Last week I received a cryptic message in my inbox.

I love shooting. If I could spend every day at the range, I would. In the last month I’ve seen the shelves at the gun shop go bare in the AR department.

Facebook posts circulated around the Christmas holiday indicated one small Utah seller distributed more than 100,000 rounds in a single weekly order with one buyer taking 70,000 rounds to distribute among friends. The LA times reported that more than 3 ½ years of magazines were sold in one 72 hour period by Brownell’s, a top supplier of firearm accessories.
