Update: Feds Have 4 Bullets per Every American
UPDATE: Now the Social Security Administration has placed an order for 174,000 rounds of .357 caliber ammo - also hollow points.
Let's review, shall we?
DHS - 450 MILLION rounds of .40 caliber hollow point
DHS (second order) - 750 Million rounds of assorted calibers
National Weather Service (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) - 46,000 rounds of .40 caliber hollow point
SSA - 174,000 rounds of .357 caliber hollow points.
This is not a comprehensive list, but let's total it up anyway:
That's 1,200,220,000 bullets!
The population of the United States is 313,847,465, according to this site, which means that, counting only the ammo listed above, and completely ignoring ammo belonging to the Department of Defense, various federal agencies of the most anti-Second Amendment administration ever, have roughly 4 bullets per every single American.
I wonder how much they'd be buying if we weren't running a budget deficit?
