Why is the DHS Placing Orders for 450 million rounds of .40 Caliber ammo?

I had a hard time believing this at first, it was being mostly reported by conspiracy sites that don't always cite reputable sources but after some digging I found the source. So while Eric Holder and the Obama administration is concerned with brainwashing you into not wanting guns; the DHS is purchasing enough ammunition to kill every man, woman and child in the country. The claim is that it's for their over 200,000 employees. First, let's say this was harmless and not any cause for concern-why in the world does the DHS have 200,000 employees?!
