Homeland Security Needs More Hollow Points

In the last year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has an open order to purchase over 2 billion bullets.  To put that into context, during the peak of the Iraq war our soldiers used an average of 5.5 million bullets per month.    That implies that he DHS could carry on a war with Iraq for 30 years.

What is even more disturbing is that the DHS says they are going to purchase 360,000 more hollow point bullets for training.  What exactly do they need hollow point bullets for?  Training with hollow point bullets has no benefit over training with round nosed bullets.

former Marine Richard Mason, who told reporters with WHPTV News in Pennsylvania earlier this month, “We never trained with hollow points, we didn’t even see hollow points my entire four and a half years in the Marine Corps.

Retired United States Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow put it more directly:

“a bold threat of war by that agency (DHS), and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America.”

 

Take a look at the destructive power of the hollow point for yourself:

    This doesn’t appear to be true. DHS has requested bids for UP TO this number of bullets, but has not actually purchased nearly this many. In fact, DHS gave Tom Coburn a detailed breakdown of ammo purchases and use for the last three years (http://www.coburn.senate.gov/public//index.cfm?a=Files.Serve&File_id=9cde768f-bb3a-4fd9-8176-1745c21519c2).

    I realize there is a difference between blogging and reporting, but it took me about 5 minutes to assure myself this was not true.
