How many rounds has the DHS bought per year in the past? What's the average amount they use in normal training per year?
I've never seen you mention that, likely because you don't have a clue...
Yet that doesn't stop you from making claims that the evil gubment is out to get people huh?
The truth is that you and most others getting riled up about this have no clue what normal DHS ammo usage is. You're strictly seeing what you think
is a large number, without any idea of what to compare it to.
Go to this page: http://www.fletc.gov/
And look in the very bottom right corner. That number is for the FLETC alone.
That's just what they alone use in training per year. That doesn't include all the other departments under DHS authority. Do you know how many departments fall under DHS jurisdiction? That might be something important to note as well, since you're criticizing them.
Here's what that looks like:
The FLETC uses 20 million rounds per year itself, and it's just one member under the DHS umbrella.
You're a loony ****ing kook.
