Posted on 08/26/2012 4:13:29 PM PDT by John Semmens
This year the Department of Homeland Security has purchased a reported 750 million rounds of hollow-point bullets. To help put this in perspective, US troops fighting in Iraq used about 70 million rounds/year.
In an effort to quell apprehensions as to the intent of her agency, Secretary Janet Napolitano emphasized that it is important that the government not be out-gunned by its enemies. We must have the firepower to suppress anyone who may rise against us.
Napolitano also cited the lack of skill of the forces under her command compared to potential enemies. The extra rounds are needed to offset the larger ratio of misses we anticipate may occur should we have to face opponents trained by the NRA or similarly able terrorist-related organizations.

Satire or not, you prolly captured how the cow thinks privately..............
And didn’t the government used to look down on preppers and call them crazy only a couple of years back? So why are they now out-prepping us?
The fact you said they were ordering “Hollow points” should tell you something.
They are NOT for use by the military. Steel jackets only per the Geneva Convention.
Will this ammo be turned over to the UN when they invade the US?
I felt my blood pressure rising, then I looked up and saw it was you! Got me again. Another good one!
Its for Obama’s Gestapo...
Another good one John.
Geneva is about valid military targets.
You’re right. I stand corrected. It was the Hague convention.
