U.S. Post Office requesting bids for “small arms ammunition”


shutterstock_125788700On January 31, 2014 the U.S. Postal Service released an RFP (request for proposal) for proposals on “assorted small arms ammunition”.

The notice read, “The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition.” The deadline to register is February 10, 2014.

So what does this mean? The Post Office states this is for their “Postal Police”. Have you seen a Postal Police Officer? I haven’t. (Not saying there aren’t any, I just haven’t seen them.) What are they policing? What are they guarding? Who would they be shooting? If I purchase 200,000 rounds of ammo do you suppose I’d be asked these same questions?

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) just recently announced his proposal to remove a federal gun ban that prevents lawful concealed carry holders from carrying handguns inside post offices across the country. Are they gearing up for all those crazy gun-toting concealed carry people?

Every time an unusual government agency purchases ammunition (NOAA, Education Dept., EPA, etc.) we are told “nothing to see here” and to move along. We’re not saying they’re coming for you, we’re just sayin’…

Below is the proposal in full from the government’s website:
