Federal agency has now acquired enough bullets to wage 30 year war

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).
An approximation of how many rounds of ammunition the DHS has now secured over the last 10 months stands at around 1.625 billion.
To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.
Such massive quantities of ammo purchases have stoked fears that the agency is preparing for some kind of domestic unrest. In 2011, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed Immigration and Customs Enforcement to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the â€œshelterâ€ and â€œprocessingâ€ of large numbers of people.
The federal agencyâ€™s primary concern is now centered around thwarting â€œhomegrown terrorism,â€ but information produced and used by the DHS to train its personnel routinely equates conservative political ideology with domestic extremism.
A study funded by the Department of Homeland Security that was leaked last year characterizes Americans who are â€œsuspicious of centralized federal authority,â€ and â€œreverent of individual libertyâ€ as â€œextreme right-wingâ€ terrorists.

Well here we go again.Â Even the unenformed should be thinking why on earth are they buying all this ammo.Â But of course they won't,Â or they will make up excuses for their lover who runs the country. Oh it is for this or that. Maybe they will need it for all the conflict going on over seas.Â It is mind blowing on these people isn't it.Â They have no clue what is coming because Obamanus hasn't taken the guns.Â OM-G,Â it isn't going to happen like they see it in tv a sudden swoop down on people, and the banging at your doors!
The banging at your doors will come if and when he calls a National Executive order,Â or finds a way to claim a nation security issue.Â Is it that hard to figure it out, see it, probably because these people won't believe crap until it hits them right in the face.
But you'll have that when in a trance you can't blame them to much for being such suckers to a Presidential crime they can't face, dont want to face, and dont want to be embarrassed by the fact they voted for the idiot which are the very same peple helping to destroy the country he would have won either way.Â He won before anybody even voted for him another piece of news the uninformed have no clue about.Â Â Eeeeh maybe one day they will get it, surely by then it's way to late.Â Esepcially when they are starving to death.
