From Market Daily News:
Paul Joseph Watson: While the Obama administration sets out to eviscerate the gun rights of American citizens in the aftermath of Sandy Hook, earlier this week it was announced that the Department of Homeland Security has awarded a company a contract worth over $45,000 dollars to provide the DHS with 200,000 more rounds of bullets.
This new purchase adds to the staggering figure of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition already secured by the DHS over the last 9 months alone.
A solicitation originally posted on the FedBizOpps.gov website on December 17 on behalf of the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center advertised the need for 200 cases of 13–40 Cal, 180 Grain, Jacketed Hollow Point bullets, with each case containing 1000 rounds, to be delivered almost immediately as soon as the contract is awarded.
So I’m just asking. And don’t tell me that the DHS needs all of this ammunition for training. You do the math. Assume (as an enveloping case) that the DHS consists of 15,000 agents who need yearly qualification. Divide 1.6 billion by 15,000, and you get more than 100,000 rounds of handgun ammunition per agent.
If each qualifying agent shot 1000 rounds per day, he could practice for 100 days at that rate before needing more ammunition. This shooting rate is something nearing equivalence with Marine infantry and Army special forces doing pre-deployment workups for combat.
You do the math.
