Feds’ explanation of hollow point bullets raises more questions

News reports indicating that multiple agencies of the federal government have ordered and are stockpiling multimillions of rounds of ammunition have pressured the Feds to offer an explanation. But the official explanation has only raised more questions.

On Friday the government stated that the hollow point bullets it has procured are “standard issue” and that they are used to train security agents used by each of the various federal agencies.

However, according to retired Maj. Gen. Jerry Curry, a decorated Army war veteran, the Feds’ explanation about the bullets fails to pass the smell test.

When this reporter first heard the government’s explanation for the hollow point bullets, the warning bells immediately rang indicating a cover up. As every gun owner knows if they are serious about developing and maintaining their shooting skills, the type of bullets used for practice at the firing range are normally different from the ammunition one would use when getting the firearm set to be used in the event of a home invasion or other situations in which one’s life is in mortal danger.

Firing range bullets are much less expensive and are not designed for the day to day use of the gun for maximum self protection. One uses the more expensive variety, such as hollow point bullets, for real-life danger.

Thus, immediately this reporter knew that when the government claimed that its agencies had purchased multimillions of rounds of hollow point bullets for “practice and training” at the firing range, something was amiss. Most citizens are likely unaware that such ammo is not used for practice and will accept the government’s explanation at face value. This is in all likelihood what the Feds are counting on.

And when Maj. Gen. Curry confirmed these suspicions in his article for The Daily Caller, it became clear that the Obama Administration has not been honest with the public concerning the current mass stockpiling of ammunition.

Curry stated,

Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows.

In addition, Curry noted that during the Iraq War the U.S. military used 70 million rounds of ammunition per year. Compare that with the 750 million rounds of hollow point bullets that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered in March. And then it further ordered another 750 million rounds of various types of ammunition, some of which can penetrate walls. Curry declared,

This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public.

I fear that Congress won’t take these ammunition purchases seriously until they are all led from Capitol Hill in handcuffs. Why buy all this ammunition unless you plan to use it. Unknown to Congress, Does DHS plan to declare war on some country? Shouldn’t Congress hold hearings on why the Administration is stockpiling this ammunition all across the nation? How will it be used; what are the Administration’s plans?

The other factor that is raising significant concerns about the ammo purchases is that the U.S. military and various law enforcement agencies at both the federal and local levels have enough fire power to adequately respond to any emergency or threat. But DHS now has enough ammo on its own to kill every single American citizen plus potential invaders such as Syrians, Iranians, or Mexicans.

Why? And for what purpose?

As a career Army officer, Maj. Gen. Curry believes that the stockpiling of this ammo is enough to warrant a congressional investigation, including an order from Congress that the purchases of hollow point bullets be stopped immediately.

    Ball bullets do not perform the same as hollow point bullets. You sight in and target practice with whatever you plan on using so you know how it performs in the firearm you’re using and can adjust your sights accordingly. Ball ammo of the same weight as a hollow point would have a very different coefficient of drag, and would therefore not perform the same in respect to accuracy, velocity, energy deposit, etc., over any given equivalent range past point-blank range. Target shooting 101. Accuracy fine-tuning 102. Oh, and DUH.

    And yes, hollow points fragment and cause a lot of damage when they hit. Not disputing that or that they shouldn’t be used by the military or police. No idea why the govt. needs 750 million hollow point rounds. Just saying it would be a very bad idea to sight in a rifle and target shoot with it using anything other than what you plan to use in medium to long range shooting defense OR hunting situations.

    Just maybe someone high up is going to set up a raid against the Congress -or- another branch(es) of our Government and wipe them out! Hell: Maybe all of them!
    But get this…It will be blamed on the 'middle class' of Americans who are listed as "Terroist -or- Christans" so that a Dictatorship can be formed at the top!
    The American Public would be so grief stricken that there would be no resistance and or what little that would happen could easily be dealt with.Think about this; not only the regular people here on FaceBook but those in 'Think Tanks' around the country. So… though I can lend my mind.. that's all I got! Are you ready for the end of America..Our United States of America under the One True GOD.

