Reports have recently surfaced to reveal that several firearm-related companies have been targeted by UPS, with the shipping company canceling their accounts altogether and, in some cases, even intentionally ‘losing’ shipments.
In one example, an ammunition distribution company called “The Gun Food” reported that out of a recent 18,000 rounds of ammo shipped with UPS, only 6,000 made it to the end destination – suggesting that 2/3 of the rounds magically disappeared.
Patrick Collins, who owns the ammo company, sat down for an interview with Bearing Arms and said he is extremely suspicious that UPS simply lost the packages as they claimed. Collins said that the shipping company had blamed him for not correctly packaging the shipments.
The carrier even reportedly reached out to Collins accusing him of filing too many claims for lost packages.
“They’re not even making it. And I don’t know what they are doing in the facilities, if they are purposefully damaging them. However, they are not making it to the customer. Now for every batch that does ship, we actually ship everything insured. And usually, depending on the quantity or the value of the shipment, we’ll ship it with some type of signature required. So it’s funny when they try to say, ‘well, you know, you put in too many claims.’ And it’s like, ‘well, no, I didn’t put in too many claims. Well, our customer never received their package that we had shipped,‘” Collins stated.
But Collins points out that he and his company are not the only victim of shipping carriers sabotaging their business.
“In the investigation from the shipping aspect, we actually got involved with a couple of other folks that say that here in the Greater Atlanta area, where my business is based out of, we’ve ran into issues where people have not received their ammo. And we noticed it on both ends. I believe one of my distributors has actually lost over $200,000 worth of ammunition that just wound up missing.”
UPS has a history of doing this sort of thing. Back in 2020, it was reported that UPS drivers had even been caught stealing guns from packages.
Collins predicts this is part of a larger Biden administration sanctioned attack on the Second Amendment.
He went on, detailing the multi-pronged approach of choking off industry members financially, disrupting the supply chain/logistics, and government overreach as being some of the bigger issues.
Collins noted that he’s even been the victim of another anti-2A attack, stating that when he opened his company his bank shut down both his personal and business accounts – confiscating all the funds in the process.
“They confiscated the funds, I have to mark it as a loss. They don’t have to mark it as a gain. Of course, they’ll brag about it. They’ll say like, you know, ‘we’ve had accounts that have not shown up to collect.’ There’s no way for me to collect aside of having to take them to small claims, which is only a portion of the money that they actually took.”
Collins concluded the conversation with a warning to, “be very leery of the companies that you do business with, even on a personal level… just be very leery of supporting businesses that are not…that don’t believe in the same beliefs that you believe in…”
