RESOLUTION REQUESTING ACCOUNTABILITY FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
WHEREAS, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to respond to multiple Members of Congress asking why the DHS requisitioned more than 1.6 billion rounds in the past year; and
WHEREAS, a subsequent nationwide ammunition shortage is now taking place, leaving many police departments struggling to obtain the necessary ammunition for handguns, shotguns, and especially rifles; and
WHEREAS, the nation-wide ammunition shortage is making ammunition exceedingly expensive for the average law abiding gun owner; and
WHEREAS, the waiting period to obtain said ammunition could be six months to a year, or in some cases even longer; therefore be
RESOLVED, that the Members of the Republican National Committee request that the DHS cease and desist from requisitioning any more ammunition until they fully explain to Members of Congress why 1.6 billion rounds have been requisitioned in the past year.
