... In the aftermath of the recent Sandy Hook shooting, Obama and his cohorts are screaming about how they all despise guns and ammo.
Guns are the problem in America today -- we've been told from every corner of the media -- and so the only solution is to get rid of all the guns.
But not exactly...
There's one organization in America that's loading up on masses of assault rifles and enough ammunition to run a 10-year shooting war. That organization is, of course, the U.S. federal government and its Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which has purchased a total of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition to be used domestically, inside the United States.
It begs the question: Why does the Department of Homeland Security need 1.6 billion rounds of ammo?
... The DHS began all this in April of this year, with the purchase of 450 million rounds of hollow point .40 caliber ammunition. This is significant for two reasons:
DHS does not fight wars with foreign nations. Its entire theater of operations is on U.S. soil, dealing solely with the American people.
|2.||Hollow point ammunition is banned by the Geneva convention and is not used by the U.S. military. This ammunition can only be used domestically, in the United States, against U.S. targets or people.|
Along with these 450 million rounds of ammunition, DHS also purchased $400,000 worth of radiation protection pills and thousands of bullet-proof roadside checkpoint booths. Is it expecting a radiological event?
These 450 million rounds of ammo, Natural News calculated, is enough to wage a seven-year war with the American people.
You can see, the original federal purchase document requesting all this ammunition. The numbers in the document, by the way, are in thousands.
In it, you'll discover that the U.S. government has also purchased all the following ammunition in addition to the 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point "anti-personnel" ammo:
|•||Over 1 million rounds of hollow-point .223 rifle ammo|
|•||Over half a million rounds of non-hollow-point .223 rifle ammo|
|•||220,000 rounds of 12 gauge shotgun #7 ammo (target ammo)|
|•||Over 200,000 rounds of 12 gauge shotgun #00 buckshot ammo (tactical anti-personnel ammo)|
|•||66,000 rounds of 12 gauge shotgun slugs (tactical anti-personnel, anti-vehicle rounds)|
|•||Over 2 million rounds of hollow-point .357 Sig JPH (hollow-point) pistol ammo (anti-personnel)|
|•||Over 4 million rounds of .40 S&W JPH (hollow-point) pistol ammo (anti-personnel)|
|•||Over 60,000 rounds of .308 match grade anti-personnel sniper rounds (BTHP)|
|•||Plus, hundreds of thousands of additional rounds of .38 special, .45 auto, 9mm, 7.62x39 (AK rifle) ammo, and others.|
A few months after buying the 450-plus million rounds of ammo... the DHS then went on to purchase another 750 million rounds of ammunition.
Additional contracts were added after that, bringing the grand total of government ammo purchases in 2012 to 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.
That's over five bullets for every American man, woman, and child. It also includes long-range sniper rounds.
By comparison, 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...
