Establishment Launches Straw Man Over Government Bullet Purchases

•, Kurt Nimmo
 The choreographed propaganda campaign follows an article by Paul Joseph Watson posted on August 15. Watson wrote his article after a solicitation was posted by the SSA on the FedBizOpps website asking contractors to supply 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.”

On Tuesday, the Associated Press, CNN and other corporate media outlets simultaneously posted articles making the argument that 174,000 hollow-point bullets purchased by the Social Security Administration will be used primarily for target practice.

Social Security investigators “use this ammunition during their mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions, to ensure agent and public safety,” a statement issued by the agency claims.

The target practice argument, however, is misleading. “Full house” hollow point ammunition is not generally used for target practice, less expensive “range quality” practice ammo is, although it is entirely conceivable that an unchecked spendthrift government agency would use expensive hollow-point ammunition for this purpose.
The AP and CNN assiduously avoided mention of far larger government ammunition purchases totaling nearly 1.5 billion rounds. In reaction to news stories about these massive purchases, a solicitation posted on the FedBizOpps website concerning ammunition purchases made by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) now contains numerous redacted sections.
