An Attack On The Civilian Ammunition Supply


If you live in one of the below mentioned states, please understand that the legal system in your area is attempting to restrict gun ownership and usage all over the country. This coordinated attack on the Lake City Ammunition Plant seeks to shut down sales of 5.56mm ammunition to civilians across the country. Twenty state attorneys general have written a letter to Director of the White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention Stefanie Feldman asking the Biden Administration to prevent ammunition from the Lake City plant from being sold to civilians.

The letter from the AGs begins, “We write on behalf of the States of New York, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawai’i, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington to express concern about recent reports that billions of rounds of military-grade ammunition manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant have been sold on the commercial market, leading to their use in many of the most tragic mass shootings in recent history. We ask your Office to conduct an investigation into the contracting processes that led to this situation, and to take action to ensure that military-grade and military-subsidized ammunition stays out of civilian hands.”

Notably, the AG of the Show Me State wasn’t among the blue state AGs demanding the change in policy. The Lake City plant is located in Independence, Missouri.

Winchester operates the Lake City Ammunition Plant, producing 5.56mm ammunition for the United States Army. By contract, Winchester may sell any excess rounds to civilians. In essence, the blue-state AGs want to ban the practice of selling Lake City ammunition to civilians. 

This is dangerous to our 2A rights beyond the immediate threat at Lake City — because Uncle Sam’s reach into all commercial markets could involve governmental assets at some point, or governmental regulation of interstate commerce. For example, where are the components for gun powder, brass, and primers sourced? The blue states could demand that agencies other than the administration’s Office of Gun-Owner Hassling and Infringements get involved in restricting 5.56 ammo and component sales to you and me. It could be a real Atlas Shrugged anti-firearms-commerce policy. 

It won’t go anywhere, but Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) has introduced a bill to lower the age to buy a handgun from a federal firearms licensee (FFL) from 21 to 18. Current regulation makes it illegal for anyone under 21 to get a handgun at retail because the FBI will not process anyone under 21 through NICS. Further, the Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibits 18- to 20-year-olds from buying a handgun at retail. However, it is not against federal law for 18- to 20-year-olds to acquire a handgun in a private sale (where allowed), in which sellers don’t have access to NICS. Massie’s bill, H.R. 6782, is called the Second Amendment for Every Registrable (SAFER) Voter Act. Rep. Massie, the co-chairman of the Second Amendment Caucus, points out that 18-year-olds are considered adults and should have the rights of any other adults.

  1. In regards to anyone (US citizen) under the age of 21 not having any 2nd amendment rights while at the same time the US armed forces has no problem accepting them for service which involves firearms is hypocritical to say the least, Progressive Liberals are a malignant cancer to are beloved Republic Constitution American way of life!
