From the guys who brought you...

..."Romney is gonna put y'all back in chains"...

First it was the Department of Homeland Security, then it was the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and now the Social Security Administration is set to purchase 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets that will be delivered to 41 locations across the country.
Ah, wait a minute... that's a secret...
The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to black out sections of the document, including the number of bullets being purchased, is likely to be related to a massive controversy which has snowballed over the last few weeks pertaining to concerns as to why the federal agency has purchased well over a billion rounds of bullets over the last 6 months alone.

The DHS’ decision back in March to purchase of 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage prompted questions as to why the federal agency required such powerful bullets and in such large quantities merely for training purposes.
Hang on a sec, Peace Moonbeam... don't guns only have one purpose?

You still feelin' all hopey-changey?

Pistol bullets are not "powerful" when compared to most rifle and carbine ammunitions. Having said that I still don't want to be on the business end of one.

The SSA purchase of 174,000 rounds for 41 locations t'aint much; 4,244 per office or less than 400 rounds per month. That's easily within training ammo for a handful of armed staff. Hollowpoint for training? One always trains with the same ammo as one carries. If you carry hollowpoint, train with hollowpoint.

What concerns me is a) the need for every government department or agency to have its own armed security force some of whom I assure you are poorly trained and supervised and b) why does every agency need a different small arms caliber? It's a sure sign of empire building within the agency/department.

lemme see... the social security administration & the national oceanic and atmospheric administration start stockpiling ammo and it's no big deal? you think the lunatic left wouldn't be losing their minds if this was being orchestrated by a bush or a romney whitehouse?

what's the obama administration up to? what is the threat here?
