Just as home owners in the Northeast buying heating oil, they enter a multiyear contract to lock in a bearable price. Considering the last year’s ammo market, that’s not insane. How a many employees fall under DHS??
I just looked it up on wiki - 200,000. Which, I'll admit, made me blink.
But only a small fraction of them (please God) are armed.
Even still, it's only one agency of the feds, and 200 million rounds for five years is still staggering to me. That's army-level BLOAT.
Wait a minute, new reply. It wasn't an order for DHS, it was an order for ICE, a department of DHS.
ICE has 15,000 employees.
Let's assume a third are armed (rough guess).
That's 40,000 rounds per armed employee, at 8,000 rounds per year for 5 years.
That's a LOT of live firearms training every year for every employee.
