NOAA Requests Ammunition For The Weather Service

On 9 Aug 2012, the Department of Commerce, for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration by way of the National Weather Service, put out a solicitation for a small variety of ammunition.

The solicitation breaks down the requirements:
  • 16,000 rounds of ammunition for semiautomatic pistols to be factory-loaded .40 S&W caliber, 180-grain jacketed hollow point (JHP).
  • 6,000 rounds of frangible, 125-grain CFRHT .40 caliber.
  • 24,000 rounds of ammunition for semiautomatic pistols to be factory-loaded .40 S&W caliber, 180-grain jacketed hollow point (JHP).
In all, 40,000 rounds of ammunition, and only 500 Transtar II blue 24" x 40" targets are being ordered.

All the ammunition and targets are being spread out over the US to three locations, Ellsworth, ME; New Bedford, MA; Wall, NJ; and St. Petersburg, FL. Only the 24,000 rounds are being sent to Florida, no targets will be shipped there.

This all comes after the Department of Homeland Security requested a contract with manufactures for over 63,000,000 rounds rounds over the next 4 years.


And this raises other questions:
  • Could not the US Government simply re-allot the ammunition from DHS to DOC?
  • What is it about being a weather person that requires the training and use of a firearm?
  • What future event is coming that makes the National Weather Service believes it needs to train and arm its employees?
We will report more about this as developments come in.

Never know when DHS might need more boots on the ground. It won't be enough.

An ice age ensues and people are mad because NOAA was all about global warming?

Yea all those rounds are for Stan the weatherman, he is going to take pot shots at clouds for practice. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

Their criminal division investigates fisheries fraud amongst other things.

How about we do 8 minutes of research, and then focus on the REAL Stuff...

80 shots per target is nothing. I am a firearms instructor. One of my students shoots more than 100 rounds in the first hour of training.

Now why would the weather man need ammo?... Being a Federal Employee myself, the only thing I can think of is Federal employees being "Deputized"...

The Federal Government, being the largest employer in the Country... Deputizing all Federal Employees puts them into a new category for penalties if they don't follow orders... All Civilians on a Battlefield under the Department of Defense are subject to UCMJ... Failure to follow Orders...blah...blah...blah.... So, how many of these people would actually "Follow Orders" not knowing better?... Or at least make them hesitate about fighting back against their own Government?

Not a surprise, NOAA is one of the 7 official branches of the military, and has been for quite some time (since 1917). It's akin to the coast guard.

It's no secret, they have their own wikipedia article and everything.

Dale wonders:

Why is it acceptable for terrorists, gangsters, criminals, and crazy people to buy firearms and ammo without limit at gun shows and privately (accounting for 40% of gun sales) but when the government, whose duty it is to protect us, buys arms and ammo, it is a scandal?

I smell treason.

This is the reason why I train children in the use of Firearms and reloading from four years upward. They love it.

I can see why they would do this. Obama or who ever is in power at the time will probably pass carbon taxes using NOAA and other testimony to back up the CO2 lie. This will bring a lot of pain to a lot of people based on fraud. People will be gunning for liars.

What is this I hear about a bill passed that calls anyone who buys/stores more than a WEEK of groceries in their house a terrorist?? Also the bill says the govt or military can confiscate all the food and water from any of our homes if we store more than a week!! Can someone check this out, tell us details, who wrote this up, number of the bill it is under and section, and where it passed?
It completely contradicts the gov websites that tell everyone to save/store 6 months to a year of food and water for unspecified emergencies or survival!! Why would they have us buy all that food only to call us a terrorist and steal all our food away, using security as an excuse?
PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS AND EXPLAIN TO US.

Hey Dale ! Keep wondering! The terrorists, gangsters,criminals and crazy people are your fearless leaders with the biggest war machine ever created. and guess what ! They create all the nut balls you mentioned. Don't hold your breath waiting for all that protection your expecting when TSHTF It's FEMA living for people that think they will be protected if you can survive the onslaught of poisons released on us. Through our food and water and air.

40,000 rounds isn't really that much. I bet there are quite a few people that use that much in a year by themselves. More disturbing is the type of ammo, as they should be using cheaper ammo for target practice. I know you should practice with a few JHP sometimes, but not all the time especially on our taxpayer money. Government spends out of control as the economy rots. The over a billion rounds ordered by the DHS is also much more disturbing.

Those of you that cannot possibly fathom waking up... I feel terribly sorry for you. If you really think that our government is here to protect us, then good riddance. Our constitution is being flushed down the drain while you are being spoonfed.

The DHS bought huge quantities of killer hollow-point ammunition because of their genital fixation. Don't tell me the NOAA crowd has it in for snow flakes. Or maybe rain drops. Now THERE'S something to get upset over. A disobedient raindrop that refuses to retreat.

they are tired of all ufo sightings being blamed on weather balloons and they arent gonna take it any more.

40,000 rounds and 500 targets. That's 80 rounds per target. Not enough to complete annual training from the police department I came from.

Anonymous said...

Whether or not 40,000 rounds is enough or not, the question should be WHY do weathermen need to be armed in the first place? I hear the Dept. of Education has Swat Teams...WTH ???

re: 4th Anonymous down: so you think it's OK to shoot, or threaten to shoot, people for taking one too many fish? talk about insanity!

Had NOAA shown a need to defend field agents from feral animals, here in Florida that would include feral pigs, feral dogs, uncontrolled Pit Bulls, Black Bears & Alligators. The logical & simplest solution would be a 12 Gauge Shotgun issued as needed to those likely to need such weapons. Only the ignorant & foolish would choose any handgun including the most powerful to defend against Bears & Alligators.
I am of the opinion that issuing side arms to Federal Agents that have little or no need for them is simple psychological conditioning to get the civilian population used to constantly armed government personnel.

Without limit? Really? Where's the nearest gun show? Oh, and you forgot guerillas, insurrectionists, anarchists and cowboys without a driver's license.

I smell an inability to reason, or an aversion to common sense, or both.

The move is more likely to intimidate weather staff who may decide to organize as whistleblowers or form group opposition to chemtrails/HAARP weaponization against the public.

@Eric-Gunther for "This is the reason why I train children in the use of Firearms and reloading from four years upward. They love it." - August 13, 2012 7:57 PM YES! SURE! because nothing makes me feel safer than a four year old with a loaded weapon...
