Maybe someone can enlighten me. A few months ago, I was reading article(s) on various gov't agencies (many non-military or enforcement) oddly purchasing large amounts of ammunition, something like the Social Security Admin or the Department of Education, agencies which shouldn't need weapons. And the numbers requisitioned were staggering. Then in just the last couple of days, I saw an article on Homeland Security--I believe--requisitioning something like 20,000 AR-15's, not in the select fire military grade but the consumer semi-auto models. I hope I don't start a new conspiracy theory but doesn't this almost seem like the Administration is mopping up supplies maybe to cause shortages or drive the prices up "artificially?"
