Tyler, TX (KETK) — CNS News is reporting today police departments, all across the country, are having trouble finding ammunition. According to reports, they are having to barter with other departments to get ammo. They are having to find other ways to train and use their bullets more wisely.
So, why is there still an ammo shortage?
We have reported before that the Department of Homeland Security has ordered 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, many of that hollow points.
The Department of Homeland Security will not answer questions why they are buying and hoarding so much ammo. Ammo enough to fight wars for the next 20 plus years, according to some.
Now, 15 congressmen have written letters to the feds asking, what's up? American people are being denied ammo for their guns.
"They have no answer for that question. They refuse to answer that," Congressman Timothy Huelscamp told We Are Change reporters earlier this week, adding, "They refuse to let us know what is going on, so I don't really have an answer for that. Multiple members of Congress are asking those questions."
Huelscamp promised to keep asking and even threatened to back a move to defund the agency if answers were not forthcoming.
Last Friday, New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance also indicated that he would pursue an explanation as to why the DHS is engaging in an apparent arms build-up.
Fact or fiction. We need to know.
So much for the most transparent administration of all time.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
