Walmart limits sales of

Walmart has started to limit sales of ammunition to three boxes per customer per day due to limited supplies, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday. Sales of guns and ammunition have risen across the United States since the Dec. 14 shooting at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school. Walmart U.S., is the largest unit of Wal-Mart Stores Inc the world’s largest retailer and the largest U.S. gun seller. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based retailer had said that it works to strike the right balance between serving hunters and sportsmen and ensuring that it sells firearms responsibly.

Are they limiting the sale of cigarettes to one pack per person per day?

Three boxes of ammunition, if you are talking standard centerfire ammo, is approximately 60 rounds.

Who shoots more than 60 rounds at any one time? People who shoot at pistol & rifle ranges, skeet, etc.

Your typical thug/gangbanger will usually shoot somehing less than 15 rounds - if they actually fire - while committing a crime.

So, who does this ultimately harm? The "sportsmen & sportswomen" the gun grabbers and politicians claim they have every understanding and sympathy for.

I´m currently behing enemy lines. At one time when it was possible to "buy it cheap and stack it deep" I might have bought a few thousand rounds of various centerfire ammo. Why? Because it´s less expensive that way, especially when the typical trip to the range means 200-300 rounds going down range.

I´m glad I bought as much as I did, when I did. I hope others were able to do the same.

This is actually a good idea and will serve the gun community well. In this manner people who want ammo have a chance to get some, instead of one person with a shopping cart and a lot of money.

Carter gave us gas rationing and long gas lines.
Obama brings ammo rationing and long lines at the gun shops/shows.

This is oblamer´s fault, pure and simple. People are in panic buying mode creating runs on ammo as soon as it hits the shelves.

Maybe now I´ll have a chance of finding something worthwhile on the shelves. The last couple of times I´ve been to a wally world looking for ammo the display case has resembled Old Mother Hubbard´s cupboard.

One of the reasons is that they can´t keep any ammo on their shelves otherwise. Academy is limiting to ONE box per day of to popular calibers (.308, .223, .45, .380, .30-06, 9mm, 10mm, .22 and 7.62x39) because otherwise it is completely gone off the shelves within two hours after a truck has brought in new stock. A lot of that was the gun show dealers buying them out and then scalping them at the next gun show. BTW - if you shoot something other than those calibers, you can buy all they have on the shelf. If I had a 45-70, I´d be able to get all I need. Same for .38 special, .17, .270, .22/250, and some others. Just about any load of 12 gauge you want (buckshot is kind of depleted) and 20 gauge, but for some reason .410 is hard to find. I even saw some 28 gauge on the shelf. Who the heck shoots 28 gauge???

Haven´t seen any 10 gauge in years. Academy has gone up on the prices some, but WalMart has not, as far as I can tell.

I don´t see an immediate problem here since their shelves are bare of ammo except for a few boxes of oddball calibers and the local clerk said they don´t have any ammo shipments scheduled.

This is not news. Its exactly what happened the last time, in 2008. Most shops locally including the Mom and Pop independents are limiting sales to 3 or perhaps a little more, to ensure that no one buys in bulk to re-sell and everyone can at least get some.

Limiting customers to 3 boxes per-person, per-day doesn´t sound excessively restrictive. But, of course, the proverbial "camel´s nose under the tent" HAS to seem like no threat at all in order to be allowed to be there... so as a warning volley, this IS cause for alarm.

Rations...had to start somewhere. What about those stores close to gun clubs and ranges? Same restrictions? We´ve a new Gun Club opening in Frisco, Texas. Will the Walmarts in the area only be able to sell 3 boxes per day per customer?

There weren´t three boxes to be had of .22 ammo at our Wal-Mart. At the gun stores, they´re rationing it. We bought some crappy Mexican .22 ammo, which was a waste of $.

#1 ("Are they limiting the sale of cigarettes to one pack per person per day?")

If the gubmint starts tracking and limiting sales of ammo (like they do for Sudafed), that would be a serious issue. What Walmart is doing here seems consistent with quantity limits on special sale items, to prevent any customer from hogging all the merchandise. (How many commercials for freebie promotional stuff end with something like "limit, two per household"...)

- As promised on Monday, the Justice Department today released its new criteria for inmates who want their prison sentences reduced. Deputy Attorney General James M.

He also replaced the Bush administration appointee who heads DOJ´s Pardons office.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- A Fort Carson commander who wasn´t allowed to leave for Afghanistan with his troops last month was suspended over allegations that he was insensitive to victims of sexual assault and discrimination, a newspaper reported Tuesday. The details were reported in The Gazette (http://bit.ly/1k3YHKd) based on a 361-page investigative report it obtained under the Federal Freedom of Information Act. It provided the first account the Army has released about the suspension of Col. Brian Pearl and offers a view into how sensitive the issue of sexual assault has become for the Army.

Construction workers at companies doing work for the federal government are paid as much as three times what their peers outside of government get for the same work, a Washington Examiner review of federal statistics found. Pipefitters in Laredo, Texas, for example, can usually expect to make around $11.47 hourly, but if working on a federal contract, they must be paid at least $36.49, plus benefits. Window installers in New York City make $18.87 an hour in the market -- that´s the median salary, including industry veterans -- yet the government requires those doing that work for it in the

TOKYO — President Obama stepped off Air Force One in Japan apparently with an appetite for sushi. After a quick refresh at the Hotel Okura near the U.S. Embassy, Obama joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for dinner at a tiny sushi shop in the city’s Ginza neighborhood. They were joined by U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, the White House said. The restaurant — Sukiyabashi Jiro — has earned a rare three-star Michelin rating. Its owner and master chef, 89-year-old Jiro Ono, was featured in the 2011 documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” Many regard

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
