Why the DHS Has Purchased 2 Billion Rounds of Ammunition

Why has the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) purchased 2 billion rounds of ammunition in the last 10 months? There has been an increase from 800 million to a staggering 2 billion during just the current administration alone. There are today even more than seventy separate federal law enforcement agencies employing over 120,000 officers with arrest and firearms authority. That’s a growth of officers amounting to just about 30 percent between 2004 and 2008. It’s not the quantity of bullets we have to be concerned about, but instead the number of federal agents with guns that it takes to make use of those bullets. To provide a bit of perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq conflict United States troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. The Federal government will now be domestically armed for a 24-year Iraq war within America. Clearly, this doesn’t add up. Something strange is obviously going on, wouldn’t you agree?

Government Claims

The current administration asserts that federal law enforcement agencies need to have the ammunition for “mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions”. They claim that Federal solicitations to spend money on the bullets are known as “strategic sourcing contracts” that really help the government receive a minimal price for a substantial purchase. The training center run by the Homeland Security Department make use of nearly 15 million rounds every year, primarily on shooting ranges and in training activities. Once again, this simply doesn’t add up.

Hollow Point Bullets?

This past year the Social Security Administration publicized a notice that it was in fact purchasing 174,000 hollow point bullets. What are these kinds of bullets going to be used for by SSA officials? One does not target practice with hollow point ammunition because it is higher in price and would tear objects up. They are, in fact, not even lawful for usage in war.

A solicitation originally posted on December 17 on behalf of the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center professed the necessity for 200 cases of 40 Cal, 180 Grain, Jacketed Hollow Point bullets, with every case containing 1000 rounds, to be shipped almost immediately when the contract is awarded. This is 200,000 hollow point bullets!

Citizens Stocking-Up

There recently has been a huge increase in the purchase of firearms and ammunition by the American public also. They are stocking-up because they realize that these may not be available in the near future. The shelves and supplies of many dealers are becoming empty. Manufacturers are experiencing demand that they cannot keep up with so that there are many long delays on purchase orders.

They are certainly having an arms race against the American citizens and the government is gearing up for total collapse and substantial wars. They could be planning for the collapse of our economic structure, the breakdown of our society and the likelihood of sweeping hostility. It’s not because there’s likely to be a foreign invasion. It’s for the reason that our society may just unravel.

Gun Control Hidden Agenda

Current administration officials in Washington are openly insisting that American citizens have no right to possess firearms as well as ammunition. They are in fact delivering new laws that may soon be enacted to ensure that you cannot do what the government is doing, which is actually stockpiling guns and ammo. A lot of states have already been enacting very restrictive gun control laws that go against the public’s Second Amendment rights along with other Constitutional rights.

Suspiciously, the DHS has even most recently blacked out purchase totals on their official reports site online. This must be due to the backlash that has happened as a result of the outrageous purchase totals being reported by even mainstream media now. It is obvious that they want to keep this information hidden from the general public.


As much as the government thinks that they can cover-up their intentions, the truth is beginning to now come out. This is why events are accelerating so rapidly now. They don’t want increasing opposition to their agenda. Can you guess what their agenda is now?

History may be finding ways to repeat itself in the United States. We may be just like frogs being slowly boiled in hot water so that we don’t notice the changes going on in our nation. Our forefathers could be rolling over in their graves at this point. We must wake up now while we can still do something about what is going on.


PREVIOUSLY: (8/14/2012) Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.

UPDATE: (7/26/2013) Not satisfied with last year’s purchase of 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition for the National Weather Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently solicited bids for an additional 72,000 rounds.

UPDATE: (2/19/2014) DHS Contracted to Purchase 704 Million Rounds of Ammo Over Next 4 Years: 2,500 Rounds Per Officer

UPDATE: (3/4/2014) Ten-Year-Old Suspended For Pointing Finger Like A Gun

UPDATE: (2/26/2015) – OBAMA TO BAN AMMO THROUGH EXECUTIVE ACTION BY LABELING BULLETS “COP KILLERS”. Executive tyranny is now shifting into high gear.

UPDATE: (6/15/2015) – The 4th Purpose of Jade Helm Is the Most Dangerous of All Military assets are being quickly pre-positioned in this nation so that they can be utilized for gun confiscation and the resistance that will follow. This is a VERY informative article which includes a link to a recent video that was picked up and broadcast over the internet showing the transport of military assets within America that indicate a strong possibility of use for gun confiscation. The video is shown below.

I wish you the best of “believing” in all of your future endeavors,
