Some authorities say they are having trouble getting firearms and ammunition.
Demand for weapons and ammunition is so high that law enforcement agencies are having trouble stocking their shelves.
"I am hearing from sheriffs around the state of Ohio that are having difficulty in ordering and obtaining firearms as well as ammunition," said Madison County Sheriff Jim Sabine, who chairs the Buckeye State Sheriff's Association's concealed carry committee.
Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones says his office ordered three rifles nearly a month ago and has been told they'll have to wait until more are manufactured. He blames President Barack Obama.
"He's trying to curb guns or stop the sale of guns, but he's done more to increase the sale of guns than any president we've ever had," Jones said.
Jones and Sabine both say they are watching the amount of ammunition used on the range for training and qualification.
Sabine says the number of Ohioans wanting to carry a concealed weapon is up as well. He thinks both issues are part of a cycle.
"In the future, things will slow down, and we'll get back to normal as far as the ammunition and firearms availability goes," Sabine said.
