You Tell Me : What Justification Could DHS Have For Buying Hundreds Of Millions Of Rounds Of Rifle Ammo?

I can’t think of any possible terrorism scenario which would require that DHS has enough high-powered rifle rounds to kill everyone in the US. If you can justify this, please leave a comment. Otherwise, get in touch with your representatives immediately, and let them know.

.223 Remington Caliber SD (62 grain) – HSCEMS-12-R-00015 (Archived) – Federal Business Opportunities: Opportunities

You can take out an Adam Lanza or James Holmes with one .308 bullet. The only possible purpose for hundreds of millions of bullets is that they plan to kill huge numbers of people.

    Perhaps, not realizing that you shoot skeet with shotgun shells, they believe they are supplying Mr. Obama with ammunition for his Camp David shooting fetish?

  2. redc1c4 says:

    maybe they are going to hand it out to the public, to promote civilian marksmanship?

    They are preparing for when the “real” Global Financial Crisis erupts this year. They know it is going to be ugly, but on the other hand it will massively reduce a number of “entitlement” programs.

    200 MILLION rounds……King Obamby has BIG plans.

  5. slimething says:

    Obama and his mob never use states and cities with strict gun laws as examples to support their cause.

  6. Not as big as I thought… It would all fit in a cube 10.2m on a side (33-1/2 feet).

    If you divided it up and shipped it to the 100 largest cities, each city would receive a cube about 2.2 meters on a side (2 million bullets each large city). It might be enough to produce the desired effect, at least for a few hours.

  7. It has been my experience, over the last 40 years, that writing your representative, or even talking directly to him, doesn’t have any effect unless he already wants to do what you suggest. They love to hear from the choir; they brush off those who are “out of step” with their own public stance. In other words, if your representatives are like mine have been, they are either political party hacks, or high-flying heroes in their own minds, who can’t be bothered with the likes of you. Frankly, I expect that is why so many gun owners are so serious–they have found they get no respect from the government, whoever is in charge.

    According to the Military and Defense Business Insider they ordered 1.2 billion rounds in the past year. The orders consisted of 450 million rounds of .40 caliber, then a few weeks later an additional 750 million rounds, then most recently, an order for 200 thousand hollow points (those aren’t target rounds).

    The DHS says they use them for target practice and training. According to this FAQ page at DHS, they use 15 million rounds per year for firearm training in all of their facilities.

    So if my math serves me correctly, they purchased enough ammo in a year to keep their firearm training facilities operational for 80+ years. I dunno, maybe they’re stocking up before the price goes up?

    They can have my ammo first–the only thing good about Waco was they did get some atf jerks before the govt.killed over 100 innocent people–think about that!!

    Utah Sheriffs Warn President They Won’t Back Gun Laws

    “We, like you, swore a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and we are prepared to trade our lives for the preservation of its traditional interpretation,”

    lots more coverage if you google it

    This does seem like an excessive number of rounds, even after you subtract the number of rounds Big Sis via Holder will hand out to the Mexican cartels. If I was a border agent I would be very concerned right now.
    And Hillary is getting ready to retire. I understand she is a very savvy when it comes to investment opportunities. Might want to check her portfolio for recent investments in big ammo.
