“During the last two years of the Obama administration, some unusual purchases were made. Large quantities of ammunition were purchased, as were firearms, mostly for somewhat obscure agencies or agencies with no real need for such weaponry. Estimates are that over 1 billion rounds of ammunition were ordered, which resulted in making ammunition scarce for the normal civilian market.” (bold emphasis added)
Have the ‘obscure agencies’ making those purchases been inventoried?
The author of this article notes, in light of Obama’s campaign talk calling for a civilian force with military-equivalent weaponry, it’s high time that inventory be performed.
(There are videos of a Seattle Antifa leader handing out new AR-15’s…coincidental?)
Curious, no? And, then there’s this…
“The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service spent $4.77 million purchasing shotguns, 7.62mm caliber rifles, night-vision goggles, propane cannons, liquid explosives, pyro supplies, buckshot, LP gas cannons, drones, remote-control helicopters, thermal cameras, military waterproof thermal infrared scopes and more.”
Pyro supplies? Liquid Propane gas cannons? When did ‘protecting and promoting U.S. agricultural health’ begin requiring advanced weaponry to accomplish their mission?
(The American Thinker article lists more odd purchases by agencies.)
We agree with the author…
…and hope that the President and his team haven’t lost sight of this activity.
