Several grocery stores in Alabama are selling ammunition in vending machines.

According to the New York Post, the machines are located in Fresh Value stores in Tuscaloosa and Pell City. However, reports are that the Tuscaloosa store has apparently removed their machine already, due to a “lack of sales.”

While everyone can see the machines, not everyone can use them. The machines require age verification through a government-issued ID. You must be 18 or older to purchase ammunition from the machine.

In addition to providing your identification, the machine also takes a 360-degree facial recognition image.

American Rounds operates the machines and says they were created to make ammunition more accessible.

Grant Majors is the CEO of American Rounds. In a YouTube video describing the new machines, he said the machines are a lot more secure than a traditional store, saying,

Traditionally, ammunition is sold at outdoor-type stores, your sporting goods stores, and it just sits on a shelf. It’s very accessible. Because of that, there’s a high rate of theft.

But with our machines, as you can see here, we have a very secure, automated retail machine.”


Fox Chattanooga says the Tuscaloosa machine has been removed from the store.

The article is a little confusing because it says the machine was removed because the legality of the machine was questioned. However, the article also says a Fresh Value manager had the machine removed because of a lack of sales.

Either way, liberals are having a meltdown over the machines and we can consider that a victory for everyone.
