In light of the federal government purchasing 7,000 fully automatic weapons for “their own protection,” something is going on.

As I visit local gun stores, and sites to purchase ammunition  everything is on back order, I mean everything. 

There remains an outside possibility that the orders are placed but not filled as part of a red flag distraction exercise. 

If so where is the ammunition at the gun stores.

A little know fact, manufacturers of weapons and ammunition must fill orders to the federal government before We the People.

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.

A solicitation posted yesterday on the Fed Bid website details how the bullets are required for the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico.

The solicitation asks for 10 million pistol cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds) and 10 million 9mm 115 grain jacketed hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds).

The document also lists a requirement for 1.6 million pistol cartridge 9mm ball bullets (40 quantities of 40,000 rounds).

An approximation of how many rounds of ammunition the DHS has now secured over the last 10 months stands at around 1.625 billion. In March 2012, ATK announced that they had agreed to provide the DHS with a maximum of 450 million bullets over four years, a story that prompted questions about why the feds were buying ammunition in such large quantities. In September last year, the federal agency purchased a further 200 million bullets.

To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.

Such massive quantities of ammo purchases have stoked fears that the agency is preparing for some kind of domestic unrest. In 2011, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed Immigration and Customs Enforcement to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.

The federal agency’s primary concern is now centered around thwarting “homegrown terrorism,” but information produced and used by the DHS to train its personnel routinely equates conservative political ideology with domestic extremism.

A study funded by the Department of Homeland Security that was leaked last year characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

In August 2012, the DHS censored information relating to the amount of bullets purchased by the federal agency on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement, citing an “unusual and compelling urgency” to acquire the bullets, noting that there is a shortage of bullets which is threatening a situation that could cause “substantial safety issues for the government” should law enforcement officials not be adequately armed.

As we highlighted last month, the DHS’ previous ammunition solicitation was awarded to Evian Group, an organization that was formed just five days before the announcement of the solicitation and appeared to be little more than a front organization since it didn’t have a genuine physical address, a website, or even a phone number.

While Americans are being browbeaten with rhetoric about the necessity to give up semi-automatic firearms in the name of preventing school shootings, the federal government is arming itself to the teeth with both ammunition and guns. Last September, the DHS purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”

  1. Which is why anyone truly serious about keeping himself in ammunition should the worst come to the worst, must learn to reload his own rounds. With a little practice and some concentration, 100 rounds of, say, .45 cal auto can be loaded in 45 minutes or so with no problem.
    And those still paying $85 for 100 rounds of .45 Colt can reload their 2nd 100 rounds for appx $17.00! I have YET to see any good sized gun store run out and remain out of bullets, dies, powder, primers or shells.

  2. He is running scared. He also withdrew the Blimps flying over the Mexican/U.S. Border to fly over his little house.

    Within 24-48 hrs of that even was when Chris (Sniper) was murdered.
    I would advise (no, I can’t prove it)…that other Military Snipers become invisible. That man is very afraid to the point it is now a psychosis.
    He BUILT THIS HIMSELF!

    hmmm…wonder if he is sleeping in the tunnels “under” the WH vs. his own bed now.

  3. Some think so much ammo is being purchased so that less is available to the public. Add to this that the sale of expended brass cartridges is forbidden, preventing hunters making their own bullets.
    Where is all the purchased ammunition being kept? why do all of these government agencies need guns and ammunition? Our Congress should be asking these questions.
    One poster wondered if the administration is preparing to bunker down if/when the Supreme Court does its job on Feb. 15 and finds Obama ineligible

  4. John Baldwin MD, FACS, Major, US Army

    Of course, the real question is: “For whom are these rounds intended?” Certainly not the illegals crossing the border…as you recall, a Border Patrol officer was killed when he tried to protect himself with a BEAN BAG gun, certainly not for the folks in Cook County who voted four times even if dead. So who could it be for? And guess what…nobody, but nobody reports this stuff so NOBODY will believe it.

  5. What makes DHS believe an all-out guerrilla war would tiurn on the volume of small arms fire…? This is not 1860.

  6. There are any number of possibilities; DHS and others may be ordering massive quantities in order to make guns and ammo “unavailable” to the general public. Yes, they may be preparing to “hunker down”, or, even launch a massive, murderous campaign against the general public. One of three things should happen right about now; one-Congress should “shut them off”; two – the manufacturers should “shut them off” and three – WE THE PEOPLE need to find their warehouses and raid them!

  7. The question should be “Why are WE put in the derogatory title of Conspiracy Theorist that they have instructed their MainStreet Media to pin on US, when WE ask questions about the DUCK that looks, sounds, and quacks like a DUCK ?”

  8. In all seriousness – -“find the DHS warehouses”, disable their security cameras, “drop in, at night” and clean them out; air chopper and a few husky guys, rope ladders, back packs; you know the drill.

  9. On the backside, you need a wholesaler/distributor to “sell” the goods, or set up your own distribution network ahead of time!
