DHS Purchases Another 21.6 Million More Rounds of Ammunition
#1
Quote: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)

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

They probably also bought it so that ammo will continue to be harder to get for civilians. I assume the government (federal, then state/local) gets first dibs on the ammo.

The breakdown that I read had the majority of it being JHP. They aren't using that for target practice so you be the judge.

Exactly. The only reasons I can think of for the government to buy JHP instead of FMJ are:

1) They are planning to carry it
2) They want to buy it now so you have it for later (but why would they need that many rounds in addition to how many they have now?)
3) They are increasing the demand, thereby increasing the cost

Frankly, since the .gov is clearly not a friend of the firearms industry, I think the ammo manufacturers should not sell a single component to the .gov until they stop the gun-ban nonsense.

I wish they would too, but they make too much money selling to the government. Unfortunately, not everyone is like Ronnie Barrett

Let's not forget that the military, by treaty, is not allowed to use anything but ball ammunition. So that means that these purchases can only be for the alphabet soup agencies.

When do we get to liberate all that ammo?

Well, we pay taxes, right? That means that some of our money is going to pay for the ammo. Hmmmm, anyone up for a trip to see if we can re-appropriate some of the ammo we just bought by proxy? We can argue it is eminent domain in reverse!
