It is now being reported that the USPS is the latest Federal office to solicit bids for ammunition. This on the heals to many other departments stocking up:
- NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) – 46,000 rounds – mostly hollow point
- Department of Homeland Security – now has a stockpile of 1.6BILLION rounds. Currently in the process of buying 20 million more rounds. I guess five rounds for every man, woman, and child in the U.S. is not enough.
- Department of Agriculture – 320,000 rounds
- FBI – 100,000,000 rounds
- Social Security – 174,000 rounds – expecting a senior citizen rebellion I guess.
Why does DHS having 1,600,000,000 rounds of ammo NOT make me feel more secure? We have been using approximately 70million rounds in Iraq per year. If DHS used that many a year it would take almost 23 years to use them up. The DHS has also been buying bullet proof checkpoint booths.
