Associated Press Deficit Disorder, this time on ammo

The AP version:
Troops training for and fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are firing more than 1 billion bullets a year, contributing to ammunition shortages hitting police departments nationwide and preventing some officers from training with the weapons they carry on patrol.
The fact-checked, talked-to-the-ATK's Ammunition Systems Group-largest-ammunition-manufacturing-body-in-the-world Confederate Yankee version:
According to two spokesmen for the world's largest ammunition manufacturer, which runs the military's ammunition manufacturing plant and separately, is a major supplier of law enforcement ammunition, it is a massive and unexpected increase in law enforcement ammunition demand that is causing delays in law enforcement ammunition delays, not the war.
Any questions?
