what's up with the government buying up ammo.
22Long?

When will the ammo be in stores?

Guess we will not need our guns if the ammo is not out there to buy?

POPE will be Muslin friendly? What does this mean for our Country?

So many questions and not many answers?

Whenever there is a big controversy about guns, like after a mass shooting, or a change in gun laws or public perception toward guns, Wal-Mart removes some ammo from their stores, including .22, which is the most common ammunition in the world. It will be back in stock when the Walton family lets them sell it again.

The U.S. military often uses .22LR for training new recruits on the M-16. It is far cheaper than .223.

You should have bought more ammo, since you ran out. Hard to fathom, since .22LR is sold in 550 round boxes for less than $20.

You can be friendly toward someone yet still believe they are going to Hell.

Doesn't mean a thing for 'our country' one way or the other.

Wally World makes their own decision, since they are owned by the Walton family, not by the USA.

The US military has used .22LR for training new recruits since the 1970's.

The Pope, when there is one, is neither Christian nor American. For differences between Catholics and Christians use Google. For differences between American and Italian use an atlas.

None of the companies want to get caught with a load of ammo if the gun laws tighten up.

walley mart is not the only store out of ammo.
academy, gun shops, etc
the stores want the ammo and as the get it in it flies off the shelves. there are lines in austin, houston before the stores open. they run out with each shipment.
we need to get our heads out of the sand. this is real.

No ones stopping the sale of bullets. It's simply people that are caught up in the conspiracy theories that are causing the panic.
Then they're panicking more when ammunition gets short supply.
Governments not buying them up.
Whats wrong with being Muslim friendly, Muslim un-friendly hasn't been doing too well.

I bought a box of 380 shells at Academy. They were $35 dollars for 50 shells. Nearly stroked!
