Desperate Measures Firearms "Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures"Lets face it, we live in uncertain times. There has been a massive shortage of firearms and ammunition attributed to many factors, including pandemic-era supply chain disruptions, the bankruptcy of major supplier Remington in 2020, the massive amount of new gun owners in the last year, and the resulting surge in demand. Additionally, during the pandemic, a lot of people decided they wanted to buy and use guns, either for hunting or personal protection. The 12 million new gun owners, plus existing activity, meant that the firearm industry has experienced a huge surge in demand. The result has been a shortage of firearms and ammunition, and higher prices. Additionally, the surges in U.S. firearm sales have been driven by events sparking fears of impending gun-control legislation.
