DHS Now With 1 Billion Rounds Of Ammo?

August 16, 2012, by Ken Jorgustin


The latest in a string of ammunition orders by non-military branches of the federal government comes from the Social Security Administration which is set to purchase 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets that will be delivered to 41 locations across the country. The Social Security Administration?? Really?

This recent ammo purchase comes right on the heels of an order for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets from none other than the National Weather Service?! (NOAA later claimed a clerical error and that the ammunition is for the Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement)

Several months ago, DHS (Department of Homeland Security) purchased 450,000,000 rounds of .40 caliber hollow point bullets and shortly afterwards placed an order for 750,000,000 rounds of various calibers including 357 mag.

These ammo purchases have been widely reported on similar blogs and related sites lately including many articles from and a recent interesting post on (pointing out new DHS redaction on ammo purchase documents, apparently trying to hide their activity). By the way, Mac Slavo says “…the only legal reasons for redacting government related documents is through a Congressional mandate or a national security issue.”

Do they know something that we don’t? Is there an urgent need? Are they all preparing for civil unrest resulting from an upcoming major economic collapse? A national security issue?

Or is a billion rounds of ammunition business as usual for DHS? Either way, it seems noteworthy enough to point out to the readers of this blog. Take it or leave it…
