DHS Approves Two $4.5 Million No Bid Contracts For More Weapons and Ammo
According to one estimate, since last year the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. DHS also reportedly purchased 2,700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAPs) to go with their bullet stockpile.
ATK is one company that won a contract with the Department of Homeland Security to provide 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition in 2012.
The Department of Homeland Security approved two more $4.5 million contracts for more weapons and ammo recently.
The Obama File reported:
Dave Gibson is reporting that on Monday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted details of a no bid contract with weapons manufacturer Sig Sauer, worth $4.5 million over the next five years.
The contract is identical to the one DHS announced last week with Heckler & Koch.
Both contracts are for $900,000 worth of “replacement parts” a year, for weapons used by DHS agents.
While it is hard to imagine how or why a domestic agency could anticipate firing their weapons enough over the next five years to need $1.8 million annually in replacement parts, the DHS documents clearly state their need to “stock sufficient quantities of parts needed to fulfill the quantities of parts anticipated to be ordered.”
In April 2012, DHS purchased $143,000 worth of submachine guns from Heckler & Koch.
Exactly what plans does the department of Homeland Security have for all this military stuff? Just look at their recent purchases:
And why all the armed military exercises, using choppers firing automatic weapons (using blank ammunition) and tanks, being conducted in Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Miami, and Houston?
And why did the U. S. Army publish a January directive to use drone fleets in the U.S. for “training missions and domestic operations.”
Why did the National Security Agancy refuse to declassify Obama’s executive order that would allow the government to deploy the military within the United States for the sake of cybersecurity.
