Too bad the contract wasn’t for the Border Patrol...but then, they aren’t really allowed to use their ammunition anyway.

Someone has to buy it for the felons, as they aren’t allowed to have guns.

Looking at the article, the requisition is in fact for the Border Patrol. That's still a lot of ammo for a 50K-person dept.
