Why is the Department of Homeland Security buying so many bullets?

Please note that what you are looking at, is an ammunition supply that should normally last 100 years.
That number is based on the contention that they “use as many as 15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises.”
They would not tell a lie. Would they?
Training ammo is usually full metal jacket rounds.
Hollow point ammo is anti-personnel ammo.  It is also more expensive.
Reportedly, the Border Patrol is not allowed to use live ammo, on the job.
Not even for self-defense.  Reportedly…
.
Fox News’ Bill “Oreally” O’Reilly is  reportedly pushing for a national registration.
Fox News is just trying to “calm irrational fears”.  Right?
Propaganda is powerful. It works on a lot of people, including those who are well aware.
The Pentagon has gamed the collapse of the US dollar and “we” lost.  When the US dollar collapses, the economy will collapse.  This will lead to unrest, anarchy and crime.  Never mind that the globalists caused all of our problems.  They will be there to restore and maintain order.  Even if they have to kill us, to do it.
These ammunition purchases have only two purposes.
Absorb a substantial quantity of market supplies.
And, you should know that the targets are those that survive the unrest, anarchy and crime.

Why is the Department of Homeland Security buying so many bullets?

Online rumors about a big government munitions purchase are true, sort of.

The Homeland Security Department wants to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the next four or five years. It says it needs them — roughly the equivalent of five bullets for every person in the United States — for law enforcement agents in training and on duty.

Published federal notices about the ammo buy have agitated conspiracy theorists since the fall. That’s when conservative radio host Alex Jones spoke of an “arms race against the American people” and said the government was “gearing up for total collapse, they’re gearing up for huge wars.”

The government’s explanation is much less sinister.
