The ammo makers say that they can’t keep up with demand. I haven’t seen ammo on the shelves in any Walmart I’ve been in, since Sandy Hook. What used to sell for about .18/round is now about $1.25/round.
DHS says they’re not stockpiling and that the orders are projected over 5 years. And are being done to lock in low prices. Have they used that method in the past?
The government has been adding armed LEO’s ever since 9/11 and there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight. One of the biggest problems is that the general public drastically overestimates the abilities of the people holding the majority of those positions. To their own detriment. See....Watertown, Mass
But, I think the easiest way to clarify the whole thing would be to go to the ammo manufacturers and track their shipments. If they’re supplying DHS or anyone else, then I would think that they would be required to produce documents. Because its obvious that we’re not going to get a straight answer our of Napolitano or anyone else. If they clam up or DHS steps in, then that would be a pretty good indicator that they’re full of S**T.
My Wal-Mart guys here say you have to show up at 7:00 AM for the 7:15 AM delivery or you’re SOL. I don’t have the money for ammo, so it’s mox nix for me.
