Teachers exiting the classroom, leaving education careers at alarming rate
Teachers in San Antonio and across Texas are feeling overwhelmed, overworked, underappreciated and leaving the classroom or strongly considering leaving their teaching careers, leading to what some education experts say could lead to an education crisis.
Ongoing ammo shortage due to several factors, gun sellers say
That’s what gun owners nationwide and in San Antonio are asking as the demand for ammunition is far outweighing the supply these days. Gun sellers say there is a list of factors contributing to the shortage in what’s being called a “snowball effect.”Wolf Laughlin, the manager of the Gun Shack in Helotes, said the ammo shortage first started at the beginning of the pandemic this year when mines and factories were forced to close or reduce operations. The bills include House Bill 52 and House Bill 245, which involve banning private firearms sales at gun shows. Whether those bills will become laws remains to be seen, but in the meantime, gun owners are feeling the frustrations of not being able to find ammo. At the Gun Shack, staff members say they have tens of thousands of dollars' worth of ammo on backorder, but like other gun stores in our area, when they’ll be able to stock up on their supply is unclear.
