Why would the National Weather Service purchase a large order of ammo...immediately after U.S. Dept. Homeland Security makes their purchase?


National Weather Service Follows DHS In Huge Ammo Purchase - Hollow point bullets designed to cause maximum organ damage

By: Paul Joseph Watson - Infowars.com (Alex Jones)

Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.

A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.

A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

The National Weather Service is is one of six scientific agencies that make up the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The solicitation requires a response by August 21.

The NWS is following its federal counterpart the DHS in securing large quantities of ammo. Back in March,Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage, prompting questions as to why the DHS needed such a large amount of powerful bullets merely for training purposes.

As the Business Insider notes, hollow point bullets have been “illegal in international warfare since 1899.”

The DHS is also planning to purchase a further 750 million rounds of different types of ammo in a separate solicitation that also expires on August 20, including 357 mag rounds that are able to penetrate walls.

The DHS recently put out an order for riot gear in preparation for the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration. The U.S. Army is also busy buying similar equipment.

The DHS also recently purchased a number of bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.

The federal government is clearly gearing up for the likelihood of civil unrest on a scale that could outstrip what we’ve already seen in countries across Europe.

While the establishment demonizes the second amendment in light of recent mass shootings and legislation is prepared to ban the sale of large quantities of ammunition online, the federal government is acquiring ammunition at levels necessary to fight a full scale domestic war.

UPDATE: The Washington Post now reports, via a statement from NOAA spokesman Scott Smullen, that the original solicitation contained a “clerical error” and that the “solicitation for ammunition and targets for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement mistakenly identified NOAA’s National Weather Service as the requesting office.” This still doesn’t explain why hollow point bullets, designed to cause maximum organ damage, are needed for shooting at paper targets. Was the delivery of the bullets to the NWS a cover for them being transferred somewhere else? It’s entirely possible given the sordid history of Fast and Furious, a federal government program under which guns were sent directly to Mexican drug cartels.

24,000 rounds of ammunition! Egads! Why, that's enough to actually shoot a little bit. I shoot some and the matches that I attend will use 2,500 rounds of 9mm. I shoot 9mm because it's more affordable than any other handgun ammo. You .22 shooters shut up. No one shoots .22 at matches except bullseye. I use that many just at matches in 1 year. A real shooter will use 10,000 rounds per year at minimum. The problem with people that don't shoot is they seem to believe that maybe 500 bullets is a lot.

Is the Madman Obama planning on using all Federal Agencies and our own Military against us? Why aren't our Leaders telling us just what, specifically is going on? Why is this Administration under Obama so secretive, and why aren't other politicians asking any questions, or do they ALL know something that they arent telling us?
Shaved, can you get us some answers? This is very disturbing.

Most likely it was an order from the white house to eliminate any of non-believers in man made global warming.

Do you really think our military will turn on us? They couldn't and wouldn't turn on the lefties in the 60's. Why would you think that they'd come after us now? As long as there is a 2nd Amendment, we are safe. Not all of them would fight us and it would bankrupt the government to try. There are more firearms owners than there are members of the military. You actually think that the patriots of the military would kill Americans?" Especially people that aren't trying to overthrow the government? The nitwits in Washington that would try to do this would immediately be arrested by the military. The military loves our country more than most of us, they've pledged their blood to defend it. I'd trust almost anyone in the military more than I'd trust a democrat.

I stand corrected, there are a few people shooting .22 at a match of some sort. I was referring to center fire handgun competition. Those police type matches require .32 cal or higher. Most shoot 9mm these days.

When Obama loses in November the natives are going to get pretty restless. They won't like their savage master being retired by the White majority in America. Doesn't matter he has been a useless fucking biased asshole for four years he is still a Brother and deserves another 4 years. My advice is to stock up yourselves because the shit will hit the fan. At least you can hold out and protect your home and family till things settle down. They always do.

Our military would not fire on U.S. citizens, but N.A.T.O. troops would.

" Protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC, so help me God "...anyone, in any uniform, who took this oath, must ask themselves, " would I fire on fellow Americans if given the order "?
In the words of Capt. John Parker at Lexington Square, " don't fire unless fired upon ".
Final thought, a people that fear it's government lives in tyranny, a government that fears it's people, those people enjoy liberty.

govt contracts tie up mfg's ability to produce other rounds for civilian use. isnt it just like the govt to bring a pistol round to a rifle fight

PHXresident said...

Actually, it wasn't the natl weather service that ordered that ammo, it was the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement that ordered it. They are law enforcement, it's not unusual for them to buy large amounts of ammo. Infowars isn't really a credible news service, methinks. They sensationalize everything and rarely fact check. No one should have to get their news of the world from a dweeb like Paul Watson or alex Jones LOL.

Get ready, the government of the democrats is. They feel a revolution is near and are preparing. Get some range training in and buy ammo for your household. Aim for the center mass and shoot with a volly of three..

I've done the numbers - 450 million amounts to about 3,333 rounds per gun-carrying DHS employee over 5 years. They'll probably use most of that up doing minimum qualifying.

I think there would be a percentage of Military that definately would go door to door and confiscate Civilians guns, in violation of our Constitution, AND they will shoot and kill any civilian resistors, especially at first, to instill fear on civilians and ensure cooperation, just like Adolph Hitler did.

If NATO TROOPS would fire on U.S. Citizens, then they are Enemies of our Country, so why are our ball less politicians allowing this, and WHY is the USA even in the UN? WHo needs the UN? Why arent American Citizens getting the truth from our Elected Officials?

There might be some problems when obama loses, but it wont be Nationwide Rioting. Just some scattered burning shooting looting mostly in big cities. Nothing new here.

Only a few more months till America turns away from Democommunist Chicago Thug Politics running the entire Country. Voters have awakened to their massive theft, corruption, and their buying votes with Taxpayer Dollars by enacting insane Entitlements .

You fucking, illiterate CUNT! First off, I've been walking towards fire for almost 20 years, I'm too old to run after that shit now. Second off, I didn't say I WAS A REAL SHOOTER, I said a real shooter, shoots that much. I don't shoot anywhere near that much. Third off, I agree, paper targets don't shoot back. Steel plates don't shoot back. But unless they start taking old fucking men to Afghanistan, I'll just have to settle for this practice, it's the best I can get. NRA instructor courses and until I started feeling my old age, I went to at least one training program each year. Why? Because I'm not that skilled and want to make sure I'm at least doing the best I can with what I have and what I am. You sir, are a snarky individual.
