Post Office joins other federal agencies stockpiling over two billion rounds of ammo
by Kit Daniels, Infowars.com, February 5, 2014 –
The U.S. Postal Service is currently seeking companies that can provide “assorted small arms ammunition” in the near future.
The U.S. Postal Service joins the long list of non-military federal agencies purchasing large amounts of ammunition.
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.
