[Inter]national Ammo Day

Dave Killion — November 17, 2011

Mark your calenders

November 19 is National Ammo Day.
It is a nationwide BUYcott of ammunition.  You buy ammunition.  100 Rounds a person.

… The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens.”

I propose we in Canada also take part,turning this into an international event! And if you can’t find time to pick up ammo on the 19th? Not to worry –

“National Ammo Day is on November 19 and that is the day when you mark your calendar. In the text above you may have noticed that we used the phrase “Ammo Day Week.” That is because it is sometimes impossible for someone to get to the store on that specific day to buy ammunition, so we broaden the time when someone may make a purchase, but still have it count towards an Ammo Day purchase.”

So if you are legally permitted to purchase ammo but can’t aim for the 19th, anytime from then through the 26th ‘counts’. Net result; over 300 million rounds of ammo in the hand of law-abiding Canadians.
