DHS is “wishing” for enough bullets to fight a two-decade-long hot war.

DHS purchesed almost 3,000 armored vehicles specially intented for urban warfare and 7,000 fully automatic rifles

After weeks of ignoring rising citizen concern about its vast weapons and ammunition purchases, and after days of stonewalling Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp’s questions about the 1.6 billion bullets on its shopping list, the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) has finally decided to provide an explanation for its shopping binge: There is no shopping binge, it says. We’re just witnessing ordinary bureaucratic stuff.
