Surprise! The DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement have requested more ammunition.
However, it is the type of ammunition and not necessarily the quantity that is troubling.
First on the agenda is the .223 rifle ammunition. Just a measly 40 million rounds in the first year, and another 160 million rounds in the following four years. 200,00 million rounds in total. You know, just enough to make you cringe thinking that some government office that is not military has more ammunition than you do.
The .223 caliber round is a decent hunting round, but that is not the rounds to be concerned about.
The .308 rounds should have you a bit concerned. Quite a bit concerned.
Why the .308? Because the same folks at DHS think they need two types of .308 caliber rounds. Blank ammunition and 168 grain hollow point boat tail ammunition.
The blank ammunition will be spread to five different locations in the American south east and in Puerto Rico. The regular ammunition will be spread all over the US in a variety of places.

we are the targets.
If I were expecting and election to be close ....hmmm or a depression and not food ...hmmmm...If I were going to steal an election ....hmmmm. Are they ordering US ammo or chinese.
These tens of millions of rounds are simply for target practice!
They’re libs, right?
I’m hoping they’ll be SCARED of those nasty gun-like-thingys that they don’t know how to work.
(Time to start sweating? When they start having classes in firearm use at the gubmint.)
Fine they can order it but can they hang on to it? Looking at this Government they are experts at losing just about everything.
When Obama ran for office he talked about a civilian police force as strong as the military. Since then, the government has been buying and misplacing military grade weapons and ammunition. My concern is that his brown shirts are arming for a domestic action — an unfortunate electoral outcome or term limits.
It could require a lot of rounds to quell some hard feelings if/when 0bummer suspends presidential term limits and declares himself El Presidente for life so “he has time to finish the job he was elected for.”
Hmmm. How many rounds are out there in private hands?
A gazillion rounds in the hands of idiots like the TSA is of no concern.
McClellans abound in the generalcies of this fed. Can they inspire the troops to take out American citizens?
God help them if they choose that path...
I’m old and don’t much give a damn.
Bring it. They’ll get hungry quick.
The Homeland Security office gearing up for war and Obama loves to spend tax payers money faster than anyone in history.
1)The Social Security Administration requested massive amounts of .357 ammo;
2)the Department of Homeland Security ordered 450 million rounds of ammunition;
3) the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) submitted an order for 46,000 rounds of high powered ammo for the National Marine Fisheries Service,
and 4) DHS wants, in addition to other munition, sniper ammo, as in "two types of .308 caliber rounds. Blank ammunition and 168 grain hollow point boat tail ammunition"
5) United States BORDER PATROL AGENTS cannot fire upon illegal aliens;
6) Marines were told to disarm before Panetta's speech; and
7) Marines have been disarmed at our embassies in hostile countries?
If that’s what they think they need to do...
I’m sure they know best. Good luck feeding everyone.
Logistics can be a bitch. Food. Water. Fuel.
I'm hoping the .308 is the real SAAMI stuff. That 7.62x51 NATO doesn't fit my chamber well.
