Buy Ammunition, Get A Little Visit

Gun sales going ballistic

Run of the mill ~increase in guns 'n ammo sales~ story from a New York site except for this little tidbit near the bottom:

"Everyone interviewed by The Post-Star for this story agreed ammunition of all calibers has gotten tougher to find, as gun owners stock up. Prices skyrocketed in recent years as metal prices went up, which caused many gun owners to stock up in anticipation of rising ammunition prices.
There are also concerns that some larger calibers, or those used by military-type weapons, could be banned, restricted or taxed more heavily.
One northern Warren County resident found out recently the government is paying attention to such ammunition sales.
West said a customer of his recently stocked up on .223-caliber rounds, a caliber often used in assault-style weapons. The customer bought 1,000 rounds a few months ago through a mail order company.
Shortly after the purchase, he received a visit from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, whose interest was apparently piqued by a large-scale purchase of that caliber

"His wife was home. He was at church," West said."
