CHAIN EMAIL FORWARDED TO POLITIFACT TEXAS MARCH 24, 2012
Subject: FW: Does One Of These Bullets Have Your name On It?
Why Did The DHS Just Order 450 Million Rounds of .40 Caliber Ammunition?
The Department of Homeland security has just executed an order for enough rounds of 40 caliber ammunition to kill every man, woman and child in the United States.
A shocking new defense contract entered by the Department of Homeland Security to secure a massive amount of amount of ammunition, with the option for infinite supply and infinite delivery, raising the question of just what they are preparing for? Massive civil unrest? An invasion by a foreign power?
The order is to supply 450 Million Rounds of .40 Caliber Ammunition which is more than one bullet for every single person in the United States.
The contract also comes with the additional caveat that the order is forward looking which means it can be revised upward or downward depending on a variety of factors, some of which also happen to contribute to civil unrest — including governmental spending, budgetary policies and economic conditions.
