Now this is something you don't see every day.  Get yourself a case of .40 S&W made by Winchester with....purple brass.

Apparently this is some sort of special run for a government agency and was colored that way to quickly identify it as training ammo.  Weird!

That ain't right...

Probably sell like hot-cakes in the militant Obama-gendered community maybe...

The Barney Load.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

All that government agency ammo should be sold to reduce the debt.   It would also lower prices,  as they would stop buying too. 

The government not holding so much would be a benefit as well.
