In theory, this has been debunked multiple times on TFL...

... so if it is not true, why is it now being reported by Forbes and The Denver Post?

If it is true, after all, then what is the goal?

Could the .gov really want to drive ammo prices beyond the budgets of most Americans?

Can we get Congress to defund this?

The Denver Post story (which is actually from the Associated Press) does debunk the conspiracy-theory aspect of this.

The Forbes piece is an op-ed... by someone who apparently wants to fan the flames. Meh.

I don't think this needs more discussion; the story has been debunked, as you point out.

ETA: See the detailed analysis of the facts of this matter here, in the "Reliable Sources" sticky at the top of the L&CR page.
Never let anything mechanical know you're in a hurry.
