CHARLES C.W. COOKE: The Great Ammunition Myth. “Those who are vexed that the state is stocking up on ammunition — and troubled by fears that this might be a step toward D.C.’s assault on the citizens for whom it works — can relax for now. Whatever the federal government has become, it is not yet plotting violence against the people.”

Yeah, 46,000 rounds for the Fisheries Service isn’t that many — that’s about the level that a well-stocked individual should have!

But what about those DHS purchases of armored vehicles for domestic use? Though I guess that sort of thing is nothing new.
