UPDATE: Social Security Administration To Purchase 174 Thousand Rounds Of Hollow Point Bullets


Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.


A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W; jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.

A further 6,000 rounds of S&W; JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.


The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey.


The National Weather Service is is one of six scientific agencies that make up the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).


The solicitation requires a response by August 21.


The NWS is following its federal counterpart the DHS in securing large quantities of ammo. Back in March,Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage, prompting questions as to why the DHS needed such a large amount of powerful bullets merely for training purposes.


As the Business Insider notes, hollow point bullets have been “illegal in international warfare since 1899.”


The DHS is also planning to purchase a further 750 million rounds of different types of ammo in a separate solicitation that also expires on August 20, including 357 mag rounds that are able to penetrate walls.


The DHS recently put out an order for riot gear in preparation for the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration. The U.S. Army is also busy buying similar equipment.


The DHS also recently purchased a number of bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.


The federal government is clearly gearing up for the likelihood of civil unrest on a scale that could outstrip what we’ve already seen in countries across Europe.


While the establishment demonizes the second amendment in light of recent mass shootings and legislation is prepared to ban the sale of large quantities of ammunition online, the federal government is acquiring ammunition at levels necessary to fight a full scale domestic war.


UPDATE: The Washington Post now reports, via a statement from NOAA spokesman Scott Smullen, that the original solicitation contained a “clerical error” and that the “solicitation for ammunition and targets for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement mistakenly identified NOAA’s National Weather Service as the requesting office.” This still doesn’t explain why hollow point bullets, designed to cause maximum organ damage, are needed for shooting at paper targets. Was the delivery of the bullets to the NWS a cover for them being transferred somewhere else? It’s entirely possible given the sordid history of Fast and Furious, a federal government program under which guns were sent directly to Mexican drug cartels.

    Unless they are prepping for a TEA party attack like the military is. I don't know these facilities but they may have armed federal security and these amounts sound like yearly use firearm qualification expenditures. You use the same ammo as you would on duty.

    I don't think I would agree one to two BILLION rounds of ammo for these organizations equates to "yearly use". What the heck are they shooting at? At two million civilian government employees (90% of which are NOT armed) that equates to 5,000 rounds of ammo per person. If you take out the 90% - that's 20 MILLION rounds PER PERSON! IMHO - I don't think so.

    Maybe they are planning "Fast & Furious 2" - arm Mexico - invite them to invade the USA without our government interference. That way we would have no problem with immigration or benefits being paid to "illegal immigrants". Ya' think? LOL

    Hollowpoints break up on hitting something solid which ball ammunition doesn't. So they don't go thru houses which ball does or ricochet

    Now see I did not know that. I only knew the difference in the damage done to a person, which is far greater with teh hollow point. Dont get me wrong, my 38 is loaded with hollow point for that reason, but I feel better about the lower chances of collateral damage now!! Thanks!!
