    You just watch and see if it's not picked up by the "other side" and they try to limit us to 50 rds of stored ammo.

    Bad idea.

    If something like that is enacted, step two will be to limit sales to private citizens.

    Not seeing a need for this law. The ammo "shortage" was not related to DHS purchases. A law such as this one is not only unnecessary but subject to abuse.

    Misguided. And possibly a trojan horse.

    If this is good legislation, what other kinds of problems can we "solve" legislatively?

    I agree with M2, this is clearly a bad idea.

    NO MORE NEW LAWS! Almost always a step in the wrong direction. Lets repeal a few tens of thousands, first.

    I see no chance of this law even coming to a vote. It's nothing more than a statement.

    Actually it sounds good to me. I'll admit I do see a possibility of a Trojan horse. Oh boy, here is another one of those 50/50 things.

    Only a year ago there was PLENTY of ammo in every caliber.

    After, Sandy Hook did amo fly off the shelves.

    With gun control dying in Congress, it will get better.

    How cute...both sides aren't afraid of a little political grandstanding which play on the stupidity of their electorate.

    Anyone with common sense and basic math skills knows this is BS legislation.

    What these guys said...

    NO MORE LAWS UNLESS THEY WILL ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING!!! IF WE PUSH STUPID LAWS THAT WILL DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, WE ARE NO BETTER THAN OUR OPPONENTS!

    Won't have any effect for multiple reasons, among them, the "stockpiling" by the feds is spread over years and only amounts to a tiny fraction of the overall ammo market. Not to mention that the feds are only buying from, what, one manufacturer, and only specific types of ammo.

    Meanwhile the debt-to-GDP hit 105%. But hey, keep wasting time on BS, Congress.

    Lets make a law that says hot chicks have to go out with guys like me. Pretty much the same thing.

    Think this will work? If so, I will propose an amendment...

    At Lowes this afternoon, checking out, and a young female cashier had to squat down to scan a bar code. Reminded me of a 1960s folk song. Her jeans went "...so low they revealed a new cleavage." Maybe I'm not as old as I thought.

    Really? This looks like a LOT of specifics.

    What does DHS need with thousands of rounds of .30 carbine and .45 Long Colt?
