Sen. Tom Coburn has gotten some answers from DHS on past and future ammo purchases by department. I find it interesting that DHS, from 2010 through 2013, will have purchased over 465,000,000 rounds of ammunition.

But that is over four fiscal years and its less than a quarter of what the tin foil hat crowd says they are buying right now!

Would that be the same "tinfoil hat crowd" that said gun rights will fall away, and that the UN will pass its global gun ban, and that the world is round?

Pffft, don't listen to 'em.. Everything's fine, just fine...

We return you to your regularly scheduled indoctrination.... Err.... Programming... Carry on.

According to paragraph #3, the various agencies of DHS already have a little over 2 years worth of ammo (Total DHS 263,733,362) in the inventory; average annual purchase past 3 years roughly 119,000,000 rounds. Seems like a lot of ammo to keep in the inventory. Is that a typical inventory for such agencies?

Oakchas,
When did this preparation for "war on the population" that folks talk about start?
More specifically when did the government start buying up all the ammo for it?

1.2 billion plus being purchased, they show a "purchase & usage" per year of 100 million. If that's an order for 12 yrs, then it's on track. My understanding is it was for 4 yrs, which would be 300 % of what's needed, and 200 million rds too many per year and a definite over-purchase if that's true.

Well, let's see....

In 1492
Columbus sailed the ocean blue....

And BOOM! Here we are!

Seriously? You want me to connect all the dots for you? But, I'm starting to believe the "tinfoil hat crowd." I can't be trusted...

All I know for sure is what I learned a long time ago. "A fish stinks from the head." I learned it as regards the politics of my home town, Chicago.

I've heard some rumors that the current resident stinky head, was gonna go on a gun grabbing rampage, about a year ago now, if we re-elected him... And BOOM! here we are...

Coinkydink?

You decide.

How much info was redacted in the beginning of the "Fast and Furious" debacle? And this gives you confidence in the veracity of our government? Really?

For me? Not so much...

And we're supposed to believe Napolitano because we know she always tells the truth, just like Eric Holder.

Didn't Napolitano tell us that she has now secured the border?

Phew.

I'm sure glad that we got all of this cleared up.:rolleyes:

You sir are obviously an extremist! Please unload all of your guns, place them in a barrel and wait for the men in suits, or white jackets. The government is here to help!

Question is, have they actually used the 100 million rounds each year. Does the chart depict Projected usage or actual usage and can you believe the data as supplied....In the first three months of this year DHS placed orders for 400,000 rounds that included 40,000 rounds of .300WSM Ammo.
