    usnwr today

    The Government Accountability Office tells Whispers it is now investigating large ammunition purchases made by the Department of Homeland Security. Chuck Young, a spokesman for GAO, says the investigation of the purchases is "just getting underway."

    The congressional investigative agency is jumping into the fray just as legislation was introduced in both the Senate and the House to restrict the purchase of ammo by some government agencies (except the Department of Defense). The AMMO Act, introduced Friday, would prevent agencies from buying more ammunition if "stockpiles" are greater than what they were in previous administrations.

    Officials at DHS have denied to both Whispers and lawmakers that it is stockpiling ammunition. The Associated Press reported in February that DHS wanted to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, but DHS officials testified last week it was only planning to buy up to 750 million.

    the best way to rein in the "militarization" of CIVILIAN law enforcement agencies is to do what I have always suggested--courts holding that the second amendment absolutely guarantees all citizens who can own any gun own the same guns that the civilian law enforcement agencies have. If the statists want the cops having belt fed machine guns they are going to have to put on their diapers because the rest of us are going to have them too

    it seems rather obvious to me

    perhaps of the many moronic anti gun arguments constantly flushed onto this forum is the claim that the second amendment only protects 18th century weapons. This is a willful disregard of hte PARITY the founders wanted between regulars and civilians and the idea that civilians who come to serve need to have trained with and come bearing effective weaponry

    Absolutely, a cursory reading of the founders papers on the subject reveals that an armed citizenry is to ward off a tyrannical government...Much like what they fled in England...

    which is why our fans of big government and bigger government are so in favor of banning guns or restricting them

    notice that ever gun banner on this forum is either someone whose lean is far left or whose posts demonstrate they are

    i am not worried by the gangs and currently convicted criminals, because the police and law enforcement know who they are.

    i am worried more by the impulsive killers, like Adam Lanza, or the cold calculating minds who use their their right to buy guns in the preparation to commit a crime: people like the 2 boys who shot up columbine, jered loughner, the Aurora gunman.

    ANd what i fear most is the people who are so driven by paranoia and suspicion of government, that they stockpile guns and amunition to prepare for a event that no rational mind would contemplate. people like the hutaree militia movement.

    Why do you worry about things over which you have no control? How much loss of freedom are you willing to accept in order to "feel safe"?

    remind me of how Lanza used his "right to buy guns"

    same with the guy in NY that caused Cuomo to crap all over lawful gun owners

    or Klebold and Harris




    I stock pile ammo because between me, my son and my wife we burn through 200-500 rounds a week in practice
    I spent two hours tonight sizing and priming 45 ACP brass

    I said adam lanza was a impulsive killer, i classified him as such in my sentance because of the "or" that transitions from impulsive killers like lanza to cold calculating killers like Haris and Klebold.

    the fact that haris and klebold used their friends to acquire their shotguns and hi-point carbine shows that a loophole existed, and the tec-DC9 semi-auto handgun they used was sold improperly and in violation of federal law because the gun store owner who sold the gun,Larry Russel, kept no record of the sale.
