Sen. Jim Inhofe (R., OK) and Rep. Frank Lucas (R., OK) have introduced the AMMO (Ammunition Management for More Obtainability) Act of 2013. The bill was sparked by the conspiracy theory that the federal government is attempting to subvert formal (i.e. legislative) gun control by stockpiling ammunition and therefore limiting the supply of bullets available to the public.
A story on the bill by CBS News is partially available below the jump.
For years, conspiracy theorists have fueled the idea that the government is stockpiling ammunition as part of a gun control effort to create a shortage of bullets. Federal agencies and pro-gun rights groups like the National Rifle Association have tried to debunk the myth, but a few Republican lawmakers are nevertheless pushing legislation that would address the would-be threat.
