I googled it. It's for the Fisheries department. They enforce fishing rules from shore to something like 300 miles off shore to make sure other countries are not fishing in our territorial water.

They are also universally reviled by offshore fisherman, apparently. Couldn't find a single nice thing to say about the department.

Or, if you are really conspiratorial, they are buying them to fight global warming. :cool:

Perhaps for the same reasons we do.

Total of 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W pistol ammunition, and no rifle ammo mentioned; seems weird. Not necessarily anything ominous; could well be just another example of standard govt lunacy. Seems like they'd be better off with .30 or even .50 cal rifle stuff for enforcement in international waters.

Since the climate doomsdayers are having problems getting the masses to buy their $ motivated alarmism, even after cooking the data to make their prognistagations look more pursuasive, they are now looking at other ways to get to get us to stop exhaling that planet damaging CO2.

Yep. I checked it after arriving at work. Seems they logged it wrongly to NWS instead of NOAA Fisheries.

Or one could think the idea is to take up supplies and drive the costs up!

There are many govt divisions buying large amounts of ammo.
