You aren't the only one having trouble buying ammo

WALLINGFORD, CT - FEBRUARY 24: A shooitng target is full of bullet holes at a class taught by King 33 Training at a shooting range on February 24, 2013 in Wallingford, Connecticut. King 33 Training, a company that trains and educates individuals on the safe and proper use of guns and other uses of protective force, offers classes to marksmen of all levels. The Connecticut company offers training for clients interested in maintaining a safe environment for themselves, their families, and those around them. Connecticut, home to a number of gun manufactures including Colt Defense, is a state with conflicting views on guns and gun ownership. Currently the state has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation and its current governor Daniel Malloy is pushing for tougher measures following the shootings at the Sandy Hook School.

With the threat of increased gun control laws, there's been a run on guns and ammunition across the country, making it more difficult for gun owners to get their hands on some new brass. But don't think they're the only ones being affected by such changes. As it turns out, local police departments are also struggling to scrounge up ammunition for their on-duty officers.

Last month, we reported that a growing number of gun manufacturers were refusing to sell weapons and ammunition to states and municipalities enacting strict gun control laws. Police in Oklahoma have reported a widespread ammo shortage.  Might this market pressure have anything to do with the current shortage in Phoenix, Arizona?
