Skip to comments.Inhofe: Obama Administration Trying To "Dry Up" Ammo Supply [AUDIO]
Posted on 05/06/2013 4:53:02 PM PDT by Biggirl
On Aaron Kleins weekend show on New York Citys WABC radio, Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe accused the Obama administration of buying up ammunition at an unprecedented level to bypass the Second Amendment so gun-owners cant even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.

They made a promise to the chinese that when thier ready thier wont be any problems
I've never heard Sen. Inhofe talk about this sort of craziness.
I've got all the ammo I can imagine ever needing. For the short-term anyway.
Probably have at least 5000 - 6000 .22 LR just sitting there.
To all those grey squirrel, woodchuck, anarchist, leftists, I say...
Bring it on!
......Or so they claim. Be in for a BIG SURPRISE.
Ironically, the Postal police are more constitutionally legitimate than DHS agents.
I am curious why no state has stepped forward with “enabling” laws to encourage ammunition manufacture in their state, on condition that it be sold exclusively in the state, for in state use only. No federal sales.
A micro manufacturer could make a handsome profit right now by setting up a small manufacturing site and making ammo like there was no tomorrow. If anything, he could hire a bunch of people to make it by hand, if fully automated was too expensive. Less ammo, higher quality, also sells.
If he really wanted money on the micro sales market, his big push would be for long term storage packaging. Much higher price, but “guaranteed” for 10 or 20 years, assuming the packaging remains sealed.
Frankly...speaking as an Okie...I think they both need to be replaced. And I don't say that lightly..........
I remember the zero administration stonewalling all efforts to find out why govt was buying so much ammo. Maybe the only way inhofe could get an answer was to level this charge.
If you are looking for anything but 22, Buffalo Bore is shipping whatever you need. Just got a bunch of 308 and 40S&W. Ordered on Saturday and arrived Wednesday. Don’t shoot the S&W40 out of Glock, it’ll blow the barrel(not fully supported).
More in one year than all previous years the. DHS has existed combined and we were in a war and DHS was conducting massive anti terror training programs for LEOs , Military Personnel and First Responders during the early Bush years that hoovered up ammo buy the ton.
I kind of dismissed the rumors regarding the DHS purchase of ammo , but I was wrong on this . DHS is going on an ammo binge and they need to justify their actions because the quantities don't square with current mission requirement and they are far in excess of historic acquisition history
So when is this going to hit court, you cannot secondarily interfere with an amendment if the Constitution? The Supreme Court has already ruled on this point of law.
I’ve voted for both and I’ve been more or less happy with their records in the Senate. Coburn has said this is his last term and I’ll admit he has been wearing down the last couple of years. Inhofe on the other hand is doing and saying the same things now that he did forty years ago. I don’t get what you’re unhappy about with Jim.
I can only think of a few Senators I consider to be better at the job than Jim Inhofe.
I went to a Gun Show last month just south of San Francisco and most of the main calibers were NA or were in short supply and overpriced.
I bought a folding knife, a variety of shot shells and some 9mm.
My friend bought ammunition in various calibers.
The usual hood rats showed up trying to buy inexpensive handguns without a background check because they heard about the “gunshow loophole” - they all left disappointed when they found out they have to jump thru the same hoops as if buying from a retailer.
Why is the NHS buying up so many hollow-points?
You and like minded travelers have caused the shortage yet simple minded folks still believe that somehow the government caused it. Do you have any idea of how little rimfire ammunition the government purchases each year?
The current ammunition shortage has spawned some of the most outlandish rumors and falsehoods since the Y2K scare. Those that have succumbed to this nonsense have essentially created a new faith-based religion much akin to the nature of the leftists man-caused global warming religion.
They are known a "B-6ers" because of the supposed one billion six hundred million rounds of ammo DHS has or will purchase to kill all us civilians six times over.
They cling to any rumor or unsubstantiated fact that seems to support their religion and angrily reject any facts to the contrary. One can not reason with these people any more than one could reason with the black helicopter crowd of two decades ago or the Y2k people a few years later or the warm mongers of today.
The truth will set some of these loons free. There is no hope for the rest. Into which group do you reside?
You would be surprised how quickly a junior marksmanship program can send a thousand rounds down range!
being a standard “brick” of .22lr is 500 bullets and most people keep on hand 10 bricks then that means nothing really as then the average person has 5000 rounds of .22lr.
What is substantial is when one has his owl forklift and the bricks are on pallets, yessirre.
5000 rounds of .22 is nothing big, I know I have maybe three times that amount and have had it for over 8 years.
I see it all over the internet, democratic whiners all pissed off they aint getting their fair share of .22, that their neighbor has more, is hoarding.
You guys are corrct, of course, when speaking of .22LR ammo.
I guess I was transferring a bit because the bulk of my “reserve” bullets are 7.62X54R. Those little critters weigh a ton!
(Yeah - I’ve become a “Mosin Snob.”)
