LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Questionable requests
Question of the Day
Why does the Department of Homeland Security need 450 million rounds of .40 caliber handgun ammunition? Why does it need bullet-proof checkpoints and 300 million rounds of .357 Magnum ammunition able to penetrate the walls of a house?
Furthermore, why does the National Weather Service need 64,000 rounds of handgun ammunition delivered to points such as Ellsworth, Maine, and St. Petersburg, Fla. (“Hail of bullets? National Weather Service says ammo request was ‘clerical error,’” Web, Tuesday)? And finally, why all the new riot gear? Are they getting ready to finally face the New Black Panther Party? Oh, wait — I forgot, the New Black Panther Party is protected by Attorney Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr.
