DHS Ammo Purchases: Gun
Control by Another Name?

Breitbart´s Big Government, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/10/2013 8:29:45 PM

According to reports, the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled over 1.6 billion rounds of ammo for its various agencies, and one of the worst side effects of this appears to be a shortage of ammo for private gun owners. The question is--what if the shortage is intentional? Bear with me here. I am not a "conspiracy theorist" nor do I believe that DHS is stockpiling bullets in order to wage war on Americans, as some commentators have suggested. However, I do believe they know these massive ammo purchases are driving supply

Comments:
When I read articles like this I can´t help but think of the chilling article posted the other day from Canada Free Press. This isn´t the country I used to know. It´s getting to the point where sometimes I wonder if I would be better off not being so well informed in knowing about things like this. It´s certainly not good for your peace of mind.

Since about the third time I heard of these buys, it occurred to me that they were restricting the supply.

Gun forums noticed this weeks ago. I thought about the gun control possibility back then, but .40 and 9mm are handgun rounds. If non-DOD departments were buying .223 (the "evil assault weapon" ammo), then we should really worry. Although I suppose it could be a ploy to shift production away from .223. Or, they know the government is about to go after ammo makers in some way.

The answer(s) can be found in a book called:

"They Fired the First Shot"

Can´t recommend it enough.

Like anything big government does, the inventory will shrink over time and guarantee the ´misplaced´ ammo won´t go to the good guys.

My sons and I both noticed this several days ago. We are having a heck of a time getting ammo for our 9mm´s and .40 cals. Both calibers are what the gov is buying up, and they are the 2 most popular handgun calibers. IT IS gun control, you know it, I know it.

Probably trying to dry up the supply until they get all those strict laws passed- then it won´t matter. Who is going to buy a gun if they can´t get ammo? Also, the ammo won´t be there when the government makes it´s move after the collapse.

Let´s use logic. Confiscate millions of weapons or regulate and control ammo purchases? The answer is obvious. The feds can do the latter with a stroke of the pen. The upside (for them) are no 2nd Amendment entanglements.

The Senate should investigate this is well, but if there´s a more useless layabout won´t -even -write -a -budget pointless ridiculous legislative body on the planet I´d like to know where.

I think this would be pointless as a way to keep ammo out of our hands. The ammo guys are still going to make it and I don´t think the government could buy 5 billion rounds per year, after year...

Ammo is very hard to find in stores right now, but a little computer time and you will find it online (buklammo.com etc...) I´ve bought some 40SW in the last week from two of them, with shipping came to about $0.45 per round. That is about .10 more per round than a year ago. I now don´t have to worry about going to the range twice a month for the next year and putting a dent in my ´stock´.

I contacted my Congressman Ralph Hall and Senator John Cornyn (Texas) with the 1.6 BILLION round purchase...their answer´s so far is that the figures are "exaggerated"...so I asked if that is so then what are the right figures..."less than 300,000" is what I´m being told... now, has my Government lied to me before??? Now where do you suppose the bullets have gone to???

The DHS is not a friend or protector of American citizens. Quite the opposite. It has been greatly subverted from it´s original mission to guard the nation from Islamic attacks. Now it appears to be being honed into a paramilitary force. Prepared to be used against any group or anyone who rebels against the current administration´s agenda. It is still in it´s early stages of formation and can be stopped. Let´s pray that it is.

With the rash of .40 and 9mm orders by the government, the manufacturers may understandably be unwilling to invest in physical plant and new employees to open new production lines. Government purchases of this magnitude are an anomaly and not indicative of the market, thus not sustainable over time from a manufacturing perspecitve. Some manufacturers also appear to be producing less .380, .38 special, .45 auto, and .357 rounds at the same time the citizenry´s demand across the board for any caliber of ammo has skyrocketed. Government intervention has tightened the supply such that the majority of ammo available for purchase has gone up in price, often in orders of magnitude with the net effect of "taxing" those who can still find readily available supplies. OMB has rules regarding this type of government acquisition relative to its market impact. A heavy political hand is behind this procurement ploy that reeks of abuse of the public treasury for surreptitious policy making purposes.

I know this sounds crazy right now but keep an eye out for Obama dismissing troops that aren´t willing to fire on American citizens.The person who leaked this info is a well respected world humanitarian and not the left wing phony variety.

I don´t know wy the ammo makers are giving government orders a priority or at least rationing what they can produce so everybody gets a "fir shot" at renewing their supply.

FEMA is part of homeland security. They didn´t have the funds to respond to Sandy but they have plenty of money to buy ammo to use on their own citizens?
We have the military to protect us from foreign invaders so why does HS need millions of bullets?

Obama openly bragged about creating and funding a domestic army.He´s also said blacks and latinos are the future workforce in this country,put 2 and 2 together.

The last round of bid request doesn´t make any sense to me.

It´s filed under "Ammunition, over 30mm up to 75mm" and "Ammunition (except Small Arms) Manufacturing".

What ?

It´s asking for
Pistol Cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point(Jhp) p/n P40HSTS3G OR EQUAL. BRASS CASING 100,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVERY. QTY-100, UNIT-MX

9MM 115 GRAIN JACKETED HOLLOW POINT P/N 9BP-115 GRAIN JHP OR EQUAL BRASS CASING 100,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVERY. QTY-100, UNIT-MX

PISTOL CARTIDGE 9MM BALL 124 GRAIN P/N AE9AP OR EQUAL BRASS CASING 40,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVEY. QTY-40, UNIT-MX


As far as I can tell, they are looking for 240,000 rounds of pistol ammo - not 21 million.

Maybe someone who has a FedBid decoder ring can read the bid request for us.

Thanks for the link, #18. It´s a request for vendors to quote on a commercial (readily available, not needing any R&D) item using simplified procedures. It´s a 100% set-aside for small businesses, which means the expected price is between $3K and $100K (or maybe $250K). A small business typically has less than 500 employees and $5 million in revenue (meaning companies like Winchester and Remington probably aren´t elegible). The quantity is for 100,000 rounds of .40 JHP, 100,000 rounds of 9mm JHP, and 40,000 rounds of 9mm ball. All of this isn´t being purchased at once; the government intends to issue periodic purchase orders for smaller increments until the 100K or 40K base is exhausted. The "MX" units means 1000, so if the QTY is 100, that´s 100,000. So, 240K is the correct total. Somebody probably multiplied the QTY in column 22 by the schedule in column 20, but that´s wrong. Of course, there could be other RFQs out there.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network.

And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate
