Cliven Bundy should be happy for the public revelation of the private comments of fellow racist Donald Sterling; the latter has replaced the former as the person Americans most love to hate. These two bigots recently spewed racial hatred: Bundy suggesting that African-Americans might do well to consider slavery over freedom, and Sterling offering disjointed comments that reveal his evident beliefs in white supremacy.Continue reading Race and freedom: Cliven Bundy, Donald Sterling and Freedom of Speech→
The United States Postal Service is buying ammunition. In January the USPS posted a notice saying it intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition.
We asked why and they said the practice is standard. They also said that this multi-year purchase will supply a range of activities including: firearms training and practice at our basic training academies and in the field, required semi-annual firearms qualifications and law enforcement duties.
Other groups are purchasing ammo too, like the Social Security Administration, the Department of Education, and even NOAA who oversees the National Weather Service. Why would NOAA need ammo? They also oversee illegal fishing.
Bottom line is that while all three have law enforcement agencies, some people say they’re all going postal, because the government is making them buy up all the ammunition.
“They are hell-bent in impeding the flow of ammo to drive the price up high so people that shoot for recreation cannot afford ammo,” said Jerry McCall, the owner of Texas Guns.
McCall said he’s forced to buy ammo from scalpers because the 12 major suppliers he uses are often out, which also forces him to charge more to his customers.
