Various departments? It was the DHS. There's a pdf link in that link I showed showing their order. Besides, just what do any of the various departments need 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point ammo and the rest of what they purchased for ? Is this a common and routine thing?
And if that is for armed defense, then why do they get to practice self-defense but not the people?
