    DHS has now ordered an additional 200 million rounds of .223 and .308 (sniper grade ammunition to supplement a number of earlier orders for .40 cal and .223 ammo. Total orders for ammunition for our Department of Homeland Security are now at 1.4 Billion (thats billion with a B) rounds. What the #$#$$ does an essentially civilian law enforcement group need with 1.4 billion rounds of ammo?

    When you can't hit a darn thing you have to spray a lot of rounds down range.

    Does anyone know who they are buying it from?

    I read this article on the Drudge Report, but no supplier was indicated.

    They might be shooting a two targets probably take that many rounds for them to hit them

    You guy's don't get it!!! How many of you have you stocked up on ammo and automatic rifles and pistols the last few years, to many squirrels in the bird feeder, don't think so and neither do the Homeland guy's.

    You better keep stocking up.............
