Utah State Orem – Hundreds of people lined up to buy ammunition in a spectacle outside the gun store in Utah County.
This line extends all day on Saturday and is located at Gunnies at 396 South State Street in Orem.
Some even walked far to Kamas and waited for hours in the cold.
KSL-TV talked to many people-some said they came to supply ammunition, others were more anxious. They mentioned the current political events-general aviation runoff, the upcoming transfer of power, and the violence that occurred in the US Capitol on Wednesday. The people in the line also shouted: “Biden is going to take our gun.”
“There are people down here, 200 people line up before the store opens,”
Recently, the most popular ammunition is in short supply.
“It’s going fast because there is no one there,” Greer said.
The ammunition shortage began in late spring 2020, when the coronavirus transformed manufacturing.
Ammunition has been put on or off the shelves, but Gunney refilled AR-15 ammunition supply last Saturday.
Gun salesperson Chris Hansen said: “The perfect storm of gun supply.”
The masses began to provide help for the goods.
A Gunnies employee was unable to put ammunition on the shelf fast enough.
The worker said: “There are 1,000 bullets in this case.” “I have checked ten boxes in two hours.”
Since the store had seen money in the past, the items that customers can buy are restricted.
Hansen said: “On 223-556 where all of us are here today, we allow 200 bullets per customer.”
Gunney sales representatives said that they have seen some of the busiest days this year and added Shops are usually not as busy as this in January.
Hansen said: “We have witnessed a boom in guns and ammunition before-but never in January.” “Usually slowed down after Christmas, but this year is the opposite.”
They mentioned that when Obama was re-elected in 2008 in 2012, there were guns and ammunition running.
Those who lined up expressed different reasons.
Greer said: “As the new presidential palace changes, people are beginning to worry about their Second Amendment rights.” “That’s why you see so many here today.”
People come in and they are scared. They feel that they are under attack. “Gunney employee Josh Hansen (Josh Hansen) said. “They feel it is necessary to fight back, or at least to protect themselves. ”
According to US government experts, any proposed constitutional amendment must be passed by the Senate and Senate with a two-thirds majority. Then three-quarters of the 50 states (or 38 of them) need to ratify the treaty.
Historically, this has proven to be impossible and challenging.
In the history of the United States, the only amendment that has been repealed is the Prohibition Order.
