450 Million bullets and not bullet proof check point booths

The Department of Homeland Security recently stoked concern by contracting a company to provide them with 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets. Now the federal agency is also purchasing bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.

A press release from Shelters Direct brags about how they are providing the DHS with bullet resistant guard booths. Images of the booth from the company’s website suggest the guard shacks will be used to control checkpoints.

“This guard building features a standing seam hip roof, a thru-wall HVAC unit, (2) UL 752 BR Level 3 sliding doors, UL 752 Bullet Resistant Level 3 glass and a Low]E coating. Other noticeable highlights of this prefabricated steel building include metal halide security lighting, decorative window grille frames, and a “Stop & Go” light with controls,” states the press release.

The purpose behind the bullet proof booths is unknown, but the DHS has publicly announced that it plans to increase the number of unannounced checkpoints manned by TSA VIPR teams and other federal agents beyond the 9300 that were set up last year alone.

The DHS’ Federal Protective Service stoked controversy in January when it set up a checkpoint and posted agents armed with semiautomatic guns outside a Social Security office in Florida.

The armed agents checked identifications of locals as part of Operation Shield, an unannounced drill centered around “detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.”

Last week, defense contractor ATK announced that it had been awarded an “Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement for .40 caliber hollow point ammunition” by the DHS.

·

The contract stipulated that ATK would provide Homeland Security with 450 million rounds of bullets over a five year period. The federal agency also purchased 200 million rounds of bullets back in 2009 and has an open bid for up to 175 million rounds of .233 caliber ammo.

As the American Dream blog pointed out, “The Department of Homeland Security is only supposed to be shooting at people very rarely. It simply does not make sense that they would need so much ammunition.”

With guns and ammo flying off the shelves at record levels due to fears that a second term in office for Obama could lead to a fresh assault on second amendment rights, the DHS may be attempting to head off any potential ammo shortage.

The feds are also seeking to arm hundreds of newly hired security guards tasked with protecting government buildings.

Some fear that the DHS is preparing for the threat of civil disorder or a crisis in Mexico that will lead to a mass migration of people across the southern border.

In December, DHS chief Janet Napolitano directed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.

    I believe he knows he cannot take away guns because it's our constitutional right. Hillary and the U.N. have shown him a different way. Make the availability of bullets harder to get. He can try to slow orstop the manufacturing of bullets by regulating factories. The bullets he is buying is for stockpiling for future use.

    Yes, but he went to the UN. If he enforces the Small Arms Treaty it would make this country just like the enslaved governments of the period after WWII.

    The political class isn't stupid, both wings of the progressive DemoRat-ReTreadAgin Party have brought this upon the country, they know full well that their destructive regulations and currency policies have set this nation up for a huge economic fall and they are getting ready for the inevitable social unrest that will follow.

    The status-quo lefty righty talking heads and parrots of the fascist welfare/warfare/police state want everyone focused on the smoke and mirrors wizard, instead of the institutional bureaucrats and special interests pulling the strings behind the curtain, while they quietly swing the gate to the pen shut behind them.

    He said it in a speech that he was going to form a guard unit in the United States such as what I just read. Is there going to be a civil war in the very near future in this country? I highly think so. They are feeding that war machine so there will be civil unrest in this country. You can only push that racial tactic down the throats of the American people for so long until all hell breaks lose. If that happen's the civil war of the 1860's will seem like child's play. If you are a desperate man like Obama is he will do anything to keep control of his power and damn the country.
