Congress would literally need to pass a budget to be able to cut spending to specific things. If people think for a moment, it's been several years since the games of defunding petty things to get back at people have even been mentioned, let alone the defunding of specific things of importance. It's because the last budget to pass this government was written under George Bush, carried over to 2009 under Obama and passed by the Pelosi/Reid Congress. Everything since has been stop gap, Deem/Pass or other budgetary tricks to keep the money flowing to the agencies that run the Government without the formal guidelines or LIMITS of a budget.

Quite a deal, isn't it? It's how we went from controlled deficits of 500 billion or less under Bush to 1+ trillion every year so far and 2013 ought to be closer to 2 trillion by my figuring so far.

So, to answer the main thread question ... They can't really line item out something like ammunition when there is literally no line item to scratch at their point of things right now.

These multiple federal agencies have contracted to buy billions of rounds of hollow point ammunition...BUT

Don't be a traveller going through New Jersey with a stray round of hollow point ammo rolling around on the floorboards of your car!

If you do, you are committing a FELONY!

It is a felony to carry hollow point ammunition in the State of New Jersey, with these two exceptions....
-You may buy them and store them in your home.
-You may fire them at a shooting range.

So, they are illegal to possess in New Jersey, but they are important for employees of agencies like the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (they are the people that bring us our weather forecasts) to have.... for some reason.

Anyone see anything wrong with this?
