Niagara Gazette — Claiming the Obama administration is depriving citizens of ammunition by “limiting what’s available in the market with federal agencies purchasing unnecessary stockpiles,” Inhofe introduced a bill that would ban federal bullet purchases that exceed each agency’s 2001-09 monthly averages under the Bush administration.
Inhofe might just be gullible enough to believe the rumors, and perhaps we should hope that’s the case. The other, more-odious possibility is that he’s pandering to single-issue voters -- whose single issue happens to be having enough firepower to wipe out a SWAT team.
Let these rumors, and the NRA’s refutation of them, be a lesson about the reliability of the information we receive. If you value honesty and truthfulness, you should rely on sources who do the same. But if, like Sen. Inhofe, you don’t, there’s always Alex Jones.
