DHS Making More Massive Ammo Buys

DHS Making More Massive Ammo Buys

The Department of Homeland Security is making massive ammo buys.

Amid calls for increased gun control from some lawmakers and liberal activists, government entities have made it clear that they will not be relinquishing their firepower anytime soon.

The Department of Homeland Security is currently hurrying to finish the acquisition of 750 million rounds of ammunition, including 209,000 rounds of #00 buckshot 8-pellet bullets for 12 gauge guns and more than 2 million .357 magnum rounds. This follows a purchase of 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammunition earlier this year.

The purchases of such large amounts of ammo along with riot gear and other militaristic equipment has raised eyebrows among many alternative media outlets, which speculate that civil unrest or war within U.S. borders is on the horizon.

RT ponders:

The DHS does not, however, answer why exactly they want to give its federal agents tasked with counterterrorism around 750 million rounds of ammo. On paper the proposal says their request is to fulfill training exercise requirements, but why is the DHS equipping their officers with the know-how to shoot a basketball-size hole in a human body?

The DHS claims the ammo is for use in anti-terror training exercises.

    “…which speculate that civil unrest or war within U.S. borders is on the horizon.”

    Why couldn’t this have something to do with the strict regulations in the UN arms treaty? Additionally, perhaps they perceive the price of these goods going up drastically for economic reasons which have nothing to do with war/civil war?

    I believe the last report said there was near a billion guns in the US. Even with this purchase these “government entities” are hugely out gunned and out numbered.

      THIS IS A “SMOKESCREEN” TO SCARE THE PUBLIC; IGNORE IT. IF AN AMERICAN RIOT “BREAKS OUT,” IT WILL BE “EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF,” ANYWAY.

    Evidently you don’t know who you are dealing with here.
    The end is near.
    The enemy cannot hide forever.
    His attempt to take the place of God,is a feckless endeavor for sure,but it has been forecasted to happen when circumstances are such as they are now.
    You cant change what is written,and you cannot keep God from bringing about the advent of Holy Spirit guided predictions.
    No one has been able to do so in the past,and none can do so now either.
    For government to take the role of God in everyones lives,they have to kill all those who they cannot make conform to that standard.There will be no escape for those of us who believe.Believers will not be easily fooled by the enemy,though some of them surely will.
    Am I saying that there will be bloodshed?
    Yes.
    Am I saying that it will be directed at those who will refuse to be subjugated?
    Yes.
    AmI saying that there will be those who are willing to initiate such a plan?
    Yes.
    Am I saying that I think Americans will do these things willingly to each other?
    Yes.
    You see it has little to do with politics,and everything to do with replacing God in our minds.
    To those who understand this concept, I offer my condolences.
    To those who do not,I offer my pity.Not that it will matter to those who do this thing,but it will matter greatly later,in the grand scheme.But for now let us say that there is a reason for the great division here in our nation.It has little to do with left,right paradigms,and the body of politcs we are used to having our differences over.It has more to do with friends and enemies of God,and how they will respond to one another.
    One side is obviously ramping up the supplies it would seem.Whether for World War 3,or the subjugation of those who will not accept a world dominated form of governance is still to be seen.Either way it spells ugly to those of us who know what the word of God says about it.That it will be the worst time in the history of humankind,and if not for God returning to us the Savior,it would spell doom for our humanity.
    Anything else you may think it is is just not truthful.
    Those who will play along with the game will be allowed to live.
    Those who will not……..
    Cheers!

      “cawmun cents,”

      YOU HAVE TO BE “god-fearing” TO BELIEVE A “holy” WAR IS COMING BECAUSE THE END IS NEAR. “Holy Wars” OF THIS TYPE WILL ONLY OCCUR ELSEWHERE (LIKE, THE MIDDLE EAST).

      THERE ARE ENOUGH ATHEISTS AND AGNOSTICS IN THIS COUNTRY TO KEEP SUCH AN EVENT IN “FAIRYTALE-LAND.”

    I shoot a lot of 357, and they’ve been difficult to find and more expensive by about $3/50 rounds…..pieces seem to be adding up….

    Here is another indication of massive ammo purchases by Feds. One has to wonder why: 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida. Sounds like some other sources I have read indicating that Feds are preparing their side for a revolution, while we sit and watch the politicians call each other names.

    Who’s next? Kongress? Is there anybody still out there who hasn’t yet figured out that a stockpile of ammo is a good idea? Of course, that assumes that you have at least one weapon that requires ammo.
    What makes this twisted is the idea that Uncle Scam or any of his ho bag agencies would need ammo. I would assume that when the stuff hits the nearest available fan, then the old fart can say ‘he warned us.’
    Whoopeee! What Uncle Scam needs to realize is the if he wasn’t such a worthless, self-serving _____, this wouldn’t be happening. I’m also guessing that this is a half-arsed attempt by the old fart to interfere with access to ammo [put NOTHING past Uncle Scam, folks].
