Another Obama Gov’t Agency Ordering Massive Amounts of Ammunition

About a year ago the country was aghast over the massive amounts of rifle and pistol ammunition that agencies in Obama’s government began buying up. Well, they aren’t done. This month yet another obscure agency that doesn’t deserve ANY ammo is now seen ordering tens of thousands of rounds.

The Blaze reports that the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is ordering 54,000 rounds of ammo.

The Las Vegas Sun reported that the bureau, tasked with managing and developing the country’s water resources, is planning to buy the ammunition for law enforcement use at Hoover Dam and Lake Mead in Nevada.

Agency spokeswoman Rose Davis is staying tight-lipped about the reason for the purchase.

“We want to limit the amount of information any bad guys might have about our protection capabilities,” she told the Sun, declining to provide any further comment.

As recently as last month, the bureau made bids for 41,600 rounds of hollow-point ammunition in addition to 10,400 rounds of shotgun ammunition. It would not say how many armed officers it employs or specify the number or magnitude of security threats it faces each year.

Davis said the ammunition is being purchased with money paid by utility companies for electricity from the Hoover Dam, rather than with taxpayer dollars. The agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheBlaze.

Why does Obama’s regime need so much ammunition? But more importantly…

Why does an agency that oversees the construction of dams and power plants need any ammo at all?
