Why Does The Department Of Homeland Security Need 450 MILLION Hollow Point Bullets?

Somebody out there has decided that the Department of Homeland Security needs a whole lot of ammunition.  Recently it was announced that ATK was awarded a contract to provide up to 450 MILLION hollow point bullets to the Department of Homeland Security over the next five years.  Is it just me, or does that sound incredibly excessive?  What in the world is the DHS going to do with 450 million rounds?  What possible event would ever require that much ammunition?  If the United States was ever invaded, it would be the job of the U.S. military to defend the country, so that can't be it.  So what are all of those bullets for?  Who does the Department of Homeland Security plan to be shooting at?  According to the U.S. Census, there are only about 311 million people living in the entire country.  So why does the Department of Homeland Security need 450 million rounds of ammunition?  Either this is an incredible waste or there is something that the Department of Homeland Security is not telling us.
I could understand if the U.S. military was ordering ammunition in this quantity.  When you fight wars you can go through ammunition very rapidly.
But the Department of Homeland Security is only supposed to be shooting at people very rarely.
It simply does not make sense that they would need so much ammunition.

Unless there are more threats to deal with than they or we know details about:
Some months ago, I came across information to the effect the Muslim Brotherhood has been in this country since the early 1970s. Add to that La Raza, Brown Berets/Aztlan, Ku Klux Klan, Black Panthers - and then my primary concern:
Johnny-Reb is likes-to-fight or night, right or wrong, win or lose & usually drunk or stoned than sober. Bubba is always right and "all y'all dayam Yankeez iz" always wrong. I've had to work with these dumb sonsofbitches - the only thing worse is working FOR one - and if they start some shit, we're all fucked.
