Your Gummint's Ammo-Buys

You've all read the numbers before...

....just since last spring DHS has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. That’s sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times. Including illegal immigrants.

To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, DHS is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war.

Some are asking "why"?

Well, the conspiracy-types tell us that it's "preparation for the collapse of society," a not-terribly unlikely event given the ambitions of the current Statist-in-Chief.

But I prefer the Occam's Razor theory:  Gummint ammo purchases, by contract, get first priority.  So they're simply buying the stuff to keep YOU from buying it.

You can't shoot what you don't have, folks.
