The solicitation posted on FBO.gov states that U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a department under DHS, is seeking “shotgun ammunition for use by all applicable agencies in the Department of Homeland Security,” more specifically three million rounds of shotgun slugs per year and two million rounds of buckshot per year for five years.
“The ammunition will be used as appropriate at all Department of Homeland Security (DHS or department) component locations nationwide and outside the CONUS [continental United States,]” the notice reads.
This is an excessive amount that not only reveals the vast scope of the emerging police state but also fuels fears that DHS is preparing for large-scale mass panic in America.
And as we’ve exhaustively documented in the past, mass ammunition purchases by DHS are becoming quite common.
Earlier this year, Homeland Security stockpiled over 141,000 rounds of .308 Winchester ammunition (external - login to view), a rifle round well-known for its consistency in long-range shooting.
The agency requested 168 grain rounds in particular, which have an effective range of 800 to 900 yards.
And last year, DHS released a market survey asking companies if they were able to provide two million rounds of ammunition (external - login to view) under short notice.
The survey also asked companies for both their capabilities in producing “large quantity orders of any training caliber specified” within two months and what their lead time would be for a single order of two million rounds.
