Post Office joins other federal agencies stockpiling over two billion rounds of ammo
February 5, 2014
The U.S. Postal Service is currently seeking companies that can provide “assorted small arms ammunition” in the near future.
On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges.
“The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for
assorted small arms ammunition,” the notice reads, which also mentioned a
deadline of Feb. 10.
The Post Office published the notice just two days after Sen. Rand
Paul (R-Ky.) announced his proposal to remove a federal gun ban that
prevents lawful concealed carry holders from carrying handguns inside
post offices across the country.
Ironically the Postal Service isn’t the first non-law enforcement agency seeking firearms and ammunition.
Since 2001, the U.S. Dept. of Education has been building a massive arsenal through purchases orchestrated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
The Education Dept. has spent over $80,000 so far on Glock pistols and over $17,000 on Remington shotguns. http://www.infowars.com/u-s-postal-service-announces-giant-ammo-purchase/
