Well being that we have 311 million people in the U.S. that would be aprox. 1.44 rounds per citizen
If you remove the people working in the gov. and millitary, that would leave about 3 rounds per U.S. citizen. Two to the chest one to the head, so I've heard that is how it goes.
oops should have posted on political alerts or general topics sorry.

Actually, they have a contract to buy up to 450 million over the next several years; doesn't mean they will purchase that many. Basically they locked a price in until their order reaches 450 million for the next several years.

I really wish that people would vet the crap they receive in their inboxes or see on whackjob websites before posting it on OCDO. Besides, the theory that this is some nefarious scheme to limit Americans' access to .40 caliber runs contrary to basic economic theory. If there is a greater demand for something, the price will go up, but the supply will also increase over time, as manufacturers increase their capacity (they make no money when they cannot fill orders from retailers).

Total ignorance: an Obama supporter's stock in trade
Don't you think the
is a little bit overthinking? You don't think the Gov't has bad guys to shoot at? Not to mention training. They don't buy ammunition as they need it, if they did they'd be running out constantly. Also, the DHS covers:Originally Posted by quarter horseman

and has 216,000 employees. That's 2083 rounds per employee. If an employee can carry 150 rounds of ammunition, They could get in 13 firefights where they used all 150 rounds. With the coast guard's fight against drugs, the border problems, and the secret service (I don't need to say much more) I don't think 450 million is much of a stretch.
