The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest
Without ammo guns are nothing but paperweights.
But for a moment lets follow you reasoning here; The next step would be to either tighten the restrictions on the manufacturer of ammunition or prohibit it outright.

Ahh, that’s the exact thought that crossed my mind after i posted. I admitted to myself that I was unsure if any actual bill is before congress currently to do just what i have suggested.
I am taking a look now for more details.
So Neo does that mean to agree with my assessment?

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition.....
A solicitation posted yesterday on the Fed Bid website details how the bullets are required for the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico.
Would you train with hollow points?
Just a few weeks ago, the federal government initiated a contract for acquiring 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. "The special hollow point effectively passes through a variety of barriers and holds its jacket in the toughest conditions," says a press release from the award winner, ammunition manufacturer ATK. (www.marketwatch.com...). This ammo is for the Department of Homeland Security as well as ICE. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...
The really important answer is that no one buys hollow point bullets for target practice. They're too expensive. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...
The fact that the bid exists doesn't change the fact that it's merely a bid, no supplier has been found yet, they have purchased nothing, and until a provider takes the contract, they are not set to purchase anything.
Infowars takes the truth "this bid exists" then adds their spin "government just bought a bazillion rounds of patriot killers"

The DHS must spend a lot on ammo so i get the feeling that they know which way ammo prices are going and are trying to price fix, might be worth checking their methods for ordering benign stuff like A4 paper to see if it follows a similar pattern of long term price fixing
Currently theres a supply problem with ammo due to everyone brought crates of guns and thus they brought enough ammo to go with them and since it was a relatively sudden peak followed by the holiday season the fat in the system has been taken away as going 24x7 to meet demand requires the ammo companies suppliers to increase their production
