Feds Order Another 21.6 MILLION Rounds of Hollow Point Ammo

The outrageous and unexplainable purchase of now 1.6 BILLION bullets by the Feds can be summed up in the following sentence.
the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.
That from the news that feds have ordered yet another round of ammo, this time 21.6 million rounds of hollow point .40 and .9 ammo. The FedBid document has the order details. The document reads to suggest the ammo is heading to a training facility in New Mexico. Perhaps this is indeed the final destination for the ammo. But why would the feds train with more expensive hollow point ammo? And 21.6 million rounds?
Last weekend I fired about 250 rounds of .40 at a range here in Virginia. This over a period of two hours. If my math is correct (and it may not be thanks to public education), it would take me eight hours a day, firing 1,000 rounds a day, for approximately 59 years, to fire that much ammo. And that
Ugh between this and the mass coffin purchases awhile back I just want to f**king go off the grid into the mountains and wait out whatever shit they are preparing for :-\

Maybe they are worried about North Korea?
North Korea is just pulling the same bullshit they did a few years ago when they were starving. They started saying all this shit about how they would bomb us until the president was like "look, here is some food, calm the f**k down and go away" because they were too prideful to just ask for it. Families are literally waiting for their family members to die so they can eat their bodies over there, it is disgusting and horrific.
I can't WAIT for all of the ladies to come in here and start screaming "CONSPIRACY THEORISTS!".
THIS is EXACTLY why people are freaking out about gun rights.
I have been waiting for a certain kind of ammo to be "in stock", at SEVERAL stores, for the last 13 months. Everytime they get any in, they sell out in, literally, 30 seconds.'
Mark my words, the government is preparing for a full scale civil war and it's because they KNOW that what they are doing will make the people of this country rise up. Well, the ones with any balls and brains will, anyway.
Quoting LEGENDARY JAS ♥:" Because that's a lot of frickin' ammo and I am dumbfounded as to why they purchased so much."
At least you are having a normal, sane reaction.
I am more concerned with the fact that they're ordering all this ammo while proposing a 1% cap on salary raises for soldiers.
I highly doubt that the government is preparing for a civil war. Though their reasons are very unlikely to be innocent, they're probably more likely to be stockpiling ammo to send it to countries we don't like to help them in wars we don't support.
