It's an unusual request from the Boy Scouts: they need ammunition.

Local scouts are 21-thousand rounds short of what's needed for this summer to teach gun safety and marksmanship. Retailers are refusing to sell the scouts any ammunition in bulk. Sales have changed since the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Conn. in November and the call for more gun control.

The Boy Scouts is seeking .22 caliber ammunition. It's needed by June 1st. You can drop off donations at the Cornhusker Council building located at 600 S. 120th Street in Lincoln.
