Actually ... I think if you were "the casual" hold up man (person) ... you probably wouldn't be a reloader.
You would have to go to Walmart to get a box of 38 specials for the model 10 you stole or bullets for the AR (and they wouldn't be cheap).
I also suspect the government was probably trying to do their own little gun control thing by buying up as much ammo as they could get away with during the last administration ... but ... I can't help but think that Walmart might actually put a small dent in local gun play by simply making it hard for the "casual user" (holdup man/burglar) to get ammo for their latest acquisition.
Remember ... even the Walking Dead people were hurting ... Guns were laying around free for the taking in every home but the ammo dried up quickly ... they were screwed until they started reloading. Most people aren't us ... if they buy a gun they get one box of ammo ... shoot 5-10 rounds ... put the whole package in a drawer some where and it stays there till they die.
Can you imagine what the news story would look like if they came to one of our houses?? Mr/Ms X had xx guns ... xxxxx round of ammo ... unregistered ammo manufacturing machinery, several pounds of explosives and detonating devices ... whoa mama ... ... Imagine the neighbor interviews!!
I think this was part of the Japan analogy Cypress was trying to make ...
Is the second amendment different to us than it is to someone who only sees guns on the TV CSI /FBI/Rapper/Gangster shows ...
How cool can it be to be a youngster and snag a Glock from a kid/teen burglary and become "the man" w/ all your friends?
