ladyfortuna: Here's an idea, everyone who ponied up 1.5x or more the normal price for ammo in the last three months: send a box to the Marines (assuming proper type of course). Congrats, you helped the economy AND supported the troops./lives in a dream world//well aware
CeroX: Maybe they can borrow some from the DHS who just purchased almost 2 billion rounds of ammo...
manimal2878: What sort of deranged world do you live in that doing that even makes sense?Even assuming it made any kind of sense to send my ammo to the military to make up for the GOP being dickheads, the military would have to be farking insane to accept it. Talk about the potential for sabatoge or just plain out of spec crap coming in.
HotWingConspiracy: Patriots at home could donate some of their hoard, but they're saving them to kill Marines.
Albinoman: How about firing some of the ginormous DoD staff and use the saved money to buy ammo? All these sequestration cuts are being intentionally done where it'll make the most noise.
hardinparamedic: CeroX: Maybe they can borrow some from the DHS who just purchased almost 2 billion rounds of ammo...[loadpaper.com image 850x658]Yeah. We can just steal from them. Not like the Coast Guard ever does anything anyway. farkin' Pussies, man. The Core is the real American Hero (GI JOE!!!!!)
Bung_Howdy: Hudsonism'sso how do I get out of this chickenshiat outfit anyway?Well that's great, that's just farkin' great, man. Now what the fark are we supposed to do? We're in some real pretty shiat now man...That's it man, game over man, game over! What the fark are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do?
Surpheon: All that is "Under Contract"? Well yeah, steal from them. Get some sanity into our drug laws first and then the Coast Guard won't need to be turned into a second Navy with trillions of dollars of hardware just to make sure the next generation of Bushs have to overpay for their blow.
homelessdude: Oh please. This is a neo-con bs flame-bait article.Take one F-22 offline for a couple of months. Bullet problem solved.The thing barely flies anyway. (cnn)
cubic_spleen: The obvious solution is tax cuts for the wealthy.
Fool_Marquis: The thirty men who service and repair a motor pool don't need to carry loaded rifles with them, but the fifteen men on patrol in hostile territory should have theirs everywhere.
CeroX: 2 billion rounds of ammo is enough ammo to conduct a 20 year war based on the calculations of how many round of ammo were used between both iraq and iran...
Norfolking Chance: How about stopping the pork that congresscritters use to reward campaign contributors and dump equipment on the US military that it doesn't want.Oh wait that would stop the generals and admirals getting those cushy jobs when they retire.The US military budget is just a blank cheque used to line peoples pockets.
