DHS To Purchase "Another" 750 Million Rounds Of Ammo

Second massive ammunition buy this year fuels fears of civil unrest

Fears that federal authorities are preparing for mass civil unrest have increased after it was revealed that the Department of Homeland Security is planning to buy a further 750 million rounds of ammo in addition to the 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets already purchased earlier this year.

A solicitation originally issued by the DHS in April but updated on Friday calls on suppliers to provide a plethora of different types of ammunition, including 357 mag rounds that are able to penetrate walls.

The PDF file for the solicitation lists the different units of ammo required by the thousand, with the total ammo purchase exceeding 750 million rounds.

“The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), Glynco, Georgia anticipates awarding multiple award indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity (IDIQ) firm fixed price (FFP) contracts for commercial leaded training ammunition (CLTA) of various calibers for law enforcement officer firearms training courses at the following FLETC facilities Glynco, GA, Artesia, NM, Cheltenham, MD and Charleston, SC and to other Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies. The Government guarantees a minimum of 1,000 rounds per year on each resultant contract. Contracts will be for a base year and four (4) 12 month option periods,” states the synopsis.

Potential suppliers are required to respond to the solicitation before August 20.

The purchase comes in addition to an order for 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets which wasfulfilled by Alliant Techsystems Inc. back in March, news greeted by some as an indication that the DHS was arming itself in preparation to go to war with the American people.

Although the ammo purchases are ostensibly earmarked for training purposes, the DHS has been reticent to clarifywhy such an unusually large amount of rounds are necessary and why such powerful bullets are required merely for training drills.

This has led to speculation that the purchases are connected to confirmed preparations for civil unrest in the United States.

The DHS 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.

The DHS also recently purchased a number of bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.

A recently leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a, “Warning shot will not be fired.”

The manual includes lists of weapons to be used against “rioters” or “demonstrators,” including “antiriot grenades.” It also advises troops to carry their guns in the “safe port arms” stance, a psychological tactic aimed at “making a show of force before rioters.” Non-lethal weapons and water cannons are also included.

The increasing likelihood of a full blown financial collapse in the coming months has also spurred federal agencies and the U.S. Army to hone their preparations for domestic disorder on a scale greater than riots witnessed in Europe over the past two years.

A 2008 report produced by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” stated the report, authored by [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir, adding that the military may be needed to quell “purposeful domestic resistance”.

Last year, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed ICE to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.

      Anyone that sells these proven terrorist ammo are Traitors, our federal government are Traitors we’ve been infiltrated, don’t sell these punks ammo to be used against the American people. All federal employee’s are under arrest for High Treason.

    • terry the censor

      So…you’re worried about the DHS buying ammo but NOT about nutbars who actually shoot people?

      • James Smith

        Anyone that supports arming the proven DHS Traitors, that infiltrated our federal government, overtly confess to complicity and makes you subject to arrest as a Traitor yourself, word play is ove, pick a side it’s Traitors or Patriots, I would kill anyone that violates the U.S. Constitution, period, I am not a play toy. I can’t handle the Treason anymore, your done running your Traitor mouth on lamestream media news as propaganda control over dumbass America’s watching the dumbass Olympics, while Treasonous Traitors fill their war chests against the American people.

          I’m with you. WAAAYYY too tired of the destruction of our constitution. We need to start executing traitors. And we need to start counting a traitor as anyone that knowingly damages our constitution. So essentially we need a couple hundred new politicians. Because we have just a few that need executing right now. Destroying the constitution is treason. Treason is punishable by death. We need to start executing these people before they start executing us.

        One nutbar is not nearly the same threat as our corrupt government. I am FAR more worried about the DHS than i am a lone idiot. Because i have guns at home. One lone idiot i can handle. But the DHS i cannot defend myself against. So yeah, im worried about the bigger threat. Both to my life and to my liberty.

    • Signs of the End

      The question I would ask i why are they announcing it? Most of their agenda is carried out in secret, why is this info always leaked out that they are buying ammo? I would suspect it is done on purpose to incite people so that when the fireworks do begin they will be explosive (pun intended!)

      just more sales contracts for the elite

      but well noted SIGNS OF THE END

      Actually, this ammo is for the ‘clean up’ of civilians who survive Nibiru/Wormwood’s passage.
      But they will fail.

      I can’t believe what I just heard: hillary clinton diverts millions in tax payer ammo bound for Al-cia-da in Syria? That would have to be proven because it would be Blatant in our face Treason.

      OK this is getting really f’n scarey. Training purposes my arse! Buncha lying sacks o crap planning to turn on their own taxpayers! Can’t say its the Americans tho, since our own president isn’t even American. We’ve been had. Betrayed, deceived & blatantly lied to. 3 of my biggest peeves. By far. I’m sickened with this bs! Our own government is terrorizing us & then wants to ban guns?! Do the believe we’re that stupid? I feel defenseless in my own country, by my own country! Yep, it’s gonna hit the fan real soon. I have a way better weapon than all of them put together tho! The Almighty God! Time for Christians to join together. Call me whatever u want & u don’t have to agree with me. In the end tho, Victory is already won by Jesus Christ. Dang, I’m really worked up!
