    They don't need a loophole. There's nothing remotely unconstitutional about buying ammunition. They aren't prohibiting companies from manufacturing more. They aren't forcing companies to sell only to them. There's nothing at all in the government action that is limiting private citizens from obtaining ammo. Even if it made it more expensive, that's the free market (supply and demand). All it takes to undercut the government's plan is to sell to someone other than the government for a price less than what the government is buying it for. I seriously doubt there are constitutional implications to buying ammo with a flaw in their "plan" that large.

    This entire post is juvenile, paranoid nonsense that doesn't stand up to a moment's scrutiny.

    There's no loophole being exploited, since there's no law against the government buying as much ammunition as they want. Regardless, they're not "buying all the ammo to keep it out of the hands of civilians." That's logistically and monetarily impractical in the extreme.

    Yes, there are a lot of moronic, paranoid, chickenshit nitwits who went out and bought tons of ammo in preparation for the Obamapocalypse that never came and never will. That's why it's hard to get ammo in some regions, not because of the evil gub'mint.

    And since you won't likely take my word for it, liberal press media watchdogs disagree with you:

    No surprise there. Libs are just trying to cover it up, amirite? I guess we can just quote noted progressive website Breitbart.com then:

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/04/04/The-Great-DHS-Ammunition-Stockpile-Myth

    Wow, even some of the most outspoken conservative sites are calling bullshit on this myth? Maybe we should go with something more neutral then, like Snopes:

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/ssabullets.asp

    Or perhaps a site with a bit more expertise, like the Military Times:

    http://blogs.militarytimes.com/gear...ys-ammunition-purchases-should-not-worry-you/

    They all say the government isn't stockpiling ammunition to prevent John Q. Public from righteously resisting the sadly inevitable fascist, communist, Muslim, Kenyan Obamatatorship. Oh, and by the way, they have tanks, and jets, and flying killer robots, and a Navy, and fuel-air explosive bombs... Bullets are really the least of their worries.

    But hey, thanks for leaving us vulnerable to attack from within by perpetuating complete bullshit like this and causing a self-fulfilling prophecy by making all the gun wieners run out and buy up all the ammo. You've left no bullets for Jed and the rest of the Wolverines to stop the Feds from taking over. Nice work, patriot.

    Yes, the grossly incompetent yet simultaneously ingenious government that conspiracy theorists almost always require to rationalize their far out ideas. Bravo.

    I find it funny that we're living in the safest time it has ever been to be a human being. We aren't being chased by animals, we aren't being attacked by barbarians and we aren't having to duel some guy because we cut him off in traffic. Yet people are convinced the world is ending at any moment.

    The government is planning on killing us. The government can barely run a war. Also the government isn't a thing, it's a bunch of people and most people are idiots. They couldn't even keep the bin Laden kill secret, the Rock was tweeting about it before the news was.

    Also what are they going to do after they kill us all? Just sit around and look at each other?

    People need to relax, nothing is going to happen and we'll live relatively decent lives until we make robots that think and they decide to kill us all.
