Social Security Administration To Purchase 174 Thousand Rounds Of Hollow Point Bullets

First it was the Department of Homeland Security, then it was the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and now the Social Security Administration is set to purchase 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets that will be delivered to 41 locations across the country.

A solicitation posted by the SSA on the FedBizOpps website asks for contractors to supply 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.”

An online ammunition retailer describes the bullets as suitable “for peak performance rivaling and sometimes surpassing handloads in many guns,” noting that the ammo is “a great personal defense bullet.”

The synopsis to the solicitation adds that the ammunition is to be shipped to 41 locations within 60 days of purchase. A separate spreadsheet lists those locations, which include the Social Security headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland as well as major cities across the country including Los Angeles, Detroit, Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Denver, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Seattle.

Hollow point bullets are designed to expand as they enter the body, causing maximum damage by tearing apart internal organs.

They're prepping for "us" the awakened masses who have had it

Being now awake, I have no desire to put myself in front of those guns. I only seek to keep waking the minds of those still asleep.

we should.

News Brief: SS Administer announces bullet gifts to seniors.

[Senior Center crowd settles in for a news brief from their SS Administer.]

SS Administer: Good morning. Thank you for coming down to your senior center. Now before I pass out your bullets you have been waiting for, let me explain the situation. We at the Social Security Administration value you as our customers. We know that in order for you to help our feeble economy, you must keep shopping... In closing... These bullets are a token of our appreciation for your loyalty. Ado. [Pass out boxes of hollow bullets to seniors.]

Fare thee well! and if for ever,
Still for ever, fare thee well:
Even though unforgiving, never
'Gainst thee shall my heart rebel. ...

Fare thee well! thus disunited,
Torn from every nearer tie.
Seared in heart, and lone, and blighted,
More than this I scarce can die.

Expecting Riots and Runs Maybe?

Is this for employees to defend themselves against all those elderly people that storm the offices when the money stops coming ya suppose?


So let me get this straight...

In the Marines, we couldn't use hollow point or alter our rounds for use against "our enemies" without the threat of criminal prosecution, but the SSA/the govt can purchase hollow points to use against its own citizens with no repercussions??! Sickening...

Ps...if they're purchasing hollow points they will be shooting to kill. No mistake about it.

Several reasons why.

There are several reasons why the military don't use it.
The first reason is that hollow bullets often can't pierce through hard objects. Like car doors, some vests with equipment etc.

The second reason is that if it does not kill, the suffer from surviving could be greater than with an bullet that went just through (all weapon that hurts, but does not kill, are today forbidden in the military)

The third reason is that when an enemy take hostage, so can't you some times shoot through the hostage with an hollow bullet, while the standard 5.56 NATO till pierce right trough. This is why police use hollow bullets (will try not to hurt any others than the enemy), and why the military don't (were it is important to kill, despite outcome).

I going to start to worry when

They ship a few million rounds of hollow points to the post office. LOL

Now that's funny

Good call....a whole new perspective on "going postal"

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

So much for SS being broke

I guess it's their new retirement policy?

Don't mean a thing.

If you cant hit what you aim at.10 billion rounds still isn't enough.

Money talks and dogs bark

In all seriousness

I actually took the time to go look at this. It seems 100% legit. Has anybody emailed or contacted a their senator or rep to ask WHY?

Being from CT - that would mean I would have to ask Lieberman - not going to get me very far I assure you.

this is bewildering, but not surprising--


it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Bewildering will be done by seniors as the receive their bullets

Bullets in lieu of cash.

Consolation Prizes?


Sheer insanity

I posted an item about the 46k that the NWS purchased yesterday http://www.dailypaul.com/248979/national-weather-service-buy...

Any odds on what's next? I'm guessing the Dept of Education. We all saw "The Substitute"

Give me Tom Berenger

I'll take Tom Berenger from the Substitute on our team. He doesn't mess around.

Well that is goods news

Know we know were to go to get ammo when the shit hits the fan.
I would feel really bad stealing it from Cabelas - not so much from social security - LOL.

If many, many citizens are stockpiling guns and ammo,

because they anticipate civil disturbance (could be riots, revolution, civil war, economic collapse, guerrilla warfare)then don't you think the government people anticipate the same possibilities.

Interesting that they want to arm themselves, but disarms us.

It looks to me like we are building toward confrontation and the arming of federal agents tells me the feds know it too.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

What better way

than to resolve the Social Security crisis? Have the SS do a lottery and and bump off every third baby boomer Senior Citizen.(This is spoken in satire, not as an endorsement. I'm getting up in years myself.)

Read this article on US Polycracy. It will show you the mentality why each federal agency is creating their own private army

Someone needs to ask the govt WTF?

If I were to buy a large qty of bullets I'd be jailed by the DHS. or now possibly my local weatherman or some rent a cop from the SS dept.

Seriously, WE need to start buying lots of ammo too. Maybe a local bingo parlor, or a local chess club should put in an order for a $hitload of bullets. Standing by and watching as the criminals stock up on weapons to be used against us is just retarded!


I would definitely contribute several hundred dollars to some type of
"AMMO MONEY BOMB" get one going for every state? Maybe a few in the bigger states?

All I know is we NEED TO ORGANIZE while we have the internet to do it!!!!!!! If this turns out to be nothing, then we will be fine, but it sure looks like shit is going down.

Message me if anyone has ideas, let's get something rolling fast!


I don't think it's for the deer hunting season.
