But let's see. Homeland Security bought up over 2 billion rounds of ammunition in the past year. "For training." Training against what? There is enough ammunition there to wage a war for over twenty years. DHS and FEMA are stockpiling medical supplies and disaster preparedness food and creating dozens of FEMA "disaster" locations. These same agencies are sending thousands of up armored combat vehicles to local police agencies in preparation for what.
This must be in preparation of the great Easter egg hunt. Either that or there must be something to the rumors of the Zombie apocalypse. If you were placing bets, where would your money be?
More bullets for the Feds.
While the Department of Homeland Security continues to ignore members of Congress demanding to know why the federal agency is engaged in an apparent arms build-up, the DHS has just announced it plans to purchase another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition to add to the roughly 2 billion bullets already bought over the past year.A solicitation on the Federal Business Opportunities website details the DHS’ plan to purchase 360,000 rounds of “Commercial leaded training ammo (CLTA) Pistol .40 caliber 165 grain, jacketed hollow point.” The bullets are to be delivered to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, the same destination for 240,000 hollow point rounds which were purchased only last month.Although the DHS has attempted to explain its mammoth purchase of ammunition by claiming the bullets are being acquired in bulk to save money and that they are for training purposes only, this has been disputed by reputable voices such as former Marine Richard Mason, who told reporters with WHPTV News in Pennsylvania earlier this month, “We never trained with hollow points, we didn’t even see hollow points my entire four and a half years in the Marine Corps.”
