Ammunition shortage continues nationwide

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A national ammunition shortage continues following a spike in gun sales over the last three years.

Ammunition manufacturers are running at capacity to meet the demand.

The spike in ammo sales is attributed to the debate over gun laws in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut and at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.
