The following chart demonstrates the frequency, quantity, and variety of ammunition the Department of Homeland Security has awarded to a variety of providers since Mr. Obama took office in January 2009. Solicitation and award notifications are available upon request.
This information was taken from FBO.GOV, the website where businesses can find government contracts to keep their workers employed, fed, and in their own homes. Prepper Podcast Radio Network, and its subsidiaries applaud every employer still able to keep their doors open, and are appreciative of the hard work that the companies listed below do to keep the economic engine of America running.
As you can see by the chart, no weapon or caliber is forgotten. From the mundane to the exotic ammunition, the Department of Homeland Security has purchased them by the thousands.
Those entries that are highlighted RED are strictly training rounds and would not be used in an offensive manner. The DHS only employs approximately 20,000 people worldwide, therefore the training ammunition is very appropriate for the number of employees. What is not appropriate is the large number of ammunition, offensive in nature, that is purchased annually.
Pay attention to the GREEN highlighted object. This is for 1000 magazines for the .40 caliber sub-machine gun.

Department of Homeland Security solicited sources for the .40 caliber sub-machine guns in September of 2008:
The government intends to acquire on a sole source basis a quantity of 85 submachine guns from Heckler and Koch Defense, INC model Heckler and Koch UMP .40 caliber with Unique Identification Data (UID) and Radio Frequency identification (RFID). This acquisition is intended to supplement the governments existing substantial inventory of this weapon. Compatibility with existing stock is essential.
In April of this year, the DHS awarded Heckler and Koch another $143,500 for 100 more UMP machine guns, and another 300 magazines.
The weapon weighs 4.6 pounds and can empty its 30 rounds in only 3 seconds. Now we know why Janet Napolitano needs 650,000,000 rounds of .40 caliber S&W ammunition. Machine guns are offensive weapons; and in the hands of a tyrannical government will be used to subdue masses of people who wish to revoke their consent to be governed by a pompous, narcissistic, conceited, egotistic, and vain man with delusions of grandeur and one hell of a god-complex – Mr. Barack Hussein Obama Jr.
With ammunition like this, the only sticking point would be people of conscious simply doing the right thing and saying, “No.”
But with today’s Godless society and homes ripped apart by drugs and alcohol and reality TV, I’m not hopeful of that taking place.
