    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.

    I'm pretty sure AmeriCorps, the Peace Corps and the USA Freedom Corps do not fall under the Department of Homeland Security

    Not to mention the fact that Obama didn't invent any of those things moron.


    Oh, yeah, and your OP is not even justified.
    They aren't buying 450 million rounds, they've merely entered into a contract that allows them to buy UP TO that amount over the next 4 years.

    Obama might want to use his UN troops for the real ugly stuff in a civil war

    It is strange. As a former LE officer, I know hollow points are for duty-only, NOT practice or training. Hollow points are more expensive than FMJ, and the "hollow point" is meant for NOTHING except extra tearing of flesh. Thats why they aren't used to shoot paper targets, the cheaper FMJ's are used for that.

    So......450 Million DUTY ONLY rounds? They have 200,000 employees at DHS. Not all carry guns. Most dont I'd assume. Lets say 100,000 do. .40 caliber, 15 rounds per mag, x 3 mags, = 45 rounds per agent. That would outfit 10 Million agents with 45 duty rounds. Hmmm. DHS must be about to hire a LOT of agents haha!!! About 9.9 million more! Thats how they will solve the economic crisis!!!!

    Obama never said anything about the Peace Corp or AmeraCorp or any of those. They already existed.

    He said, literally, a National Civilian Defense Corp that is as "well funded" (money) and "well trained" as the military (meaning guns and fighting).

    Nope. They are just signing a contract for it. Nothing to see here folks, move along....... right through the TSA screenings please, and through the DHS checkpoint beyond that.
