Homeland Security to Purchase 25 Million Shotgun Rounds

DHS likely gearing up for mass panic in America with perpetual ammo purchases

April 22, 2014

Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security announced that it is seeking an ammunition dealer who can provide 25 million shotgun rounds to the agency over a five year period, adding to its already enormous arsenal of ammo.

The solicitation posted on FBO.gov states that U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a department under DHS, is seeking “shotgun ammunition for use by all applicable agencies in the Department of Homeland Security,” more specifically three million rounds of shotgun slugs per year and two million rounds of buckshot per year for five years.

“The ammunition will be used as appropriate at all Department of Homeland Security (DHS or department) component locations nationwide and outside the CONUS [continental United States,]” the notice reads.

This is an excessive amount that not only reveals the vast scope of the emerging police state but also fuels fears that DHS is preparing for large-scale mass panic in America.

And as we’ve exhaustively documented in the past, mass ammunition purchases by DHS are becoming quite common.

Earlier this year, Homeland Security stockpiled over 141,000 rounds of .308 Winchester ammunition, a rifle round well-known for its consistency in long-range shooting.

The agency requested 168 grain rounds in particular, which have an effective range of 800 to 900 yards.

And last year, DHS released a market survey asking companies if they were able to provide two million rounds of ammunition under short notice.

The survey also asked companies for both their capabilities in producing “large quantity orders of any training caliber specified” within two months and what their lead time would be for a single order of two million rounds.

It has been estimated that over the past couple of years, DHS ammunition purchases have totaled over 2.5 billion rounds, with much of the ammunition being hollow point rounds known for their effectiveness at stopping human targets.

DHS also spent $80 million on armed guards to protect government facilities in New York last year and even sought more guards for federal buildings in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

More recently, the agency spent over $58 million for security details for two Social Security offices in Maryland.

But that’s not all. Back in March DHS began taking delivery of hundreds and perhaps even thousands of recently retrofitted Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles (MRAP) once used in Iraq and Afghanistan but now destined to roam the streets of America.

While these expenditures reveal that DHS is gearing up for civil unrest, the bulk ammunition purchases in particular are also exacerbating current ammunition shortages across America in what can be described as back-door gun control.

And it isn’t just DHS making large-scale ammunition purchases.

Last February, the United States Postal Service announced it was seeking “proposals for assorted small arms ammunition.” After intense scrutiny, USPS later claimed that the mass purchases were for its Postal Police.

But there is a massive arms build-up by just about every federal agency in existence. Even the U.S. Dept. of Education has been stockpiling firearms and ammunition since at least 2001.

Considering how well-armed Bureau of Land Management agents were during the recent standoff at Bundy Ranch, the increased militarization of government agencies is frightening indeed.

Note: Despite the overwhelming evidence that DHS and other federal agencies are clearly engaged in a massive arms build-up, with billions of rounds, armored vehicles and cutting-edge weaponry, the mainstream media has continued to either outright deny or downplay what is going on. For example, in an article entitled Homeland Security’s Ammunition Purchases Should Not Worry You, the Military Times claimed that the ammo build-up was not excessive. The article also suggested that having 100,000 DHS armed agents in America, which is a de facto standing army, was not a bad thing. Other media outlets, such as Media Matters and Raw Story, have also made similar statements. Yet it is becoming crystal clear what is happening in America as these articles below present a glaring trend:

Another stupid ammo post that is only for trying to scare Americans into another stupid panic.

STOP POSTING THIS SCARE TACTIC BS!

Infowars is a joke and wrong 99% of the time. All that site is good for is causing panic based on incorrect information. They have been making these same amount of purchases for years.

Put up or shut up...back your statement up. (you can't) I could school you on just how wrong your statement is but it would just be wasted energy.

Stories from Infowars are toplinked on the Drudge report almost every week now. But I guess you would discredit Drudge as a "conspiracy news aggregator"

How amazingly stupid. You tell me to put up or shut up, yet in the very next sentence you won't put up. Talk about stupidity and hypocrisy all rolled up into one post.

Like I said before it would be wasted energy and I have a JOB.

It is easy enough for anyone with internet access to cross reference actual events of the past two decades to archived Infowars news stories vs what was reported in the main stream media.

Blame ammo horders. Once everyone jumped on the Obama is coming for our guns and ammo bandwagon which went nowhere, all the shooters bought up everything and started reselling it for top dollar.

Nice excuse.

The Shortage's are not shortage's : Just re- location of allocated resources: Need LOTS

Why do you think we wear Carbon and Kevlar hat's ? even armor in the front but NONE in Back We go Forward.

Has to do with the Land of Glory & With the Saint's we Will Tell our Story.

Every body get's a few spare pocket's full So when we drink our Whiskey /we get to scream and shoot em in the air !. Beat our drum's and dance around the fire with our Bibles

Those Kevlar Fiber Metal's are for the metal rain that fall's down

Watch out for the goofies that save their tracer's for the daytime and really goofier one with golf bag on wheels that whistles all the time and has that pigeon eye that look's around corner's.
