The govt recently puchased another contract for up to 750 Million rounds bringing the total to 1.5 Billion rounds
thats 4 rounds for every man woman and child in the country.
Note this critical fact...
...it's not an order for 450 million bullets. It's a contract to supply...
In the government contracting business this is called a "BPA" or "Blanket Purchase Agreement". The purpose is to reduce paperwork for both the purchasing agency and the contractor. Agencies like these BPAs because they only have to negotiate specs one time, and because it forces the contractor to prove they can supply that capacity (100 bulldozers, 12,000 data entry clerks, etc.). Contractors like them because they are guaranteed a revenue stream for the next five years. They can show that to banks to get better financing.
Stop worrying about what fascists in D.C. do. That does not advance Freedom. Everyone knows what fascists desire. Teaching friends and children to be free by demonstrating it is a much better use of your few minutes on this earth.
