I’ve no clue what to make of the following. I’m just putting it out there; and it confuses me. If you are more schooled in this stuff than I am, please clue me in so I can set the record straight.
I know nothing about bullets, except from what I learned watching Rambo, but over the last several months the Department of Homeland Security has executed requests for upwards of a billion rounds of hollow point bullets… for training purposes. Why do they need hollow point bullets for training purposes?
Hollow point bullets are designed to expand as they enter the body, causing maximum damage by tearing apart internal organs.
Perhaps I sort of understand the purchase, since the Department of Homeland Security is border patrol…. even though the current administration is all about illegal immigrants and is, in fact, signing up illegals as voters as we speak. Again, the order noted the ammunition was for training…
But then it gets really weird…
The National Weather Service wants some too! Why the fuck would the National Weather Service buy 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets? They need to figure out the weather; but why a need for bullets?
And then there’s this…
The Social Security Administration has requested 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets. What does this agency need ammunition for??
Earlier this year the Department of Homeland Security ran a drill called Operation Shield which included turning the entrance of a Florida Social Security office into a checkpoint manned by Federal Protective Service officers armed with semiautomatic rifles.
That’s just creepy…
The Department of Homeland Security recently put out an order for riot gear in preparation for the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration. The U.S. Army is also busy buying similar equipment.
Is this election going to get that ugly?
Why are the National Weather Service and Social Security Administration purchasing ammunition?
Is the government preparing to clamp down on some major civil unrest?
