HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Walmart is limiting the amount of ammunition that you can buy at the big box store.

Consumers can now only buy three boxes per day, per customer. A Walmart spokesperson said it's because supplies are limited.

An employee at the Walmart on Sparkman Drive in Huntsville said he can't keep the shelves stocked.

Gun and ammo sales have sky-rocketed since the December 14 school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

Walmart is a member of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's coalition against illegal guns. The store has also adopted a 10-point established by the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership that goes beyond what the law requires.
