A military veteran has questioned why the Department of Homeland Security is purchasing enormous amounts of ammunition, making it clear that he believes the bullets cannot possibly be for training purposes. Commenting on the DHS's procurement of roughly 2 billion hollow point bullets over the course of the last year, former Marine Richard Mason told reporters with WHPTV News in Pennsylvania that he has serious concerns. "We never trained with hollow points, we didn't even see hollow points my entire four and a half years in the Marine Corps," Mason said. When questioned recently, DHS official Peggy Dixon claimed the bullets were bought in bulk to save money and were for training purposes only. However, hollow point bullets, are very expensive in ammunition terms, and it is highly unusual to use such bullets for target practice. "Why would they need all those hollow points," former marine Mason asked "why would they need all those ball rounds just for training?"

    Homeland security is just a damn joke and spend tax payers money as if it is their own! There is no reason for them to buy so many bullets I believe it is for the REVOLT that they seemed to worry about, and rightly so! Citizens are sick and tired of being lied too by politicians that are bought and paid for by the rich thieves! Politicians and the RICH having done so many wrongs, that they have good reason to be worried about a revolt in this country! This countries government, politicians and the rich have been trying to do away with our constitutional rights and they know just how fed up the citizens of this country are. Just look at the invasion from our southern borders that is going on, and the government has done nothing to stop it. The rich want this because they can hire illegals for less than they can citizens just so the rich can pocket more money into their pockets. Our government has completely failed in doing their jobs, and politicians only seem to worry about how much the rich will give them for voting the way the rich want. Is it no wonder that so many bullets are being bought with tax payers money just so the citizens can't but them because of what they see coming!
