    Inhofe, Lucas Introduce Bill Limiting Federal Agencies From Stockpiling Ammunition

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Congressman Frank Lucas (R-OK-3) today introduced in their respective chambers the Ammunition Management for More Obtainability (AMMO) Act of 2013. The legislation would require the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct a report on the purchasing of ammunition by federal agencies, except the Department of Defense, and its effect on the supply of ammunition available to the public. The AMMO Act would restrict agencies from obtaining additional ammunition for a six-month period if current agency stockpiles are higher than its monthly averages prior to the Obama Administration.

    It's about time....With progressive liberals losing the battle to restrict American's 2nd Amendment rights, they took a parallel track to attack the amendment through buying up all the ammunition used for the most popular weapons most people legally own. It was a transparent attempt to, if not limit ammunition for sale, it was at the least designed to cause shortages that drive prices up.

    I'd like to know why DHS needs so much ammo? Reports have placed the amount at 1000 rounds per person more than our military uses...That is stunning. What's it for?

    Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security is using roughly 1,000 rounds of ammunition more per person than the U.S. Army, as he and other lawmakers sharply questioned DHS officials on their "massive" bullet buys."It is entirely ... inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition," Chaffetz, R-Utah, said at a hearing.
    The hearing itself was unusual, as questions about the department's ammunition purchases until recently had bubbled largely under the radar -- on blogs and in the occasional news article. But as the Department of Homeland Security found itself publicly defending the purchases, lawmakers gradually showed more interest in the issue.
    Democratic Rep. John Tierney, D-Mass., at the opening of the hearing, ridiculed the concerns as "conspiracy theories" which have "no place" in the committee room.
    But Republicans said the purchases raise "serious" questions about waste and accountability.

    Several bogus issues bound together in a grandstanding attempt to pander to the tin foil hats in the extreme right wing.

    EVERY spring there are ammo shortages as those who start their shooting season begin to think about getting ammo. Is why the more experienced of us buy BEFORE the SHOT Show. Much of this year's shortage can be laid directly at the feet of the 'gun' toting sheeple who panic buy at the slightest provocation, the NRA's firearms lobby must cackle at the very idea of 'stand-up' Patriots so easily panicked.

    To me the 1,000 rounds more per person than the Army is truly sad... it tells me the Army is now so REMF filled the vast majority are just civilians who learned how to salute.

    Gotta love the acromyn though... AMMO, some staffer got an atta-boy for that!

    Your reports are wrong. Congratulations on believing every dip**** email forward you receive!

    Even better that your favorite representatives are falling for the same **** and submitting bills before they actually figure out what's going on.

    HAHAHAHA!

    Next thing you know the extreme right wing will be claiming that the Obama administration told gun sellers to illegally sell a couple thousand AK-47s and high-powered handguns to criminals so that they could be walked over the border and into the hands of Mexican drug lords! Their conspiracy theories never cease!

    HAHAHAHA!

    How about you go take some personal responsibility and go find out how you've been mislead. You'll just dismiss anything I say and I really don't care to hear your excuses about why you insist it's still all suspicious. Or cling to the conspiracy theory, I really don't care.
