Ammo is on the chopping block with the Biden administration, who have been armed to the teeth with political power to make these drastic power grabs by the RINOS, and we all knew it was coming.
For Americans who have paid attention to politics over the years, it is no surprise at all that the radical Democrats and their RINO friends have a plan to take weapons and ammunition away from us.
The massive centralized government wants and needs- to eliminate access to self-defense- for average Americans, and we clearly know and understand why the anti-American collaboration of power-seeking maniacs would want that- more power for themselves.
That is why we have the Second Amendment to the US Constitution:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
But what about messing with access to ammunition? Is that infringing on our Civil Liberties? The administrative-deep state will.. of course.. say it is not. All the talk about limiting gun ownership, or taking away guns is cover for the ammo grabs.
No one believed that the clown show in DC could remove guns from Americans. As the leftist Washington Post reported once, “There are more guns in America than people.”
The US government can not even operate a post office- how would they remove over 360 million guns? So they go after the supply of what makes guns work. They want the bullets.
Trying to cut off the supply of ammunition is a war tactic- let’s be honest. Cutting of the enemy’s line of supply is discussed thoroughly in the analysis of Chinese military history. Isn’t that what we are dealing with- with the Biden administration? Let’s be honest.

Also, the Bureaucratic state- who live in dependence on that massive, publically funded bureaucracy, like the idea of beating us with an unfair advantage. If we were our founding Fathers, certainly the hairs on the backs of our necks would be standing upright at this next story.
Biden is cutting off the supply to Ammo and while they try to deny it, some media are catching them in mis-truths- watch this:
Last week, The Federalist reported the White House was preparing to shut down the Lake City ammo plant in northwestern Missouri.
Tristan Johnson wrote for The Federalist:
“The White House refused to deny plans Monday to restrict ammunition supplies for one of the most targeted firearms in the nation: the AR-15.
The Federalist reported the White House was preparing to shut down the Lake City ammo plant in northwestern Missouri owned by the federal government but operated by Winchester, a private firm.
Opened in 1941 to manufacture weapons ammo for the U.S. Army, the government allows the sale of any excess supplies on the open market.
The factory is one of the largest producers of M855/SS109 ammo, the most popular caliber for the AR-15. The plant also sells XM855 and XM193 ammunition and is responsible for more than 30 percent of the nation’s 5.56mm ammo.
Mark Oliva, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), told The Federalist “Winchester was informed that the government is considering restricting the manufacturing and commercial sale of legal ammunition produced at the Lake City, Mo., facility.”
Dan Zimmerman from The Truth About Guns reported, in his article, Biden Administration Moves to Cut Off Lake City .223/5.56 Ammo From the Commercial Market:
Apparently not content with its efforts so far to make gun ownership more difficult and expensive for America’s 100 million firearm owners, a source tells TTAG that the Biden administration is taking steps to reduce the availability of .223/5.56 ammunition available to the average shooter.

The news led 50 House members to send a letter to the Biden administration over the president’s impending decision to curb operations.
“We urge you to immediately end consideration of this action,” they wrote, “which we view as a backdoor attempt to bypass Congress and ban legal and highly popular commercial ammunition and certain semi-automatic rifles used by law-abiding Americans across the country.”
White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates disputed the potential of government closure in a Monday tweet but left the door open to a halt on open-market sales.
As The Federalist reported, they picked up on the hidden messaging- they are not actuall denying the closure, as reported by the lapdog media:
“We will not let this plant close,” Bates tweeted, before adding (emphasis ours):
The administration is not going to restrict the production/sales of excess ammunition currently available for sale to the public (including M855 and SS109) at Lake City Army Ammunition Plant.

Zimmerman closed it out perfectly and wrote:
“The motivation here is obvious. The Biden administration is attempting to further spike the price of ammunition, squeezing the owners of America’s favorite rifles…the scary black ones that the president assures us are only good for killing people and taking down Kevlar vest-wearing deer.
Let’s face it. Even the hapless Biden administration must realize that they don’t have any realistic prospect of getting another “assault weapons” ban through the Senate. Instead, they’re doing the next best thing. They’re trying to make shooting most AR-15 rifles as expensive as possible for Americans who own between 20 and 25 million AR platform guns.”
