I just don't think people are reading carefully enough on these "1 billion"-round purchases. http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/large+government+ammo+purchase

Read the above carefully, please. ATK was awarded a contract by DHS for (UP TO A MAXIMUM) of 450M rounds of .40 caliber ammunition "OVER 5 YEARS". If you do the math, that's roughly 90M rounds/yr IF the options are exercised. If a figure of 30% of DHS are "carrying" is reasonable, then 30% of 208,000 (total DHS staff) is 62,400 that are carrying. That means 1,442 rounds/yr per person, or about 120 rounds per month.

Is this less scary? Actually, not in my books, but still, not as scary as a single delivery of "a billion" rounds.

Quoth the Obamaführer:

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
