TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY RUNNING SHORT ON AMMO AS ELECTION NEARS!!!



Here's a not so fun fact that inspired TKC to buy an extra package of snack cakes at the store this afternoon so that there's no interruption in our sugary sweetness . . .

Breitbart: Nationwide Ammo Shortage as Americans Stock up amid Civil Unrest

Whilst our progressive friends may not trust this source, check Google for a ton of links confirming local shops across the nation biting the bullet when it comes to firearms and supplies. Topeka news confirms a shortage on guns & ammo. And a swing state gun shortage isn't very encouraging.

Accordingly, a denizen from our blog community shares this insider word . . .

TKC Reader: Another Sign This Election Will Be Close

While being very aware of the difference between correlation and causation, there’s an interesting trend going on. I ignore polls, and prefer to look at hard-cash movements revolving around consumer demand. Those involve real numbers and zero spin.

In this case . . . look at what’s going on with sales of guns and ammunition. And, how it potentially ties in with the narrative coming out of Republican campaigns.



The national press seems to downplay the impact of what appears to be the platform Trump (and others) will push until the election – civil unrest, rioting, law and order, etc. This is not surprising, seeing as how 95% of journalists are either full-throated liberals or lean left (heck, even Chris Wallace is a registered Democrat). They’re not going to promote a tactic that might be proving beneficial to the right.

But, if “law and order” isn’t something of a helpful message for the sitting Prez, then maybe the press should try and explain why virtually every store in the country (both retail and online) is undergoing the biggest ammo shortage the country has ever seen. It affects almost all calibers. Even the types of shotgun shells commonly used for self-defense - slugs and triple-ought buckshot - are nowhere to be found (you can buy bird shot . . . but that’s not anyone's choice for self defense).

Manufacturers say they are running at full capacity and beyond. And, because some ijit will undoubtedly make the claim, this isn’t a case of conspiracy theory. The government is not buying all the bullets. Manufacturers report it’s ALL retail and consumer demand.

There’s also a pretty huge shortage on guns. You can still buy a gun, but many of the popular self-defense weapons are back-ordered into infinity. Retail sales indicate the largest increase in gun purchases since reporting began . . . with most of the sales since March being first-time buyers. I suspect some are from liberals (who would never admit to owning a gun) but historically such purchases would be from moderates (aka: suburbanites) who are now terrified of the “peaceful protests."

In the two or three months since Trump has adopted the law and order message, Biden’s once huge lead has shrunk to numbers within the margin of error. While I’m not saying that gun and ammo sales point to a Trump win, I am saying he’s now got a message that resonates loudly, and one which the Democrats cannot poach due to their prior and very vocal support for protests.



I think this race is much closer than the polls and pundits on the national scene are leading us to believe . . .

I don't know what is going to happen and I pray for peace. But I think when history looks back on this they might see that it was the "progressives" who started the violent protest.

Again, my hope is that we realize that we're all Americans and that peace in our country and the world is more important than winning political office.

Very hopeful, it's probably not going to work out like that.

And yet there's no shortage at my place. Weird.

There has always shortages on ands off for years. A few years ago it was .22 cal, a rabbit round, yes its a rabbit and squirrel bullet. Due to covid more people are staying on the range or farm and shooting for fun. So there is a shortage due to them being used up for fun shooting. Nobody is buying hundreds of bullets for civil unrest. All you need is 5 shotgun shells, if you fire those at criminals they will flee and not come back. There is not going to be a 20 day running gun battle in the streets as some people claim. Plus you can only shoot 1 gun at a time. You dont need 20 guns to defend yourself. The average gun fight has 3 bullets shot total.

Ammo makers manipulate the market and claim copper shortages then raise ammo prices. They have billions of bullets in the warehouses. ATK here in town makes millions of rounds a day at Lake City Ammo plant. Are millions shot each day - no. There is a glut. A hidden glut. Its about jacking up prices. Plenty of guns for sale too - visit any shop - Glocks galore! Shotguns everywhere!

Bandit said...

Libtard Demonrats generate more gun sales than they NRA ever has. Thanks guys!

George Soros has purchased all the bullets so regular Americans cannot have them. Why i dont know,. He dumped them into the ocean on Virginia Beach. Why?

Most sporting goods store shelves are cleaned out of ammo.

There are a ton of guns and ammo in Americans hands as the Media and Marxist Democrat Party ( controlled by BLM) has pushed the U.S. to the brink of Civil War in an attempt to seize control of the Presidency.

Democrat Party Mayors will not let the police stop rioters so every American has armed themselves for protection.

I Love Kansas City said...

It'll be fine. And the election isn't that close.

