Scary: Social Security Administration Makes Huge Ammo Buy


The Social Security Administration has joined other government agencies in buying huge quantities of ammunition. The government has really given no reasonable explanation for the large purchases. Just what in the heck goes on here?

SSA posted a “Request for Quote for Ammunition” on the website on Aug. 7. The request listed the commodity that SSA desired as “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.” The quantity listed was “174 TH.”

The SSA’s Office of the Inspector General’s said it posted a new blog on the agency’s website, “Beyond the Numbers,” “as we strive to be a transparent and accountable government organization for all of our stakeholders.

“With those goals in mind, we thought it would be appropriate to address recent media reports regarding the organization’s purchase of ammunition for our special agents’ duty weapons,” the blog post states.

The social security card administration of Kansas blog states that, the SSA has 295 special agents who work in 66 offices across the United States.

“These investigators have full law enforcement authority, including executing search warrants and making arrests,” the blog post states. “Our investigators are similar to your State or local police officers — CNS

One can question whether the SSA even needs armed agents but the fact is they have 295. So let’s do the math . . . 174,000 rounds for 295 agents is 590 rounds per agent. That is CRAZY. It stands to reason the average SSA agent has never pulled his weapon on the job, much less fired it. So what is the government planning? Or is this just incompetence?

You may remember the candidate Obama saying in 2008 that he wanted a civilian security force just as well armed as the military. The malignant mainstream media didn’t see fit to pursue that very bizarre statement and now, a few years later, the Department of Education is armed with shotguns and virtually every agency is making these huge ammo purchases. Are we are being nudged into compliance, as with the tactics of the TSA?

Hey, Mark Knoller, Chuck Todd, Jake Tapper and friends . . . do your job. Ask Carney a question about this. He will not answer, but at least the issue will be on the record.

This is a very scary administration. . . another reason to kick them to the curb in November.

Perhaps these large ammunition purchases are being done to artificially drive up costs. I’d like to see some historical numbers on fedgov agency ammo buys. Obviously, the unexplored question is if the SSA investigators are like our local LEOs, then why can’t the law enforcement function be performed by those same local LEOs? Why does the Dept of Ed or the SSA need so many armed investigators? Investigate your little heart out, but when it comes time for the big bust, call in the locals, right? Just asking; in this time of austerity, when we all need to do more… Read more »

TG, I’ll have to admit I own in excess of these numbers for each caliber weapon I own. I think 590 isn’t too much of a stretch if they are expected to hit the range on a regular basis. This is a red herring as it were. If you recall the first big buy was DHS ordering 450,000,000 rounds of .40 hollow points. Followed by another 750,000,000 rounds of a mix including .357 hollow points. I think there is possibly an effort to downplay the significance of the DHS buy by hiding it behind a comparatively paltry 590 rounds per… Read more »
