Who needs 30 bullets to kill a deer?  

We've all heard this question ad naseum lately.  So why does DHS need almost 1 Billion bullets, and hollow point at that?  We can safely guess that DHS isn't going to use them for deer hunting.  So just what are they hunting with this many sniper rounds and hollow-point .40 caliber bullets?  Some say they want these bullets for target practice but the more expensive hollow-point rounds are rarely used for target shooting.  Since the DHS's stated purposes include helping to mitigate "civil unrest" and performing "crowd control" it's safe to bet that at least one of these bullets will, one day, take the life of an American citizen.
