House steps in to limit DHS ammo buys

With the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continuing to claim that the only reason for its recent purchases of hundreds of millions of bullets is for target practice for its agents, some lawmakers are doing what they can to slow it down until they can get at the truth.

The House of Representatives recently voted to limit the amount of ammunition that the DHS could buy and stockpile. An amendment to the annual DHS spending bill was proposed by Representative Mark Meadows, a Republican from North Carolina, and was approved by the House by a 234-192 vote.

The amendment blocks funds from being used to buy ammo until DHS submits to Congress a comprehensive report on its ammunition usage and purchase history. You’d think that an accountability report such as that would be standard procedure when a government agency seeks to purchase huge amounts of ammunition, but no. It’s just another in a never-ending series of activities that try to avoid accountability. 

Many people have become suspicious that the ammo buys by the DHS are for the dual purpose of limiting the amount of ammunition that gun owners can purchase and creating a stockpile to be used in the case of civil unrest. DHS denies both of those charges.

Do you believe DHS officials when they claim that their massive bullet buys are for target practice for their agents? If not, what do you think they plan to do with all of that ammunition? I’d love to hear from you about this.
