    GOP Lawmakers Hope to Combat Ammunition Stockpiling by Gov’t Agencies With AMMO Act




    Snippit:

    Republicans in the Senate and House are expected to introduce a joint bill Friday that would limit the amount of ammunition that federal agencies are allowed to buy and stockpile over the next six months, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

    The bill, titled the Ammunition Management for More Accountability or “AMMO” Act, is being proposed after several lawmakers have voiced concerns about some federal agencies, like the Department of Homeland Security, seemingly stockpiling large quantities of ammo.

    “DHS, for instance, has placed two-years worth of ammunition, or nearly 247 million rounds, in its inventory,” the Free Beacon notes.

    In a statement provided to the Washington Free Beacon, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), said federal agencies must provide more “transparency and accountability” in regards to its “stockpiles of ammunition.”

    “President Obama has been adamant about curbing law-abiding Americans’ access and opportunities to exercise their Second Amendment rights…One way the Obama administration is able to do this is by limiting what’s available in the market with federal agencies purchasing unnecessary stockpiles of ammunition,” the statement adds.

    Black Blade: The problem now is that Customs is holding up importation of "cheap" foreign surplus ammo. For many of us this is a bigger problem than the government hoarding of US manufacture commercial ammo.

    i can understand the ARMY needing a stockpile of ammo.

    what worries me is all these federal POLICE agencys and non military federal departments hoarding billions of rounds of ammo.

    that is an obvious violation of the division of the police and the military powers.

    they should have been stopping this from ever happening.

    if their not very careful we end up just like the third world where police and military is the same thing.

    I don't really see a compelling reason for the Federal Thugeaucracy to have so much ammo. There are only 325 million people living in America!
