Wouldn’t it be nice to find out which Ammo Company takes the Job? And then we find out the Company tells all the Civilians who aren’t part of the DHS to “Be Patient, we’re working HARD to fill your order!” Then we can BoyCott the Bastards who decided to Feed the Cops who are trying to take away our Guns!
OR the Ammo Industry can tell the DHS to get in Line and wait your turn.
I love how Drudge links to the tinfoil hats, who are getting all worked up, “OMG, FEMA CAMPS! BLACK HELICOPTERS!!1!”
Seriously, there are like 200,000 DHS employees. If even 10%, or 20,000, of them are actually armed and required to qualify with pistols, this is about 1,000 rounds a piece. 10-15 magazines of ammo downrange, four times a year. Not exactly commando training.
Of course, being .gov types, they probably don’t actually go every quarter, but I bet the 10% number is low, and they “lose” quite a bit of ammo each year.
Except the order isn’t for 21 million rounds, it’s for 240,000 rounds, delivered to a training center. If you look at the order, the first two items listed are for 100,000 rounds each, and the third is for 40,000 rounds.
