The Great American Ammunition Conspiracy

Ammunition comes to the local sporting goods store in Waco, Texas, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
There’s a reason the Biden administration is using secret flights to small airports to move unaccompanied minors who illegally crossed the border.
They don’t want voters to know just how many people are being waved right into the country, because President Biden understands that open borders might be the policy of progressives, but it’s not popular among the majority of Americans.
