Homeland Security to Purchase 25 Million Shotgun Rounds

Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security announced that it is seeking an ammunition dealer who can provide 25 million shotgun rounds to the agency over a five year period, adding to its already enormous arsenal of ammo.

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.

Good thing ammo doesn't have expiration dates or it might look like they are stockpiling.

or driving the market.

anyway...this is somewhat related in a wacko hypocritical way:

The dangerous paranoia of the police state -

DHS deecides people who are buying emergency food and supplies are "terrorists" and wants surplus store owners to rat them out -

I guess this police state would have listed my parents as terrorists because Mom always kept a 3 week supply of storable food and Dad had cam stoves, lanterns , extra fuel and a generator - evil terrorists they were.

I knew about that one years ago. Born Yesterday Christians are on the list of terror threats and DHS has recruited clergy took be rats and they've compiled "Clergy Response Teams".

Quote:

For the clergy team, one of the biggest tools that they will have in helping calm the public down or to obey the law is the bible itself, specifically Romans 13.**Dr. Tuberville elaborated, "because the government's established by the Lord, you know.* And, that's what we believe in the Christian faith.* That's what's stated in the scripture." **** Civil rights advocates believe the amount of public cooperation during such a time of unrest may ultimately depend*on how long they expect a suspension of rights might last.

There must be monies available again. The US Postal Service's Police section just made a similar order for Handguns, Shot Guns and small caliber rifles.

The real question is are they run like a typical govenment department? Do they actually own the guns that the ammo will fit?

Jacking off the dog to feed the cat. If one Dept's budget is depleted it is not uncommon to make purchases through another with a surplus.

They're just trying to buy it all up so that the criminals won't be able to get any.
