Elmore’s Firearms owner Jason Elmore told the Indianapolis Business Journal for a story Monday that he’s facing trouble getting some weapons and ammunition for his Greenwood store.
“We’re starting to get shortages of stuff again, so it’s pushed people into a supply-and-demand situation,” Elmore said. “They’re just buying whatever they can buy right now.”
FBI reports show that in 2007 it received about 187,000 criminal background requests on potential buyers from Indiana gun sellers. That has grown to nearly 346,000 last year, nearly double the levels before Obama took office.
The surge hasn’t ended, as February saw 45,553 requests for Indiana background checks, up from 32,083 in the same month a year earlier.
