Question U.S. Postal Service Announces Giant Ammo Purchase...

Yes, you read that right. The U.S. Postal Service. You'll see more surprises as you read ahead. I think this pretty much explains the National Ammo Shortage.


Post Office joins other federal agencies stockpiling over two billion rounds of ammo.

The U.S. Postal Service is currently seeking companies that can provide “assorted small arms ammunition” in the near future.

On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges.

“The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition,” the notice reads, which also mentioned a deadline of Feb. 10.

The Post Office published the notice just two days after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced his proposal to remove a federal gun ban that prevents lawful concealed carry holders from carrying handguns inside post offices across the country.

Ironically the Postal Service isn’t the first non-law enforcement agency seeking firearms and ammunition.

Since 2001, the U.S. Dept. of Education has been building a massive arsenal through purchases orchestrated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

The Education Dept. has spent over $80,000 so far on Glock pistols and over $17,000 on Remington shotguns.

Back in July, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also purchased 72,000 rounds of .40 Smith & Wesson, following a 2012 purchase for 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point by the National Weather Service.

NOAA spokesperson Scott Smullen responded to concerns over the weather service purchase by stating that it was meant for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement for its bi-annual “target qualifications and training.”

That seems excessive considering that JHP ammunition is typically several times more expensive than practice rounds, which can usually be found in equivalent power loadings and thus offer similar recoil characteristics as duty rounds.

Including mass purchases by the Dept. of Homeland Security, non-military federal agencies combined have purchased an estimated amount of over two billion rounds of ammunition in the past two years.

Additionally, the U.S. Army bought almost 600,000 Soviet AK-47 magazines last fall, enough to hold nearly 18,000,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo which is not standard-issue for either the U.S. military or even NATO.

The government has been trying to drive up the cost of ammo since the lying ****sucker in chief infested the office of president.

Let 'em.

Think about how cheap government surplus ammo is gonna be a few years.

Like gubmint cheese.

My luck, it'll all be 9 mike-mike. Which I refuse to own. They'll get you killed.

.45ACP for me (in a G36). All the way

Yeah, the NOAA and DOE really need all that Ammo? Spooky stuff. And purchasing 600,000 Russian-made AK-47 magazines? Yikes!

'While the government gears up for civil unrest and stockpiles ammo without limit, private gun owners on the other hand are finding ammunition shelves empty at gun stores across America, including shortages of once-common cartridges such as .22 Long Rifle.'

It's still good to have a 9mm...if the **** does hit the fan,you can pick up extra ammo from the dead.
That and the wife can shoot it.

Paulitician says "U.S. Postal Service Announces Giant Ammo Purchase" but I don't see anywhere on that that indicates a quantity. Did I miss something? It seems to say nothing more than that United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition, where did "giant" come from? Is Paulitician just making **** up here?

USPS has a law enforcement arm with 1200 investigators and 1000 uniformed officers. They are sworn officers who carry firearms. Why exactly would we be surprised they need to buy ammo for these armed federal officers?

it looks like ANY government agency is ordered to buy ridiculous amount of ammo so the private citizens can not get any - gun control through shortage

They have federal officers who have guns. That aid to Alexander who was busted for child porn and hanged himself? He was arrested by postal inspectors.

They do things like:

SPRINGFIELD, Pa. - January 29, 2014 (WPVI) -- Federal postal inspectors have arrested a masked man wanted for two holdups at Delaware County post offices.

U.S. Postal Inspectors Arrest 14 in Drug Sweep at Mail Facility - Los Angeles Times
Quote:
U.S. postal inspectors Wednesday arrested 13 employees of the Santa Ana General Mail Facility and one non-employee for allegedly selling cocaine, marijuana and other drugs at the plant.

A 14th employee was being sought Wednesday evening, postal inspector William Watson said. The arrests, four of which were made at the post office at 1325 Sunflower Ave., capped a seven-week investigation in which postal inspectors posed as workers and bought drugs from the suspects, William Maisch, chief inspector for the Los Angeles area, said at a news conference at the mail facility.

Fifty postal inspectors, armed with state and federal warrants, participated in Wednesday's operation, which began at 2:15 p.m, postal authorities said. Santa Ana police and U.S. Customs officials also took part in the arrests.
