As the “Great Ammunition Shortage” continues, police departments across the country are struggling to supply their arsenals. One police chief turned to the community for help, and citizens stepped up.
In Proctor, Minnesota, police chief Walter Wobig says that his suppliers have told him he’ll have to wait “months” for the 1,000 rounds he’s requested.
Everybody’s having a hard time finding ammunition. Even people who work at ammunition manufacturing facilities are having a hard time finding ammunition. For months now, people have been buying all the ammo they can find in response to gun control proposals and laws passed and pending.
The effects of this have fallen at the feet of many law enforcement agencies, who are having an extra-difficult time finding both target and training [...]
Steve Warholic spends nearly his entire workday at a Nevada ammunition store scouring the Internet, and the owner puts in even more time online. Both think they need to spend more time on the web.
They’re trying to find bullets for their customers at Stockpile Defense and the store’s sister school, where 50,000 people are trained every year in firearms handling. Shelves that once held the most popular calibers, like .22 [...]

The Department of Homeland Security may be in possession of nearly two billion rounds of ammunition, but despite claiming it’s being stockpiled for the safety of Americans, they’re not sharing.
The shortages of popular ammunition rounds has made it difficult for average citizens to acquire most calibers of ammunition through regular retail channels, but the empty shelves don’t stop there.
Police departments across the country are scarmbling to find [...]
PIMCO’s Bill Gross – Dow 15,000: Don’t Fight the Fed, But Be Afraid
It’s hard to know what to make of this week’s record Dow performance except to say, “Don’t fight the Fed.” More than four years after the peak of the financial crisis, quantitative easing—the Federal Reserve strategy of buying up assets like bonds and mortgage-backed securities in order to goose the economy – is still going strong, and so is the [...]

The Department of Homeland Security has released a market survey asking companies if they are able to provide 2 million rounds of ammunition within a short time period, increasing concerns that the federal agency is continuing its arms build up in preparation for domestic unrest.
With the DHS already having committed to purchasing over 1.6 billion bullets over the course of the last year, a [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Congressman Frank Lucas (R-OK-3) today introduced in their respective chambers the Ammunition Management for More Obtainability (AMMO) Act of 2013. The legislation would require the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct a report on the purchasing of ammunition by federal agencies, except the Department of Defense, and its affect on the supply of ammunition available to the public. The AMMO Act [...]
Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security is using roughly 1,000 rounds of ammunition more per person than the U.S. Army, as he and other lawmakers sharply questioned DHS officials on their “massive” bullet buys.
“It is entirely … inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition,” Chaffetz, R-Utah, said at a hearing.
The hearing itself was unusual, as questions about the department’s ammunition [...]
Sequester, tight budgets means DHS buying less ammunition
Tight budgets are forcing the Homeland Security Department to buy less ammunition, two top officials are slated to tell Congress on Thursday as the House oversight committee continues investigating the Obama administration’s ammunition purchases.
Despite the potential for cuts, the department still reported stockpiling more than 260 million rounds of ammunition as of November 2012 — a two-year supply, according to information provided to the committee ahead of a hearing on Thursday.

Ammunition sellers and manufacturers say there’s been a run on bullets and they can’t keep their shelves stocked.
Jeff Dillard who runs National Armory in Pompano says it’s the worst he’s ever seen.
“I have never seen ammo so impossible to get,” said Dillard.
He said demand for ammunition has been growing and spiked over the past couple of days.
“Because of the terrorist attacks and the gun control legislation people are getting in [...]
A media report coming in from overseas states that enough M16 rifles went missing from a warehouse in Kuwait this month to arm and equip and entire division of infantry. Worse, it seems the warehouse was unguarded and a huge cache of ammo went south as well.
According to the World Tribune who reported on April 9:
“The [Kuwaiti] Interior Ministry said thieves broke into a warehouse and stole a huge [...]

Last year, when the state of Illinois attempted to follow New Jersey by making it difficult and more expensive to acquire ammunition, we warned that new government initiatives would be used to try and circumvent the Second Amendment. Rather than targeting firearms directly, lawmakers and government security officials began looking to ammunition as a sure-fire way to disarm Americans.
While it may have been hard to believe then, given the [...]

Arms build-up continues as Congress demands answers
Paul Joseph Watson
March 25, 2013
While the Department of Homeland Security continues to ignore members of Congress demanding to know why the federal agency is engaged in an apparent arms build-up, the DHS has just announced it plans to purchase another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition to add to the roughly 2 billion bullets already bought over the past year.
The DHS has now purchased over [...]
So this goes with the 2 billion bullets?
DHS Purchases Now a total of 1.6 Billion Rounds of Ammunition. Signs of US Collapse
DHS Purchases 200 Million More Rounds of Ammunition Additional purchase includes bullets designated for snipers.

It is a heavily documented fact the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has bought 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition(much of which is outlawed by the Geneva Convention and includes a startling amount specialized for snipers), fully automatic assault rifles, heavily armored assault vehicles with gun ports, and gads of riot gear.
As DHS is a domestic operation, it would almost seem the organization is prepping for a war against the American people, and [...]
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Thousands of people lined up for hours outside Cal Expo to buy ammunition. The line wrapped around the building for the first day of the two-day gun show.
You’ve heard the early bird gets the worm. At the Crossroads of the West gun show it couldn’t be truer.
“We got here at 5:45 a.m.,” said one person. “We were 64th and it took us 3.5 hours.

The Department of Homeland Security approved two more $450 million contracts for more weapons and ammo recently. The Obama File reported:
Dave Gibson is reporting that on Monday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted details of a no bid contract with weapons manufacturer Sig Sauer, worth $4.5 million over the next five years.
The contract is identical to the one DHS announced last week with Heckler & Koch.
Both contracts are for [...]
The Denver Post, on February 15th, ran an Associated Press article entitled Homeland Security aims to buy 1.6b rounds of ammo, so far to little notice.
It confirmed that the Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.
As reported elsewhere, some of this purchase order is for hollow-point rounds, forbidden by international law for use in war, along with a frightening amount specialized [...]
Awr Hawkins, a columnist for Breitbart.com, asked back in February if the present shortages of ammunition are a deliberate attempt by government agencies to so overwhelm existing manufacturers with orders for billions of rounds that it is resulting in “de facto” gun control. Hawkins asked: “What if the shortage is intentional?”
On Wednesday he raised the same question:
While many of the conspiracy theories that have been propounded to explain DHS [Department [...]

Since New York State enacted its restrictive new gun laws, many manufacturers have sent that state (and others) a message: If local governments are going to severely restrict the ability of citizens to own guns, then these companies will not be selling to law enforcement in those areas.
Among the gun manufacturers sending that message:
Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to [...]
A Summary of the U.S. Senate’s Draconian Gun Control Proposals
Georgia police acquired $200 million worth of military-grade vehicles and weapons through DoD
WHY IS GOVERNMENT STOCKPILING GUNS, AMMO?
Is the U.S. government getting ready for a war we don’t know about?
And, if that’s why Washington is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition (hollow points, by the way), why is Homeland Security doing the buying instead of the Defense Department?
Here’s what presidential candidate Barack [...]
From Alex Jones’ PrisonPlanet:
In yet another huge blow to the rhetoric and narrative of the Obama administration and its desire to disarm the American public, a DHS bid has been uncovered showing that the Department of Homeland Security recently put out an offer to purchase 7,000 full-auto “assault weapons” to be used domestically, inside the USA.
Keep in mind that President Obama is on the record saying, “AK-47s belong in the hands [...]
