Why are Federal Bureaucracies “Stockpiling” Ammunition?

Gun Laws by State was asked about federal agencies purchasing large amounts of ammunition this week on WIBC’s “The Garrison Show” in Indianapolis. “What does the Social Security Administration need with 174,000 rounds of ammo?” “Why the heck does the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration need 46,000 rounds of .40?” “What is the Department of Homeland Security planning to do with 450 million rounds of hollow-point ammunition?” Valid questions, certainly…but there are also valid answers. Social Security Administration (SSA) It is true that the Social Security Administration requested a purchase of 174,000 rounds of pistol ammunition.

California Gun Owners, Beware

Newly Amended Legislation Significantly Expands “Assault Weapon” Ban As previously discussed here, gun-control advocates wasted no time in exploiting recent crimes in Aurora, CO and Oak Park, WI to push for more restrictions on law-abiding citizens’ firearm ownership. The latest example comes from California. Senate Bill 249 was introduced last year as an agriculture bill, but was amended to ban so-called “assault weapon” conversion kits. However, SB 249 was further amended on August 7, 2012, re-directing the legislation into an expansion of the state’s so-called “assault weapon” ban. State Senator Leland Yee (D-8) authored the August 7 amendment to Senate Bill 249, broadening the description of so-called “assault weapons” by re-defining… Read More

The first line of a press release from co-author Rep. Diana DeGette (CO-1) sets the tone quite nicely: “Rep. Diana DeGette (CO-1) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (NY-4) introduced new legislation to make the sale of ammunition safer for law-abiding Americans who are sick and tired of the ease with… Read More
