Skip to comments.NJ Rep. Leonard Lance: Janet Napolitano Must Explain Bullet Stockpile and Armored Vehicle Purchases
Posted on 03/18/2013 5:12:09 PM PDT by Nachum
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.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
or else..... WHAT?
Well, I sure as hell SOMEONE will ask why they need all this ammo and weapons. And shouldn’t congress have asked them many months ago????????????????????????????????????
Bet it’s not to fight at the border.
They are necessary. They are needed to ensure national security. Now shut up.
The wimps never ask the dems anything. I am done with them.
I see a beer summit in poor Rep Lance’s future.
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!
or else..... WHAT?
Or else....THIS guy gets upset!
Did congress approve the funding?
If they didn’t, they will. Hell, we’re still funding NPR, Planned Parenthood, and Obamacare, so nothing’s changed. Just where has the House stopped anything that these communists have done? Huh?
What is next, Atomic weapons?
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?
Is that “BooHoo Boehner”??
All the better to oppress the peasants, my dear.
I missed the “...WITHOUT an appropriations bill “....
Note that these are described as personal defense weapons, while less lethal weapons in the hands of US citizens are described as assault rifles.
And you would be right - you goof.
Poland isn't even on the same continent!
It's Canada they're going after - all that oil...
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.
Jus to THE COST ALONE I would like to explain that gian expenditure!!!
some of that ammo is retailing for a over a buck a shot- thats close to $2BILLION dollars for ammo and armored vehicles.
Who allocated that much budget for that?
And again, WHY??????????
That sums things up nicely, Jim
Somebody has been planning for this for some time. :(
Right now Orwell is being quoted quite freely on Twitter. Something about imagining a boot planted on the face...
I’m astounded that things devolved to this point so quickly. America had better pull its head out of its behind and fast.
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.
No explanation necessary we all already know.
I’ve had enough of living in these ‘interesting times’.
And where does she plan to park these 2700 tanks? I’m guessing
they’re for curfew enforcement...
I’m watching for high-profile ‘early retirements’ and such.
Yes, those will be necessary for everything South of Atlanta and North of Orlando.
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.
Thanks for the ping.
I suspect people ask - and each group gets a lie tailored just for them... one they’ll ‘buy’. Janet needs to come forth with ONE answer and let Americans know what she’s doing...
thought we had no money.
couldn;t even call them wimps.
I can’t even write what I think of them on here.
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...
AFAIK, all Federal employees have to take this oath. I know I did, on my first day as a Fed employee.
GREAT (and creepy) picture.
Seems like we always know what is going on in the USA long before Congress figures it out.
Does anyone know the answer to the question, "Are the vehicles and bullets for the Marines or DHS?"
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.
Reason #1 — payoff to campaign contributors, in exchange for kickbacks
Reason #2 — Fast and Furious, whatever name they’ve given it now
