Now, go online and try to find any amount of any popular ammo - 9mm, .22, .223 etc. and you will discover that there is NONE available, nor will there be any in the discernable future. DHS is buying up all that the ammo manufacturers can produce. The America citizen cannot buy ammo.
Here's the real scoop - DHS (and the Obama administration) cannot take away our guns (yet). But if they render our guns useless, it would have the same effect. But even more important - before long, what small amounts of ammo the citizens do have will soon be used up for practice, hunting etc. Once the citizens guns are rendered useless, nothing stops the government from confiscating our guns. After all, how would we stop them?
Currently, the DHS plans on buying up ammo for at least the next 5 years. By that time, 80% of all privately owned guns will be useless.
Of course, DHS will say they need the ammo. But the 1.2 billion rounds is enough to kill every man, woman and child in America four times over.
And don't forget - DHS is not the military. Any ammo DHS buys can only be used domestically.
Bear in mind, too, that the Obama administration wants to sign on to the U.N. treaty that would usurp our Second Amendment. It would allow the confiscation of guns. DHS knows full well that such a move would result in armed rebellion.
And that could be the very reason why ammo is so scarce. First, render weapons useless. Then, confiscate them without much fuss.
