Top Story – Why Are All The Guns Sold Out And Hard To Find?

Gun ammunition

As more and more disasters happen, it seems as though everybody has a different reaction. Some people are working harder than ever to get their concealed weapons permit, and get the best protection for themselves. Others are looking towards the government to regulate and take away certain weapons.

No matter which side you fall upon, it is hard not to notice the drop in availability of guns around certain areas of the country. This begs the question: why are guns becoming so hard to find? And why do the production companies not just make more?

Increase purchases

There are certain circumstances that increase sales within the public. Justin Bieber claims to like a certain brand of clothing, and pretty soon all teenagers are sporting the same logos.

When Hostess shut down, people clamored to buy out every store of their Twinkies and Ding-Dongs. I have friends who went and fought their way through the chaos to buy the last few boxes of Twinkies. Their plan was to sell them on eBay after some time had passed, hoping to make some money off of them.

Unfortunately for my friends, the Twinkies brand will be bought by another company, and sold under a different logo than Hostess. They might get a little extra cash for the Hostess brand, but nowhere near what they would have gotten if that was the last day a Twinkie would ever be produced. The same type of thing is happening now, except with firearms.

My brother-in-law is all about guns and the right to own them. He attends gun shows, and proudly carries with his concealed weapons permit wherever he can. When there were questions about the future of firearms, he made sure to purchase the gun he wanted as soon as possible. He wanted to make sure and have what he wanted before he could no longer buy it.

People are nervous about the legislation some government officials are pushing for. There is such a wide spectrum of opinions; it is hard to know exactly what is going to happen in the future with availability. There are people buying guns for every reason, whether it is for protection, or to exercise your right to carry. This is causing a huge demand for something that has a limited supply.

Regulations

In certain states the regulations are getting stricter. It is preventing the way gun manufacturers look into the future for producing their line of firearms. If the regulations are set in place, the gun manufactures will have to discontinue at least a part of their products.

By their logic, there is no reason to beef up the means of production for a line that will be short lived. The gun manufacturers are keeping at their normal pace in anticipation of the changing rules, despite increased interest by the public.

No matter which side of the gun law debate you fall on, there is no denying that changes are happening in the way guns are bought and distributed. There are people trying to make changes within the industry, some in favor, others against. No matter your opinion, it is best to be informed on the changes that are happening, and learn how they directly influence your life.
