    Yup. Infowars.

    Plus, only 360K rounds of .40S&W? That’s, what?, a couple of months of training right there.

    You could also find the sale on FedBizOpps. In general, the government does have the duty to infringe on citizens’ rights. The difference is that Bloomberg’s intent lacks moral credibility given Bloomberg’s past actions. The good thing is Bloomberg is having to pay more and more of his own cash to rent soapboxes and fund anti-gun efforts.

    I would not call it a “duty”. More like a limited privilege, invoked only when people are infringing on other people’s rights, and then only rarely.

    I do get your point, Stacy. DHS buys ammo with impunity, The Loathsome Nanny State Mayor™ urinates on our rights, and the Lame Stream Media shrugs.

    Yet compare with the coverage over the gun grabbers and their terminal stupidity with their ill written laws, and one has no doubt where the bias lies with the media.

    Big whoop. I bought 150 rounds at the Orange County Gun Show.

    *Sigh* if only Obama had been around to use his powers for good, at, say, Woodstock or the ’68 Chicago convention…

    Is that all? I buy that much while grocery shopping.

    Well, really, how much ammo do you need to get more, IYKWIMAITYD? Besides, Tokarev ammo is still kinda thin on the ground.

    Depends on how much shooting I want to do.

    OTOH, yeah, Tokarev ammo isn’t as common as .22LR or .45ACP.

    No, I mean, how many rounds do you need to get more ammunition?

    I’m still demanding that Bloomberg change his name to Richard.
