Ammunition in short supply

Texas gun owners have struggled to find ammo amid an industry-wide shortage.

Gun enthusiasts started snatching up firearms all over the country after the presidential election.

That led to an industry-wide shortage in ammo.

Gun shop owners say the demand for ammo is stripping supply.

So much so, they're forced to take whatever they can get from their vendors.

So far no laws have been changed.

But lawmakers in a number of states, not including Texas, have proposed requiring identification codes on ammunition.

That will cause the price to go up according to gun shop owners who are trying to stock up on ammo now.
