The Great DHS Ammunition Stockpile Myth

There are dozens of articles hyping government purchases of ammunition over the last nine months. After spending weeks researching this topic, this is a collection of commonly held myths that are based more on panic than fact.

Homeland Security’s Ammunition Purchases Should Not Worry You | Military Times GearScout

Talk of the Department of Homeland Security’s recent ammunition solicitations has gone from the fringes of the internet to the mainstream in websites like Forbes. I was disappointed by the Forbes article – rather than talk cold hard facts, it was rife with ill-informed speculation.

The dispute about the purchases boils down to this … they placed orders for ‘up to’ a certain amount, but are allegedly not required to purchase that amount. When people saw the orders, they assumed DHS was purchasing the number of rounds on that order.

Of course, stating that DHS won’t fully purchase those rounds when the contract still has years left to fulfill is asinine. We don’t know what they are going to do.

So this is boiling down to faith, and gut instinct to try to predict DHS actions.
