Conspiracy theories eh. Alex Jones covered this months ago. But, who knows that to think with that guy. As for them really stock piling hollow point bullets. I could see it. Who are they for? Well my friend, you and i. The bad americans who want to own guns and keep their second amendment?!?!

shhh don't give them any ideas.
^ This!! Antics is right, hollow points are banned by the Geneva Convention. So they can only be intended for us. Aren't we lucky?

And the list goes on and on. According to the Geneva convention, HP ammo can't be used in times of war, so WTF are they doing with this many rounds???
Besides obviously shooting their carry load for qualifications (which could be 1 to 4 times a year depending on agency) many of them train with their carry loads as well. I've seen in some instances the training loads are the same as the carry with the exception of a plain brass case instead of nickel plated brass.

Finally! Someone that knows the score.

The Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907 among other things made the first formal statements of the laws of war. The Laws of War include limits to acceptable wartime conduct to include the prohibition of certain weapons that may cause unnecessary suffering.

Laws and Customs of War on Land (Hague IV); October 18, 1907
Annex to the Convention, Regulations Respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land
Section II, Chapter I (Means of Injuring the Enemy, Sieges, and bombardments),Article 23:

In addition to the prohibitions provided by special Conventions, it is especially forbidden-…To employ arms, projectiles, or material calculated to cause unnecessary suffering;…

Yeah, this is great. We can't shoot terrorists with HP's because god forbid they suffer unnecessarily... But our own citizens? Yeah sure, why the F not?

And if you think these vehicles are meant solely for "traversing the desert", well, LOL

Yeah, those are probably going to hurt. Time to invest in body armor.
