House votes to delay bulk ammunition purchase by DHS
#1
Quote:The House late Wednesday voted to stop the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from entering into new contracts to buy millions of rounds of ammunition until DHS reports to Congress on the need for the ammo, and its cost.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) proposed an amendment to the DHS spending bill for 2014 that would require the report to Congress before it can pursue plans to buy 1.1 billion rounds of ammunition. Meadows said the speed bump is a necessary reaction to news of the huge purchase, which alarmed many Americans and prompted conservative groups to suspect that the government was stocking up on the rounds to fight citizens.

"Given this large purchase, the American people and members of Congress rightfully had concerns and questions," Meadows said. "This is a responsible amendment which ensures that Congress and the American people are aware of the necessity and the cost of ammunition prior to entering into new contracts for procurement."

The House vote has no power to stop DHS from doing anything unless it has passed House and Senate and signed by Obama.

Just the way it is.

They can't unless passed by the House, Senate, and signed. Wishful thinking does not make it so.

These types of votes are a waste of time.

And yes, I would love to see the ammo purchase orders halted along with most of the folks here.
