Wicked Commentary

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe and Congressman Frank Lucas each introduced the Ammunition Management for More Obtainability Act of 2013.

The legislation would require the Government Accountability Office to conduct a report on the purchasing of ammunition by federal agencies, except the Department of Defense, and its effect on the supply of ammunition available to the public. The AMMO Act would restrict agencies from obtaining additional ammunition for a six-month period if current agency stockpiles are higher than its monthly averages prior to the Obama Administration.

“President Obama has been adamant about curbing law-abiding Americans’ access and opportunities to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” said Inhofe. “One way the Obama Administration is able to do this is by limiting what’s available in the market with federal agencies purchasing unnecessary stockpiles of ammunition. As the public learned in a House committee hearing this week, the Department of Homeland Security has two years worth of ammo on hand and allots nearly 1,000 more rounds of ammunition for DHS officers than is used on average by our Army officers. The AMMO Act of 2013 will enforce transparency and accountability of federal agencies’ ammunition supply while also protecting law-abiding citizens access to these resources.”
“After hearing from my constituents about the shortage of ammunition in Oklahoma and the Department of Homeland Security’s profligate purchases of ammunition,” said Lucas. “We have introduced the AMMO Act of 2013 to curtail these purchases so Americans can exercise their Second Amendment rights without being encumbered by the federal government. I was surprised to find out the DHS has the right to buy up to 750 million rounds of ammunition over the next five years, while it already has two years worth of ammo already. This is an issue that must be addressed, and I am pleased this legislation provides us the opportunity to do so.”

  2. Well, I hate to dampen anyone’s spirits or high hopes. But looking at how Ovomit ignores all our laws, Court Orders and the Constitution itself it will just be ignored as well if it manages to get passed. But I doubt that it will. The Obvomits Dictatorship will never vote to hinder itself.

  4. Good one, Pepp. I’m thinking all the complaining this moron is doing about the spending cuts but he doesn’t cut the excessive purchase of ammo, he ramps it up. So, obama would rather buy bullets.

      Right. He does everything to hurt us, but allows the DHS to spend money like crazy on weapons and ammo. I’m not so sure anything will come of this, but it should be done.

      • Pepp, yea he does.

        We can bet they won’t be cut, if he can help it. We need a sequester on his ideological, asinine plans. How about a moratorium on those? 🙂

          Excellent idea. A moratorium on the King himself. Even the left leaning British newspapers are now criticizing him. They said if we had gotten rid of him in 2012, we could have saved ourselves more trillions in debt.

          The moratorium on his vacations should be stopped and his use of AF1 for campaigning. WTH is he still campaigning about?
