The Government Accountability Office tells Whispers it is now investigating large ammunition purchases made by the Department of Homeland Security. Chuck Young, a spokesman for GAO, says the investigation of the purchases is "just getting underway."


[MORE: DHS Denies Ammo Purchases Aimed at Civilians]

The congressional investigative agency is jumping into the fray just as legislation was introduced in both the Senate and the House to restrict the purchase of ammo by some government agencies (except the Department of Defense). The AMMO Act, introduced Friday, would prevent agencies from buying more ammunition if "stockpiles" are greater than what they were in previous administrations.

Donelle Harder, a spokeswoman for Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., who introduced the legislation in the Senate, tells Whispers the bill would also require GAO to share the findings of its report on DHS purchases with Congress.

Doggone shame but it's looking brighter. You can get ammo now it's just twice as expensive as it was when the proverbial shit hit the fan.

Case in point, I bought .223/5.56 ammo in bulk 1000rds at a time for $0.27/rd Now that same exact ammo, same brand, same company selling it for $0.50/rd.

I'm glad I stocked up so I can wait out the price hike as it will level out like it has in the past.
