With factories cranking out guns and ammo at 110% of capacity, how could a shortage currently exist? MASSIVE DEMAND.
Shortages… we Americans don’t really know what these are with the exception of the OPEC (maybe) induced gas shortages back in 1973 and again in ’79. I said “maybe” because I had a client who at the time owned a dozen supertankers; several were filled with oil sitting in the harbor and weren’t allowed to offload. Truly, we don’t know what it is to “want” and have never experienced “empty shelves” with the exception of the occasional hurricane or other natural event. Even so, goods would start to reappear within a week or so and the “shortage” would go away nearly as fast as it came.
