Why? There's a big difference there. In order to get a voter ID all you need to do is present proof of residency and citizenship, nothing more. I doubt that anyone will be denied their voting rights over a DUI charge 23 years old that didn't even result in a conviction. However I know someone who, after a lifetime of service in the military, was denied the right to buy a handgun for that very reason.

GOP aims to slow federal bullet buys
Republicans want to limit the number of bullets federal agencies can purchase so American gun owners can buy more.
Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe and Rep. Frank Lucas have introduced a bill that would prohibit every government agency -- except the military -- from buying more ammunition each month, than the monthly average it purchased from 2001 to 2009.
----------
What's the rationale for limiting ammunition for federal law enforcement?
Do they think federal law enforcement is buying up bullets to keep them out of the hands of civilians?
Or do they think they are they are stockpiling bullets to use against American citizens?
Seriously, what's the "logic" behind this idiocy?

1.6 Billion Rounds Of Ammo For Homeland Security? It's Time For A National Conversation

The Denver Post, on February 15th, ran an Associated Press article entitled Homeland Security aims to buy 1.6b rounds of ammo, so far to little notice. It confirmed that the Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. As reported elsewhere, some of this purchase order is for hollow-point rounds, forbidden by international law for use in war, along with a frightening amount specialized for snipers. Also reported elsewhere, at the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month. Therefore 1.6 billion rounds would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years. In America....

And you don't?

Doesn't it make sense that only TAX-PAYING CITIZENS should vote? Why should someone be allowed to vote in a system they have NEVER CONTRIBUTED TO?

But how do background checks restrict the rights and freedoms of law abiding citizens? No one is suggesting that background checks will somehow magically prevent criminals and crazies from getting guns, but it does seem like a good idea to me and - apparently - 90% of people. You don't think universal background checks will keeps guns out of the hands of at least a few criminals and crazies?
Operating on the notion of common sense AND not restricting the right to bear arms by law-abiding citizens, if you're not a criminal and a crazy, what do you have to worry about when it comes to background checks? I'd say nothing.
At the very least, when gun crimes are committed, we may be able to trace the purchase of that firearm back to an individual who did pass a background check and help law enforcement find out how it got into the hands of a criminal.
Because our Federal government LACKS the delegated authority to even demand such a prior restraint.

In FACT, they were expressly FORBIDDEN from touching upon that right in ANY way, shape, or form. The reason being, that that right was intended to be employed against THE GOVERNMENT, if the event they stepped out of line. Would >YOU< give a historical ENEMY knowledge of your weapons. Knowing it would be used against you in the future?

Better yet, do >you< have a sign outside your home stating; "Gun Free Zone"?

And it has been PROVEN that they have retained the 4473 data, when by law they were not supposed to. And even if they didn't, all they have to do is go to the various firearm retailers and get the original copies:

Why do >you< trust a government that has been PROVEN to be DECEPTIVE to We The People?

Are you familiar at all with the history of corrupt governments? Or, how that "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely".

Homeland Security Explains Plan To Purchase More Than 1.6 Billion Bullets: Buying In Bulk Is Cheaper

Federal solicitations to buy the bullets are known as "strategic sourcing contracts," which help the government get a low price for a big purchase, says Peggy Dixon, spokeswoman for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Ga . The training center and others like it run by the Homeland Security Department use as many as 15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises.

Dixon said one of the contracts would allow Homeland Security to buy up to 750 million rounds of ammunition over the next five years for its training facilities. The rounds are used for basic and advanced law enforcement training for federal law enforcement agencies under the department's umbrella. The facilities also offer firearms training to tens of thousands of federal law enforcement officers. More than 90 federal agencies and 70,000 agents and officers used the department's training center last year.

The rest of the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition would be purchased by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal government's second largest criminal investigative agency.

So I guess the answer is #2: they think they are they are stockpiling bullets to use against American citizens.

LOL!

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Can you guarantee with 100% certainty that this is NOT the case? There's an old saying; Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not following me. A little paranoia is a healthy thing. Homeland Security is an unconstitutional abomination that needs to be disassembled and decommissioned along with the rest of the Patriot act.

Congress Seeks Answers on Huge Homeland Security Ammo Contracts

Concerned lawmakers and activists across America from all points on the political spectrum have for months been seeking an explanation about the Obama administration apparently stockpiling weapons of war for domestic use. Estimates suggest, for example, that the federal government has committed to purchasing up to 2 billion rounds of ammunition over several years while rolling out dozens of ARMORED VEHICLES known as MRAPs on U.S. soil. Meanwhile, the controversial Department of Homeland Security and its boss Janet Napolitano are REFUSING to provide real answers....

When you get to the point that the only argument you have left is to attack a typo and a DELIBERATE misspelling, then you've clearly lost the argument.
Come back when you can debate the issues rather than make obsessive personal attacks.
Tell me Dan, how is it a typo with HEAR and HERE.? That's no typo...that's using the wrong HEAR. It's when I was here...not when I was hear. No typo..you just don't know the difference.

This is what happens when people like you pass judgement on others...you better not make any mistakes because when you do, you become a laughing stock. And that's what you are HERE (not hear as you used it).

So it's not a typo, but you admit I made a mistake? Ummm, isn't that what a typo IS?

BTW - I have never passed judgment on anybody for making a typo or for any other simple, common mistake.

Very slowly to back to what I said. Well on second thought, I'll make it easy on you. No it wasn't a typo, as you kept trying to say. You just can't spell.

You have criticized posters plenty of times for their grammar and spelling. You have called them stupid or whatever vile name you could come up with. You know it, I know it, AND SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE.
So you can knock off the innocent act. You have been "HERE" long enough to get a reputation of a bully, foul mouthed liar. The word is out and no one has any respect for you. You are nothing more then a simpleton that provides a laugh.....even though that isn't your intent.

So buzz off little man, I have grown tired of you and your little playground games.
