Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.
Francisco D’Anconia, Atlas Shrugged.
After DHS purchased 1.3 BILLION rounds of ammo this year (which includes 450 million rounds of jacketed hollow points,) the National Weather Service?!? or NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement has ordered 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow points.
For use against poachers, with possible oncoming food shortages? For possible civil unrest? That’s handgun ammunition, usually the last resort in deadly crowd control, AFTER rifle/ shotgun.
If it makes no sense, then the situation is being looked at the wrong way, or with missing information.
My warning: buy as much as possible for yourself. Obama said a month or so ago, in one of his “We’ll just have to go around Congress” speeches, that gun regulation was not off the to do list.
I think they’re either stocking up on ammo for a upcoming ban/regulation, or they’re planning for something very nasty to happen.
