I suppose this is a political question, but I'm not 100% positive.
Why on earth is the National Weather Service (i.e., NOAA) asking for bullets?
LI 001, 16,000 rounds of ammunition for semiautomatic pistols to be factory-loaded .40 S&W caliber, 180-grain jacketed hollow point (JHP). No reloads may be used with these weapons. All service furnished ammunition for issued firearms will be U.S. factory production.
Is this Fast & Furious, Part II, the Next Day, the Sequel!?
Perhaps it was Doppler Radar that accidentally discovered the Russian attack submarine in the Gulf?!
Or maybe they plan to defend the RNC against a freak hurricane attack the ol' fashioned way... fill the sombi*ch full of lead!
Maybe I wear too many tin foil hats. But it's fun speculating all the same.
