    "Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) said the amendment was unnecessary based on his talks with DHS officials. Carter said the department has since admitted that its ammunition needs are not as great as first reported, and said the department is pursuing a bulk purchase to keep the costs down."

    You have got to be kidding me, they would continue to do this if not confronted by opposition!!! Watch your government closely!!!

    It's nice to see that the minimum standard for a tinfoil hat extends to our elected officials as well!

    The math is simple.

    1. Johnny usually doesn't have more than a box or two of ammo.
    2. Johnny thinks he should go get a few hundred rounds in case he:
    a. wants to go shooting
    b. is afraid the government will ban bullets
    c. is afraid the government is buying up all the ammo
    3. Johnny buys 500 rounds at various prices.
    4. Multiply by 10,000,000
    5. Scarcity
    6. Prices go up, go back to 2.
    7. Lather, rinse, repeat.
