So you want your check eh? Do Ya Feel Lucky Old Man, Well Do Ya???

First the DHS needed 450 million rounds of ammunition, then the NOAA requested 46,000 rounds, now we’ve discovered an online request at FBO.Gov calling for 174,000 rounds of ammunition for the Social Security Administration.

The request actually calls for 174K .357 hollow points that arguably have as much stopping power as any bullet out there, and hollow points do as much damage to soft tissue as possible on top of that.

R.K. Campbel at Gun Blast mentions his experience with .357 rounds:

I observed the effect of the .357 Magnum 125 grain JHP once over the top of my own sights. The effect was gruesome. A solid hit that produced a severe blood flow AND dramatic effect from the rear, including lung tissue thrown perhaps three feet.

The 125 grain and JHP (jacketed rounds) are exactly the ones requested by the SSA and their offices of Inspector General and Office of Investigation.

While the government heavily arms seemingly every branch, Americans are being told that guns are bad and we should give them up. Are they preparing for an army of geriatrics, perhaps a zombie apocalypse? Will they arm the DMV next? What is with this Administration?

    It’s because of the Medicare cuts. The Social Security Administration is illegally not paying out benefits to people who don’t sign up for Medicare. With the reduced services, this group of people is going to grow.

    So are we now allowed to wear body armor, while standing in line at the local SSA offices? Ya know, just in case one of their pistols misfires. BTW, how are bullets going to stop a car bomb? That’s what gets used, whenever someone is super pissed enough at a federal agency, to fight back. AKA Oklahoma City. Are SSA agents thinking of packing, “The Matrix” style? They forgot to order the cool shades, if so.

    Mr. Dvorak: Just who is it you say is saying we should give up our guns? Be sure you say it is someone who can actually make us give up our guns. Everybody who has the power seems to tell us we have a right to our guns. Even after all the mass murders elected leaders are telling us we have enough gun laws. Even insane people have guns. Are you just trying to stir up trouble and make people anti-Obama even though he has done nothing to make the practice of having a gun more sane. Shame on you.

    Don’t you just love your big government? They not only waste your taxdollars just them being there in large quantities to make your life as miserable as possible with new more restricting laws every day now, they also use lots of your taxdollars to buy very nasty bullits to shoot you with.

    IRS people with guns. TSA with guns. Social security administrators with guns. All the three letter agencies with guns. And god only knows what other departments already have them. Really? This is your government supposed to work for you? Common sense obviously left the country a long time ago already.

    This is AMERICA! Everybody needs ammo.
