First, they aren’t actually being delivered that much ammo, they are contracts to lock in the price for ‘up to’ that much. We don’t know how much they are actually buying within that contract.
Second, they have needed ‘that much’ for a long time, at least since 2001 they have been purchasing at least 230 million rounds per year. (and if you do the numbers, you’ll see the current half-decade contracts versus annual then are about the same total amounts).
Homeland Security is the umbrella that covers agencies like ICE, Border Patrols, Customs, FBI, etc. All of those agencies burn millions upon millions of millions of rounds at practice ranges alone. Who knows how many are also being stockpiled anticipating future shortages, etc.
My point is that people are making a big deal out of something that isn’t that much out of the norm. The libs screamed about Bush using these on them when he was President, now the roles are switched. This is a usual storyline that switches players as the PTBs switch.
Why does Social Security need ammo? And what is the point of the “military exercises” over major American cities? I believe Obama would have no problem killing Americans if they got in his way. But would our military follow his orders?
Oh, its just for practice. Uh, no dude its not and anybody who shoots knows these rounds are not for practice and why. You will be in the first die off and I’ll feel bad about it for about 15 seconds until I remember that I posted to you several timeS that THESE ROUNDS ARE NOT FOR PRACTICE, THEY ARE FOR YOU!!
