ammoIs our out-of-control federal government (most notably Big Sis at DHS) buying up all the ammunition so that we law-abiding shooters and home defenders can’t get any, in effect going through the back door to get the gun control they want? If you don’t have any ammo, why have a gun?

U.S. Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) believes so. He told the Daily Caller: “I believe it’s intentional. Now we had someone testify the other day the DHS, the Department of Homeland Security, has the ‘right’ — this is a bureaucrat that said this — they have the ‘right’ to buy as much as they want, and they’re planning to buy 750 million rounds. Well, that is more than three times the amount that our soldiers are using for training to defend our nation. So, it’s just another effort to restrict gun activity and ownership. We have in this country the Second Amendment, that preserves the right to keep and bear arms, and the president doesn’t believe in that.”

I am normally not a conspiracy theorist, and when I first heard this type talk start up a few months ago I brushed it off. But now, as ammo shortages (especially 22 LR, 9mm and .223) wear on and worsen in many areas, I’m not so sure–and in fact I’m starting to agree with Inhofe and others. Semi-autos chambered for 9mm, .223 and the like are the ones the gun-grabbers want to get first! Hoard that ammo and in effect get rid of those guns?

What do you think?
