Why is the Government buying up so much Ammo?

UPDATE: DHS Purchases 21.6 Million More Rounds of Ammunition

February 7, 2013

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest. A solicitation posted yesterday on the Fed Bid website details how the bullets are required for the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico.

Let me put my tin foil hat on today, and just do a bit of wondering about all of this ammo that the Government is purchasing. First bell that went off: In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls.

When I read that now the Social Security was into buying ammo big time, this raised big time questions. Sure, I know that agencies must practice with live ammo. But must it all be hollow point which is certainly on the expensive side. So I am posting this bit of speculation, and each can do his/her own speculation as well. From the post:

Major General Jerry Curry: Why Are Domestic Government Agencies Purchasing Enough Lethal Ammunition to Put 5 Rounds In Every American?

All of these rounds of ammunition can only be used to kill American citizens, though there is enough ammunition being ordered to kill, in addition to every American citizen, also every Iranian, Syrian or Mexican. There is simply too much of it. And this much ammunition can’t be just for training, there aren’t that many weapons and “shooters” in the U.S. to fire it:

Recall Senator Daniel K. Inouye in 1987 Chaired the Senate Select Committee on Secret Military Assistance to Iran and the Nicaraguan Opposition, which held public hearings on the Iran-Contra affair.

Senator Inouye, summarizes here the coverup of the US Shadowy Government involvement; by saying:

“There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.” 

Retired Major General Jerry Curry wrote Friday:

The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S.


Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.

If this were only a one time order of ammunition, it could easily be dismissed. But there is a pattern here. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has ordered 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition. Notice that all of these purchases are for the lethal hollow nose bullets. These bullets are not being purchased and stored for squirrel or coyote hunting. This is serious ammunition manufactured to be used for serious purposes.

In the war in Iraq, our military forces expended approximately 70 million rounds per year. In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public.

More concern and speculation of this can be found with a H/T:Washington Blog

    Thx for coming by my blog. I see you also have an article about the DHS buying up so much ammo. I put one up last week and this time a Retired General Boykin gave his thoughts on this and made it clear what the DHS is really up to, to wage war against the American citizens in this country.

    General Boykin is impeccable in his character, his military career and I read his book where it unfolds that his man is of the highest top notch character so when he speaks I listen good.

    Good article! I like your blog.

    Here is a link to the one I posted on this subject in case you want to read some more about it: http://pepperhawkfarm.wordpress.com/2013/03/28/ret-general-boykin-warning-by-peppermint-2/

While Obama is partying away, our very freedom is on the line and no one reports this. It is much more important for him to talk to the “”Pimp with a Limp” and have the media focus on Romney’s latest reveal.

  13. TexasFred Says:

    The good news is, the military and police, at least 75% of them, are WITH US! And we have more guns and ammo than the military does, they have HEAVY weapons, but that could be what the 75% that are with us bring to the table.. Just sayin’…


  14. Conservatives on Fire Says:

    Yeah, it’s hard to buy this target practice BS. With Obama and Napolitano, anything is possible. Why isn’t Congress demanding answers?


  15. Kurt Silverfiddle Says:

    So where are the democrats on all of this? They went after Reagan when we did a good thing in Central America (our efforts resulted in free elections and the guerilla armies laying down weapons and forming political parties in Nicaragua and El Salvador).


    • Bunkerville Says:

      It is a one way street as far as the GOP is concerned. While it was a great win for us earlier, this is where it leads when we leave our principles to those who cannot be trusted. Who knows what Obama is doing in Africa and the middle east.


  16. republican mother Says:

    They could also be locking up the ammo market, driving up the price for the rest of it. Though I’m not a gun nut, I’m not sure what part of the domestic market is hollowpoints, though.
    I heard Max Keiser say 90% chance of total economic meltdown by April. When that happens, they might drop their hammer. Everything seems to be happening in a pattern: our physical country is declared a battlefield (despite being eight times more likely to die at the hands of a cop than a middle eastern terrorist), Homeland Security orders armored pillboxes, ammo, every agency in the government is ordering ammo, and we’re being spied on at this moment.

    It’s not a tinfoil hat you’ve got on there, it’s called a thinking cap and it’s high time everyone put their’s on and start putting this jigsaw together.


  17. Steve Dennis Says:

    Hollow point bullets are not used for target practice, and I know it sounds “out there” but the USA did deem the US a battlefield and did make it legal to arrest and detain Americans indefinately and without charge and now the ammo buys. Something is going on here, the government is preparing for something.


    • bunkerville Says:

      I know steve, and the more I read about the “shadow” government, or a segment that is totally secret, the more concerned we should all be.
