DHS Purchases 200 Million More Rounds of Ammunition

Additional purchase includes bullets designated for snipers

Following controversy over its purchase of around 1.2 billion bullets in the last six months alone, the Department of Homeland Security has put out a new solicitation for over 200 million more rounds of ammunition, some of which are designated to be used by snipers.

A series of new solicitations posted on the FedBizOpps website show that the DHS is looking to purchase 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition over the next four years, as well as 176,000 rounds of .308 caliber 168 grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) rounds in addition to 25,000 rounds of blank .308 caliber bullets.

As James Smith over at the Prepper Podcast website highlights, “It is the type of ammunition and not necessarily the quantity that is troubling.”

Smith points out that the DHS’ acquisition of .308 rounds is of concern because they are set to be used by well-trained snipers.

“All of the sniper grade ammunition is being used by trained, or in-the-process-of-being-trained snipers,” writes Smith, noting that the math adds up to 135,384 potential kills for the snipers to make, using the 176,000 rounds of ammunition, basing the figures on the fact that United States Army and Marine Corps snipers in the Vietnam War expended 1.3 rounds of ammunition for each claimed and verified kill.

As this police training website documents, .308 caliber 168 grain bullets are the ammunition of choice for experienced law enforcement snipers.

The number of bullets purchased by the DHS now adds up to a staggering 1.4 billion over the last six months alone. Although all those bullets won’t be delivered at once, the DHS’ commitment to purchasing such an arsenal of ammo is both worrying and ironic given that Americans are being harassed and treated with suspicion for buying a couple of boxes of ammo at their local gun store.

Following a barrage of questions about why the federal agency has purchased so many bullets, the DHS has refused to respond and even gone to the lengths of censoring information relating to solicitations for ammunition.

The DHS’ decision back in March to purchase of 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage prompted questions as to why the federal agency required such powerful bullets and in such large quantities merely for training purposes.

This was followed up by a more recent order for a further 750 million rounds of assorted ammunition, including bullets that can penetrate walls.

The mainstream media responded to the controversy by focusing on a purchase of 174,000 bullets by the Social Security Administration while completely ignoring the fact that the DHS had purchased well over a billion rounds.

Although the Associated Press and other media outlets dismissed concerns over the federal government purchasing large quantities of ammunition as paranoia, the fact that the DHS is preparing for civil unrest cannot be denied.

Having recently acquired riot gear, the DHS also purchased a number of bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.

Last year, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed ICE 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 U.S. Army has also been preparing for domestic disorder.

A recently leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a, “Warning shot will not be fired.”

The manual includes lists of weapons to be used against “rioters” or “demonstrators,” including “antiriot grenades.” It also advises troops to carry their guns in the “safe port arms” stance, a psychological tactic aimed at “making a show of force before rioters.” Non-lethal weapons and water cannons are also included.

 that explanation that Bush43 and Obama have imported several thousand Russian commandos to work with treasonous minorities of American troops to do a lightening raid against loyal American troops and the government. Chinese troops amassed to the south in Mexico with much equipment also could be a reality. Though a 'communist' label is being put on this 'sure to fail' operation, if it indeed exists, the true source of motivation clearly is The English Crown, that alliance of British royals and the Rothschild bank and the city of London. Any physical, military invasion is designed to cripple American's confidence in their government. Obama and the Bush criminal cabal are loyal to Britannia and traitors to the U.S. constitutional government. The unanswered attacks and presidential pardon of BP/Halliburton and protection of GE for Fukushima should convince one of traitors within the walls.

 Communism is a tool to control large masses of people through control of land and the food supply. It is a logical progression from what we have being done to us today in America. Millions of repossessed homes, stifled credit when bank credit is due, export of factories and businesses, Wall Street looting allowed to run amok by a CJ SEC and FTC, in place since instituted by Bush43, HAARP attacks, etc., all allowed to do their damage. High time the American people woke the fuch up. I know many can not. 90% do not want to.

   Most likely these extra rounds are for Bush41's criminal cabal DHS, TSA, FEMA, and other no-talent genetic slag who are frustrating themselves out of the love of life itself, and may be more than willing to shoot Americans for queen lizard or whoever occupies the White house. Or, it could be that the Bush cabal is heavily invested in these munitions dealers and producers. Or even more likely, both. Bush is the ranking member of the U.S. chapter of the Skull and Bones society, who have been murdering, slave trading, and looting for England for over 300 years.

So the mobile resupply pods will have .308 on them along with either a nice semi 308 or a very nice bolt sniper rifle! Excellent!  Everyone make sure to also buy .40cal handguns as that ammo will be plentiful.
