DHS Buys Even More Hollow Point Ammo

    Where's the war, Janet?

    The federal agency has now acquired enough bullets to wage a 30 year war

    The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.

    A solicitation posted yesterday on the Fed Bid website details how the bullets are required for the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico.

    The solicitation asks for 10 million pistol cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds) and 10 million 9mm 115 grain jacketed hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds).

    The document also lists a requirement for 1.6 million pistol cartridge 9mm ball bullets (40 quantities of 40,000 rounds).

    An approximation of how many rounds of ammunition the DHS has now secured over the last 10 months stands at around 1.625 billion. In March 2012, ATK announced that they had agreed to provide the DHS with a maximum of 450 million bullets over four years, a story that prompted questions about why the feds were buying ammunition in such large quantities.

    To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.

    Such massive quantities of ammo purchases have stoked fears that the agency is preparing for some kind of domestic unrest. In 2011, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed Immigration and Customs Enforcement to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.

    The federal agency’s primary concern is now centered around thwarting “homegrown terrorism,” but information produced and used by the DHS to train its personnel routinely equates conservative political ideology with domestic extremism.

    A study funded by the Department of Homeland Security that was leaked last year characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

    In August 2012, the DHS censored information relating to the amount of bullets purchased by the federal agency on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement, citing an “unusual and compelling urgency” to acquire the bullets, noting that there is a shortage of bullets which is threatening a situation that could cause “substantial safety issues for the government” should law enforcement officials not be adequately armed.

    As we highlighted last month, the DHS’ previous ammunition solicitation was awarded to Evian Group, an organization that was formed just five days before the announcement of the solicitation and appeared to be little more than a front organization since it didn’t have a genuine physical address, a website, or even a phone number.

    While Americans are being browbeaten with rhetoric about the necessity to give up semi-automatic firearms in the name of preventing school shootings, the federal government is arming itself to the teeth with both ammunition and guns. Last September, the DHS purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”

    As usual, stupid commentary without any logical thought flow whatsoever.

    They wouldn't purchase THAT many rounds unless they were planning on taking action on something first.
  4. The crazies are the elites running the Government who are promising a revolution against the private citizen and personal wealth.
    The motto of the up coming war....."You didn't earn that"
  5. There is some truth to that but the people of this country voted for them to be their leaders

    That's right.

    And, although I don't care for Infowars opinions which are often meant to inflame, the facts of the size of ammo and gun purchases by a civilian agency cannot be denied.

    Can something happen in the next four years that would create an armed conflict between civilians and the government? Possibly but it seems any large scale armed operation against civilians would be met with resistance not just from conservatives but from most Americans.

    Because they are ill-informed, uneducated and addicted to the gravy train without any ability to see into the near future, let alone concern themselves for their children's generation.
  8. You think the government is going to start shooting civilians for no reason ?

    Don't read something into my statement that isn't written.

    I'm saying I see no reason now or on the horizon that would warrant a large scale operation against any civilian block or blocks. Should the government somehow start an armed invasion of personel against civilian communities it will be so unAmerican that most would rise up against it. Therefore it likely won't happen or if it does it will be quickly stopped. Short of part of a planned coup' it's unlikely to happen.
  10. The parasite class voted for "more free ice-cream, now"... Nothing more.
