As attacks on our Second Amendment rights increase, there is a predictable uptick in the number of internet rumors concerning firearms and ammunition. 

The latest rumor is actually a variation of an old one, and claims that George Soros owns "most of the ammunition manufacturing companies and many arms manufacturers," and that he's "selling ONLY to the government right now." 

This simply isn't true. Current ammunition shortages are driven by consumer demand, which has spiked due to the ongoing attacks on gun owners’ rights. To read a statement by the National Shooting Sports Foundation refuting this latest rumor, please click here.
