Peggy Dixon, spokeswoman for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center: “The training center and others like it run by the Homeland Security Department use as many as 15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises.”
The question remains unanswered. Why?? Homeland Security has enough ammo to last an Iraq War for 24 years. If the ammo was intended for training purpose, it would last for 100 years. Why do they need to stock pile now at the tax payers expense? It is obvious that the government wants to monopolize the market. The government wants to prevent ordinary people to own ammo. The government is afraid the people will turn on them. And you know, they are right!
