The Department of Homeland Security is stocking up. You never know when you will need a few hundred million rounds of ammunition.
It is stocking up on .223 caliber ammo. This is suitable for military issue AR-15’s. It will begin with a purchase of 40 million rounds. It will buy 40 million a year for four more years.
That’s a lot of target practice.
Then the DHS will buy .308 rounds. That is a good caliber for sniping. The DHS will buy both blanks and live hollow point (dum-dum) rounds. How many dum-dums? 176,000 rounds.
Practice makes perfect.
The DHS is a serious organization with a serious mission. What is its mission? Anything it can get away with. But, technically speaking, it is anti-terrorism. What kinds of terrorism? Anything it can persuade the voters that might constitute a threat. A threat to what? The Department of Homeland Security.
It also is in charge of border control.
It bought 450 million rounds earlier this year.
It makes me wonder how widespread terrorist cells are inside the United States. Or how many illegal immigrants are expected to cross our southern border. An order of 450 million rounds indicates a lot of trouble is expected.
