I was wondering how long it would be before gun manufacturers stopped selling to the government. Imagine if no one would sell bullets to cities and

This has been the result in central Texas; although the cause is market forces rather than policy.
The run on ammo (particularly specialized "military style" ammo) has meant that Swat teams and tactical types cannot buy supplies---the stores are
"out of stock."
I have heard workers at ammo retailer complain (while I was standing in line by the empty shelves) that the ATF is threatening to not allow
manufacturers to ship across state lines for the time being. No dealer wants to get a big shipment in, because if it is confiscated they will lose all
the money tied up in it.
That was several weeks ago, when the run on stores was peaking in TX (January 10 or so). I haven't been back to a store because I have all the ammo
I need now. At least wife says so.
Army surplus ammo cannister makes a fine ottoman; it's just too heavy to move by yourself.
