I heard ammo can not be sold after June 30 2009. Is this true? If not, what is going to happen to ammo availability?

    About March 17, 2009 I contacted Congressman John Boozmans Office. What I was told there is no legislation on the Federal level at this time, only at the state level. Below is the web site I was to refer to for what is going on. Also what I was told where there is heavy hunting, this should not pass. Also Congressman John Boozman is with the 2nd Amendment group and opposes any legislation of this type period! http://www.ammunitionaccountability.org/Legislation.htm Also at that time I emailed Federal Cartridge Company and they said the shortage was due to Government Contracts.

    I believe Federal, and any other cartridge co. about Gov. contracts, people scrounging ammo shelves out of fear etc. We sure can't expect them to retool to make more ammo and then when things calm down what are they stuck with? Over-capacity. It's tough right now, but the ammo companies I don't blame.

    My state legislators in my area have expressed to me that they will not support any 2nd Amendmant or anti-hunting measures. That said, the Governor does not side with Gunners or Sportsman, so i'm actively writing letters, both by email and by post. Making phonecalls too.

    I emailed my representative in the state legislature and he assured me that even though it has been brought up in previous sessions, it has never been put to a vote due to the lack of support. Of course,

      Find out who your state legislators are and write them, email them and call them. Tell them this is a backdoor and bogus approach at limiting ammunition to law abiding citizens and sportsmen. We will not stand for this kind of legislation.
      To be safe, if you don't have much ammo, buy as much as you can now.

                        Whatever you do, Do Not go out and purchase 375,000,000 rounds in all the calibers you like. There are actually federal limits as to how much ammo you can have in stock, I don't know the exact amount, but more than 2 pounds of black powder and you need a federal powdermans license and special storage requirements (or you could loose it all!) BP is explosive after all! Too much unsecured is a hazard to your loved ones (if you have any). It does no good to keep arms to protect your family if you blow them up yourself because you are an idiot!
