Posted on 08/13/2012 3:05:16 PM PDT by Whenifhow
On 9 Aug 2012, the Department of Commerce, for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration by way of the National Weather Service, put out a solicitation for a small variety of ammunition.
The solicitation breaks down the requirements:
16,000 rounds of ammunition for semiautomatic pistols to be factory-loaded .40 S&W caliber, 180-grain jacketed hollow point (JHP). 6,000 rounds of frangible, 125-grain CFRHT .40 caliber. 24,000 rounds of ammunition for semiautomatic pistols to be factory-loaded .40 S&W caliber, 180-grain jacketed hollow point (JHP).
In all, 40,000 rounds of ammunition, and only 500 Transtar II blue 24″ x 40″ targets are being ordered.
All the ammunition and targets are being spread out over the US to three locations, Ellsworth ME, New Bedford MA, Wall NJ, and St. Petersburg, FL. Only the 24,000 rounds are being sent to Florida, no targets will be shipped there.
This all comes after the Department of Homeland Security requested a contract with manufactures for over 63,000,000 rounds rounds over the next 4 years.
And this raises other questions?
Could not the US Government simply re-allot the ammunition from DHS to DOC? What is it about being a weather person requires the training and use of a firearm? What future event is coming that makes the National Weather Service believes it needs to train and arm its employees?
We will report more about this as developments come in. See the video below for the 63 million rounds being requested.
look out, climate-change-deniers!
DHS hunger for more ammunition is a sign of fear and weakness
Let Big Sis eat lead.
and maybe determination.
The Weather Channel has remained among Hussein’s Most Faithful lately.
I think they are trying to buy it all up so regular gun buffs cannot locate ammo.
Also, the waste of taxpayers’ money is outrageous
Now now, you can’t say things like that or some gub mint goon will come ask you stupid questions.
Even IF you’d like big sis to fall out of a helicoptor from about 5000 feet in the air, accidently.
Big ugly skank of a les bean that she is.
So how many gov ‘employees’ have been armed without our knowledge?
The weather service is expecting bullet rain.
DHS has ordered ammo enough to kill the US population roughly three times.
How much weaponry and ammunition is enough for federal non-military and non-police agencies?
She's too busy eating.....uhh.....uhh....strike that.
With DHS having just purchased 450 MILLION rounds, you could say: "All of them".
I’m thinking it’s more like the weather service and all the other previously unarmed federal services are being used as ammo laundering facilities prior to further under the radar distribution to friends.
A caffeinated opinion with Fast and Furious roots.
What is it about being a weather person requires the training and use of a firearm? What future event is coming that makes the National Weather Service believes it needs to train and arm its employees?
Global warming — it’s not just about the weather.
It seems they are forecasting occasional flurries of lead.
Isn't that like taking flight training, but only for flying, not takeoffs and landings?
Cloud seeding with frangible rounds.?
