One possible reason behind why DHS is now trying to erase any record of how much ammunition they are purchasing is newly proposed legislation in California that would red flag anyone who purchases more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition in a five (5) day period. Perhaps Homeland Security’s redaction is an effort to stay off the red list (of which so many of our readers are certainly now members of).
All kidding aside, there must be something to this.
For what reason would a public agency redact a public purchase order without the approval of Congress? Perhaps there is already a national security issue in place that we have not yet been made aware of. As DHS notes in their order, there is an “unusual and compelling urgency” to purchasing this ammunition.
Apparently the one billion rounds already purchased in the last twelve months isn’t enough and Homeland Security is planning on running out. Either they’ve been doing some serious target shooting across the country to burn through that much ammo, or they plan on using it soon and expect that a billion just isn’t going to cut it. What could possibly be so urgent that they are running low given how much they have already stockpiled?
