Skip to comments.More sniper ammunition being ordered by DHS. Who are the targets?
Posted on 09/14/2012 8:49:15 PM PDT by LucyT
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.
I am so angry.
"The Public should have complete oversight of the actions of the DHS"
Definite questions that need answers here. BUMP
Because it's what you use to snipe individuals openly carrying their rifles from a range that makes it hard for them to find you and return effective fire.....
its yurr October Surprise!
And I think a log of patriot gun owners will find out where all this ammunition to be used against us is stored...so we can use it against this Commie regime....
Hand-ream if you must. keep a few pristine bores for distance but your close-quarter devices should be able to digest multiple fodder.
thanks for posting that, too; I knew there was yet another (and probably still more such examples), but couldn’t recall what it was.
I’m beyond angry. There is evil intent in all this. Evil plans to be perpetrated against Americans. What other conclusion could one possibly make?
We are the last ones they should wish to come against. I want this country to survive, and am willing to sacrifice to that end.
When they turn inward, the end is nigh.
Another ammo requisition PING
“When Obama ran for office he talked about a civilian police force as strong as the military.”
There is a civilian police force as strong as the military already...it is us, We the People. And We know how to use what we have...and it will be on our turf, not theirs...these silly commie, leftist, liberal, bastards will get what’s coming to ‘em if they ever figure out how to use that ammo, and then try to do so.
Think about it a bit more...Obama is a lousy Commander-In-Chief...he has proven that many times over...how could he lead a ‘civilian police force’? Leon Paneta is just as bad as pretending to be Secy of Defense...he can’t do it. And that crotcity, bitch from Arizona, the lesbo one, is not to be feared...
They better fear ‘We the People’, just as Yamamoto did in WWII.
I will gladly give the Gov’t credit for balance owed on their debt in exchange for several thousand rounds of their ammo.
Something Wicked This Way Comes
What makes you think it's going to be "a constitutional republic" doing so?
Good point. . How much more can we take?
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
“...your close-quarter devices...”
And whether at some distance or at close quarters, our ‘devices’ will out perform theres, ‘cause we know how to use ‘em.
And there is more...when this kind of push comes to shove, the elite military, and civilian Sheriff’s and their deputies will be mostly on our side.
I haven't tried the NATO stuff in the T/C Encore barrel. It might work fine there. All my toys are out of reach. I'm working in San Diego with a rented room until my contract completes. Not using any of my ammo.
We have seen what Hitler, Stalin and Mao did. It is not likely to have traction here in the USA. The leftists already have no firearms as a grop. I think that more US Patriots have .308 and 30-06 than the brown shirts. And how many .338 Lapua do the brown shirts have vs. Patriots?
Several Hundred Billion, I reckon.
300 Million to 500 Million firearms; at least a 1000-round starter kit of ammo for each one. Should be a bunch of it.
That may be true, but what they do have is FAR better organized.
are civilian authorities bound by the Geneva Convention?
All Tea Party members will soon be required to wear a U.S. flag on their arm, to make target identification easy.
And why isn’t a Republican Congress having daily hearings about the accumulation of anti-civilian ammunition? Is no Republican curious about why the government needs to be able to kill so many of its own people?
I am sure that most of the military will uphold their constitutional oath. The communist insurrection will have enemies from two sides. Invest in Washington, DC underwear cleaners.
That's incorrect. First of all it's the Hague Convention of 1899 that prohibits the use of easily expanding/deforming projectiles. Second, our snipers are issued rounds such as the MK316, which is a 7.62 x 51 featuring a 175 gr Sierra HPBT.
"A 1991 US Army Judge Advocate General (JAG, the Armys legal arm) decision held that certain hollow point projectiles were not subject to the Hague Conventions prohibition of such projectiles for use in warfare, as long as the purpose of the open tip was to provide better accuracy or ballistic shape, instead of to enhance bullet expansion."
