Palin Wonders Too! What Do They Need All That Ammo For?

SEE HERE I thought it might be fun to do a little top of the head calculation. I googled around and got about 200,000 for the number of people employed by homeland security. Obviously they are not all armed nor do they all require firearms proficiency. But let's just assume they are then how many rounds would each one get to fire if 1.6 billion rounds were purchased? You get 8000 rounds for every employee. Now that's a lot of training especially since it's likely that the number of armed DHS employees is perhaps 20% (sounds high to me) which would take it up to 40,000 rounds each. Hard to figure what they need all that hollow point ammo for?