The people who horde guns and ammo are ALWAYS wrong. They're just trying to make themselves feel safe from the fear that's in their own head.

The progressives and Biden aren't coming for you. That's just a campaign trick. Just like Trump getting elected wouldn't be the end of the world.

It's okay to by cynical about all of the news. They're just in it for ratings and subscriptions. Don't let hype or fear control you.

Hording is never a good idea and rarely helps people in a real crisis.

Be calm, be confident, and don't let anybody scare you, you're an American.

DUH I would be worried if ammo in KC wasn't in short supply. Lock and Load everyone because you know crap is going to hit the fan soon no matter who wins. What I think is sad is the people with kids in the city that's not good.

The local politicians are guilty and the cities with the violence are run by the Dems. They are desperate but, in the end, they will lose. Most people sick and tired of Antifa and BLM and despite what our fine media covers, the Feds are starting to pummel these idiots. Once these pukes are Federally charged there ain’t no coming back. Facial recognition and following money trails are easy. Won’t be anyplace these cowards can run except to prison and Trump is making room for them.

9:12 is an idiot drinking too much cool-aid and looking through rose colored glasses. Indeed, regardless of who wins, the antifa and blm assholes will not be satisfied until the hammer and sickle fly over our capitol. Then they will eat their own. Don't be fooled by his/her suggestion to be calm. This will be the most important election in your/our lives, but the violence seed has been deeply planted, so if you are not prepared, your problem. To say the "progressives", should they win, are not coming for (your guns) you is delusional. It will be at the top of their agenda. An unarmed populace is necessary for complete control. They may not have folks knocking on hour door to confiscate, but through taxation and other onerous legislation simply make it too expensive or burdensome to own a firearm. Watch your six.

Walmart and other stores cut back on ammo offerings for sale. But gun shops have plenty of ammo and guns. I was at 2 of them today. Plus you can go to midwestguntrader and see many Kansas/Missouri guns for sale. or go to gunbroker.com, the online site for dealers - probably 100,000 guns for sale tonight. Or Bud's gun shop has a online website. Yes a perfect WWI P-08 Luger with special holster is rare. But there are MORE GUNS THAN PEOPLE in the USA! And the military has millions in stockpile from WWII just sitting in storage! And you can make a gun off a PC printer too!

Anonymous said...

More "cutting edge journalism" from Breitbart - the ammo shortage is what, five months old now?

And the logic of "another Civil War" is just a bit flawed, there might be a small squall if Trump is defeated and refuses to leave, but the extremists on either side are too few to actually accomplish anything.

And remember, your AR15 clone won't do much good when the tanks roll in.

Besides, your on-line ammo hoarding has been tracked, and the harvest will begin if there is any true Civil Unrest.
All you've done is make yourselves targets.
Oh, and "from your cold, dead hands" is just fine with everybody.

a .22 cal round can also shatter the back window of a Saab.

Anonymous said...

It's quite real. Ammunition is like toilet paper. It comes in and is quickly scarfed up at 2-3 times the usual price. 9mm range rounds are now .50 a round, IF you can find them. BUT, it's not the usual "gun nuts". Most of them already have thousands of rounds and aren't paying these prices, at least the ones I know. This is first time buyers/shooters. I find it most interesting that one of the hardest things to find is .38 rounds. Few serious gun owners or concealed carry folks are using .38s or any wheel gun for that matter. Some are of course and I see articles singing their praises, but nowadays it's all about capacity and 6 shooters are a thing of the past. Who's buying all this .38 ammo? Libs and former anti-gunners who are digging their fathers' old gun out of the attic, that's who. I've had half a dozen such people hit me up for shooting lessons, but I don't have enough .38 ammo to teach them. Several opted to go buy 9mm handguns which are available, although the popular concealed carry models can require a wait (for availability). But, I've hit my limit on how much of that ammo I'm willing to part with at this point. It's a clear sign that people are scared. People no longer have any confidence in the cops to be there when they are needed. People no longer have any faith in their local gov'ts and with good reason. What libs have done to America is despicable. Only a fool would vote for the party that has been willing to do all of this to a nation they claim they love.

Internal polls show Biden with a big win. 2020 is different than 2016. No third party. Mail in voting. Huge black turnout for Biden. Trump will give up on Pennsylvania and Michigan early. All Biden needs is Wisconsin where he is running strong. Biden will outspend trump 3-1 maybe 4-1 in final month as Biden reels in 300 plus million in September and October. Arizona and Georgia in play. Arizona goes blue with Kelly win. Cohen book means nothing in race but Woodwards book is key to Biden victory. Coronavirus will hurt nation and economy for years to come. Families struggling with school issues a big part of Bidens plan. Families will not forgive Trump for witholding covid info. Next...the house and senate.

