Legislators are beginning to push for answers to questions that have been circling around Internet blogs and radio shows for months — about why the Department of Homeland Security is reportedly planning to purchase 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next few years.

Lance was captured on camera during a March 15 tea party meeting in Hanover, answering a question by Harding resident William Baer about the large ammo purchases. Baer cited a Forbes article about the purchases published earlier this month.
