I would love to see actual evidence that the Department of Homeland Security is burning through 3-4 times as much ammunition per person than an Army at war:
Chaffetz, who chairs one of the House oversight subcommittees holding the hearing Thursday, revealed that the department currently has more than 260 million rounds in stock. He said the department bought more than 103 million rounds in 2012 and used 116 million that same year — among roughly 70,000 agents.
Comparing that with the small-arms purchases procured by the U.S. Army, he said the DHS is churning through between 1,300 and 1,600 rounds per officer, while the U.S. Army goes through roughly 350 rounds per soldier.
He noted that is “roughly 1,000 rounds more per person.”
“Their officers use what seems to be an exorbitant amount of ammunition,” he said.
Either DHS is over-training and wasting taxpayer money on ammunition if they are shooting this much per agent, or they are lying about how much they are stockpiling, which would beg the question, why are they stockpiling so much ammunition.
The answer—that they are seeking to counterbalance the 70+ million firearms and tens of billions of rounds stockpiled by civilians preparing for societal collapse just since Obama came into office—makes the loudly trumpeting elephant in the room nearly impossible to ignore.
DHS is arming up to go to war on behalf of the government against the American people, they just don’t want to be forced to admit it.
