Lots of ammo. I wonder how much ammo they use in a year?
DHS To Purchase Another 750 Million Rounds Of Ammo
I wonder what would happen if American ammo manufacturers, all American ammo manufacturers, refused to bid on these requests? What would the fedgov do then? Look for foreign suppliers? Take over the American manufacturers? Have the courts order the manufacturers to give a quote?
The manufacturers won't refuse, of course. We're talking about money here. Big money. And those manufacturers want their chance to get some of that money.
They want that money even if there was a possibility that the ammo would be used against, dare I say it... Americans? Of course, we have no idea why the DHS would want that much ammo. If they really want it at all.
Do you see the irony in the fact that our tax dollars are paying for the ammo they will buy?
And we all know that there is no way that our government would turn their guns on us. Ever.
