Inhofe: Obama administration trying to ‘dry up’ ammo supply

On Aaron Klein’s weekend show on New York City’s WABC radio, Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe accused the Obama administration of buying up ammunition at an unprecedented level to bypass the Second Amendment so gun-owners “can’t even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.”

“Let’s make sure that your audience out there is aware, Aaron, that our president, Obama, has been doing everything he could to stop the private ownership of guns in America,” Inhofe said.“You know that, everyone knows that. And yet he’s been voted down in a big way by a large majority. And so my feeling is that he’s doing this to buy up [ammunition] so that we can’t buy: Honest, law-abiding citizens here in the United States, like my son, can’t even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.”

Inhofe explained to Klein he is working to introduce the Ammunition Management for More Obtainability (AMMO) bill that will limit “non-defense, armed federal agencies to pre-Obama levels of ammunition.”

“It’s designed to have the GAO (that’s the Government Accounting Office) inventory — not the Defense Department, but all other departments that use weaponry — as to what they’re doing in terms of the amount of ammunition that they have bought to dry up the market for honest, law-abiding citizens,” Inhofe said.

The Oklahoma Republican called the buy-ups intentional and referred to testimony last month from Nick Nayak, the Department of Homeland Security’s chief procurement officer, who said DHS has the right to buy up the ammunition.

“I believe it’s intentional,” Inhofe said.“Now we had someone testify the other day the DHS, the Department of Homeland Security, has the ‘right’— this is a bureaucrat that said this — they have the ‘right’ to buy as much as they want, and they’re planning to buy 750 million rounds. Well, that is more than three times the amount that our soldiers are using for training to defend our nation. So, it’s just another effort to restrict gun activity and ownership. We have in this country the Second Amendment, that preserves the right to keep and bear arms, and the president doesn’t believe in that.”

Inhofe was skeptical of theory that the ammo buy-up was an effort by DHS to seize power from the state, as some have suggested, but did say it was unprecedented and shouldn’t be allowed.

“This has never happened in this country before,” he added.“We’ve never had government trying to take that much control at the expense of the law-abiding citizens. And we’re not going to let it happen.”

Of course they have been buying it, the government has been buying ammo for many, many years. The reasons suggested by the conspiracy nuts are what I question and ask for proof of.

Any article referring to this has all the links provided so as to see for ones self.

All one would have to do is click on them.

As is the case on any of the stories on http://www.infowars.com/

You just can't believe that your G-D (government) could do such a thing.

Our government has become a criminal enterprise.

There is a simple explanation for this. Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe is a raging idiot and an embarrassment to the thinking people of Okalahoma. He is a contender for the Top 5 Dumbest Republicans and that's a tough group to reach the top 5 in with so much competition.

Guest of a guest, Infowars is the conspiracy magnet for the uneducated and simple minded, but I'm sure you already know that.

All are symptoms of the dumbing down of the Republican party. I love it, couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of assholes!

Nothing in the article backs up the claims he made about Obama.

Okay, I heard this explanation on the Radio show,“Gun Talk” from a CEO of one of the big ammunition manufacturers as to why there is no ammo out there

The CEO said, I can make x amount of ammunition on Monday and then it is bought up. So, on Tuesday I start from scratch again and make more ammo which is then bought up. His point was that they were always trying to build up their stocks enough so that the drought on ammo would go away but they aren't being allowed to do that.

This explanation seems more plausible to me than any of the other theories since it came from the horse’s mouth.

Notice I made no mention of what caused the shortage I was just trying to explain why the shortage is still occurring.

It still occurs because of the scare tactics of the Republicans and NRA. Everyone is buying it not just the USA.

There's a story on today's Channel 8 website where an ammo manufacturer talks about the current shortage and he mentions that military, police departments, & individuals buy it up as quick as they put it out. That's two groups who use a lot of ammo in training and the third group that is still hoarding it. Nothing sinister or complicated about it.
