Ammunition and gun sales have soared in Great Falls, in the wake of the deadly school shooting in Newtown Conn., and are not slowing down.
Visit any store in Great Falls and you will be hard pressed to find 0.223 ammunition.
Mitchell Supply, Big R and Scheels all had very limited supplies and in some cases were completely sold out.
James Mitchell, owner of Mitchell Supply, said, “Basically prices are all over the board, because there is no availability.”
Mitchell Supply specializes in AR-15 type rifles, shooting accessories, and tactical gear, and he says he noticed the increase in demand right after Obama was re-elected, adding, “There’s not much hope of it getting better in the short term, just because a lot of it is hoarding. There are a lot of speculators buying ammunition in large amounts thinking that it is going to go up in price.”
Why the sudden increase in ammunition and firearms?
Mitchell believes the widespread fear is linked to increased gun control and possible gun ban, for the increase in sales.
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.
He also stated, “Guns are part of the Montana heritage, we hunt, we also shoot for recreation. We shoot for fun.”
