Police Departments Scrounging For Sufficient Ammunition To Equip Officers; Meanwhile DHS Refuses To Respond To Congressional Inquiries As To Why It Has Bought 1.6 Billion Rounds In Last Year

Weasel Zippers

The nationwide shortage of ammunition has left many police departments scrambling to get their hands on the necessary rounds – with some even bartering among each other.

Meanwhile, Rep. Timothy Huelskamp (R-Kansas) says the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to respond to multiple members of Congress asking why DHS bought more than 1.6 billion rounds in the past year.

Police Chief Cameron Arthur of Jenks, Oklahoma says, “Ammunition and assault weapons in general have skyrocketed…In addition to the fact, not only is it a lot more expensive, but the time to get it could be six months to a year, or in some cases even longer.”

Arthur says he is waiting on an order placed last October and that many departments have begun to trade and barter with each other because of the high demand.

“Most police departments are having a very difficult time even getting the necessary ammunition for handguns, shotguns and especially rifles,” Arthur said.

“With the delay in ammunition, some departments are limiting the number of rounds they carry in their handgun because of the shortage of ammunition. We get to the point where it is difficult to have enough ammo to train and also equip the officers.”

  1. I happen to know through my own connections in Law Enforcement and the Military this is very true. Range time is down for ALL agencies not affiliated with Barrys army. My local city, county, and adjoining counties agencies are all worried about the future of this country. And not a single one supports Barrys ideas of disarming Americans. In fact, quite a few are preparing for a war they themselves see coming. Now riddle me this- if Cops are stockpiling weapons, ammo, and various supplies, what does that tell us?
