1. Stop letting him lie about EVERYTHING. Don't let him lie about there being no ammunition in 2015. Don't laugh and tell jokes about how stupid this is. It is this kind of insanity that lets him get away with countenancing genocide; he'll just say its not happening. The facts:..
2....there is something called conventional ammunition awaiting demilitarization and disposal (CAD stockpile) which is the amount that is set for disposal because it is unneeded and too expensive to store. Again, this is the EXCESS ammunition. How much was there?....
3...according to the DoD reports in 2015, the amount of EXCESS ammunition awaiting disposal was 529,373 *tons*, which included 3,533 tons of serviceable small arms ammunition. Because of the cost of storage and destruction of ammunition, the DoD was distributing excess to...
4...other federal agencies and law enforcement departments. In 2014, DoD handed over 38 million rounds of small arms ammunition to FBI and 7.5 million rounds to the Marshals Service. Equivalent amounts in 2015. This is one of those "Sir.." lies. Trump uses "Sir" as a tell for....
5...his lies. Why does he get to tell them over and over and over without people in front of him saying "Sir, who was that? because, according to the defense Department, that fellow lied to you."

Here is a GAO report on the numbers. gao.gov/modules/erepor…
