As Twitchy reported earlier, Jen Psaki assured us that President Joe Biden has been on top of the baby formula shortage for months now, even though deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters just yesterday there was no “point-person” heading up the response. Filipkowski thought it would be a great idea to bring guns into the equation, although we’d not that there never seems to be supply chain issues for birth control pills or condoms either.
There never seems to be supply chain issues for firearms.

Wrong. Now do ammo.

Not really. I’m a leftist who also owns firearms. There have been huge supply chain issues for ammunition for years. And when I say huge, I mean you couldn’t find 9mm ammo anywhere for 2 years.

Tell me you haven’t bought ammo in the past 2 years without telling me you haven’t bought ammo in the past 2 years.

Apparently you don't buy firearms or keep up with their markets. Because, they did have supply issues due to the high demand – by both left and right. That is what happens when one party likes to allow crimes to occur with impunity.

There’s been a shortage on ammo since the start of the pandemic.

Tell me you've never tried to buy a gun without telling me you've never tried to buy a gun.
Haven't been able to find ammo for my .308 for almost two years.

Try to find some ammo

Please elaborate on how many firearms or ammunition purchases you have made recently that led you to this conclusion.

Yeah… not so much there now buddy. Anecdotal evidence: my son wants to purchase a lever action carbine. He put a deposit on one last year. It may or may not be manufactured this year. Could be labor. Could be supply chain. Could be demand.

Actually there have been supply chain issues for weapons and ammo since early 2020.
— Minding My Business (@MindingMyBusy) May 12, 2022
This is extremely incorrect.
In addition to ammo shortages and price gouging, there were shortages of guns. Not only were there guns that were available, but prices went to stratospheric levels.

That's not true at all. Like, AT ALL. Buying a gun during the pandemic was a real challenge unless you were settling for cheap garbage and ammo supply chains still haven't recovered.
I know you want to be smarmy about a topic and guns is a favorite target but this is untrue.

Attention Nina Jankowicz … it seems as though we have some misinformation spreading online. Could you get someone who knows something about guns to “add context” to this tweet? Make sure to add something about President Biden sending 20 million rounds of ammo to Ukraine.
NEW: President Biden describes new assistance package to Ukraine:
• 800 anti-aircraft systems
• 9,000 anti-armor systems
• 7,000 small arms
• 20 million rounds of ammunition
"I want to be honest with you: This could be a long and difficult battle," Biden says. pic.twitter.com/nZoIqaw4zL
