The ammo shortage will go away if the administration A) STOPS pursuing a weapons and ammo restriction B) STOPS pursuing an ammo purchase of billions of hollow pt rounds The msg is clear. Obama is not planning on going away after 2016 and by the urgency of his administrations effort to make ammo unavailable and weapons unavailable it looks like he's planning to establish martial law following the 2014 senate elections!. We have cartels running rampant in the southwest and you want to disarm the public?!!!! Americans aren't that stupid despite the results of the 2012 presidential election

Despite the Department of Homeland Security recently putting in orders to purchase billions of rounds of hollow point ammunition for a purpose of what officials say is target practice, training and quarterly qualifications, Border Patrol agents were told yesterday afternoon that they will not be issued any new proficiency ammunition for next quarter.

Townhall has obtained an email that was sent to Border Patrol agents stationed in the El Centro border sector by a supervisor.

Enforcement Personnel,

Due to budget concerns and ammunition availability, we will not be getting issued any proficiency ammunition for next...
