U.S. Postal Service Joins DHS, Social Security Admin, NOAA in Ammo Purchases

The U.S. Postal Service is now the latest federal agency to announce plans to acquire “assorted small arms ammunition.”
Check it out:

To be fair, it has probably acquired ammunition in the past, as it contains within itself the armed United States Postal Inspection Service. But the newly posted solicitation for “assorted small arms ammunition” comes on the heels of millions upon millions of rounds of ammo purchases by other federal agencies.

Over the last two years, these ammo purchases have contributed to a consumer-side buying frenzy that drives prices through the roof and diminishes supplies.

In August 2012, Business Insider reported the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was requesting 46,000 rounds of “mostly hollow-point” ammunition for agents operating under its auspices.

On March 6, 2013 Breitbart News reported that a large portion of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) “1.6 billion round stockpile” of ammunition was 9mm–a very common civilian round. At the time of our reporting, DHS was adding 20 million more rounds.
