    ".....Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.
    A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.
    A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.
    The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey.
    The National Weather Service is is one of six scientific agencies that make up the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    The solicitation requires a response by August 21.
    The NWS is following its federal counterpart the DHS in securing large quantities of ammo. Back in March,Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage, prompting questions as to why the DHS needed such a large amount of powerful bullets merely for training purposes.
    As the Business Insider notes, hollow point bullets have been “illegal in international warfare since 1899.”
    The DHS is also planning to purchase a further 750 million rounds of different types of ammo in a separate solicitation that also expires on August 20, including 357 mag rounds that are able to penetrate walls.
    The DHS recently put out an order for riot gear in preparation for the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration. The U.S. Army is also busy buying similar equipment.
    The DHS also recently purchased a number of bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.
    The federal government is clearly gearing up for the likelihood of civil unrest on a scale that could outstrip what we’ve already seen in countries across Europe.
    While the establishment demonizes the second amendment in light of recent mass shootings and legislation is prepared to ban the sale of large quantities of ammunition online, the federal government is acquiring ammunition at levels necessary to fight a full scale domestic war....."

    May be tin-foil hat stuff or could be Maobama arming his "civilian army" using our tax $$.

    You should read section 5120 of the "Obamacare" Act. It provides for the formation of a "ready reserve". You know the act no one could read until they passed it--as according to Nancy Pelosi.

    Don't all of these agencies have security guards at their facilities?

    Ilegal in international warfare, not domestic terrorism. Black Panther post got me to remembering when a lot of hollow point ammo was expended. But with all this being on the east coast it says something besides racial warfare. Everything named is a possible terrorist attack waiting to happen. Jimmie

    They may have a use of this ammo, but I would doubt at these quantities. Homeland Security is buying an extra 750 million rounds (announced earlier this week).

    Could all this ammo being purchased by so many federal agencies being planned to be smuggled to rebels in Syria? To try to hide and spread around the purchases? (If so, that just exploded in their faces like an exploding cigar--but so did gun running to Mexican drug lords) This would be illegal--but it doesn't seem to bother them that it is--IF that's the motivation.

    Or there's been so many private gun purchases, maybe they're trying to dry up ammo supplies? Or maybe they're planning on citizens riot after the banks collapse.

    Homeland Security wants us to call if "we see something suspicious". Maybe we should be calling them that our gov't is acting suspicious. See something, say something--is what they tout.

    The social security thing isn't. 2,000 rounds are going to Lexington, St. Louis 4,000 and Nashville 4,000.

    I'm not sure what is going on but the American Eagle .223 shells I used to pay $7.99 a box for at Wal Mart last month are now priced $10.99...They're telling me it's because of a shortage.

    Not sure whats up, but I went to 4 different places that sells ammo today and they all were sold out of any and all 223 caliber ammo. They all said that local police departments bought everything they had.
