WATCH LIVE AT 3: WDBJ holds news conference after TV news crew fatally shot

Gun owners stockpiling ammo ahead of any federal law reform


President Obama’s promise to reform federal weapons laws in the wake of Newtown, has apparently created a run on gun and ammunition sales.

One store in Kansas City said it sold three and a half years of ammo in three days.

Experts said people are stockpiling ammunition ahead of any possible ban.

Hard to find items include bullets for semi-automatic guns and hunting rifles, as well as 30-round magazines.

“We have seen a lot of requests come in for ammunition,” Chris Coad said, who owns a Kansas gun shop. “People are wanting to buy it in the case quantity.”

“We have limited to an certain ammo, where they can only buy five boxes at a time.”
