While questions continue to swirl about the Department of Homeland Security’s huge ammo buying spree, Americans are finding it increasingly difficult to obtain firearms, with backlogs surging despite Sturm, Ruger gun shipments surpassing 500,000 for the first time in history.

“America is weaponizing itself at an unheard of pace, with both Sturm, Ruger shipments and units produced surpassing 500,000 each in one quarter for the first time in history,” reports Zero Hedge.

Figures show that units produced and shipped by the company have gone beyond 1 million a quarter for the first time ever.

There is also a 2 million backlog on guns on order, a 100% increase from a year ago and a 40% increase on the previous quarter.

As we previously reported, demand is so high that customers are not even waiting for gun stores to stock shelves before purchasing ammunition and firearms.

There are even reports of customers waiting outside for trucks to arrive in an attempt to purchase ammunition before it is even offloaded.

Gun stores across the nation are beginning to resort to bullet rationing in an attempt to satisfy as many customers as they can, while some police departments are being forced to barter between themselves to meet demand.

In the midst of all this, the Department of Homeland Security continues to be under scrutiny for its huge ammunition buys, with the Government Accountability Office announcing that an investigation of the purchases is “just getting underway.”

Explanations for why Americans continue to seek out guns and ammunition at breakneck speed range from concerns about the Obama administration’s strict gun control agenda in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings, to the possibility that domestic unrest could be right around the corner.
