ATK is one company that won a contract with the Department of Homeland Security to provide 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition in 2012.

Last Friday, New Jersey Rep. Leonard Lance (R – 7th District) told constituents that Janet Napolitano must explain to Congress why DHS has purchased 1.6 billion bullets and 2700 armored vehicles for domestic use. The purchase of thousands of fully automatic rifles for he DHS should also be explained.

As far as I’m concerned, the sock-puppet Obambi’s handlers have something horrible planned for middle Americans in a year or so. Something very terrible.

We shouldn’t be surprised at what these thugs will do (or try to do). Obambi’s to stupid on his own to do anything, so his handlers have probably conjured up something to get America in line with their dictatorship. Heaven help us!

Someone here was saying it was silly to be concerned, and that there was a perfectly reasonable justification for these purchases.

Well, are these 2700 APC's for the Marines or are they for the DHS? And is it normal for domestic agencies to buy 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition periodically or not?

Good point:

Note that these are described as “personal defense weapons”, while less lethal weapons in the hands of US citizens are described as “assault rifles”.

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

If government civil service agencies are going to stock up on "military" grade weapons for possible use against the people of the free state, then it only makes sense that the people of said free state (ie, the militia) exercise their 2nd amendment rights to stock up on same to defend themselves from the very real possibility of government overstepping its constitutional bounds, ie, tyranny and oppression.

Does anyone but the military have to take this oath?

“I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

If non military employees do not have to take an oath defending the Constitution, then it is obvious why Napalitano is buying armored vehicles and billions of rounds of ammunition. Her minions are not required to defend the 2nd Amendment.

Because they are going to need them in a big way when they confiscate all the Private 401k’s and other such Pension and Retirement Plans, all to be put into treasuries (IOU’S) and then Congress can Spend,Spend,and spend some more with all the new found money. Let’s face it, their Gun Control Agenda isn’t working out the way they planned, and We the People probably won’t be as nice and friendly as they are in Cyprus.

Can;t even get answers on fast and furious, Libya, hell Graham said he talked to them and why can;t he do more than that and where is everyone else.

what a sham this party has become, let liberals and libertarians infiltrate us, tell us we have to move more liberal, get put down off the corrupt media and then have them do our debates and then they tell the base we have to move forward

Time ot purge all of these people who pretend to be conservatives, maybe set a party up, we have what most want and yet we run away from it.

cross dressing, , feces sex, weak defence, drugs, come on GOP get some friggin balls

We are not supposed to worry about the firearms, ammo, drones, etc. that the government is stockpiling. I bet if someone announced that stuff was going to be used to secure the border there would be an uproar like never before. Seems it is ok if it might be used against “radicals” of some sort but if anyone thought it would be used at the border that could never happen. What a crazy time is in in America...

I remember reading that as well. Something about periodic contract negotiations and bulk purchases.

Does anyone know the answer to the question, "Are the vehicles and bullets for the Marines or DHS?"

?Janet Napolitano must explain to Congress why DHS has purchased 1.6 billion bullets and 2700 armored vehicles for domestic use. The purchase of thousands of fully automatic rifles for he DHS should also be explained.

I think they're secretly being shipped to the middle east to build an islamic army around Israel.
When oboma goes there, he'll demand Israel give up it's land, so oboma can be seen as a hero that brings peace to the middle east - or else the army oboma built around them will be set loose upon them. He's setting them up so they can't refuse.

Remember - oboma was born and raised a muslim. He went to a muslim school in Indonesia. He sat on a church for 20 years and herd about the evils of white people and Jews. This is what he's been taught all his life. And, the muslims claimed he was the one they've been waiting for.

This would also explain why there's a cover up over Bengazi. Maybe the weapons were passing through there.

I read of the factory operated by a contractor that makes the ammunition for the U.S. Army. So the Army already has its source. What’s all the other for?

Obviously it’s not for fighting whoever the Army is fighting.
