Why are different branches of Government buying very large quantities of ammunition?
The Department of Homeland Security, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and now the Social Security Administration have purchased hundreds of thousands of rounds of ".357 Sig 125 grain bounded jacketed hollow point ammunition."
What are they up to? What are they preparing for?
Because we are coming to the end of the government's fiscal year. Every agency has to spend every dime of its allocated budget if it wants to retain its budget for next year. I do not know why NOAA is buying bullets other than the fact that they are technically classified as a "uniformed service". I have no idea why the Social Security Administration needs bullets.
There are lots of rumors flying around the internet that if Obama doesn't get re-elected, then many of the liberal groups who support him and his socialist programs plan violent protests. I don't know if there is any truth to this, but those are the rumors.
Probably for the same reason many U.S. citizens are doing the same thing -- looks like scary times coming (no matter how they come about) and being prepared is common sense. I know a bunch of people who have been buying ammunition for quite some time as it seems to be getting more and more scarce and many believe there's a government move afoot to prohibit the sale of ammunition in lieu of being able to prohibit citizens owning guns. That, of course, would be gun control if it ever existed. An unloaded gun is like having a large rock.
