Why Our Government Bought 1.6 Billion Rounds of Ammunition?

Rumors are true about Homeland Security Department purchasing 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition; this is not in dispute but why? 1.6 billion rounds with the US population of 314 million gives us over 5 rounds of ammunition for every man, woman, and child in the United States. With 90 federal agencies and 70,000 agents (not counting the military) it comes to almost 18,000 rounds per agent. Within these agencies only about 22 percent of the people carry weapons (15,400 agents) so this brings the round count up to around 104, 000 rounds per agent but my question is once again is why?

Our federal government says it is for the training the 90 federal agencies, but when the agents train or carry (not all but most) they only use FMJ (full medal jacket) bullets because of human rights laws so why are they buying every hollow point they can get? It took 71 million rounds (none hollow points) per year for the Iraqi and Afghanistan Wars; with 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition you would be prepared to fight a 22.5 year war. Firearms Division (FAD) has approximately 49 buildings that including firing ranges, offices, ammunition, equipment, and storage. FAD offers 120 firearms courses and on the DHS FLETC home page a banner read 20 million rounds used annually but has since been removed. In September the DHS purchased 7,000+ fully automatic assault rifles as “Personal Defense Weapons.”

Even though the government says it is for training I say BS! Many think federal agency is preparing for civil unrest; is this because the government keeps taking from the working class and keeps giving to the lazy class; is this true I would say yes. A study by DHS characterizes Americans “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists; so if you don’t blindly follow the government you are a terrorist. Major Hassan from Ft Hood wasn’t a terrorist, he just committed work place violence but if you don’t believe the government you are a terrorist? Hmmm

Gangs in America has increased by 40 percent since 2009 in major cities and this is the reason they want to band guns but the 10 most violent cities in America all have strict gun laws but I guess they forgot to tell the criminals. According to Gallup, 41 percent of all Americans said that they owned a gun in 2010, but currently when the same question was asked it had risen to over 50 percent with the main reason being fear of criminals and the government. The real question here is why so many rounds and if you step back and step out of your paradigm the answer can only be one of two reasons.

  1. The socialistic people in our government have for years tried to take away our firearms but have failed. Volley after volley has been fired with more and more fabrications of the truth being told with the media in lock step but they always failed. If they can’t get the guns then if they buy all the ammunition then the guns become nothing but a paper weight and their goal is still achieved.
  1. There is an unrest coming, the government has taken our right away and violated the constitution and the people are getting fed up. With the crumbling of the U.S. economy and violent home invasions in many parts of the nation escalating, people want to protect their families when everything blows up. This has spawned two movements both of which the government doesn’t like because neither depends on the government; these are the militias and preparers. The militias and preparers are terrified of the government and its direction. The only way the government can get control of them is to attack them head forward to remove what the government perceives as a threat; they buy all the ammunition so no one can help them once the people wake up and sees what is happening. The next step after this will be the forcible removal of all our guns.
I might be wrong but I doubt it. Our government over the last 50 years has removed most everything that our founding fathers put into place to make this country great. It will destroy this beautiful nation unless people return to the values of our founding fathers and remove the cancer of political correctness. I once thought President Nixon was the closest to a dictator I had ever seen but now I know he has been overshadowed by our current administration. To fix it both democrats and republicans must do what is right for the country instead of their party.
