    First purchase was 450 million rounds, now add another 750 million rounds. Also in the story is a PDF link that breaks out the various types of ammo these folks are buying. DHS isn't going squirrel hunting, that's for sure!

    I really don't want to believe the DHS is preparing for civil war.

    I'm going to expose massive ignorance on my part and as a question:

    Is the DHS is removing ammunition from the market to reduce its availabilty? Is this possible, or is the supply chain able to readily adjust?

    Agree on both points. I don't rely on any media source to be unbiased (except TUG) however we do have links t0 the actual government documents provided by InfoWars.

    I had not considered DHS trying to take ammo off the market and I really don't think that is the reason for these purchases, although for whatever reason the price of ammo has gone up considerably.

    The different types of rounds listed as being sought directed at actual intended use. Air Marshals use .357 Sig for instance. There are line items for 30.06 and 308, used in high power rifles. Shotgun ammo, buckshot and slugs and the list goes on. Perhaps DHS is being used as a purchase point for supplying a group of insurgents? Whatever the purpose DHS is buying a butt load of ammo, much of it of military importance.

    Infowars does everyone a disservice by casting every possible thing into positive proof of an impending coup. It hastens to a conclusion and by doing that stops the question that should be asked of the DHS: why are you buying all this ammo? This question has to be answered satisfactorily by DHS. It doesn't help if Infowars bypasses this discussion with its own conclusions.

    If DHS is trying to absorb domestic production, they'll run into the law of supply and demand. Demand will always be met. Like government purchases of farm products to support price levels. It just led to more production of farm goods. The pistol rounds don't bother me too much, perhaps they are increasing training and practice allotments, since LEOs in general are way underfunded there. The high power stuff concerns me because those are sniper rounds or rounds that can go through doors and similar cover. Those are offensive weapons. Were there line items for large amounts of 5.56? That would also confirm a stepped up level of concern by the authorities.

    The war gaming and scenarios that are being thought through now by the links RB posted, and others, show a heightened level of concern for domestic disturbances. Yet, neither the media nor those in authority are breathing a word about why this might occur. Clearly, civil disturbances would occur only if conditions got markedly worse in a hurry. What do they know that we don't, and why do they want to keep everyone in the dark? Legitimate leadership should prepare people for the adversity that might be headed their way. Not repeating the mantra that everything is fine.

    Fourteen units of fire for every full time officer in the USA is a bit much, methinks.

    Now the National Weather Service is arming up.

    Jonathan Turley is not exactly a conspiracy nut. He also pointed out the increasingly troubling nature of these preparations.

    Social Security Administration To Purchase 174 Thousand Rounds Of Hollow Point Bullets

    Hollow point bullets are generally not target practice rounds. I don't know what is going on or what the feds are gearing up for but they are going to be able to equip an army. What is missing are records of the weapon purchases.

    Well, this I actually understand. Probably the best way to resolve the problem of excessive social security recipients. The number of rounds requisitioned is probably way too low.

    Those would be via Mexico, from the Fast and Furious program. With filed off serial numbers.

    Meh. That's just because they've got plans to become the US Dept of Reeducation after the Collapse. ;)

    Actually NOAA has an enforcement section, as I discovered. Fish and Hatcheries on oceans falls under NOAA.

    NOAA and there actions have been called into question recently and they are underfire big time from all fronts.

    obummer is stocking up for suppression of the citizenry. I only hope that the people rise up and make a stand.

    I hate our friggen net nanny at work 95% of these articles are blocked, and the reasoning is "controversial issues" & "unethical".... unreal
