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"...)

EL PASO, Texas- Questions about affairs, death and murder were all part of a fourth-grade reading assignment at Pasodale Elementary in the Lower Valley. One woman who did not want to show her face on camera told KFOX14 her son brought the assignment home because he was attending another tutoring session when his teacher passed it out. She is concerned other students completed the questions in class, so other parents could not stop them from reading it. "How is she grading it? Is she reading it?

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) is demanding answers from Attorney General Eric Holder on the Justice Department’s pursuit of “smart gun” technology, warning that the government could require all gun owners to wear biometric bracelets to operate their firearms. Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
