WND recently reported that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has purchased well over a billion rounds of ammunition over the past year.
The magnitude of the federal government’s ammunition buildup has made headlines as members of the military, police departments and consumers find shelves bare.

Who is our Government planning to shoot?
Fearless Leader is gearing up for a potential uprising by the citizens who aren’t infatuated with his persona.
And just where does the FBI get its money, hmmm?
Wouldn’t it be ironic if we’re all getting ready to be shot with ammo that we’ve had to pay for?
I want a refund.
Actually, I believe the plan is for the feral government to take the second Amend. to heart, and now that they've used all this tax money on billions of bullets, to dole out, free of charge, 6 hollow points to every man, woman and child, with a mandate to go to the range for target practice. Thus, we will all become a bit more experienced is using firearms. They truly are beneficent!
1500 rounds per agent per year (at $1/round). OK by me. Non-story.
They were going to spend $101 million on ammo but had to reduce the size of the order because of the draconian Sequester cuts.
Follow the money. Who is getting the bullet contract?
The dollar is going to collapse.
They continue to print dollars to cover their debts.
You can’t do that indefinitely without consequences.
When the welfare checks stop coming, when the EBT cards all have zero balances, when there’s no food on the shelves, no gas to pump, no electricity and no water, American cities will become your worst nightmare.
The ammunition and armored vehicles are mostly for them, but we in the country are in their sights, too.
Get ready ...
Just a rough estimate but wouldn’t this be in the neighborhood of 340,000,000 rounds (varying of course on the type of mix)?
Ahem....April Fools Day is NEXT week
“$100 million on ammo “
If they don’t hurry up, that will just get them about 1 can of 1000 rounds.....
Here is some informed perspective:
I got some ammunition to sell if you want to pay $1/round.
Maybe these huge ammo buys are meant to dry up the market for a while making the costs go up and hard to find. If you can’t confiscate the guns, buy up the ammo.
yeah, no kidding.
Is this American made ammo?
Do they plan to use it from drones?
DHS ACTUALLY bought 148 million rounds in 2012.
This is a hopeless fight against overwhelming stupidity and lies, but the infamous "billions" of rounds contract was:
1) Spread over FIVE YEARS
2) An IDIQ Contract specifying "Up To" amounts. They don't HAVE TO buy the stated amounts, they HAVEN'T bought the stated amounts already, and the almost certainly will NOT buy anywhere close to the stated "up to" amounts. For the up to amount in an IDIQ you put in a truly enormous number that you are sure your actual purchases won't possibly reach.
Anyone stating that DHS has purchased billions of rounds in the last year is either an idiot or a liar.
“When the welfare checks stop coming, when the EBT cards all have zero balances, when theres no food on the shelves, no gas to pump, no electricity and no water, American cities will become your worst nightmare.”
If that scenario happens, when the economy crashes, then it might be just like the world envisioned in Solyent Green. In that movie, there is no food on the shelves, not much gas is left, only cold water is had, and electricity is so low that many times homes use candles and flashlights as rolling blackouts occur or the power runs out. Very similar situation. And of course, the government was killing off people who knew too much about their plans.
Imagine if on top of that martial law is declared?
I wonder what they are going to do with four boxes of 22LR? /SARC
