Why Does The Department Of Homeland Security Need 450 MILLION Hollow Point Bullets? - YOLO (you only live once) Now, I'm all for the military and law enforcement. Huge supporter of both. I just dont know what to make of the Dept of Homeland Security buying 450 MILLION hollow point bullets. They got 175 MILLION assault rifle rounds also. Is this the "Civilian Defense Corp" that is as well funded and well trained as the military that Obama dreamed of? I know DHS has ICE, Customs and Border Patrol...but really, how many people a year does ICE, Customs and Border Patrol shoot? Not 450 MILLION, thats for sure. Before anyone Googles and quickly answers "It's for training moron".........hollow points aren't for training, they are for duty. Nearly every single law enforcement agency uses cheaper "FMJ" rounds for training/practice, and DHS is Law Enforcement. Hmmm. Just curious.
