Not to worry guys, they'll use those bullets find that biatch Katrina and bring her to justice for what she did to New Orleans.

This is why they need all that ammo, to hunt the El Nino and save the planet.

Looks like NOAA is going to deal with the denier problem the old fashioned way.

BostonEMT: untaken_name: Yes, but do they need enough hollowpoints (which are action rounds, not target rounds) to shoot every American three times? Really?

I agree that they need to clarify what the rounds will be used for - but I'm not too scared just yet. You act as if they're going to line up all the willing americans and off'em. If you're implying that thats a LOT of ammo - which in the civilian sense, it is - but in a "military sense", it isn't.

If you're going to go down "that path" and fear that DHS is going to over-run the civilian population, i encourage you to look at the ratios of rounds per kill in the last few wars. In Vietnam, it was 200,000 rounds of ammo per enemy combatant killed. so 1.6 billion rounds pencils out to 8,000 deaths (in a military combat situation). and thats assuming no rounds are used for practice or qualifying....

/maybe they need to start taking some notes on chicago/L.A./NYC gang bangers.


Yeah, I can see that.

Those weathermen need protection from all of the people who were promised sunshine last weekend and then got rain all over their picnics and beach parties.

I think the real question here is, "Who knew that the NOAA had a armed tean to handle the dangers of fisheries and where is their reality TV show?"

BravadoGT: propasaurus: So, back during all the furor in the aftermath of the movie theater shooting, gun rights supporters were telling us that one guy buying 6,000 rounds of ammo is not something that should raise a red flag; it's perfectly reasonable for one person to have that much ammo.
Now, a government agency buying 46,000 rounds of ammo is cause for concern and indicative of some deep dark government conspiracy.
But if 6k rounds is an appropriate amount for one person, maybe the NOAA is just buying ammo for 8 guys. No big deal.

Why does the NOAA need any ammo?

Triumph: ourbigdumbmouth: There has been an awful lot of ammo orders recently. DHS, now this.

I just wonder how this compares to previous years.

Maybe they're just stockpiling like the tea party are.

On a completely unrelated note, I wonder how the Syrian rebels are getting all that ammo?


The Syrian ammo is being procured by a National Endowment for the Arts request.

Its the end of the federal fiscal year, so everyone (in the federal gub'mint) is spending the rest of their allocated money. Use it or lose it. They could also be using it for a hedge on inflation as ammo prices have been going up considerably in the last few years...

/I wonder what would happen if Joe-Schmo tried to order 46,000 round of FMJs.
//prolly get watch listed if not visited directly - might get your bible/koran/FSM (recipe) book(s) taken away
///if you see something, SAY something - as long as its not about the gub'mint or the president, you paranoid, right-wing racists.

So the hollow-points will be used to protect fish and not weather vanes. I'm so relieved!
