    That is fine as a "Protest" but it will likely never happen, and if it does with today's political climate it would likely end up with government control of the industry totally destroying it.
    So I hope it is nothing more than a "Protest".

    I'll believe it when I see it. This will never pass Herr Reid's Senate.

    At least Sen. Inhofe IS doing something, he could be sitting on his hands.
    I voted for him 3 times, and i'll do it again!

    Although I don't think the government is the direct cause of the ammo shortage, I'm fine with putting more limitations on government purchases.

    While I wouldn't say the government is the sole cause of the problem, they aren't helping that is for sure. I don't think they're drying up 22LR, but I am sure they are making a wave in 9mm/5.56 availability.

    What bugs me the most about it is how DHS is downright lying about it. They put in a huge order for unprecedented amount of ammo (a lot of hollow points), claiming to "save money" for "training". We can't pass a budget, the sequester was riled up, and we're 'saving money' by... spending money? We're doing it for training... using hollow points? I mean.. give it up.. something is not right with their BS answers. Just like their excuses for why the National Weather Service and Social Security Administration bought a bunch of ammo (also hollow points)...'clerical error' and 'training'.

    Whenever I see a bald-faced lie, it makes me wonder what they are trying to hide. DHS buying more ammo than the Department of Defense is alarming to me.
