Our monstrously bloated and relentlessly intrusive federal government is currently controlled by leftist ideologues opposed to everything this country stands for. Their relationship with the American people is wary if not yet openly hostile. This is why even the National Weather Service is stocking up on ammunition, presumably to shoot us with. Remember the party hounds at the General Services Administration, who blew $820,000 of our money on an outrageously frivolous Las Vegas shindig? Here’s something a little more sobering from their official website:
The DOC NOAA National Weather Service – Western Acquisition Division ? Boulder requires the following items, Purchase Description Determined by Line Item, to the following:
LI 001, 16,000 rounds of ammunition for semiautomatic pistols to be factory-loaded .40 S&W caliber, 180-grain jacketed hollow point (JHP). …
LI 002, 24,000 rounds of ammunition for semiautomatic pistols to be factory-loaded .40 S&W caliber, 180-grain jacketed hollow point (JHP). …
LI 003, 6,000 rounds of frangible, 125-grain CFRHT .40 caliber.
Why does even the weatherman need piles of ammo if he works for the government? Possibly because every federal employee in the country might become deputized once Obamunism truly hits the fan in the form of total economic collapse or a disputed 2012 election.
Meanwhile, DHS has just purchased another 750 million rounds of ammo, in addition to the 450 million rounds they bought with our money earlier this year. I doubt they plan on using all these bullets to defend the open southern border.

According to bureaucrats, the National Weather Service ammo request was a “clerical error.” Admittedly the federal government is highly prone to errors.
