Police Departments Beg And Barter For Ammo While DHS Buys Up 1.6 Billion Rounds In Past Year – CSN News

The nationwide shortage of ammunition has left many police departments scrambling to get their hands on the necessary rounds – with some even bartering among each other.

Meanwhile, Rep. Timothy Huelskamp (R-Kansas) says the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to respond to multiple members of Congress asking why DHS bought more than 1.6 billion rounds in the past year.

UPDATE: DHS has stated that they will not be responding to the inquiry.  We’re not allowed to know why our tax dollars are being used to arm a domestic security force with enough bullets to kill everyone in the country five times.
