How is it weird to raise an eyebrow at a domestic police force having more ammo and gear than the USMC? If you can't see a paradox here THAT is weird.

The problem here is that the government, namely Homeland Security, placed an order for 1.6 BILLION = 1,600,000,000 rounds of ammunition. What for? According to DHS it's for target practice. Now when you go to Walmart, Dick's Sporting Goods, Sportsman's Warehouse, etc ammunition is difficult to find save for a few types. .223 ammunition, the kind used in an AR15 is nearly impossible to come by where I live. The DHS is buying up so much that there isn't enough for the law-abiding civilians.

For the USMC to be running short on resources tells me that Washington has their priorities elsewhere. That's why I suspect people are upset. Our military should have what they need to do their job. The department of Homeland Security, which (I believe) has no jurisdiction outside the United States, has no need for such a ridiculous quantity of ammunition since it will only be used against US citizens.

Shouldn't any group be "conserving assets" when they're being provided by tax dollars? I don't see the problem here.....
The problem is that DHS is hoarding ammo, to be used on the homeland, while our military are being told to conserve. That doesn't compute. DHS has bought, 1.6 Billion rounds, and they can't share? What are they saving all those hollow points for?
