Is the Government Buying Up Ammunition In Order to Implement Gun Control By Other Means?
Hang On: Link Ultimately Comes From InfoWars

Update: @tsrblke did what I did not, but should have-- he kept clicking through to find the ultimate source of the story. I stopped at the Examiner, which isn't really gold standard.

Clicking through on their link, which they call a "news report," we find the story originates at, Alex Jones' paranoia site.

Sorry, I should have checked. I do not believe this story now, and won't believe it, until someone with some credibility checks up on it.

Washington Free Beacon, Washington Examiner, Daily Caller, Breitbart-- you guys want to look into this?


Everyone says the same thing -- can't find ammunition anywhere, they're all sold out.

Meanwhile, Federal agencies, like the IRS (?!) and Department of Education (?!?!) are buying up ammo.

Lest you peg me a Black Copter Contrail paranoiac, it's pretty obvious (especially to anybody who has experienced ammo shortages at the local gun shop) what's going on here: gun control by other means. Federally-licensed ammunition manufacturers are required by law to give priority to government purchases, ostensibly to keep military and law enforcement agencies stocked. When they have to fill a fed order of, say, a couple billion rounds, it's not surprising to see empty shelves at Gunz 'R' Us.

Iowahawk links this article, reporting that the Social Security Administration (?!?!?!) has purchased 174,000 rounds of ammunition (?!?!?!?!?!).
