FBI plans to spend $100 million on ammo
WND ^ | March 27, 2013 | Steve Peacock

Posted on 03/27/2013 4:22:52 PM PDT by Steve Peacock

Quarter-billion new rounds also slated for DHS

WND recently reported that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has purchased well over a billion rounds of ammunition over the past year.

The magnitude of the federal government’s ammunition buildup has been making headlines over the last few weeks, as members of the military, police departments and consumers are finding shelves bare when they want to buy ammunition.

Alarms over the situation have developed just as the Obama administration is pushing hard on its agenda of gun control.

But the full impact may not yet have developed, as WND has uncovered plans by the FBI to spend up to $100 million over five years on millions of rounds for its machine guns and pistols.

>$100 million over five years on millions of rounds

Must be WND math because even if they bought 1 billion rounds for 100 million bucks that would be 10 dollars per round. So, unless these are silver bullets, $10.00 per round is beyond belief.

...the feds’ real intent is to dry up supplies so that the public has no ammo.

The gun and ammo industry shouldn’t let the government corner the market on ammunition. They should only give the government what the people don’t need. It would be different if this were a time of war but it’s not. Sell to the people first, not the government.

Now if they’d just shoot and kill some bad guys it might justify the cost.

If J. Edgar were the head of the F.B.I. Obama wouldn’t have gotten through the primaries with Hillary. Actually, neither would she.

You know... zero said he was going to accomplish it under the table... Would buying up all the ammo effectively disarm the people?