@9:12 - Bahahahahaha !

Not worried about Joe Biden; he will be cowering in his basement when the ANTIFA and BLM folks start burning down the cities.

This is why the police (with oversight) should be allowed to do their jobs.

They are trained professionals and if the police are allowed to do their jobs they can maintain order.

Now with the police hog-tied by Democrat Party mayors and activists; there's going to be a bunch of rioters and then vigilantes which is not good for society.

Let the police do their jobs Mayor Lucas.

The only people scared are the despicable dimwits, they’re too big of pussies to own a gun so they hire left wing nut jobs to kill people for them. Just look at Chicago, Portland, Seattle. All dimwit run cities are full of murderous blacks and left wing nut jobs. The facts speak for themselves.

All of the problem areas are in cities that have been run by Democrats forever because they let the porch monkeys and spoiled white brats run wild. Those places deserve the cultural rot that they festered.

7:03, I've carried a little S&W .38 on my person for years. It's a good starter gun for people especially women. Probably explains the shortage. Also, some would argue a revolver is more reliable than some of the cheap/small 9mm. If you're not efficient with guns and need a reliable shooter, a wheel gun works. Yes, capacity is limited but rarely are you going to shoot more than five rounds for home/personal defense. You can go to gunbroker and find ammo. Yes, you'll pay more but it's there for the getting; if you just need enough ammo to keep your skills sharp at the range a few times a year it's not a big deal.

Well, no.

Biden's cognitive decline becomes more obvious by the day. There's the same 'holding your nose' attitude about the ticket as was present with Hillary but worse. No one is inspired or especially motivated unless it's out of sheer hatred for Trump. The Dems have been branded as the party of the riots and BLM, which hurts them everywhere. Black voters are going Trump more than ever. Trump's poll mumbers continue to climb, now they're almost at pre COVID levels. No one gives a damn about any of the hit piece books or faux scandals, but they do care about their cities burning--the Dems have been extremely tardy in addressing this and it will cost them. Coronavirus is essentially over, and more and more people want to identify with confidence rather than fear. The Democrat politicization of the virus becomes increasingly apparent, and key incidents like Pelosi's hair salon and Biden's come-and-go mask mandate are not helpful. Trump has always had the initiative and he still has it.

I am running out of ammo and no doubt, will need some more.

The Jewish BLM/AntiFa thugs that I shot, were only a drop in the bucket. There are tens of thousands of seditious killers, looters and arsonists to go.

Please encourage all retailers to ramp up production of ammo and ordnance so that I and many like minded soldiers in this conflict, can defend our cities, states and this country from the Marxist/Communist/DNC Fascists that seek our destruction.

Thanks and God Bless America

7:47 is nuts.

The demographics of the polls are showing Trump is picking up voters he did not pick up in 2016.

The only way Biden wins is if the Democrats fix the mail-in ballots which is a real concern in the major cities.

The Democrat Party will commit voter fraud with the thought of the end justifies the means to grab power.

QUINTON LUCAS FLIP-FLOPPING ON THE PETE MUNDO SHOW...AGAIN!

Making his regular Thursday appearance to take credit for the positives and shirk responsibility for the negatives, Lucas does what he does best...talk, talk, talk, without saying anything pertinent.

On the topic of coronavirus, Lucas blames the White House and Coronavirus Task Force for the blunders that he and fake-Dr. Archer imposed upon KC business.

That's rather odd, because Lucas/Archer have been voicing their belief that President Trump can't be trusted or believed, ever since he got elected 4 years ago! Archer publicly stated that the President should be incarcerated for life. Yet, these 2 clowns try to shift the blame for THEIR decisions onto the President? That makes absolutely no sense, but keep in mind that Lucas/Archer are low-IQ municipal bureaucrats feeding at the taxpayer trough, keeping themselves fat and stupid while asking residents to go without.

If they are political they are working towards inflicting the maximum amount of damage to the elected Prez, no question. If they are only trying to save people why are they operating in a political action. Mundo is trying to play a pandering millennial, "right" just enough to get some ears, but left in many of his other statements.

The little J-frame .38 S&W are for expert shooters. They are hard to control, even in .38 cal, much less in .357 mag. New buyers please avoid them. Get a LCP in .380 or .22 as I dont want you to miss a perp and hit an innocent person. I will continue to carry my Glock 29 in 10mm as always. But shoot a few hundred rounds thru a gun before buying. .38 is not made much anymore as 9mm is so popular. So .38 is scarce. A little .25, .380 or .22 is a good beginners caliber. perps dont know what cal you have, so anything you shoot scares them!
