National Weather Service orders 46K hollow-point bullets

by

Back in March, the Department of Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets – bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage. Not to be outdone, the National Weather Service has now ordered 46,000 rounds of the same type of bullet.

Business Insider notes that hollow point bullets have been “illegal in international warfare since 1899.”

According to Inforwars, the request asks for:

 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.

A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

The National Weather Service is is one of six scientific agencies that make up the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The solicitation requires a response by August 21.

Additionally, DHS updated their order to include 357 mag rounds that are able to penetrate walls. Combine that with beefed up requests for riot gear and bullet-proof checkpoint booths and one starts to wonder what they know that we should know.

Requests for additional information from the bullet purchasing agent were ignored. If anyone else wants to try their luck, her name is Naomi Abaniel. Phone: 562.980.4053 Email: naomi.abaniel@noaa.gov

Update: According to Business Insider, the actual entity requesting the bullets is not the Weather Service but the Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement. I feel so relieved.

  1. The Spy Who Loves You Says:

    A couple of things: First, the .357 ammo in question is likely NOT the .357 ammo for .357 Magnum revolvers, an extremely large an powerful round. It is probably SIG .357 ammunition which is just one of many rounds fires from the kind of semiautomatic pistols commonly used by many federal law enforcement agencies, including the Secret Service, which is part of DHS.

    Second, I suspect that this is budget ‘wrangling’. DHS likely expended all of its allocated funds for ammunition, but wanted more. If I guess correctly, NWS had a line item inserted into the most recent budget for funds that could be used for ammo, but likely would not be used for other purposes, so DHS just had NWS order the ammo for use throughout the department. I saw things like this all the time when I was in the Federal Government.

    My guess is that they are just trying to catch up to the tea party 2nd amendment fanatics.

    “The Spy…” probably has it right. It’s a “Color of Money” thing and it is not uncommon to see some horse trading during the 4th Quarter of the Fiscal Year. 46 days, but who’s counting? However, it’s quite a stretch going from DHS to Commerce (NOAA’s home).

  6. jbtalcott Says:

    . . . or maybe the weather service is stockpiling arms to protect themselves from the radical climate change deniers.

  8. Richard Warnick Says:

    Actually, the National Weather Service did not order any ammunition.

    The solicitation, posted to fedbizopps.gov on Aug. 9, caught the attention of bloggers and reporters this week. NOAA spokesman Scott Smullen said the error was corrected online Tuesday.

    “The ammunition is standard issue for many law enforcement agencies and it will be used by 63 NOAA enforcement personnel in their firearms qualifications and training,” Smullen said in a statement. “NOAA officers and agents enforce the nation’s ocean and fishing laws to ensure a level playing field for fishermen and to protect marine species like whales, dolphins and turtles.”

    If it is just a budget thing, then why does the SSA respond they need the bullets for fraud investigations?

  11. james Says:

    since when is a person labeled a “fanatic” for agreeing with the 2nd amendment? What a typical brainwashed democrat. As far as the bullets request is concerned I have no why they need them but it is pretty interesting/comical.

  12. james Says:

    Since when it is considered to be a “fanatic” to agree with the 2nd amendment? If you don’t agree with American law then leave. If you are not in America then our laws are none of your business.
