  1. [SIZE=12pt] House Votes to Delay Bulk Ammunition Purchase by DHS[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=12pt]9 June 2013[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=12pt]The House voted to stop the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from entering into new contracts to buy millions of rounds of ammunition until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reports to Congress on the need for the ammo, and its cost.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=12pt]Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) proposed an amendment to the DHS spending bill for 2014 that would require the report to Congress before it can pursue plans to buy 1.1 billion rounds of ammunition. Meadows said the speed bump is a necessary reaction to news of the huge purchase, which alarmed many Americans and prompted conservative groups to suspect that the government was stocking up on the rounds to fight citizens[/SIZE]

  3. I would love to hear whatever explanation they come up with.
  4. I read that one official said bulk purchases were done to SAVE MONEY.

    Since when has the government ever cared about saving money?
  5. Hell you should see how much money just the Navy wastes...fucking officers wanting new LCD tv in their staterooms every deployment, you need a paper request chit for EVERYTHING...only time they are cheap is when it comes to the expendable enlisted men.
