    Because sling shots are fairly ineffective.

    If there were something afoot ammo could be acquired without such an overt public manner.

    Government agencies have first chance at military surplus and given our current situation and the variety of weapons we use it would be easy to "overorder" on the military tab and then "surplus it off".

    Individual offices could purchase on office POs. The reason bulk purchases are made is for budget concerns I can't imagine some "evil plot" starting out with, "let's get the best deal on ammo":upeyes:

    Try reading the amount of ammo per officer. I am not a conspiracy theorist; but something is afoot. In its most sinister form I will outline the possibility of backdoor gun control:
    (1) Order a huge amount of ammunition tying up production and making ammo scarce on the civilian market. The Feds have a lot of money so this is not hard to do.
    (2) Ban the import of ammo with Executive Order like Bush Sr did to AKs during his term with an Executive Order. Drying up even more ammo for commercial use. We have a President who very apparently accomplishes his goals ( "we can't wait") with Executive Orders ( he has turned immigration on its head by implementing the dream act with an executive order). We also have a gutless congress.
    (3 ) Get the press to start beating the drums about having a safer society, how this is going to be for the greater good, and that we are the last industrial nation to allow easy access to firearms ( they will be more than glad to brainwash people).
    All too easy.
    Now start counting how many rounds this is for each HS police officer and start wondering.

    Six months ago I would have disagreed with you, but lately I've come to realize that you just might be right.

    Have you paid close attention to the ones being killed? What made them the target? Be honest about it, most deserved it.


    When they don't, I'll be right there protesting with you.


    With all these purchases being announced, might be a good time to stock up before prices go up.

    hey, maybe some folks in the Govt. are awake and remember what happened to availability and prices last election cycle.

    Maybe they are on their toes and doing a good job.




















    It could happen.

    I know I've been making purchases of primers, powder, bullets and complete cartridges for quite some time now, especially those that were very hard to find the last time it was announced that Barry was the Dem candidate.

    Some people here need to read Elie Wiesel's book " Night." It won the Nobel Prize.
