Tomorrow marks Patriots Day, a day to commemorate the deaths of innocent Americans at the hands of terrorists.
Sadly, Patriots are considered terrorists by this government. So the government stockpiles more and more ammunition.
In the last week alone, nearly 700 million dollars has been allocated for the purchase of firearms and ammunition by a variety of agencies within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
This week, ICE has solicited for the purchase of 12 Gauge 00 Buck Reduced Recoil shotgun rounds, made by the Federal Cartridge Corporation. Typically, in a solicitation, a set quantity is established. But in an effort similar to the TSA’s request for over $950,000,000 in explosive storage lockers, only an upper limit dollar amount is provided.
In this case, $524,043.20 has been allocated. At the estimated cost at the first link, that results in approximately 403,110 rounds. If they purchased the same rounds at their local Wal-Mart, then the cost would drop to approximately 26 cents a round or 2,015,550 rounds. But knowing government waste, they’ll probably pay 2 bucks a round and call it a savings.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
This week, CBP has requested the purchase of 287 Remington 870 shotguns to augment their armories. According to supporting documentation, only 125 shotguns are being requested. This is either a Scribner’s error, or is intentional. The total dollar amount is $159,698.75
Even in the midst of a budget crisis, this government agency has been stocking piling these weapons like a Prepper stockpiles beans and rice.
In September 2009, 200 shotguns were solicited for, but were cancelled the next day.
In May 2010, 170 shotguns were purchased in a sole source solicitation. No dollar amount was posted with this solicitation
CPB has also requested 40,000 rounds 308 Ammunition for their “training”. The Hornady 308 Caliber, 168 Grain A-MAX TAP ammunition it was originally designed for law enforcement so that they would have a bullet that would kill bad guys but not beyond the intended target. The light jacket works well on human flesh but fragments upon striking anything substantial, especially brick, concrete, or cars.
The cost of this ammunition ranges from 40 to 48 cents apiece, meaning that on average, CBP is looking to spend over $14,000.

- Homeland Security continues to suck the ammunition supply dry
- Defense Department Rots While Social Security Administration Gets Spoiled
- Summer ammunition buys for Government Agencies may cause shortages
At some point, this must all be explained. Because of the lack of explanation, theories abound. According to Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”
- “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
- “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”
- “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
- “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”
It seems this administration is living up to the Collective’s ideology. Fear of the unknown is a good weapon, so they use it like a cloak of invisibility. But one day, that cloak will be cast away.
