Raw Story

The world’s largest supplier of firearms on Thursday said that it had experienced “unprecedented” demand for AR-15 ammunition magazines after a similar weapon was used to slaughter 20 6- and 7-year-old children at a school in Connecticut.

In a statement on the AR15.com forum, Brownells spokesperson Jason Corpus apologized to customers for delays in fulfilling their orders of assault weapon clips.

It is specifically the shooting at Sandy Hook that has provided the impetus for this huge run on high-capacity magazines.
Corpus explained that the company’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) computer system had been flooded with orders after the tragedy in Connecticut.
As the national discussion proceeds in the shadow of Sandy Hook, expect these items and anything lse that is the focus of any sort of alteration in regulation to sell in record numbers.

Those who want thse things intend to stock up in order to have them AFTER a ban or prohibition, or regulation or law that changes one's ability to have or obtain them is discussed, let alone enacted.
