It looks like DHS isn’t the only ammunition hog in the United States

There are two stories that have come to light recently, the first is the awarding of a contract to a munitions manufacturer for 450,000,000 hollow point rounds for the .40 caliber.

The second story which I wrote is how the Department of Homeland Security had already ordered 200,000,000 rounds of .40 caliber, but also ordered 15,000 gun cleaning kits for the .40 caliber weapons, and has put a request out for a virtual shooting gallery for the .40 caliber handguns.

650,000,000 round of ammunition is quite a bit of lead and brass. It will sure to drive the price of copper and brass way up. But Homeland Security is not alone in their requests.

The other departments -- the ones that handle mundane things like meat quality -- believe they need to be armed to the teeth as well. It’s enough to make a non-paranoid person, well, paranoid...

Indirect Attack on Second Amendment

Government and DHS can't take your guns, but they can take your ammo, simple. Most Americans can not site much of the bill of rights, but they all know the second amendment, the right to bear arms. The right to own firearms is deeply embedded in the American mind. Government is making it financially hard to realize the second amendment via radically increasing the cost of ammunition.
