U.S. Government Agencies Arming Up. But Why?
By: Ryan Matthew Dernick
A noticeably rapid armament of the Department of Homeland Security with a recent purchase back in March of 450 million hollow point .40 cal bullets may reveal an anticipation of civil unrest by our law enforcement. Another ammunition order is in the works for the Department of Homeland Security on the order of 175 million .223 cal ammo.
The D.H.S. insists the munitions are strictly for target practice and for training T.S.A. and or I.C.E. agents.
In a story just leaked by the Drudge Report coming on the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security purchase The National Weather Service put out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets. A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass. A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey. The National Weather Service is is one of six scientific agencies that make up the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The solicitation requires a response by August 21.
The N.W.S. is following its federal counterpart the D.H.S. in securing large quantities of ammo. In March, Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage, prompting questions as to why the D.H.S. needed such a large amount of powerful bullets merely for training purposes.
The real reason for theses weapon purchases may be the ensuing economic collapse fears and the fact that gun sales in the United States are above 5 million per month now. In addition to that we have 48 million Americans out of 311,591,917 without work and a national debt of over 15 trillion dollars. To put these numbers into better perspective as a whole, Europe owes €10,592,499,200 – or €10.59 trillion. Massive Government spending that lacks any impressive job creation is a recipe for systemic fiscal insolvency and civil turmoil.
