Sadly, during more than stressful times -- like this one with the governing elites and their sycophants in the media -- try to rip more liberties from us in their quest for a peaceful, compliant society the rumor mills spin into overtime. Fear mongering and weaving false stories to gain recognition and or support only serve to reinforce the wannabe dictators in the eyes of the general sheeple.

People should keep their mouths shut, and their keyboards inactive unless they have real, verifiable information to pass on.

The treason is going to be epic...

[i][b]The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control[/b], Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.[/i]

Lock and loaded.

Even in publishing the denial, I don't sense the writer of the story fully understands that there's a national shortage of ammo. Even Walmart can't just pick up the phone, and have a truck arrive at the store next day. The customers cited in the story don't seem to understand that supplies have been stripped. As much as they want to, sellers can't get the ammo to sell.

As the Dorito's ad said, "Crunch all you want. We'll make more."

They are lying. Several friends who work at various Walmarts are getting the same story: Corp has put a hold on new ammo orders. Some get differing reasons but the fact is Walmart has no plans to restock.

Mike,

I just received a return call from my local Wal-Mart regarding my attempts to verify this story.

The manager didn't stop at a denial of any cutoff, he also went so far as to explain how the story got started.

Apparently, since the distribution centers have been having so much trouble getting ammo, they've told the stores not to place orders in the system for customers and thus clog the system. Instead, they are trying to buy all the ammo they can and promising to divide it up evenly among the stores.

Hope this helps.

I was in the local Wal Mart on Sunday the 6th. They were out of pretty much all ammo except for some .22 short/CB rounds. Yesterday, I checked out the ammo cases and with the exceptions of .22LR and .223 the shelves were stocked again. So I don't know how much truth I put behind this "hold".