    Sadly, the time for “elections” and “voting” is long gone! Those things belong in a Democracy, something America hasn’t been for a long time.
    I agree with an earlier comment; Get your stuff together, prepare for the worst and trust in God to make things right.
    One more thing; Have a few bazookas and flame-throwers at home, just to give God a little help…..

    Over billion rounds of hollow point bullets purchase by the dhs and gave it out to other federal agency, shows, dhs is stocking piling in other agency, it shows, all federal agency are co-op and train to kill american citizens, when the federal government signal, to arrest all the 99 %, if anyone resist the soldiers are train to shoot first and not answers any questions. The hollow point bullets are to cause maxium massive damage to the human body if the bullet do not kill instantly. The new world order is in motion.
    United States Republic of America Citizens, can correct and stop this corrupt, US SENATORS AND HOUSE LEGISLATOR, every State and it’s citizens knows their Federal Represenatives, each citizens of each State must vote out co-op corrupt elected members and replace them with new elected members with good moral character to correct the damage in Congress.
    I myself suggest Ron Paul to be the new President of the United States Republic of America.

    Americans need to stock up on ammo, food and water. This coming election is gonna get messy. The SOB in “Our House” needs to be eliminated at all costs. If he gets in for another 4 years, you can kiss America good-by.

    the more the independant blogs pass out info makes me think that the nra and the republicans in the senate and congress have bellied up. further with persons in the for front to try and spawn riots for mistreatment of certain people, would cause a “justified ” responce from obama to declare martial law and suspend congress and the senate to take special advantage of taking over total control. i wouldn’t be far off to say that obama already made deal for foreign mercenaries on the ready for trouble and to strike, just a side note on the word mercenaries, contains the name of the greek god of war aries.

    Our time here may be short, get your house in order, spiritually, first. God will soon come and thwart their plans. And this too shall pass. Fear not, God is able to preserve us in life or death if we believe and receive aright.

    Given This ADMINISTRATION’S Being CRAZY like a FOX, and incorporating Multiple aspects to all their Clever Ruse Schemes; some expect this May be a part of the ENG around to GUN CONTROL? Guns absent ammunition are reduced to being Clubs or Throwing devices, Cornering a Market controlled By Globalist’s Buying UP Munitions Manufacturing Facilities, with INTENTS to STOP Production, will MAKE Buying projectiles Cost$ SKYROCKET based on SCARCITY! The IMPOSTER Government Having a IN-Exhaustible supply does NOT encourage SOUND SLEEP? EYES WIDE OPEN: BOOO YAAAH to YAH’ All

    You practice with what you intend to use, so you get the proper feel, reaction and malfunctions of the ammo you’ll use in the fight. The military does exactly this, police do this, and trained civilians do this.

      Correct. And when did the government ever try to save on cost?

    • Nathaniel Smith September 5, 2012 at 8:38 pm - Reply

      Actually; you are DEAD wrong. You practice with ball ammunition, for two reasons; 1. the ball ammunition is cheaper, 2. the ball ammunition will still allow the user to experience what the “real-life” scenario would entail. There is no difference in weight, velocity, distance, or other variables. The only difference is that, as stated, hollow point ammunition actually mutilates the internal organs/tissues of the body causing massive damage. Hollow point ammunition should only be used when you are on duty as a means of defending yourself from an attacker. If you’re using it for practice, your just wasting money. I suggest you get the facts before you make statements about something you clearly know nothing about.

    >potential invaders such as Syrians, Iranians,
    How can they invade whiteout military navy which could win battle against USN in Atlantic ocean?

    When I was a child, I learned that “whenever a Jew opens its mouth, Satan farts!” In other words, the stench alone tells you its a lie.
    Well, since Pres. Bark Bark O’Kenya became Americas first African in the White House, ol’ Satan’s been doing a lot of farting!
    The lies and bullshit are stacked so high, they have become a veritable Mt. Everest in Jewish/Fascist America!
    I think we’re overdue for one big friggin’ REVOLUTION!

      So, Dan…”when you were a child you learned”? Does this mean your parents taught you this hate and anger toward Jews? I am sorry you were taught this hate which has stayed with you your entire life. May G-d forgive you.
