    Peter did his toogle research. He saw the other ariticles that list 1.6 billion rounds. He chose to ignore them. He's just in a mood today. I'm guessing a spat with his husband, or maybe just a heavy flow day.

    Homeland Security has contracted to buy up to 450 million .40-caliber bullets -- and that total exceeds the nation’s population. Significantly, though, the purchase contract covers five years; there’s no indication the agency is piling up the bullets in a hurry.

    To wrap things up, instead of the ridiculous claim of “21.6 MILLION rounds of ammunition” being ordered by the Department of Homeland Security, the actual total is 240 THOUSAND rounds (100k + 100k + 40k).

    so you say you post a source and it's wrong by a factor of 10?

    SO they created a contract for 450M and you saw requests for $240k, your link says the contract is UP TO 450M in .40 (only, what about other calibers?) and you say it's wrong? That's rich. Here is a larger cut/paste. Their "RULING" is that it's up 450M and they say the false part is the intent. You won't believe even the "facts" you put up.. amazing ability, you should work on grants and contracts.

    Our ruling

    Homeland Security has contracted to buy up to 450 million .40-caliber bullets -- and that total exceeds the nation’s population. Significantly, though, the purchase contract covers five years; there’s no indication the agency is piling up the bullets in a hurry.

    More significantly, we found nothing to support the email’s ominous suggestions. Rather, the large size of the contract is explained as a way for the government to buy in bulk to save money on ammunition used routinely for training officers in a wide variety of agencies.

    We rate the email Mostly False.




    Should I post a PDF of the Navy buying a bolt and we'll say they only bought one bolt? That's exactly what you are trying.
