brick” of .22 caliber bullets that packs 500 rounds in a box.
Visit any gun store and you will be hard pressed to find .22 caliber ammunition.
Dave Simpson, president of the Great Falls Shooting Sports Complex, said ammunition “availability is limited, although regionally it tends to vary.”
He agreed that the popular .22 LR (long rifle) caliber is essentially impossible to find.
Jim Mitchell, owner of Mitchell Supply, said the shortage has hit most of the basic calibers at his firearms shop the whole year. “It’s not getting any better,” he said.
Why the sudden increase in ammunition and firearms?
Mitchell blames gun legislation in some states, particularly a bill in California that would require individuals pass a background check, get a permit and pay a fee to purchase ammunition. He surmised that the bulk of the ammunition supply is in California where gun owners are buying it up in anticipation of that control.
The planet Uranus is now in the sign of Aries. Uranus is about emancipation from rules and structure that inhibit us and looks for revolutionary new ideas. Aries is the sign of instinct, adventure and rules warfare and the tools of warfare.
During this Uranus Aries transit there will be an increase in arms investments, gun ownership, and gun rights will be in the forefront.
The coming Uranus square Pluto, will also bring social chaos and upheaval, the right to own and bear arms will be seen as a given right, and we will see guns carried in public.
To Mitchell, guns are a way of life – and a right that should remain uncontested within the fabric of American society.
