Even paranoids have enemies . . .

ONE AND A HALF BILLION ROUNDS OF AMMO — and more — have been acquired by various domestic US Government agencies.

That's enough ammo to shoot every American 5 times. Really. According to The Daily Caller's article by Major General Jerry Curry, USA (Ret.), "Who Does The Government Intend To Shoot?", US government agencies of all kinds are in on it:

The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S.

If this were only a one time order of ammunition, it could easily be dismissed. But there is a pattern here. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has ordered 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition.

In the war in Iraq, our military forces expended approximately 70 million rounds per year. In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about?

NOAA? Go figure. Scary stuff, indeed. And it causes one to ponder why. According to George Washington, at ZEROHEDGE, there are covert players at work: a secret government.

This may sound like a conspiracy theory … But remember that Senator Daniel Inouye said in 1987:
There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.

For the past decade, we’ve seen the rise of a secret, unaccountable U.S. military force … Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) is an unwieldy private army at the command of the President, and him only. And they conduct military and spy missions all over the world, never receiving formal congressional approval ….

More about JSOC later.
H/T — Helmut, thank-you, sir.

I came across this as well and concluded its just another government screw up
Just like .40 cal ammo is a spec made by the FBI in a scewup.

Never ascribe to malice what can be achieved by simple stupidity. I sure hope you are right.

More stupidity, or paranoia
An unexpected consequence of sending so many national guard, many of whom are cops to Iraq?
