An ammunition shortage occurs when demand greatly outpaces supply. This can be due to panic buying, war, or other spikes in demand.
The election of Bill Clinton in 1992 and Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 and 2012, along September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, mass murders in liberal gun free zones and the threat of ammunition control from the police state have been responsible for major ammunition shortages. During these shortages, the price of ammunition can double in only a few weeks as ordinary American citizens begin to stock up on ammo.
People often prepare in advance by purchasing a box or two of ammunition whenever they visit their local Walmart or gun store. Bulk purchasing is much cheaper online or from gun shows.
