DHS adding bullet resistant guard booths to its arsenal

 Earlier we posted DHS buying 450 million rounds of new bullets.Now the federal agency is also purchasing bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights. First the bullet thing:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office is getting an “indefinite delivery” of an “indefinite quantity” of .40 caliber ammunition from defense contractor ATK.

U.S. agents will receive a maximum of 450 million rounds over five years, according to a press release on the deal.

We’ve also learned that the Department has an open bid for a stockpile of rifle ammo. Listed on the federal business opportunities network, they’re looking for up to 175 million rounds of .223 caliber ammo to be exact. The .223 is almost exactly the same round used by NATO forces, the 5.56 x 45mm.

A press release from Shelters Direct brags about how they are providing the DHS with bullet resistant guard booths. Images of the booth from the company’s website suggest the guard shacks will be used to control checkpoints.

“This guard building features a standing seam hip roof, a thru-wall HVAC unit, (2) UL 752 BR Level 3 sliding doors, UL 752 Bullet Resistant Level 3 glass and a Low]E coating. Other noticeable highlights of this prefabricated steel building include metal halide security lighting, decorative window grille frames, and a “Stop & Go” light with controls,” states the press release.

The purpose behind the bullet proof booths is unknown, but the DHS has publicly announced that it plans to increase the number of unannounced checkpoints manned by TSA VIPR teams and other federal agents beyond the 9300 that were set up last year alone.

Look familiar? Germany World War II

    I used to hear so many conspiracy theories of our gov’t storing up on pine boxes, ammo, etc etc….and, every day, we hear more and more like your story which is sounding less and less conspiratorial and more and more real.
    I can’t BELIEVE any of this could happen in our country……………….we have to fight and I don’t think blogging’s enough. !!

      I wrote it off as well, But the more one reads from reputable sources– actual bills that pass through congress, I have come to believe it is not as crazy as I once did. I feel the same way as the birthers. I still dont buy into it, but they sure are raising a lot of questions that need to be answered.
