DHS Buys 200,000 More Rounds of Ammunition


Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

This is the type of article that Alex Jones is famous for getting everyone all riled up.

I question if he runs his usual red flag operations for or against the U.S. Government. 

For instance why the purchase of 40 cal ammunition when the 45 cal is a far more popular weapon.

The House of Representatives must authorize this spending, unless it is buried in an amendment of an unrelated bill.  Does congress know this is going on?

Could the government be buying up said ammunition to causes shortages and prices to rise?   Do we know that the orders have actually been filled?

I have no clue.

I do know the following, Hollow Point ammunition is not used for target shooting. 

It is said that shooters will train with what they use in combat,  so why did DHS purchase almost half a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, banned by the Hague Convention of 1899 for use in international warfare, that is carefully designed to kill its intended targets?
When Maj. Gen. Jerry Curry confirmed these suspicions in his article for Stansberry Report, it became clear that the Obama Administration has not been honest with the public concerning the current mass stockpiling of ammunition.Curry stated,

“Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows.”

In addition, Curry noted that during the Iraq War the U.S. military used 70 million rounds of ammunition per year. Compare that with the 750 million rounds of hollow point bullets that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered in March. And then it further ordered another 750 million rounds of various types of ammunition, some of which can penetrate walls. Curry declared,

This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about?

What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public.

I fear that Congress won’t take these ammunition purchases seriously until they are all led from Capitol Hill in handcuffs.

Why buy all this ammunition unless you plan to use it. Unknown to Congress, Does DHS plan to declare war on some country?

Shouldn’t Congress hold hearings on why the Administration is stockpiling this ammunition all across the nation? How will it be used; what are the Administration’s plans?

Americans have no good answers to these questions since the DHS is now refusing to respond to media inquires on the subject.

While the Obama administration sets out to eviscerate the gun rights of American citizens in the aftermath of Sandy Hook, earlier this week it was announced that the Department of Homeland Security has awarded a company a contract worth over $45,000 dollars to provide the DHS with 200,000 more rounds of bullets.

This new purchase adds to the staggering figure of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition already secured by the DHS over the last 9 months alone.

DHS-AmmoPurchaseFederal government continues to arm itself to the teeth while Obama administration pushes gun control

A solicitation originally posted on the FedBizOpps.gov website on December 17 on behalf of the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center advertised the need for 200 cases of 13–40 Cal, 180 Grain, Jacketed Hollow Point bullets, with each case containing 1000 rounds, to be delivered almost immediately as soon as the contract is awarded.

The bullets are to be delivered to a training site in North Charleston, South Carolina, which “specializes in Maritime Law Enforcement and Port Security Training. Basic and advanced training programs are conducted in concert with the U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Law Enforcement Academy, the U.S. Courts Probation and Pretrial Services Training Academy, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Training Academy, the Customs and Border Protection Field Operations Academy, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.” ( The rest below)

The winner of the contract to provide the DHS with the ammunition, announced on January 2, was Evian Group Inc., an organization that was formed just five days before the announcement of the solicitation.

As James Smith documents, Evian Group seems to be little more than a front organization and doesn’t appear to have any real business assets, a genuine physical address, a website, or even a phone number.

Back in August, the Department of Homeland Security censored information relating to the amount of bullets purchased by the DHS 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.

The information was blacked out despite the fact that documents are only supposed to be redacted if authorized by Congress or for national security reasons.

The contradiction of the Obama administration preaching gun control while simultaneously the federal government arms itself to the teeth with an arsenal that would be enough to wage a full scale 7 year ground war is jaw-dropping.

As Mike Adams highlights, “A citizen is considered to be a stockpiling “terrorist” prepper if they own just 1,000 rounds of ammo. The government, however, can purchase billions and the mainstream media doesn’t even question it.”

“Where is all this ammunition going? It’s being stockpiled by the federal government, awaiting some future event during which it will apparently be “activated.” Why else would you stockpile something if you don’t anticipate needing to use it someday?”

“During all this, Obama and his cohorts in Washington are loudly insisting that American citizens have no right to purchase firearms or ammunition, and that new laws will soon be enacted to make sure you cannot do what the government does: stockpile weapons and ammo.”

Indeed, the double standard is staggering and while Americans are being raided for stockpiling “arsenals” of weapons that subsequently turn out to be no more than a few guns, the federal government is simultaneously building a very real and substantial arsenal while the mainstream media turns a blind eye.

  1. As with Hitler take the guns and then total tryanny and massive deaths. I beleive Obama is on this path. If noone questions all these purchases while the same admin. is trying to grab guns from the public then those that sit and watch are just as at fault as this admin. But either way this is not good for anyone.

  2. And according to the Geneva Convention, a waring nation CANNOT use hollow point ammo as it is definitely known to be a person killer. So WHY, WHO and WHERE are the questions which need to be answered…

  3. HI Jim… I have a contact in N.Chaz HLS…. no knowledge of this, and he would know. And I can assure you, that if there’s ammo in SC and shit hits the fan… Presidential Orders be damned, they’ll most likely go to civilian hands…we still don’t like Yankees anyway. As to exactly why the orders are for hollow points is unclear, but N.Chas is home to a defense contractor where they do arms testing/destructive testing which is a possibility however unlikely. Rather, I’d bet those rounds (or money) disappear down the same dark road like 6 of our UAV’s did!

    More: I’d check with the freedom of information: gov’t contracts are open for review, right? open and closed dates? That many .40 cal is just strange! I’d also look into H&K UMP.40cal. sub-machine gun orders (Heckler & Koch), this round just isn’t used that much. Such an increase, there would be an increase in armored protection/additional gear. To purchase that many rounds in addition to an order from Winchester Arms for 200 million in 2009 (reported by gunreports.com) and other orders since, for an odd, low power caliber???? Makes no sense! Either it’s an effort to tie up manufacturers in order to drive up prices…or it’s some type of pay-off. It fly’s in the face of UN Agenda 21… I’d look into misdirection/payola! (Red Flag)

  4. And they tell us we can’t have guns because? Our weapons won’t be worth anything with the ammunition they are stockpiling! Answer questions? Are you joking? They ask the questions, answering is not part of their program. Better pray things aren’t moving toward what it appears they are because we are in for a very ugly future if they do.
