tyler, tx — This is a topic I really wanted to stay away from.
Despite what some may think, I do not see a government conspiracy around every corner.
I don't like the way the federal government is handling things right now, but it's a fundamental disagreement on where this government is taking us.
But, this story won't die. I think it's time to meet it head-on.
The United States government has ordered millions of rounds of ammunition. Just not any ammo--- hollow point bullets.
And they are not going to the United States Army.
They are being sent to government agencies like the Social Security Administration and the National Weather Service.
I didn't know the Social Security Administration had its own officers.
And I did find out though research, the bullets sent to the weather service are going to officers which enforce hunting and fishing laws and they are under the NOAA umbrella.
But why does my country need so much ammo.
Depends on the math you trust that this is enough for 4 to 5 bullets for every American.
Some say they need this ammo for practice. You don't practice with hollow points. They are expensive.
You practice with cheaper ammunition.
Go down to Lock and Load in Tyler and they'll tell you that.
This from a retired Army general who has weighed in on this:
"Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battlefield in time of war. Hollow point bullets don't just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body's organs. Death often follows."
The feds have said they are ordering.
They still won't tell us why.
That is troubling.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
