(The Oklahoman) Two Oklahoma lawmakers introduced a bill Friday that would put new limits on ammunition purchases by most federal departments.

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, and Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Cheyenne, said they were seeking to prevent the federal government from stockpiling ammunition. Their bill would prohibit federal departments, except for the Defense Department, from buying ammunition if their supplies exceed the monthly averages before President Barack Obama took office in 2009.
