DHS to purchase 1.6 billion rounds over a five year term.
- Quote :
For the next five years the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is ramping up for what could be nothing other than a conflict on American soil. The question is, “Will the conflict be from an invading force or with America’s very own citizens?”
In fact the situation is much worse than anyone could have ever imagined as one could only hope that DHS doesn’t have the intention in standing off with the American people.
While profiteering by large corporations is likely a motive, we also have to question the reality that lies right in front of our face.
Although the government claims that the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Georgia uses 15 million rounds a year, that estimate is for all agencies combined and just includes target ammunition. We are now talking about high velocity sniper style ammunition and hollow points on top of target ammunition, designed to kill and not very economical for target practice.
Marketplace.FedBid.com lists one partial government bid order for the following proving that DHS is indeed seeking hollow point rounds;
Item No Description
001 Commercial Leaded Training Ammo (CLTA) Pistol Cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point(Jhp) p/n P40HSTS3G OR EQUAL. BRASS CASING 100,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVERY. 100 MX
002 Commercial Leaded Training Ammo (CLTA) 9MM 115 GRAIN JACKETED HOLLOW POINT P/N 9BP-115 GRAIN JHP OR EQUAL BRASS CASING 100,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVERY. 100 MX
003 Commercial Leaded Training Ammo (CLTA) PISTOL CARTIDGE 9MM BALL 124 GRAIN P/N AE9AP OR EQUAL BRASS CASING 40,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVEY
According to a recent report by Andre Buncombe, “US forces have fired so many bullets in Iraq and Afghanistan – an estimated 250,000 for every insurgent killed – that American ammunition-makers cannot keep up with demand.
