The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase upwards of 62 million rounds of ammunition as Jade Helm fears continue to rise

By Alex Thomas

(INTELLIHUB) — A recent posting to FedBizOpps.gov details Homeland Security’s search for a company to provide 12.6 million rounds of .223 Remington ammo per year for up to five years. At the completion of the contract, DHS plans to have purchased over 62 million rounds.

The solicitation by DHS comes at a time of increased fears over a potential martial law scenario, with numerous Walmart shopping centers closing and Jade Helm 2015 on the horizon.

The purchase order claims that the bullets will go to U.S. Customs and Border Protection for training purposes, the same excuse given by DHS for their past ammo purchases which in the past three years total over 2 billion rounds. As noted by Paul Joseph Watson, that is enough, “ammo to kill around 30% of the world’s population.”

In February 2013, I reported that a purchase order by DHS showed that they planned to purchase another 21.6 million rounds after already purchasing over 1.5 billion.

The Department of Homeland Security has posted a solicitation for another 21.6 million rounds of ammunition, bringing the total amount of ammo recently purchased by the DHS to over 1.6 billion rounds.

That’s right, just as elements of the federal government, in conjunction with the corporate controlled media, move to limit or fully restrict private firearm ownership in America, homeland security is gearing up like never before.

The solicitation for the ammunition, supposedly to be used for training purposes, includes 100 quantities of 100,000 rounds of 9mm 115 grain jacketed hollow point bullets, 100 quantities of 100,000 rounds of pistol cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed hollow point bullets, and 40 quantities of 40,000 rounds of pistol cartridge 9mm ball bullets.

This order brings the total amount of ammunition purchased by homeland security and to be used within the United States to a staggering total that should send shivers down the spines of all free thinking Americans.

“To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full-scale war for almost 30 years,” noted Watson.

Reasons for the ammo buildup by Homeland Security include the possibility that they may be trying to corner the market, thus stopping the general population from purchasing their own ammunition.

“If they periodically do this in increments, they’re going to control how much ammo is available on the commercial market,” a weapons manufacturer told Michael Savage, adding that the contracts with bullet manufacturers stipulate that everything made goes to the government as the number one priority before it is allowed to enter the commercial market

We are clearly seeing a large-scale buildup that will allow certain parts of the government to take on the American people. This is happening at the same time as the lead up to Jade Helm 2015 intensifies.

“Gun control for the people and more weapons and ammunition for homeland security is an absolute recipe for a full-scale American police state.”
