  • One reason for ammo shortages

    On June 19, 2022, Breitbart News indicated that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) pointed out the IRS spent approximately $700,000 “between March and June 1” purchasing ammunition.

    Gaetz told Breitbart News Saturday the purchase was “bizarre.”

    He said, “There is concern that this is part of a broader effort to have any entity in the federal government buy up ammo to reduce the amount of ammunition that is in supply, while at the same time, making it harder to produce ammo.”

    The IRS bought $700,000 worth of ammunition?
    What possible use could they have for that and they certainly don't have a need.

      The first question that came to mind was the IRS the only government agency buying?

      Remember when 0bama was president:

        Yup all of a sudden 3letter agencies snapped up, a half baagillion rounds? And it definitely effected the civilian market., we felt the rumbles up here in Kanuckistan. But we now have guys asking 200 for a thousand primers, AND GETTING IT.. Then I think to myself, what a wonderful world!

          Spot on!
          Plus add all the people who never owned a firearm and bought one do to the civil unrest on our streets. They bought ammunition also.
          After, the big blue cities defunded the police; people said if the police won't be available? We do it ourselves with a firearm. Our NICS check system approved 20 million firearms sales. To protect their stormtroopers (Anti-Fa, BLM and more), the democrats a trying to ban firearms.

            Yeah it's like they want everyone defenseless. Time to build a few from 80% parts kits, but Turdo has made them illegal too.

              Depending on where one lives, there aren't any police unless you're watching "Cops" on TV.
              As a couple of mayors learned BLM and the Anti-Fa didn't show them any respect.

              The Georgia mountains have the reputation of shooting or in the direction of trespassers. IMO, that is over the top.
              In the US, it all depends on the laws of each State. Georgia has the stand your ground and no requirement to retreat.
              No one in their right mind wants to do harm to anyone; nor do they want anyone to do harm to them or theirs.

              80% kits are gone or going away here, too.

                well well well, this helps seal the deal, going to go after the lower/middle class

                  The middle class or what is left of it is where the money is.. The lower class gets everything from the government; so how can they take anything without risking riots? As we all saw with BLM and Anti-Fa, the D-rats are willing to ignore what they do believing they can control them. They foolishly believe they can control the uncontrollable.

                    Then all of a sudden someone from the other side happens to gain power, and it all spins 180. But the WEFfies will try to claim it's all Rooshian controlled like last time. I wish the power games could be sorted out in the playground .

                      What else would anyone expect from the left?

                      It's all about control and the best way to control anyone is disarm them so they are helpless.

                          I know of him; he's the person who said the 'Great Reset' is no conspiracy theory. Unfortunately, Joe Citizen here doesn't get that yet, but he will.
                          Texas and Florida are busing illegals to blue cities in the North. ROFL

                            And they are getting upity about it too. Pity, they could of built the wall and manned it.

                              The latest on the wall is; well confusing. Apparently, Biden either fixed some openings; OTOH, he refuses to finish the wall. Try to make sense out of that bull malarkey.


                              In other news, Texas is finishing some segments of the wall.

                              Methinks, Texas and Florida should bus lots of loads of illegals to Washington, DC.

                              Yup, the materials are there and the money is there meaning it could be finished for free. However, slow Joe isn't interested.
