Skip to comments.Weather Service Buys 46000 Rounds of Illegal Hollow Point Bullets: NOAA Needs Hollow Points?
Posted on 08/15/2012 7:29:08 AM PDT by CaptainKrunch
In April 2012 we learned The Department of Homeland Security has been stocking up on many millions of rounds of ammunition of differing caliber bullets, and an unknown quantity of bullet-proof booths to use on something or someone somewhere. Today we learn the National Weather Service also needs bullets, hollow point bullets to be exact.
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.

Dont get confused about this. This new NOAA ammo order is in addition to the Homeland Securitys 450 MILLION rounds, and in case you missed it, in April the DHS also ordered an additional 750,000 rounds to add to the 450 MILLION. But back to the National Weather Service order:
They’re sick of people complaining about their lousy weather forecasts.
Hey, do you think if a citizen did this, the MSM would be all over it? “What do you NEED that much ammunition for?”
Zombie attacks could be considered a type of weather....
I wonder if the administration is just buying up all the ammo to keep it out of the hands of the public.
Hollow points are not illegal. Police use them so the round stays in teh body that is shot, rather than going through and hitting innocents.
Plus, one explanation is that the NWS is arranging the ammo buy for the Fisheries division, who has armed men that board boats as police. Which does not explain why Fisheries does not buy their own.
Oh please, not this nonsense again.
The ammunition is being purchased for the Office of Law Enforcement of the Natioanal Marine Fisheries Service, which has had armed agents for decades. This is clearly stated in the posted RFP but this info has been dropped or ignored by many of the idiotic bloggers hyping this story.
A National Weather Service office is handling the procurement paperwork, but they aren’t receiving the ammo. This sort of things happens all the time within large agencies like NOAA and isn’t a “front.”
Hollow Point ammunition is routinely used by law enforcement. It’s actually safer (unless you are the person being shot) because it’s less likely to pass through the intended target.
Along with DHS, they are probably getting ready for the Nov. election.
It looks like some alternate government agency is using NOAA as a front to procure ammunition.
Since when are hollowpoint rounds illegal?
Clearly the NWS needs this to deal with climate dissenters. They are public enemies and obstacles to real change.
Looks like the citizens need to stock up and prepare for some nastiness from the government.
Make sure you know where your friendly neighborhood government employees reside.
To silence AGW skeptics.
Somehow I get this image of Katyn or some of the other atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis on the Jews and other prisoners. They would dig pits and then line up the prisoners, shoot them and watch them drop.
600,000-750,000 rounds of ammo?
They have bulldozers by Caterpillar these days . . . can dig pretty deep holes.
the only purpose of these bullets is to kill people

I actually do buy that. That's good enough for me.
Maybe they need them to help fight “Global Warming”
Shoot the Breeze ?
600,000 Rounds to Capitol Police!:
("The United States Capitol Police, Training Services Bureau has a requirement to procure the following Ammunitions: 1. (600) 165 Grain Gold Dot Hollow Point, 40 S&W, 1,000/Case - 53970; NOTE: Ship in 2 equal shipments of 300,000 rds each. The first delivery no later than September 30, 2012 and second delivery no later than December 30, 2012." )
Armed EPA OIG:
("SIG Sauer Model P229 Semi-Automatic Pistol (P229); E29R-357-BSS-G; Caliber .357 SIG; DA/SA old style Alloy Frame; Stainless Slide; Black Nitron Finish; DA/SA Trigger; Supplied with three MecGar twelve (12)-round magazines and Trijicon three (3) Dot (White ? Glow Green) Night Sights; Milled locking inserts; and, Manufacturer carry case. ")
So why, from an administration opposed to arms, are they stocking up like this? What are they expecting?
