I like to tape the weather channel

So that I can watch it later.

Why does the National Weather Service need ammo?

What NWS person is armed with a .40?

46,000 isn't much, I guess. Could be just practice stuff for one small set of security guards.

I heard that's a clerical error. So they accidentally ordered 46,000 rounds of ammo instead of, um, notepads?

If you read down to the bottom of the article, you will find that the Ammo is going to the Fisheries Dept. The Problem is, the Weather Service and the Fisheries Dept. is under NOAA, so the Supply People screwed up the order.

Now why does the Fisheries Dept. need Ammo? Why, for the Fish Police, of course.

But the Fish Police are a Legitimate LEO Dept., especially since some of "Those" Foreign Fishing Boats will come into protected Waters and illegally harvest hundreds of thousands of Dollars of Fish and take them back home. Also, some American Fishing Boats will engage in Poaching. Weerd Beard has more details on this kind of practice. But it's Legit, not some "Vast Conspiracy."
