AR-15 magazines are allegedly out of stock nationwide. PMAGs are reportedly even more difficult to find in the ammunition selling frenzy of recent weeks. Concerns that the public outcry to ban semiautomatic weapons or attach an additional tax to gun and ammo purchases is credited for the massive buying both at stores and online.
The PMAG, which routinely sells for about $15, is out of stock, and at least one national retailer is venting his frustration about the current gun ownership climate, The Gateway Pundit notes. Beneath the product description of the PMAG out of stock notice on the Urban ERT Slings, LLC website, an excerpt from the open letter reads:
“Political Correctness is the catalyst that is bringing this country down! So you better start pushing back, get in their faces, use their tactics of VOLUME, PROXIMITY, AND REPETITION! Below is how we and many of our customers that have supported us over the last 12 years feel as we are Law Abiding Citizens, Current and Former Military, Current and Former Law Enforcement Officers, and always True American Patriots and Defenders of the Constitution of these United States of America. It was written in plain English with No Need for interpretation. That is how intelligent our Founding Fathers were. They knew it would be skewed and twisted. Read the federalist papers. We are disgusted not only by the lunatics that perpetrate these heinous crimes, but are also equally as disgusted by the hypocritical lunatic statists, leftists, Marxists, communists, and socialists that continue to do everything in their power to which they have obtained through means of deception and massive unchecked voter fraud with the culpable assistance of the media at large I might add.”
While the AR-15 magazines might be out of stock for awhile, gun owners are experiencing only empty shelves when seeking many other types of ammunition as well. The uncertain political climate surrounding the gun control and gun rights debate may well mean that ammo will be in high demand for the foreseeable future.
The most recent episode of Doomsday Preppers on National Geographic showcased a man who will probably never be without a full clip. The episode segment which featured Bryan Smith showcased how homemade ammo will help the entrepreneur thrive if life as we know it suddenly disappears. Smith reportedly spent more than $100,000 on an ammo making assembly line in his home, the Huffington Post notes.
