DHS TO BUY ALL AMMO PERIOD: IN THE MARKET FOR 50 BILLION .223 SHELL CASINGS

Good afternoon,
 
I was looking at the following website this morning: http://www.ar500armor.com
 
On the top of the page the site has a notice with the following information:
 
As a result from increased demand over the past few months we're experiencing delays in shipping on our Body Armor - which may go beyond stated ship times. Rest assured we want to get your armor to you as soon as possible, and are working hard to do so while maintaining our quality standards. Your business is very much appreciated! - AR500 Armor Team
 
Increased weapons and ammo demand I could understand, but I was curious as to why an armor company would see a jump in sales. So I decided to give them a call this morning and ask them what was causing such increased demand. Was it due to private citizens buying more than usual? Had the DHS, law enforcement and military recently placed large orders? Or was it simply a matter of all of the above happening at once?
 
The fellow who answered the phone was very friendly. I told him I had been to his site and was curious as to why they had such an increase in sales. "It spiked right after the November election," he told me. I then asked him who the majority of the buyers were. "Are private citizens fueling the increase in sales, or is it government types like the DHS, law enforcement and military?"
