There is talk going around the circuit, one of the ideas being floated is to monitor how much ammo a citizen buys. Like, does this person have too much for target practice or hunting? What gives? Or is it the worst thing possible - hoarding? We can't let citizens hoard ammo. Anyone knows that the average person with a long gun, pistol or revolver only needs about 25 to 50 rounds every month. Right? WRONG!
How much ammo a citizen buys every week, every month, or every year is frankly - irrelevant. I don't give a rat's butt if a person buys one box of shells, two boxes, a hundred boxes, or none. That is up to the individual. I have a small stash of various rounds. At one time, I thought I was fixed up just fine. Then I started chatting with some of my gun friends. What I have found out is this - I have peanuts compared to what they have. Did I think what they did in obtaining this much ammo was illegal or immoral? Nope - I was just jealous.
However, speaking of hoarding, I do have interest in how and why someone is hoarding. Who? Our government - who is supposed to work for us. For example, during the Obama Administration, many departments (especially DHS), bought an amazing amount of ammo. How much for DHS? Try 1.5 billion rounds. Is that enough? Enough for our military to fight a "hot war" for 20 years. One problem however - DHS is not our military.
It gets worse. It has also been reported that the USPS has bought ammo to stockpile - as well as NOAA. NOAA? You have got to be kidding me! And much of the ammo which has been procured by the government under Obama was "hollow point". Much more expensive, and much more deadly than standard ammo.
So, if the government ever comes a knocking at my door asking to see what I have stockpiled, I will respond this way - you show me yours, and then I MIGHT show you mine! How could I be that disrespectful to our government agents? Easy - because they work for us, not visa versa. PLUS - they have no DAMN RIGHT to even ask us that question!
Stay strong folks. The gun grabbers have no time for "powers reserved". They will assume power which they do not have. It will be implicit without a shred of Constitution to back them up. We are all of us, need to be like the Little Dutch Boy with his finger in the dike. They are coming for our freedoms folks, and this is not a joke.
