    I think one of the main reasons DHS is buying so many bullets is to tie up all the ammo producing companies so they can’t make ammo for civilians.

    As noted, hollow points are NOT used for training purposes since they cost so much. In fact, hollow points are “expanding bullets” which were known as “dum-dum”s during WWII. They are in fact highly illegal under international treaty to be used in warfare.

    That is false 45Cal,

    But I wonder why there is no mention of the fence mending that Obama did with Turkey and Israel as a story on this site?

    Hmmmmm….

  • red neck

    It does not appear the we are discussing “international warfare”….

    Federal LEOs train and qualify using the same guns and ammo they use in the field.

    I think one of the main reasons DHS is buying so many bullets is to tie up all the ammo producing companies so they can’t make ammo for civilians.

    Manufacturers in the US produce over 12 billion rounds a year.

    That is a stupid theory. They can simply make more.

    If all the billybobs would stop panicking and buying up every box they can find, there would be plenty for everyone.

    Wait a few months. Cheap ammo will be for sale all over Craig’s List.

    “That is false 45Cal,”

    What is false Dave?

    - Dave: “But I wonder why there is no mention of the fence mending that Obama did with Turkey and Israel as a story on this site?”

    Cause you haven’t bothered to submit one?

  • Dave

    Because Vicki,

    I have submitted sources and numbers that account for the ammo purchase. This is a non-story. If you bothered to read my previous posts on the matter.

    The authors here submit the stories… Any positive story about anything Obama does not fit the narrative that the the owners of this site wish to spin.

  • Dave

    The funny thing about Bloomberg and the NRA is that that LaPierre is spouting off that Bloomberg is trying to “buy” public opinion..

    That is only what the NRA have been doing as long as I can remember. Buying public opinion so LaPierre can justify his 6 firgure salary to the gun manufacturers which he represents.

  • http://chilidog99.wordpress.com chilidog99

    The rumor that the DHS is buying 1.6 billion rounds is simply not true. It was started on Alex Jones (of 9/11 truther fame)

  • http://chilidog99.wordpress.com chilidog99

    Here is what the NRA has to say about the situation:

    —-

    “Perhaps most strangely, some have cited the purchase of hollow-point ammunition as evidence of the federal government’s evil motives. Hollow-points are the defensive ammunition of choice for federal, state and local law enforcement officers across the country, just as they are for private citizens. These attacks are eerily similar to statements made by gun prohibitionists, who spent the much of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s complaining about “dum dum” bullets. (In fact, the Violence Policy Center’s website still exhibits a publication lamenting that federal ammunition law “has no effect on today’s generation of high-tech hollow-point ammunition.”) The attacks also ignore the fact that federal agents, unlike average taxpayers on more limited budgets, normally train and qualify with their duty ammunition.”

    Yo Dog,
    Obama was the best thing that ever happen to the arms industry.

    This is a link to what some are claiming is the purchase of 750 million rounds of ammo by the DHS.
